China Glaze Vintage Vixen swatches

The China Glaze Fall 2010 Vintage Vixen Collection as described by China Glaze:
Sultry Fall Colors Entice The Fashionable Palette

 For Fall 2010, the China Glaze Vintage Vixen Collection captures the vivid and saturated hues of the 1940’s with this seductively complex palette. These classic shades of the season recreate the timeless tableau of movie land mystique, perfect red pouts and steamy nights where swing was the scene!
Step out with these multi-faceted jewel tones, rich reds, titillating taupes and smoldering sands. This collection deliverers a high octane 40’s era glamour with a sophisticated edge!

I have to agree on the rich tones and sexy 40's style glamour
(All swatches are 2 coats no top or base, taken in natural light)

Ingrid is a Greyed taupey (yes I get to make up words) with copper micro glitter.
If you are a lover of Greige you need this! I am not one to love neutrals or earthy shades at all but I will even admit that this really is a lovely color.

Classic Camel is well a tan/camel beige with gold micro glitter.
This is my least favorite of the collection. It just doesn't thrill me but as I said I'm not one to love these kinds of shades. If you like neautrals with a kick then you may just love this one.

Foxy is sooooo Foxeh!
This one is more my speed, a lush burgundy with mega shimmer.
This one is worthy of coating the tips of Lana Turner.

Swing Baby is a taupish metallic, micro glitter.
Shiny...oh sorry, I got distracted. This one is a little on the shear side, I think a 3rd coat my solve that.

Hey Doll is a rose toned deep mauve with gorgeous shimmer.
I was surprised at how much I like this one. Very opaque.

First Class Ticket Blurple hotness with mega shimmer!
This one is my favorite...I think....I can't decide.

Jitterbug is a nice gunmetal metallic. Nothing extrodinary with all of the Silver metallics out lately though this one is more on the gunmetal side so I do prefer it over the others. I think Jitterbug is more versatile than a plain silver metallic, a little edgier, sexier in my opinion.

Goin' My Way? is a medium brown with copper shimmer.
Very rich color and the contrast with the copper makes this more interesting if you are a fan of browns.

Riveter Rouge Sassy red with rivets of silver glitter scattered throughout.
The "real" Rosie the Riveter, Rose Will Monroe, would be the first to call this one hotness!

Midnight Mission a sweet Navy blue with tons of silver micro shimmer.
I love this shade of blue and the silver makes it look almost metallic in sunshine.

Emerald Fitzgerald is a rich forest green with micro shimmer.
A very pretty green is you are in need....and who doesn't need a sexy green?!

Bogie is another favorite for me, a deep jewel tone plum with shimmer.

My thoughts on this collection:
I am glad to see some more interesting Fall shades not just a bunch of vampy reds, though you know I love my Vampy reds! The Vintage Vixen collection has a really nice variety, a something for everyone collection. I love the deep jewel tones and interesting shimmers/glitters.
The formula's were all very nice, China Glaze's usual easy to work with formula.
Most are opaque in 1-2 coats.

So which colors are you most looking forward to?


  1. LOVE these on you! Though I think Classic Camel looks on you like it looks on me, the rest of them look perfect on you!

  2. I'm drawn to Riveter Rouge, which is impressive and unusual because I rarely ever wear red nail polishes!

  3. Hell, I want them ALL!  Simply gorgeous!

  4. your nails are getting long again!  they really show off the VV finishes v well!

  5. THese all look great! I really want Classic Camel and Swing Baby

  6. so these are in the package right?

  7. I want them all too....and I don't usually like a whole collection like that.  I mostly gravitate to just a few colors.  Very nice collection :)

  8. Foxy, First Class Ticket and Riveter Rouge all are gorgeous! I love intensive colours :)

  9. I think my favourite is Jitterbug. Anything metallic and silver just gets my attention. I also love Bogie, it looks very pretty.

  10. They are all so beautiful on you!

  11. jitterbug looks amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayzing on you

  12. That really is a pretty collection, but I *still* don't have interest in Classic Camel or Ingrid.  I'm glad to (finally) hear that I'm not the only one. 

  13. Classic Camel is my least favorite.  Emerald Fitzgerald I love.  I'm going to buy the whole collection. 

  14. They're all pretty, but I think I like Ingrid the best.  I don't have anything with copper shimmer. 

  15. Oh god these are so so pretty, i love them all excpet Ingrid and Classic Came, which are still nice but i rarely wear neutrals so they're just not for me. China Glaze needs to properly come to the UK, it's so pricey over here :(

  18. I agree, China Glaze should come to the UK and a lot of other places

  19. Ingrid is the most interesting brown I've seen.

  20. Emerald Fitzgerald is a pretty one!

  21. I just don't love those kind of shades. The rest are pretty.

  22. Jitterbug is a fun color...sparklies!
