For those of you who are regular readers, it won't come as a shock when I tell you that I am head-over-heels in love with this color. I've said it many times but I'll say it again: these ugly puke greens and yellows look wonderful and elegant on my skin tone and I don't know why but I love it. Trendsetter is basically a shimmery version of American Apparel MacArthur Park, probably a couple hairs darker and greener. Therefore the name "trendsetter" isn't entirely apt. But if that's my only problem with this polish, then...I'm still ecstatic about it. The formula was typical China Glaze, and I had flawless and even coverage in two coats.
I was so happy to walk into Ulta and see that they had this collection. The other one I wanted, Midtown Magic, was the only one they didn't have. But now looking at swatches of that one I'm noticing that it's not exactly terribly unique, so I'm not too sad to have missed out on it. I don't have much time at all for my once-routine pilgrimages to Ulta, but I made sure to find time last Sunday morning. Trendsetter was a reward to myself for finishing tasks (like a toddler, I work on a reward system; fun fact: writing this blog post was my reward to myself for finishing a particularly arduous reading).
To conclude: LOVE. If you like weird ugly colors like this, get yourself a bottle of Trendsetter. It's too gross/beautiful to pass up. And I think it looks great on short nails ;)
