China Glaze Hey Doll

When I first read the release of Vintage Vixen, China Glaze's 2010 Fall Collection, I was most excited about Hey Doll, which was listed as a rose frost with shimmer.  I adore rose colored nail polishes since that's what my Mom wore when I was a little girl.  Actually it may have been more of a rose gold, but it was just very classic, elegant, and hey, it was Mom.

I used Seche Natural for my base, 2 coats of Hey Doll and topped with Seche Vite.  Unfortunately, I did not fall in love with this polish.

Oddly enough, the shimmer is pretty muted and the rose was almost too brown for me.  I have a hard time calling this a "red" until I put it against the browns of the collection - then you can tell it's red.  But if I just picked this bottle up on its own, I'd be slightly confused.

More oddly still, in the indirect sun, there was almost a raisin purple brown showing.  This color just didn't win my heart, and that makes me a sad panda.

  1. I'm really looking forward to this collection. This color is the first one, I decided that I need. I've now come to the conclusion that I need most of them! lol

    By the way, I just started a nail blog. I would love to have you follow, if interested. :-)

  2. I actually kinda like it. It would look nice with my new tunic. :)

  3. Gotta get a few from this collection. Nice mani.
