Sneak Peek: China Glaze Midnight Mission

China Glaze Midnight Mission

China Glaze Vintage Vixen

First, before we get to the press release details, a sneak peek at Midnight Mission from the Vintage Vixen Collection by China Glaze. Described as a navy blue frost with silver micro glitter. It's a little bit metallic with a somewhat foil-y sheen to it from the micro glitter. Great Color, Great Application!

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 delivers a high octane 40’s era glamour with a sophisticated edge! The 12 colors in this collection include:

China Glaze Vintage Vixen

In the The Hotsy Totsy Set: Jitterbug – Grey chrome with silver micro glitter, Bogie – Plum frost with shimmer, Hey Doll – Rose frost with shimmer, Foxy – Burgundy frost with shimmer, Ingrid – “Greige” crème with copper micro glitter and Swing Baby – Taupe frost with silver micro glitter.

China Glaze Vintage Vixen

THAT is EXACTLY the color I spent my weekend googling nail polish swatches for. Exactly. Precisely. Now I just have to wait until July :(. (And the purple frost with glitter sounds right up my alley, too. But the Navy with glitter is what I've been searching for.)

Super pretty. Can't wait for more swatches, thanks for this one.

I so wish I could get my hands on these right now!

These are NOT frosts, and it's really kind of dumb of CG to market them that way. Frosts have such a bad reputation for being streaky and tacky looking. When I heard the descriptions, I figured I would only buy the two creme/micro glitters. Now that I've seen swatches, I love every single one of them. I love the summer weather, and all, but fall always brings the best polish collections.

Hi Steph - Thank you for the swatch! This is a blue I think I could wear. I'm so excited about this collection because I love the '40's era and CG looks like they've got a knockout of a collection in VV!

Thanks for the sneak peek! Very nice! BUT they seem more SHIMMERS than FROSTS? I love Midnight Mission and possibly First Class Ticket! :)

I love this colour, and many of the others from the Vintage Vixen collection. Thanks for the great swatches!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
