China Glaze Strike Up a Cosmo

I'm very very picky when it comes to metallic nail polish. I don't like metallic shimmers or chromes. You know the ones that look like flat metallic color? I hate them. I can't really tell you why I hate them, I just do. What I do like are metallic foils. I love metallics that are multi-dimensional. I was initially going to bypass the China Glaze Autumn Nights collection, but when I saw they had foils I was game. This one caught my eye.

Strike Up a Cosmo
Strike Up a Cosmos is a dustry rose metallic foil with subtle gold and silver foil flecks mixed in.

Color: Pinks hardly ever make it into fall collections. I know it's hard to do a fall pink, but China Glaze was succcessful with this one. What I like about this shade is it definitely reads as a neutral, so it is very wearable with any skin tone or outfit.

Formula: Excellent, one coater formula.

Price: I purchased this at Sally's Beauty Supply in the $5-$7 range.

Overall: This is a great not-your-average, but totally works for fall color. This would be excellent in winter and holidays. I really like this, and I found myself wearing this a few times already. Metallic pink for the win!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Friday!
