Amor de Lacquer: China Glaze Ingrid

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve featured a just ONE nail polish in the Amor de Lacquer series. But Ingrid is one of those colors that I feel needs a post on her own. Truth is, I knew I wasn’t going to be the biggest fan of this polish but I purchased it. Because for whatever reasons, I kinda dig weird colors on my nails. And if this ain’t weird, I don’t know what is.

Ingrid comes from China Glaze’s Vintage Vixen Fall 2010 collection. It was the one color that stood out to me. It’s like an ashy brown with gold flecks. At least that’s what I see. China Glaze’s description says that Ingrid is a light brown with copper, pink and green micro glitter.

It is such an interesting color and even if I don’t wear it often, I’m glad to add it to my collection. I’ve featured brown polishes before. Remember Nubar’s Chocolate Truffle collection? And then there was OPI’s higly coveted You Don’t Know Jacques. Which, I STILL don’t like. But there’s something to say about Ingrid.

I think it works with my skintone. And it applied flawlessly! More shots of Ingrid around town…

How is this for a design fail?

Uhh, I’ll stick to perfecting konad and simple strips and dots. I purchased this gal from for $2.99. So what do you think? Would you rock Ingrid? Have you snagged any of the other polishes from the Vintage Vixen collection?

Oh! And I picked up Sephora by O.P.I’s Studs & Stilettos, another brown polish. I guess I’m goin’ through a phase, y’all.

Your fellow nail polish junkie,

    I bought this color and haven't tried it out yet, but I love it.
    And I LOOOOVE that ring you've got on! It looks great with the polish. Where did you get it?

    Ingrid looks so pretty on your nails & I love the design!

    From the VV Collection, I have: Ingrid, Classic Camel, Midnight Mission, Swing Baby & Jitterbug.

    Ingrid absolutely compliments your skin tone and looks great.Your lucky you have such long nail beds with perfectly shaped nails. I bought it too and was scared it was gonna look funky, but I think the gold shimmer saves it from being fugly. I also bought Classic Camel that almost made me gag when I put it on my nails–not pretty AT ALL! :(

    Since military fashion is on trend this fall do they have anything in a fatigue green? I love the brown it would work just as well I think

    contests—> OMG, I so totally don't remember, chica. Sorryy!!

    Melany—> I've been eyeing Jitterbug somethin' serious. I think I'm going to take the plunge.

    MMM—> Thanks mama! I SO don't like Classic Camel either. Very unflattering on me.

    Soho—> Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has a GREAT green called Swamp Thing. It's gorgeous!

    I dig it! I'm still not over taupey/brown polishes, and it's cool that this one has a shimmer…

  • I am in love with Ingrid…I want it!!!!! I love a pretty brown. My fav OPI brown is over the taupe. This may have a new place in my heart.
