China Glaze Hey Doll

 Reminder: Sinful Colors are on sale this week at Walgreens for 99 cents each!

I only picked up a few colors from the China Glaze Vintage Vixen collection. At first I wasn't really impressed, but over time I'm growing rather fond of the colors. I may be doing another haul of them soon. One of the colors I picked up the first time was "Hey Doll"

Hey Doll
I'd call Hey Doll a rusty rose with silvery metallic frost. Personally I really love this color. I've read many other unfavorable reviews about this color. It seems to be one of the colors in the collection that gets put back on the back burner. To each their own, but I really like it. I like the fact that it reads almost as neutral with a hint of pink. I think this would be wearable with any color outfit. If you're ever looking for a polish that maybe more subdued, but you don't want to go as safe as nude or sheer, I think Hey Doll would be a great way to go. It has a nice hint of color with metallic finish.

I also really like that this a fall pink color. I noticed when doing my "Fall Favorites" post I didn't have many fall-like pinks. I'm wondering if that's just me or if pink really isn't a color that translate well into fall. While looking through Zoya, OPI, and Color Club  fall collections there are not any pinks in them. There are berries and purples, but no pinks or variations of pinks. I'm wondering if that's because more fall like pinks  come off as more mature since they tend to be dusty roses or mauve. Hmph. I know those colors are not the most appealing, which maybe why Hey Doll isn't getting too much attention. Oh well,  I like it! :P

Can anyone think of some fall-like pinks that you like?

Happy Sunday!
