Fall '11 Watch: China Glaze Trendsetter
It's a gorgeous day in LA! What is everyone up to? I did a lot of swatching and photographing this morning, and am about to head out to do some dusty hunting and look for old nail polish favorites! Although being so nice out, I may let myself be derailed and lay out by the pool for a few hours - we shall see.
Now that I'm all setup in my new apartment with my shiny new light tent, I am soooo ready to start whipping out the fall polishes! At least over the next few days, if not weeks, I'm going to be taking a look at all the new polishes released this fall. Some brands have left a lot to be desired with their fall collections - I'm looking at you, OPI Touring America! - but others have really stepped up to the plate and brought awesome us awesome colors and textures!
Today I picked out a color perfect for transitioning from summer to fall, China Glaze Trendsetter. Trendsetter is a mustard yellow polish with the most gorgeous yellow gold shimmer. This polish is so atypical from my normal style! I tend to shy away from warm-toned polishes, but since discovering my love for olive green/ugly pretty polishes like RBL No More War, I've been out hunting and buying up everything remotely in the color family. Including Trendsetter.
And just because it's a stunner, I did a close up to really show off the shimmer:
Trendsetter is even more amazing because when you see the bottle at first you think 'ooh, might there be a shimmer in there?' but when it's on the nail, the shimmer is so much brighter and noticeable!
Trendsetter was released as a part of China Glaze's fall 2011 Metro Collection. Polishes retail for $6-$8 each for a 0.5 fl oz bottle. Check back soon for more swatches and reviews of other polishes from the Metro Collection!
