China Glaze Fall 2011 Metro Collection - Mini set swatches!

I'm really excited to show you these! My sister surprised me yesterday with a mini set of the new China Glaze Metro collection for Fall 2011! There are 4 colors in this mini set, but the full collection will include 12 polishes and is set for release this month.

Sky Scraper, CG in the City, Urban-Nights, Midtown Magic

Sky Scraper  - I loved this one! It reminds me of a galaxy, or city lights when you're flying in an airplane! It's a pretty navy blue jelly base with silver glitter. I love how well the silver glitter shows through the blue! 2 coats.

CG in the City - I wasn't loving this on it's own.... It definitely needs to be layered! It is a clear base with black, silver, and purple glitters. 3 coats.

Urban-Night - A plum-purple creme. This one is beautiful! Now I see what people mean by a "squishy" polish.... Urban-Night definitely has a different texture than any old creme. Almost like a transparent creme. 2 coats, could have used 3.

Midtown Magic - This was the problem child when it comes to pictures. When I painted it on, it was a very deep, blackened plum with gold glitter. Does that picture up there look purple to you? Nope! The gold glitter makes this one look brown with bronzey shimmer. Beautiful, regardless! 2 coats.

I have included some pictures of the rest of the collection.... These are beautiful colors for fall! I can't wait to see them in person! As soon as I get a hold of them, I will post them for you!


What do you  think of China Glaze's new colors? Which of these are must-haves for your collection?

  12. Some pretty and interesting. But so hard to tell from this press release which is all that is out there so far. The color swatch graphics could be way off. I personally miss seeing something from CG with glass fleck in it in any collection. Any idea if these are the ones that will be released through Sally's or is CG going to do that funky thing where some are only at non Sally retailers like Drugstore.com? I really hated what they did with their collections this spring 2011 splitting them off from Sally's. It's the whole reason why I buy a Sally's card is to load up on CG every year and get a discount!
