First off I just want to say thanks for reading and thanks for all the comments. I appreciate all the regular commenters and all of you who may just check my blog out sporadically but occasionally take the time to comment. I really enjoy reading and responding to you all so I just wanted to say thank you. 🙂
Today I want to show you the other two polishes I got from the China Glaze On Safari collection- Desert Sun and I Herd That. It’s out in July, so if you like what you see you can pick them up on Sunday at the latest 🙂 Let’s have a look-
Desert Sun is a slightly burnt apricot, caramel color. It’s not quite as orange as it looks on my monitor, but it definitely has a bit of a light burnt orange-type color. It’s a very interesting color, not like anything I have and I actually really like it. I got a TON of compliments on this color when I wore it alone to work. I wasn’t sure everyone was going to “get” it, but they LOVED it!
Non-problematic. Opaque in 2 coats, I like 3.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Yes, Please!! I think this is an awesome color and it will also be a good base for nail art. I just like the soft, slightly neutral yet interesting color and the formula couldn’t be much better so… it’s a winner!! 😀
I wore my Desert Sun nails for a day and then added a glitter chevron tip for the second day of wear. What better glitter to pair with this than I Herd That!! These two colors work PERFECTLY together. Let’s see-
I Herd That (chevron tips)
I Herd That is a fine glitter that is a mix of gold, copper, orange and some holo pieces. The glitter is super-fine and goes on smooth. It’s the teeniest bit gritty before topcoat but one layer of topcoat smooths it out almost perfectly. If you’re a glitter-hater because of the grittiness (Cynthia) this one probably wont bug you much at all. You can see how it’s fine enough that I could make a near-perfect chevron.
Like I said above, the formula is great because it’s so nice and fine. Als0, the different colors keep it good and glittery looking, not boring at all. This glitter would be easy to wear opaque because as you can see my tips are opaque and they only took 2 coats to get them this way. Also worth noting is the fact that it wasn’t that hard to remove, didn’t even take foiling! I think the fine particles make all the difference. 🙂
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Yes, please!! This is a perfect complement to Desert Sun, but even more than that- I’m excited to wear it on it’s own! I love the combination of glitters and the fine particles are really catching my eye for some reason. And I’m not gonna lie- the ease of removal (relative to other glitters) really makes me happy, too. I think this is awesome, a little different than anything else I have and I just love the neutrality of this glitter. I seriously love, love, love it!! 😀
How do you like these polishes? Are you planning on getting any of these if you haven’t already? Let me know what you think! 🙂 Als0- get ready for some more stamping!! I’m having so much fun trying out my new Bundle Monster plates!!! As always, thanks for reading and till next time, Happy Polishing!! 😀
