China Glaze Trendsetter

Hey guys!  I just got back from the Nationals v. Braves baseball game that I went to with the boyfriend and a couple of good friends.  Today I decided to go with a new Fall polish that fits the trend of ugly pretty perfectly.  This is China Glaze Trendsetter from the Fall Metro collection.  It's 3 Free and a yellow tinged dusty green packed with micro-shimmer. 
2 coats Trendsetter + Seche Vite, natural light
As I said yesterday, yellows can be terrible formula-wise.  I know - this isn't a yellow.  However, this seems to yellow/green combo and I as concerned that this could be problematic.  It's actually pretty great.  The first coat is definitely not perfectly even, but the second coat is smooth.  I was actually shocked when I painted this on and noticed that there was a shimmer in this.  It looked like a straight up creme when I grabbed the bottle, but it's totally shimmery.  I'm not positive when the official release is, but I was able to snag this off of evilbay last week.  My boyfriend says this looks like green pee, but he doesn't know much about the whole ugly but pretty fad.



  1. I got it off 8ty8 last week. I loooove this. I hate it at the same time... but I love it. I might wear it tomorrow.

  2. This is one of the few colors I actually want from the Metro collection.
