china glaze vintage vixen pt. 3

this is the last installment of the china glaze vintage vixen collection for fall of 2010. these colors are all unbelievably luxe and i am way impressed with the formulation on all of them. i hope these swatches have whet your appetite enough to look forward to their release in stores soon!
jitterbug is sexy sexy blueish silver-grey glitz!  i pretty much LOVE it! china glaze's description says its a "grey chrome with silver microglitter". idk it definitely has a "blueish" cast in my eyes. the microglitter is right tho, i don't think you can pack much more bling into this baby!

foxy is a color that i would probably pass by on the shelves.  it just doesn't do much for me in the bottle.  however, once i got it on, i understood it's magnitude.  and it's definitely FOXY!  a fox kind of red rust burgundy with a nice shimmery sheen. my brush on this one was wonky, the bristles were all over the place, which is the first time that has ever happened to me with a china glaze polish.  i've had plenty of cockeyed essie and zoya brushes before, but never a chg.  oh well, i guess it happens to the best of them.  it wasn't a big deal to fix though, i just cleaned the brush with remover and snipped away the extra fly away bits of hair.  voila!  fixed. and you would never be able to tell from this polish job, eh?

swing baby is HARDCORE BADASS!!!  i did not want to take this lover off my nails!  metallic taupe with frosty shimmery microglitter, uhhhh yes please!  this kind of polish wears like iron and looks magic from day 1 to day 5, it's just infallible!  plus, you know i love the goldy colors, and this guy definitely qualifies :)

goin' my way? is a nice yummy brown with a copper shimmer.  i thought this one too would be another ho-hum polish that i would probably pass up in the store, and unfortunately also had another wonky brush, but once i got the brush fixed and the first coat on my nails, my jaw hung open in surprise.  it is seriously beautiful and complex, like most of the other colors in this collection, i can't think of another polish i have like this guy.  love it!

so *sigh* that's it for now. i can't wait til the next collection china glaze comes out with hits the news. one entire drawer of my helmer is full of china glaze polishes!!  i had no idea i was such a fiend!  but they're easily accessible, price worthy, have awesome color choices, and a wonderful formula reputation.  *tips my hat* here's to you china glaze!
