China Glaze Metro Week - Downtown - Midtown Magic

Next up from the Downtown set from China Glaze Metro Collection for autumn 2011 is Midtown Magic

Midtown Magic is definitely one of the most gorgeous unique shades from China Glaze Metro. It's base colour is a vibrant dark burgundy, verging on brown, and its absolutely packed with golden shimmer, at some angles the shimmer takes on a greener tone, but this is quite subtle. I absolutely adore this shade, the shimmer gives it such an incredible depth and almost blackened gold appearance. One of the best things about Midtown Magic, is the fact that the shimmer really resembles glitter, without the headache of having to remove a glitter! Definitely a standout shade from the Metro Collection!

Although by no means a dupe, the only colour that comes to mind when I look at Midtown Magic is Tease-y Does It from OPI's Burlesque collection last year:

 Midtown Magic has a lot more shimmer, but they do have similar base shade and effect!
