China Glaze Ingrid



This is another one of those bottles from the Vintage Vixen collection that I kind of just looked at going "um"?  Thankfully Ingrid is not an "um" color!  Listed as "greige creme with copper microglitter."  Okay seriously, what is greige?  Merriam-Webster says that it's "being in an unbleached undyed state as taken from a loom - used of textiles".  Ohhh, it's a French word.  That explains it.


Okay back to reality - so I was really excited about the copper microglitter.  If you remember from the other day, Goin' My Way? had a copper shimmer... you know I'm not the biggest fan of gold (in jewelry especially) but copper is pretty neat.


I used Seche Retain for my base (had some nail issues), only one coat of Ingrid, and topped with some Seche Vite.  The formula on this was the same as the others but with more opacity, so I only needed one coat.


Look at this beautiful application!  It's just the right color of muddy brown and I love it.


I think this is one of those colors that is like Rescue Beauty Lounge "No More War".  I think you're either going to love it or hate it.


Heh you can see my camera and other hand in this indirect sun picture.  No shade - I kept getting green hands.


You really didn't see as much of the microglitter in this shade, but that was okay with me!  In the bottle, up close, you can see it suspended in the creme, but on the nail, not so much.  Overall, this is a definite keeper.

  1. I actually really like this color.
    I'm not too keen on the vintage vixen collection...but it might be because i' m not in the fall mood yet. I go like how you can't really see the shimmer but it is there
