Nail of the Day: China Glaze Midtown Magic

Today's NOTD is Midtown Magic, another color from China Glaze's Metro collection for fall. This is a deep brown with gold and bronze shimmer, and to be honest, I only bought it because China Glaze was 2 for $9 and I needed a second color to complete my purchase. I thought it looked pretty in the bottle and had potential, but I really didn't experience the true "magic" of this shade until I painted it on my nails... wow!!

I'm not usually someone who likes the so-dark-its-almost-black look on the nails, but as soon as I painted this, I fell in love. Something about the gold and bronze shimmer keeps this polish from looking too dark on the nails. It allows you to get an edgy, dark vibe while keeping it a bit light at the same time. My mom even complimented me on this color, which says a lot coming from a woman who usually only wears nail polish on her toes because its too bright for the fingers.

I decided to include a second photo of this too give you a different look at the shimmer:

This may be my favorite super-dark polish yet! Do you like wearing really dark polishes on your nails?

  3. I love wearing dark polish! But I hate what it looks like when it starts to chip. :\ This color reminds me of "Lincoln Park After Dark".
