Good Morning Polished People,
When I Googled Exotic Encounters for swatches, I was really quite scared of what might pop up. As it turns out, I didn’t stumble across anything too bad, but if you’re looking for an exotic encounter of the non-nail variety- please go to a different blog. I don’t cater to any creeptacular hand fetishes here, my friend. Speaking of weird fetishes (this is not sounding too good!) I wonder if there are any weirdos that look at all of us nail people’s blogs and are like *breathing heavily* “Ohhh Nails…..” Let’s hope not. If you’re one of those potential creepers just know that you’re grossing me out. Every once in a while I wonder about that cuz occasionally I’ll get some guys “liking” my pics on Instagram and I’m like, “Why is a dude liking my nails?!” I’m assuming they wanna show their girlfriends. Let’s go with that. Okay… now that I’m sufficiently creeped out- let’s see today’s nails.
China Glaze Exotic Encounters
Exotic Encounters is a dusty green creme polish that leans quite blue. I wouldn’t exactly call this teal but it’s not a straight green either.
Non-problematic, opaque in one careful coat. I always use three. I just like my nails that way.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Yes, please!!! At first I wasn’t going to get this polish. I was only going to get the Elephant Walk, I Herd That and maybe Desert Sun. Well- now I have those three, plus this one plus I’m Not Lion, plus Jungle Queen. All these polishes are so dang good!! If you get the chance, you should pick them up as well.
A Quick Note About Fairy Dust:
This is the coolest polish ever!! I usually don’t care for glitter topcoats but I absolutely LOVE this. You can see how it made Exotic Encounters almost look like one of those beautiful A England polishes, and it just adds dimension to any polish without covering it up. It’s part of China Glaze’s regular stock, so I definitely recommend that next time you’re out and about you pick this one up. It’s finish is super smooth and removal is a breeze, there’s no reason to not own this pretty silver scattered holo polish.
Do you love this or do you love this?!?! And don’t you think it looks like one of those A Englands with the fairy dust over the top? I loved it so much!!! If you know which A England I’m talking about, let me know cuz for the life of me I can’t remember the name of it. All I can think of is Tristam but I don’t think that’s it. As always- thank you very much for reading and commenting, I really appreciate ever single view and comment. Till next time- Happy Polishing!!!
