Finally, I have part 2 of China Glaze's "On Safari" collection to share with you. (See part 1 here) I think my delay is trying these was partly because I just wasn't ready for "vampiness" yet. One thing that helped put me in a vampy mood was the recent "nubbin-izing" of my nails. They were getting very long, but I was starting to have major peeling issues, so I decided to quit while I was ahead and just cut them down ( ♪...but I won't fall! I am titanium!♪ Okay, not quite the lyrics, but made me think of that song ;). What does that have to do with this post? I LOVE dark colors on short nails, and this half of the On Safari collection is full of them!
Purr-fect Plum- a plummy creme polish. I was surprised by how much I loved this one. It is so pretty and Fall appropriate:
Call Of The Wild- dark vampy brown creme. Delicious:
Prey Tell- Really similar to "Call Of The Wild", except it's base undertone is more of a wine instead of a brown:
Here are some side by side shots of "Call Of The Wild" next to "Prey Tell":
Adventure Red-y- I have a real aversion to red polish for some reason (which is why I post them very rarely). I have to be in a very specific mood to wear red. This one applies so nicely and is the perfect "temperature" of red for my skin tone. I love it!
Man Hunt- gorgeous blue! I don't really have a ton of blue polish and I was surprised by how happy this one made me- so happy, I had to post 3 pictures instead of just 2:
Lastly, here's Jungle Queen- the prettiest dark grey/purple with an killer 'secret' shimmer (also, rumored to be pretty dang close to Chanel "Paradoxal"):
I did just 2 layers for each of these polishes. The formulas on all of them were PERFECT. I am glad that I decided to try this half, even though these colors usually aren't my 'thing'. Which one(s) do you like the best?
