The first collection of the fall is here and it's China Glaze On Safari!
Adventure Red-y is a brick red creme with a beautiful sheen to it. It's not too bright and not too dark, but still has a rich quality to it.
Call of the Wild is a chocolate brown creme polish that reminds me of a melted Hershey bar!
Desert Sun is a muted orange creme polish that looked a lot more brown in the bottle. Very apricot.
Elephant Walk is a steel gray nail polish with subtle silver shimmer. It was apparent indoors, so it will be a stunner outside. It definitely looks like an elephant's ear!
Exotic Encounters is a darkened teal creme that is different from the other teals that I own.
I Herd That is a glittery nail polish filled with red, gold, and orange glitter. The above is with two coats and is pretty opaque.
I Herd That SPARKLE SHOT!
I'm Not Lion is a glitter polish with gold, silver, and holo in it. This has a fantastic sparkle to it...
See? I'm Not Lion! You see what I did there? Hehe.
Next up is Jungle Queen, a dusty purple with violet shimmer. From what I have heard, this is a Chanel Paradoxal dupe. And I'm not complaining that there is a cheaper, equal-quality, and readily-available dupe.
Kalahari Kiss is a yellow-beige creme polish I did not think would look good on me. But it didn't yellow out my skin as much as I thought.
Man Hunt is a GORGEOUS royal blue creme polish. It was rich and lustrous... and wasn't horrendous to remove either!
Prey Tell is a vampy blackened red jelly. The application on this was kind of a pain because it stained any skin it so much as touched. That's why some of my swatches have a little staining on the cuticles... not sure this one is worth the hassle unfortunately. Though, I do love the color itself.
And last, but not least, is Purr-fect Plum, a dark raspberry creme. This seems like a darker version of last Fall's Traffic Jam. I still like it a lot though.
There were some formula issues with this collection. It was very watery, which made it necessary to work quickly. The only one that was a horror story was Prey Tell because it stained and pooled.
Overall, I can definitely see myself wearing at least half of this collection regularly. Jungle Queen was GORGEOUS, as was Man Hunt. I think those are my two faves.
The China Glaze On Safari collection is available at fine salons and beauty supply stores nationwide now!
