Guess who got a few of the China Glaze On Safari polishes early?? ME! 🙂 I was so happy when my Sally’s lady told me she’d sell them to me when they came in (instead of when they go on sale- July)! I went in a little while ago and they were there so I had my choice of the new polishes. I thought I was going to get Elephant Walk (grey), Exotic Encounters (teal), Desert Sun (kinda burnt apricot) and I Herd That (orange, champagne, scattered holo glitter) but when I saw them I decided to go with Desert Sun and I Herd That, and Jungle Queen. I passed on the teal because I’m pretty sure I have a similar color and for some reason I wasn’t wowed by the grey… that’s not to say I wont pick them up in another week. But I didn’t get them early. Today I want to show you Jungle Queen.
Jungle Queen is a dark, steely purple with a bright flash of lavender in the bottle and a slight flash of lavender on the nail. I was a little disappointed that it didn’t translate well, but in the end I still really love this polish. I like that it’s purple but also kinda grey/neutral. It’s gonna be a great polish for fall, and since I don’t care about seasonality, it’s a great polish for me right now 😉
Non-problematic, ChG’s usual trouble-free formula.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Yes, Please!! I’m glad I grabbed this, even though I’m still thinking about the grey in particular. I’ll probably have to go back for that. I think this purple is pretty, wearable and just a little edgy. Stay tuned tomorrow for some paisley stamping I did on these nails for the 2nd day of wear.

Are you looking forward to grabbing any of the polishes from this collection? Don’t you think it’s weird they’re releasing these fall colors in July? I mean, I know the stores start selling bathing suits pretty much as soon as Santa’s out of the chimney, but dang… it’s barely summer! Don’t remind me of the dreaded season… fall…. 😦 As always- thanks for reading and till next time, Happy Polishing!! 😀
