Find China Glaze On Safari Fall 2012 Polishes

China Glaze On Safari Collection


China Glaze is one of the popular brand of nail polish because, not only do they keep coming out with fantastic colors, it's a great quality polish. The China Glaze On Safari Collection features 12 new awesome shades. I'm a personal fan of most of these. The glitters are beautiful, and it's not always easy to find nice glitter polish. The other colors are perfect as well and definitely suited for a Safari!

Man Hunt: A deep, bright inky-blue creme polish. Colorful and beautiful.

Purr-fect Plum: A berry-plum purple toned cream polish. Another gorgeous China Glaze color perfect for Fall (or any other time of the year).

Call of the Wild: A dark brown burgundy creme polish.

Adventure Red-y: A gorgeous blood red creme polish with a tiny hint of blue.

Elephant Walk: A graphite-grey polish with a teal tone and a hint of silver shimmer.

Exotic Encounters: A medium-dark toned teal green creme polish.

Jungle Queen: A medium-dark toned purple/grey polish with pink and purple shimmer. It leans more towards the deep purple side and contains a bit of a smokey grey. Perfect for Fall, or any time of the year.

Prey Tell: A deep, dark brown creme polish with a hint of red.

I'm Not Lion: Another beautiful glitter polish with specs of mostly light gold glitter but different colors can be seen in the glitter as you shift through different shades of light.

I Herd That: A beautiful glitter polish with specs of gold, copper, yellow, and orangey tones. This polish dries to a matte finish so, if you would like to shiny glossy finish, cover with a nice topcoat.

Kalahari Kiss: China Glaze labels this as a light sand brown color but it appears to be a lemony-yellow color. A very pretty creme polish that would have been lovely during the summer as well.

Desert Sun: A pretty unique, caramelly-butterscotch orange creme polish.

Find Essie Stylenomics Fall 2012 Polishes

This collection by Essie is one of the tamer collections in my opinion. There isn't much contrast amongst the colors as they're mostly of the red and nude tones, with the exception of "Stylenomics" which is a green. These six shades are still are very beautiful colors.

Recessionista: A brilliant magenta, purple.

Miss Fancy Pants: Beige with a hint of grey.

Skirting The Issue: A deep, burgundy red.

Don't Sweater It: A sandy mauve creme polish.

If any nail polish color collection screams fire it's this one. Each of these colors are beautiful on their own but the collection is magnificent.

      Thank you so much! I'm going to have to budget for a few of these, although I really probably shouldn't. I love so many of these I can't resist.

      Yep, the colors are difficult to resist. I find more of them that I love everytime I look at this. Even if you have several shades of one color there are always new ones to choose from. Thank you so much and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

      I hate those neon colors and one nail a different color ... That seriously is unappealing to me. Just sayin'.
