  4. Valerie

    I love how they made the yellow fall-ish. I haven’t jumped on the yellow nails bus yet, but now I think I will!

  5. Valerie

    By the way- I always thought I was an uptown girl, but for this I’m strictly downtown.

  6. Kathy

    Hm, not too crazy over these colors. Good! I have too many nail polishes right now. Haha.

  7. Erica

    I will definitely pick up urban-night!

  8. I want just about all of these. Such perfect Fall colours. *sigh of happiness* :D

    I’m most excited to see Skyscraper and CG in the City in person! I love fall, but we just got summer weather, so I can hold off for a bit.

    Hmm. I’m not quite sold on it yet, I see a few colors I might like, but I think I’ll have to wait for swatches to decide.

      I am waiting to make my decision also based on swatches. But still leaning to the uptown collection.

    concept made me laugh.

    Westside Warrior looks like it’ll own my life. I love “ugly-pretty” colors. Trendsetter…I wish it was a creme. I would love to find a dirty-mustard creme polish. I like yellow shimmers in the bottles but they are usually so sheer that I pass. Other than the glitters, everything else seems to not be terribly unique but I’m not sure if I’d love the glitters enough to buy them.

    I’m thinking it’s going to be an ironically “green” Autumn for me :) I’m in love with Westside Warrior. I’m also in love with Zoya’s Yara and Chanel’s Peridot.

  14. Nicole

    Mmmm yes, a grey creme! Exactly the color I have been wanting. :D

  15. I like the collection! :D

  16. lety

    I got CG in the City and City Siren :D LOVING :) Currently wearing CG in the City on my ring finger, so cute!

  17. Kari

    At over 600 polishes in my collection I should be able to just walk away, but china glaze is an old favorite so I’ll be picking this up as soon as I can get my hands on it…

    • Ally

      Has anyone seen these for sale anywhere besides cosmoprof? I heard the come out in july, but can’t find them.

      • meme

        Read where they are out in the UK for retail…but not in the US until around Mid to some say July 20th. As slow as my Sally’s is to get much in – I bet I won’t see them until Aug.

  18. Kristyn

    Nice! Loving that mauvey color on the bottom right!

  19. meme

    I am excited for the Uptown collection mostly and hoping that Sally’s sells them in the boxed collections at a discount vs. all open stock.

  20. Sarah

    Does anyone know if these will be made available individually? I’m not completely sold on the sets, but I do really like CG in the city.

  21. Deb

    Well, colour me screwed because I want half the collection. I can totally see myself getting 2 from the uptown one and maybe 4 from the downtown one. Oy >_<

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Nicki Nicki

  23. This girl cannot wait to wear these colors around NYC!!!

    i ordered them there and they are waiting on my doorstep today…yay

  27. Tess

    I thought I wanted about 4 of them, but when I saw them the other day I bought 8 and am kicking myself for not getting all of them. (Even the pinks/reds/purple are unique enough [to me] to justify. They’re the ones I skipped.) I’m wearing Westside Warrior today and it may well be the very best of a half-dozen dark olive greens that I have. It definitely matches a few brand new Fall ’11 clothing items I just got – not too yellow, not too blue, not too weak, not too dark. Perfect. I can’t wait to wear Brownstone and Trendsetter, too.
