China Glaze Vintage Vixen Part Two

I finally have the other two polishes from Vintage Vixen for you. My pictures of Emerald Fitzgerald are not so hot, but I'll take more when I do the comparison post for it. It just randomly gets really cloudy here lately!

China Glaze Ingrid, three coats, no flash

First up is Ingrid. I really love this one!! It's surprising to me that I love the two neutral polishes as much as I do. Ingrid and Classic Camel are really going to get a lot of wear from me. Ingrid is a pretty taupe-y/greige-y color with plenty of golden shimmer packed in there. I did three coats and I think the third coat really brought out the shimmer. The formula was good, maybe a little streaky on the first two coats, but the third coat really evened it out. The gold shimmer makes this one different from all the other taupe polishes out there. This is definitely a Must Have for me!

Ahhh Emerald Fitzgerald. You would think this would be my favorite of the collection, right? What with my strong obsession with green polish and all. But, no. Honestly, it is winter Watermelon Rind. I love China Glaze Watermelon Rind, but this is the same polish, just darker. I'll definitely do a comparison post for these two polishes to see how close they really are. Emerald Fitzgerald is pretty, definitely. I did two coats here and you can see it looks maybe a little patchy in some places. Overall, it's just not thrilling me. I would not call it a Must Have, especially if you have Watermelon Rind.

My thoughts on Vintage Vixen as a whole-
1. I'm glad they didn't do a collection of all.most cremes. I am bored to death of cremes.
2. Ingrid, Classic Camel, and First Class Ticket are gorgeous and unique. Go buy them now.
3. Too many reds.
4. I just can't wait for CG Halloween and OPI Holiday, so I just think every collection until then is going to bore me a little.

Anyway, the collection is definitely worth a look. If your collection is missing some exciting neutrals, pick up Ingrid and Classic Camel.

The China Glaze Vintage Vixen Collection is available online at Transdesign.

I usually don't like brown/taupe colours but I really like Ingrid. Emerald Fitzgerald was a bit disappointing as much as I love green polishes.

Wow, I wasn't planning on getting Emerald Fitz but it's looking pretty sweet here! I think I need to add it to my list, haha.

I'm actually loving Ingrid...I can't really put my finger on why I love it, but it seems to flatter every person I've seen it on. Emerald Fitzgerald is nice, too!

Serena- Ingrid was a total surprise to me!! I never wear taupe/brown, but I will be wearing this a lot! And I agree about Emerald Fitzgerald. I don't know why I'm not loving it.

Ping- It really is a good green. I don't know why I'm not raving about it, but don't let that stop you from loving it!

Aurora's Nails- I love it too, and I think it's a nice step up from some of the other taupes we've seen because it has that gorgeous shimmer!

Tiana- I'm considering including a few brand new polishes from this collection in a giveaway, so stay tuned! And thanks about my nails! They're very short here, but to be honest, I prefer them that way!
