China Glaze’s Ingrid

When this collection first came out, I was fairly sure I wouldn't like Ingrid. I didn't get it, didn't even think about it, wasn't interested. I'd just like to say for the record...I was wrong. Ingrid isn't a microglitter, in the way that many people think about microglitters. It almost looks like a straight creme, but in certain lights you get the faintest flash of color. It's very subtle, and I like it a lot. The base color is almost milk-chocolate brown, and it applies very smoothly. The warm copper and gold lights are faint - they're more of a suggestion. I was able to wear this color for three days with no tip wear, and no base- or top-coat. (I was expecting a nail polish order to arrive, and so knew that I would be removing this manicure fairly soon. I'd imagine that with either a proper base or top coat, or even with both, this color would last a lot longer with no wear.)
