China Glaze Trendsetter

I love China Glaze.  I've loved them ever since I got (back) into nail polish back in mid 2009.  I would own every single color if I could and never buy another brand again.  (Oh yes, I said that.)  But honestly, I hate this color.

Trendsetter is a NYC mustard brown with gold shimmer.  At least, I think this is what NYC mustard looks like.  I'm going off super limited knowledge of one episode of "Girls Next Door" that was on at the gym one night.  This polish was from the fall 2011 Metro collection.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  Formula was a little thick on the brush but then would be runny on the nails, so as always, thin coats to win.

This color is definitely darker that OPI Simply Smash-ing and more opaque.  The boyfriend hated this color, and normally he's pretty forgiving and interested in what I'm wearing (even the blues, which I'm always iffy on).

I like this color much more in the shade.  You can see the shimmer, it doesn't completely clash with my skin tone... I'm liking you a little better, Trendsetter.

This is another one of those polishes that doesn't like to be focused on with the flash.  Or I just suck at being still - either way, I apologize for the blurriness.  Indoors with the flash and you can see the shimmer and the unique brown yellow of this polish.  This will probably sit on my shelf for a good long time, I'm telling you right now.

China Glaze can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe Beauty, Sally's Beauty Supply as well as TransDesign.  You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
