China Glaze Classic Camel

 The reason for the title is because today I bought a color that I wasn't immediately drawn to.. Not when I saw swathes online or  after seeing it in person several times. For some reason, I picked it up today... And lucky for me the Sun was shinning through the window of the store and what I saw made my jaw dropped a little... The color is speak of is...

 China Glaze' - Classic Camel
Vintage Vixen Collection
Artificial Light w/o flash. Very color accurate. Click for larger image.
  "Classic Camel" is a half accurate name. This is a true "camel" color, that much is true.. However, this one is a little special as it has micro gold and bronze sparkles in it that make it stunning when the sun hits it as it turns it into more of a Golden Camel while not being metallic.... Ahhh! Just Stunning!! :). In the picture above I have two coats of "Classic Camel" and two coats of Seche Vite as it did not dry very smoothly which is the only negative I noticed about it. It applied very smoothly and it is VERY pigmented. You could probably get away with one coat. This is a really beautiful color and while it may look dull in the bottle and fluorescent lighting , it's really a very unique color in its own right. It was the find of the day!

Here it is with the addition of very subtle stamping...
I edited the photo to look antiqued. I was feeling the "vintage vibe".
Until my next post,

  1. Looks good on you but I think it would look horrible on me! LOL

  2. So pretty! I think a lot of folks are sleepin' on this one. This was my first lemming from the VV collex when swatches were posted. Glad I picked it up...

  3. I'm glad I have it. I was actually kinda sad when I was taking it off because the color really suited my skin tone even though in this picture it looks a liitle weird. I actually really like this. :)

  4. Looks good on you but I think it would look horrible on me! LOL
