China Glaze Crackle Metals

UPDATE: I haven't been painting my nails very often during the last few months. In January I got UV Gel nails applied, and silly me, I thought it was the nice easy on your nails soak off color gel. Boy was I wrong. I had them on for bout 2 weeks and loved them, but I picked up playing the violin again and had to cut my nails short. When I went to the salon to have them removed I was shocked when the nail tech took out one of those drill files to remove the gel... and most of the surface of my nail bed. Needless to say I was traumatized for a few weeks, until I got used to my new ultra short paper thin scuffed up visible pink nail surface peeling nails. I have still painted my nails from time to time, but they are nowhere near how they used to be. The good news is that the damage is ALMOST done growing out but it will be sometime in the summer until they are back 100%. 
Today I ordered China Glaze Crackle "Broken Hearted" from Sally Beauty Supply. I have "Lightening Bolt" and "Crushed Candy", but I am dreaming of a nice yellow (IMO, the "It" color of summer 2011) with some pink crackle layered over it.

While on my search I came across this information. China Glaze is releasing a metallic crackle line!! I know OPI is releasing a few more shatter colors, but only one metallic (silver, which comes out in May). I wonder how the formula is going t be on these. I heard some complaints about China Glaze "Fault Line", which was a purple with a metallic sheen. A few people said that it might have been due to the metallic finish. I guess only time will tell for these ones! 
I am super excited for the gold and aqua ones!
