I’ve already tried the only UK gold crackle from Boots 17 and also one that a very kind blog friend sent me from Germany from a brand called P2 (she also sent me some really amazing yellow and orange shades about which I’ll post another time) but neither of them really were what I was after. They’re just too muted and dull – I wanted a really blingy gold to put over hot oranges and reds to look sizzling in the summer.
On my way to Cosmoprof in Italy, I happened to be seated on the plane next to a lovely lady called Thea who turned out to be the MD of Nails Inc, so like a stuck record I moaned on and on about how nobody was making a decent gold crackle. She said, ‘I’ll make you one.’ AND, she has! I got it in the post yesterday and it is exactly what I was looking for. The polish formula is thin enough to give a really sheer crackle effect but has enough shimmering pigment to make it really stand out.
Am even more delighted that Nails Inc have decided to make it available to buy in about 4 weeks time. Its working name at the moment is Farringdon.
It’s shown in the pictures over By Terry Terrybly Nail Laque Eccentric Vermillion at Space NK which is all kinds of gorgeous. Expensive at £20 a bottle, but it genuinely has a luxury feel – the formula is super smooth and has the most impressive gloss finish I think I’ve ever seen on a polish.

Talk about it’s not what you know, but who you know!! Yippeeee it looks GORGEOUS. Exciting stuff x
looks gorgeous!far nicer than the boots 17 crackle x
was going to say the same as Leanne! How fab to be sat with Thea and to get this as a result!
Geez, talk about right place, right person! And wasn’t that something for her to go ahead and make the product. I wonder if she’s heard that complaint from other women, but yours cinched the deal.
I’d love to try that over my China Glaze “Ruby Deer”, currently my fav red.
Omg isn’t that like having one of your dream dinner guests! I’m a big Nails Inc fan so will be looking forward to this and I shall think of you when my nails are splattered with gold 😉
Hi, Do you know if this is going to be sold at all? You mentioned 4 weeks in your post, but that was nearly 2 months ago and I haven’t seen this for sale yet. Many thanks!
Hi Anitacska: funny you ask this – I chased the PRs up last week and it really should be any day now…. not sure why the delay.
update: I heard from the PRs this is scheduled for June launch.
Yay, thank you so much for chasing it up! 😀 Really excited about it, I’ve been wanting it ever since I saw it here.
