Today I have another beauty to share with you from my Online Shopping Haul.
Chicago Champagne Toast is a bronzy-pink that dries to a frosty finish.
I used Maybelline Jade Salon Care Ridgefilling Basecoat and two coats of Chicaco Champagne Toast for this manicure. The formula was good maybe a bit thin and runny but manageable. At least there was not much cleanup to do on my left hand. The right one is an other story... :-D
Due to the frosty finish there where some visible brushstrokes. That is why I also applied a generouse layer of Seche Vite to smooth it out a bit.

|From this angle the brushtrokes are better visible. But I've seen worse! :-)|

OPI describes CCT as a "fine pink champagne with an underestimated shine". I don't quite agree with this description. I think that it is more of a frosty pink with a touch of bronze. In very bright light it might appear almost champagne-like.
But no matter what the colour is called. I really like it and it is a colour that fits with nearly anything. You can wear it to work with muted colours or to a party with bright colours. It also fits with a festive outfit and even spikes up your pyjamas (and I know what I'm talking about, because I'm wearing mine right now! :-D).
Have a great day everyone!
What do you think of CCT?
