Color: Foie Gras (China Glaze)
Retail Price: $6.50 (USD)
This shade is another one from China Glaze’s spring 2012 Capitol Colours collection, which is inspired by The Hunger Games. Honestly, when I first got it, I was so turned off! It looks murky and brown in the bottle, like water in the puddle everyone jumps in on a rainy day! Plus, considering I’ve tasted foie gras before (at a fancy restaurant in Budapest, Hungary, no less, so I couldn’t even spit it out)…YUCK!! But trust me when I say you shouldn’t dismiss this color so easily.
There is so much depth to this creme! For starters, it may look somewhat brown, but it has the tiniest hints of purple, and maybe some warm red tones to it as well. On my nails, it looked more purple than brown (I realize my photo makes this color look brown since the yellow from the sun is sort of “coloring” it). I immediately thought the color most accurately resembles that of a bruise. Again, you might think that’s a gross description, but I find colors that are inspired by the human body (intentionally or not) turn out being those dark horses in your nail polish stash. I would almost qualify this as an interesting twist on the neutral trend.
The formula for this shade was perfect—not too thin, and not too thick. Application was smooth and easy, and creating a clean manicure was practically effortless. Just the way I like it! In the photo above, I am wearing two coats of nail polish.
You absolutely must try Foie Gras, though! (Er, the nail polish shade. Not the food, unless you actually want to. Haha!) It is such a standard and chic color. It just might be my favorite from this entire collection (and considering my initial reaction, what a wonderful surprise)!
