REVIEW: China Glaze On Safari Swatches

12:00 AM

Although the thermometer is reading 100 degrees, the fashion and beauty industries are being bombarded with Fall and Fall colors.  And this can be seen with one of the most recent collections from China Glaze.  The China Glaze On Safari Collection was released in May and includes 12 cremes and glitters.  I was given the opportunity to review 3 of the collection: Exotic Encounter, I'm Not Lion, and Adventure Red-y.  These are 3 great colors to get anyone through the fall and winter months.
The first shade I tried was Exotic Encounters, which is described as lush green crème with blue undertones. I would add that it is a dusty teal with blue undertones.  The application was smooth and I achieved bottle color with two coats.  One thing, I must warn you of is that Exotic Encounters stains so be sure to use a base coat (probably 2-3 coats).

The next shade I reached for was Adventure Red-y.  This is described as a vivid red.  In my entire collection I have less than a half dozen creme red polishes.  I wouldn't call this a Christmas red but more so a deep red with a brown undertone.  The application was a bit watery and this one also stained like crazy. My first wearing, I had it on for less than 10 minutes and it stained.  Adventure Red-y is a great fall color.

Lastly, I received I'm Not Lion, one of the two glitters in the collection.  It is described as a glistening gold and multi-color glitter.  This is not an "in your face" glitter, but a more subtle glitter.  I'm not known for wearing a full glitter manicure, but with this shade I could.  The application was easy and took 3 coats for full opacity.  Removal was easy, unlike most glitters.

There are a few others from this collection that I need to add to my stash.  So if you are stating to prep your collection for the cooler months, give the China Glaze On Safari collection a look.
