In truth we’re late to the game with this Vintage Vixen review, we actually received these shades in June. So, why the delay? Here’s the problem, this gorgeous Fall collection is filled with rich, downright sultry colors. Shades that make you think of vintage tweed suits and camel coats with plush fake fur collars, or sitting by a fire with a snifter of Brandy. And I simply couldn’t put them on my fingers in June! Though I know polish releases are timed similar to fashion releases (where it’s not uncommon to see bathing suits on the runway right around the time you change to a heavier comforter), I couldn’t wrap my head around a vampy nail while eating a popsicle!
So, here we are in November and I am now loving the Vintage Vixen collection. And I have a feeling that is going to be a sentiment shared by our review team. How could you not love these shades? Take a closer look at the lushness…
Goin’ My Way – Brown frost with copper shimmer
Hey Doll – Rose frost with shimmer
Jitterbug – Grey chrome with silver micro glitter
Midnight Mission – Navy blue frost with silver micro glitter
Ingrid – “Greige” crème with copper micro glitter
Bogie – Plum frost with shimmer
Classic Camel – Khaki crème with gold micro glitter
Emerald Fitzgerald – Turquoise green frost with shimmer
First Class Ticket – Deep purple frost with shimmer
Swing Baby – Taupe frost with silver micro glitter
Foxy – Burgundy frost with shimmer
Riveter Rouge – Deep red shimmer
I simply couldn’t resist Ingrid, that sultry taupe seen in the top photo and at left, so she simply had to be mine. And oh, am I glad we met! The slight glittery copper sheen that this has keeps it from being too “greige” and adds a touch of dimension to what could be really flat. I can see this being on my nails for the next 3 months!
So Dolls, what did you think of the come hither shades of the Vintage Vixen collection? Are your nails going to sport anything else during these chilly months?[ratings]
