NOTD: China Glaze Midtown Magic from the Metro Collection


China Glaze Midtown Magic

I’m so excited that fall is finally here, so today’s NOTD is fall inspired.  China Glaze Metro Collection is the new 12 piece nail collection for fall 2011. It’s inspired by city loving celebrities.  The collection is divided into two mini collections, Uptown and Downtown.  Uptown includes CG In The City, Urban-Night, Traffic Jam, City Siren and Street Chic and Brownstone.  Downtown includes Skyscraper, Concrete Catwalk, Westside Warrior, Trendsetter, Loft-y Ambitions and Midtown Magic.  This last one is what I’m focusing on here.

Midtown Magic is a deep dark plumy brown with a ton of bronze, gold, and green shimmer.  On the nail, the bronze shimmer is what really stands out.  It’s super dark, and only needs two coats.  The Metro Collection as a whole didn’t impress me, but as soon as I saw Midtown Magic, I knew that I had to get it.  Midtown Magic and Westside Warrior (a funky green) are the stand out shades in my opinion.  This is a great polish for fall, so be sure to check it out.  I got my bottle at Sally’s for $5.99.  China Glaze is also available at Ulta.


About beautyinbudgetblog

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
