NOTD: China Glaze Traffic Jam


This is two coats of China Glaze’s Traffic Jam from the Fall 2011 Metro Collection. Purple / Pink-Leaning Berry Jam.

My new favorite berry shade! This is one of those super rich crèmes that, in my opinion, matches the color of ripe raspberries to a T – it literally makes me want to go berry picking! The formula on this one is amazing – thick, yes; but easy to work with and completely opaque in two coats. This is a must-have summer-to-fall transition shade. Love it!


Accessories: Jagged Faux Stone Ring in Seafoam / Gold via Forever 21.

What a gorgeous color (and ring)! I must tell you, you've inspired me to let my nails grow out a bit (something my hubby is quite pleased with). Ive been keeping them trimmed down for the longest but I'm ready for a change! Right now I'm wearing All Hail the Queen and Bluey from butter LONDON, No Place Like Chrome from Essie, and Big Money from Sally Hansen's Gem Crush collection.

Love the berry color! I'm actually looking for this same color as a new lipstick! So you paint your nails each week? Wish I had that dedication. And the teal ring is such a great complement to the berry!
