Hi, today I swatched China Glaze Fast Track for y'all! The inspiration for this one was District 6, the industry of transportation. There wasn't much mentioned about this district in the books, but the only thing I recall is that the characters from District 6 were known to be "morphling" addicts. Morphling is Panem's version of morphine. Don't get me wrong, I really think this color is very nice, but they could've done something so much more interesting with the morphling addiction concept!

|China Glaze Fast Track shimmer|
This is a light brown/beige color that could probably pass as a nude for someone who is a bit darker than me. It's got itty bitty gold shimmer which is noticeable, even as I took these pictures during an overcast day. This is a very pretty neutral color, that I can see as totally work appropriate. It is sheer, but 2 coats sufficed as enough coverage for my little nails.

When I saw this, I noticed it looks very similar to China Glaze's Knotty! I thought the only difference would be that Fast Track has gold shimmer, while Knotty has silver. However, just from looking at the bottles one can see that the shade is very different also. Knotty is not as brown and makes a better nude for my skin tone.
|China Glaze Fast Track+Electrify|
Naturally I wanted to see what Electrify looked over Fast Track. My conclusion is that Fast Track makes a great neutral base color if one wants Electrify to be the main focus. Personally, I would prefer to do this instead of putting Electrify on my bare nails, because I just don't want my nail line to be visible under it at all. Even though Electrify is such a dense glitter, one would still need to do 2 or more layers for full coverage, and I just don't have the patience to deal with removing more than 1 layer of pure glitter polish!

And finally, here is what Fast Track looks like with Luxe & Lush over it. Not too shabby, still magical. The flakes look like clear glass! Despite how lumpy Luxe & Lush is, I still find it so much fun for layering. À tout à l'heure!
