china glaze vintage vixen pt. 1

what's up blog-o-sphere? i have for you today a very highly anticipated collection from the geniuses over at china glaze headquarters. yep, that's right, the fall vintage vixen collection! 1940's style at it's hippest, these colors are inspired by the swinging times of old but old hardly describes their hotness! i was super excited to get my hands on this collection and i happily report that they did not disappoint!

first up are (l to r): classic camel, first class ticket, hey doll, and riveter rouge.



classic camel is described as a khaki crème with gold micro glitter. i compare it to dijon mustard, a gorgeous brownish yellow with dark gold shimmer. i am CRAZY over this color! it may not be most people's cup of tea, but i fell head over heels with this guy.

first class ticket seemed pretty ho-hum to me, actually despite it's obvious gorgeousness. i feel like we've seen a lot of these purples lately. but this polish has something the others don't. turquoise shimmer! yep, and lots of it. i could do without the sightly frostyness but otherwise, this turned out to be a winner.

hey doll was one of the polishes i was most anxious to try. it's described as a rose frost with shimmer. i agree and love that a pink found it's way into this collection, as i wasn't sure one would with the vintage theme. i have a feeling this gal will be one of the first shades that is sold out from the collection once it hits stores.

riveter rouge is the PERFECT name for this lacquer. the gorgeous red polish looks as if it has tiny rivets in it! and of course it makes me think of our girl-power spokesperson from the era, Rosie the Riveter. awesome polish! absolutely sparkles in the sun :D
