China Glaze METRO Swatches
These shades are out and you can still score them at ULTA stores if you haven’t yet. I don’t have all 12 shades, but these would hopefully help y’all. I’m posting swatches in the order of the press release.
First up is CG In The City.
CG In The City is made up of fine glitter in gold, silver, purple, bronze, and maybe a few other colors in a clear base. Formula for this is pleasant for a glitter shade. Definitely would be good for layering over other shades. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Up next is Traffic Jam.
The creme shade that totally caught me eye is Traffic Jam. It’s my favorite creme from this entire collection. Formula was very rich and smooth. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next is a red creme called City Siren.
Every collection has to have a red creme and in this collection, it’s City Siren. Formula was really good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
A red shimmer that I definitely wanted the moment I laid my eyes on is Loft-y Ambitions.
Described as “burgundy shimmer and cocktail hour – nothing better”, this color definitely steals the spotlight. I have had several people asking me what this one is when I had it on. Formula was good to work with. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
The most interesting one in this collection is Midtown Magic.
I mean, just look at it. It’s amazing. It makes me think of shades like Wagon Trail. A mix of all kinds of goodness in this shimmery shade. Formula was great and it dries really fast. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next up is a brown creme called Street Chic.
Street Chic is one of the shades that surprised me in this collection. I didn’t think a light brown creme shade like this would be part of a Fall collection. I was expecting darker browns. This one applied nicely and gave me no problems. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next up is Concrete Catwalk.
This one’s described as a “steel grey” creme shade, but this ones much darker than what I pictured “steel grey” to be. Formula was just as good as all the other creme shades in this collection. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Last one I have is Westside Warrior.
Everyone needs a camo green shade in their collection. In my opinion, Westside Warrior embodies this color perfectly. This rich creme shade applied onto my nails smoothly. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Overall, pretty good. There were more cremes than I expected, but Traffic Jam alone got me so excited about the entire collection. A clear win for China Glaze in my book.
I got 4 of these sent to me for review. I had to get the rest from a beauty supply store, but they were out of Skyscraper. Other than that, I pretty much have all the shades I want in from this collection.
