China Glaze Ingrid

You all know this polish, right? When China Glaze’s fall collection — Vintage Vixen — came out, Ingrid quickly became the must have polish of the season. Or the collection, at least.

Well, I made up my mind to order Bogie and Ingrid even before I saw the swatches for the names alone. I mean, Bogie and Ingrid? I needed those polishes in my life. And when the swatches started coming out, I got really excited waiting for my Ingrid package. I built it up in my mind to something impossibly pretty — this light perfectly balanced taupe with barely there shimmer. Elegance in a bottle.

When the bottle came I was slightly disappointed. I’d expected something along the lines of MAC’s Earthly Harmony and got Ingrid, which is a medium brown side taupe with noticeable gold micro-glitter. Well, my very first thought was that it was just a shiny brown. ๐Ÿ˜›

It’s not. I quickly learned to love the polish. It is elegant and understated, but a little bit mischievous too with its golden sparkle. It quickly became one of my favourite polishes for the autumn, and I’m really pleased to have it on my nails again. ๐Ÿ™‚

I used two coats of the polish for perfect opacity and a coat of Seche Vite on top for that high gloss finish that allows the micro-glitter to really show itself.

I really like how the muted greyish-brown of the base contrasts with the vivid golden micro-glitter.ย  The sparkle is present (if not very noticeable) even in low light, but never over the top.

This makes the polish absolutely perfect in my opinion. For a taupe lover, it’s a must. ๐Ÿ˜€



I get my China Glaze polishes from eBay seller beautyzone2007.
