This Season’s Trendsetter Nail Polish Color

You know about my Cult Nails giveaway, right? You have to enter! Go here to do that.

As you may have surmised from previous posts, I am in love with China Glaze’s Metro collection for this Fall. I haven’t found a stinker out of the entire collection; I love ’em all.

I know this color may be tricky and/or not a shade many would care for, however, I love these drab mustardy colors.

True to my word, I adore this one. It is ‘Trendsetter’…

If you look super hard, you can see that this is not a creme; there are some sparkles in this polish. That adds more to this unusual color.The micro-est of all glitters is a darkened yellow shade, same as the base polish itself. Even in real life, it is more murky than photography reveals. And the sparkle isn’t blatantly obvious.

Now, on the nails…

Only this photo gives you a chance to see how green AND yellow it is, all at the same time. All the other photos showed a terrible application and this polish is way too pretty to have a crappy manicure distract from that. You’ll see a tidier look later on.

I only had to use 2 coats. My foible was that I didn’t allow those coats to dry sufficiently between application. I do have on one top coat of Nailene’s ‘Miracle Maker.’ Again, it didn’t hide the bubbling. In no way is the bubbling due to the polish, it was due to the applicator; me.

It is getting harder and harder to find polishes from the Metro collection. So, I wanted to get this post in so you can see if it is one you might like. I wouldn’t risk waiting to get it.

Maybe you have it already? Tell me what you think about it.Β 

  • I haven't checked out any of the polishes from this collection πŸ™ I'm not real big on this color. Don't look too bad, just something I wouldn't wear too often.

  • I love Trendsetter too! I have it swatched with a nail design. I just haven't posted it yet. It is such a unique polish!

  • This is one of my favorites, but you know that! I think it looks great on you, too, Kim!

  • This looks great on you! Why do I keep putting this one back? Argh!

  • This looks great on you, need to check out the colors from this collection πŸ™‚

    Love Christine β™₯

  • I have this and love it!!

  • I grabbed this one from transdesign or whatever they are these days, but haven't worn it yet. I did notice my Ulta just put out two full displays of the collection, weeks after Sally's had it around here.

  • @Peach Before blogging, I don't think I would have cared for it either. I have really surprised myself. πŸ™‚

    @imfeelingnail-venturous Oh, with a nail design? You always do a great look; I can't wait to see it.

    @Nicole Thanks, doll! Isn't this collection the BEST?!!

    @purplegreenpanda If you want to get it, you might go ahead and do so. These Metro displays are not full anymore.

    @Christine Hi, baby! This would look good on you. I can see it accenting one of your fashion looks!

    @Fingers Hooray!!! πŸ˜€

    @KarenD I did get mine from Sally's a lot sooner than I started to see them show up at Ulta. The time lag was much greater than usual.

  • Trendsetter is such a great mustard yellow. I got it when it first came out even though I wasn't sure if I'd like it, but I did. And it looks wonderful on your nails! πŸ˜€
