This is China Glaze Fast Track from the Hunger Games collection. I freaking love this!!! I initially only bought Stone Cold and Smoke & Ashes and was hesitant about this one. Based on some swatches I’ve seen online, I was worried the base would be to yellow for my skin tone. But there is the teeniest bit of pink in it that makes it perfect. It’s like the tan version of Essie Lady Like with a million tiny gold flakes in it. So glad I finally bought this!
This is two coats with no topcoat. Application is great, but as you can see, clean up is kind of a pain – the glitter gets everywhere and is impossible to get off your skin. I took a shower after taking this off and there are still a few pieces of gold glitter stuck in my cuticles.
I’m still completely surprised by how much I love this polish. It might just make it into the Top 10, but I want to see how I like it as a full mani first.
So far I have Fast Track, Stone Cold, and Smoke & Ashes from the Hunger Games collection, but I’m seriously considering buying a few more. Which are your favorites?
Also, I was originally going to show you Stone Cold today, but it chipped after less than an hour in the middle of my nail. Not even anywhere near the free edge, or any edge for that matter. I tried a base coat, but the polish wiped off completely and wouldn’t stick to my nails. It’s a beautiful polish, but I was so annoyed I just gave up. Any suggestions for making matte polishes last a little longer?
