Midtown Magic

I got only three polishes from the China Glaze Metro collection, and this is one of them: Midtown Magic.





Two coats. This is exactly what I expect from a China Glaze fall color - in a good way. A dark, vampy shimmer. Deep, deep plum purple. In the bottle it looks absolutely astonishing, so I couldn't not try this one out first. What is visible in the bottle, only subtly shows up on the nail, at least compared to the totally gorgeous sparkles seen through the bottle glass. But that's okay. Also, I'm guessing you could make more of it surface by doing very thin coats, instead of the pretty fluent ones I did.

I could barely keep my eyes open last night when I did this manicure, but I still managed! Sadly, I'm almost as tired today, which is why my writings seem so strange - at least to me. But hey, I posted a pretty polish!

  1. NYX Deep Space-lack är nog en dupe av den här!

  2. Lojs: Nej, men visst påminner de om varandra! Deep SPace har svart bas och mer fleck-skimmer.

  3. Super snyggt med det där skimmrande röda glittret. :)

  4. Så kanske det är, fast jag har nog aldrig sett Deep Space som särskillt svart. Fina är dem båda två dock <:

  8. Det ser fantastiskt ut! Fick hem sex av Metro-lacken i dag och det här är nog det jag tycker ser finast ut i flaskan.

  9. Det är bara du som kan få mig att vackla så betänkligt när jag bestämt mig för att inte skaffa ett visst lack. Nu vill jag ha det här och jag hade inte tänkt det alls. Nej. Jag ska nu försöka glömma de här bilderna. :D

  11. oooh! Loving your shots of this shade. I have this shade coming from a friend who told me not to buy a couple of the metro shades as she had gotten them for both of us in an early access she had to the release date. Hopefully that package gets to me soon or I might go looking for it myself! I already have Skyscraper out of metro and really think it's great despite it's glitter. I love the denim shade it has to it yet it's anything but dead looking.

  12. Oh, very pretty! It's a little too dark for me but it looks beautiful. :)

  13. Very beautiful on you! Do you know how Midnight Magic compares to OPI Tease-Y Does It or OPI Holiday Glow?

  14. Chester: I'm pretty sure they're not that close at all, but if you're still not convinced, I can do a quick comp. :)
