China Glaze Midtown Magic


China Glaze Midtown Magic

As many had undoubtedly noticed, I took a very long hiatus from the blog in 2011. I just lost interest in nail polish, for the most part. So I remember very well the nail polish that brought me out of that funk: this one, Midtown Magic. I don't know what it is about this deliciously dark mahogany polish but the gold and red shimmer in this polish felt so elegant and playful at the same time. It's maybe not the most original polish but it is a lovely example of this color/shimmer combo. Two coats. Kept it on for days.

Oh, I love this polish! I still don't know why it isn't already part of my collection??? Thanks for the swatch.

Angie said...

This is one of my favorite polishes from last year, it's just so gorgeous!

Welcome back! I had completely forgotten I own this polish. I know what manicure I'm doing tomorrow!

I always veer between wanting and not wanting this, but you make it look gorgeous!

It's one of my favourite polishes of the last year! I really like it ♥

Another lady lost in space! Glad you also are back. Missed you. This is a gorgeous shade. Those two shimmer make this a very special polish. I have to check & see if I own it. If I don't I must.

Love this shade out of that collection...also liked Skyscraper. Glad to see you have time to post again - you were missed.

Oh my gosh, YES! I currently have this polish on as well. Every time when I decide to paint my nails with Midtown Magic, I would keep doing it with this color for weeks! It's so amazing. I never dislike this color unlike many other nail polishes that I have.

Cristina: it's definitely worth adding to any collection.

Angie: I was definitely not expecting to love it but man, it really is gorgeous.

Lacqueredlady: It's good to be back, though... I won't be doing nail swatches or NOTDs for a little bit. I was in a terrible mood the other day and accidentally overnubbinized my nails. :(

mylittlevanities: thanks!

Koteika: it is so pretty, isn't it?

Lucy: You have to have it. Really.

beachgal: I haven't tried Skyscraper yet! It's been languishing in my "try on soon" box that I keep under the living room couch.

Eileenie: I've only worn it once but I think I may do another mani with it soon!
