I’ve got a special polish today. I mentioned in a previous post that I had gone to one of my favorite beauty supply stores this past weekend along with my boyfriend. He was the reason I was there in the first place, he’s hooked on Paul Mitchell Tea Tree products and had to replenish his supplies. Of course I had fists full of polish within the first 30 seconds, but while perusing there was a make shift display labeled “Discontinued China Glaze” I only glanced at the polishes in the front and moved on. I guess I was too overwhelmed and anxious to look at everything else I didn’t bother to dig. Well as my back was turned, my super awesome super hero of a boyfriend picked up a bottle and mentioned it looked kinda cool. I turned around and lo and behold he is holding a bottle of Midtown Magic. Which just so happens to be one of those polishes on my wish list I thought I would never come across in person. I let out a huge GASP , my face probably did this: and freaked out. My boyfriend is magical….
He was so proud of himself because he picked out a “really cool looking” polish AND it was one of my HTF wish list items. He even bought it for me, with a huge grin of achievement all over his face. Of course he immediately said I had to write a blog post about this and give him proper credit. So here’s your blog post SUGAR BUNS!!!! ;P
I would also like to mention I am posting this on the 3 year anniversary of the day we met. It’s not our official anniversary since we weren’t dating and all, but it means just as much to me if not more.
So on to the polish that made me love my boyfriend even more than I thought was possible, China Glaze Midtown Magic…
Just glancing at the bottle, Midtown Magic looks like a dark chocolate base. However, when you hold it up angled in direct light you can see its actually a really dark, possibly blackened burgundy base. You’ll be able to see it a little in my first two pictures below. You may also notice the burgundy looking at the line of polish closest to my cuticles on some nails. The best part of this polish are the gold and bronze flecks in it, I’m not sure but it may also have red flecks.
I used my usual 2 coats for this mani and application was heavenly. I love Midtown Magic soooo much, I will never part with it even though I’ll probably never be allowed to if I wanted. It’s a really great polish especially for Fall.
Thank you boyfriend!!!
