China Glaze - Fast Track

The Hunger Games movie just came out, and it was AMAZING.  I loved every second of it, and I've read all three of the books several times over the past year.  To say I'm a fangirl is sort of an understatement.  I even managed to convince The Boyfriend to read them, and he really liked them too.  Despite his interest in the series, I'm pretty sure he's getting sick of me gushing about Katniss non-stop.

Over the winter, when I head China Glaze was releasing the Capitol Colours collection, I pretty much lost my mind.  I knew when March 1st rolled around I'd be buying polishes.  I managed to snag four of them from my local Sally's.  I picked up Luxe and Lush, Smoke and Ashes, Dress Me Up, and Fast Track.  Fast Track is my new favorite neutral, and that's what we have today.

I never expected to love a beige polish so much.  I'm very much a purple sparkly girl, but this one really surprised me.  It's SO chic and clean looking.  At one coat, it looks like pantyhose with a bright gold glass fleck (it looks very much like CG White Cap from the Spring 2011 Anchors Away collection, which I also liked, just with a nude base).  At two, it's totally opaque.  I did three coats because I have some slight damage on my tips right now, and certain areas are whiter than the others.  The formula is smooth, not runny, and it dries lightning quick.
Forgive the redness in the first photo, please.  My lighting situation is pretty rough here, and I'm going to be working on making a light box soon.

I start my new bank job tomorrow, so I thought this would be pretty and work appropriate.  AND STILL SPARKLY.  What are some of your favorite work-safe polishes?
