Zoya: Stacy and Bronze Crackle

This is Zoya's Stacy.  Two coats later I had a very rich merlot red on my paws.  I'm not the biggest fan on the Zoya brushes... long and skinny, but I make it work for colors as awesome as this :) I got this polish from Amber C. over at Rainbows and Sparkles for her 50 follower giveaway.  Great color to win because I would never really lean towards getting a red. I still think I don't look great in them, but of course if I like a color, I will wear it and wear it with confidence! That's the fun of nail polish!

In continuing with my journey of trying out the new La rosa crackles I got, I picked up the bronze one for Stacy.  This crackle color is also very awesome.

It cracked well and also is one of the more shimmery ones. I included a close up of the bottle taken in my lightbox for you to see. I guess it looks a bit more gold in the pictures but I would say it's a cross between gold and bronze because it has that burnt orange that bronze has.

What do you guys think of this crackle? I like it over a rich creme color and the fact that it has shimmer/glitter and applies like a normal lacquer would, is all a huge plus. 

Do you think China Glaze and OPI get upset when other companies (and each other) come out with the polishes that have the same idea? As a consumer, I think having a choice is nice because these were less expensive and had more colors and easily available to me. Win all around.


  1. stacy looks gorgeous... but i'm still not sure for this bronze crackle ;-)
    althought, the combo is great :-D

  2. I love the bronze crackle. I will definitely have to pick up this one -- I'm a sucker for anything bronze. How opaque is the Stacy? It almost looks like a bit of a jelly unless it's a trick of the camera.

  3. CC- Stacy is pretty opaque, 2 coats and you're good to go and it finishes like a jelly but applies like a creme.
    NC- Ya the bronze sparkly crackle is a look I have to get used to but was OK with it after I looked at it a while :D
    BN- Thanks!!

  4. I like the crackle over this red, the shimmer in it is really pretty. Do you think it would look nice over a navy blue? Or would a more gold-toned crackle be better?

  5. I think it would look great over a navy! I'll go through my stash and see what I have that comes close to navy and try it out :)

  6. Great, great combo!
    I just got Stacy also... so excited to try her :D
