I am such a fan of the Fall! I love everything from the cool, crisp air, wearing jeans and a comfortable sweatshirt, UGGS and all the dark warm colors...especially the ones I can use on my nails! Although I have mentioned that I am certainly not one to follow the rules of colors for the seasons, I will admit that this summer I have avoided darker shades on my nails and waiting for Autum to roll around. The China Glaze On Safari Fall 2012 Collection got me so excited because it consists of perfect colors to wear in the Fall! I am so excited to blog for Autumn and Winter because I just love the makeup and fashion trends so much more! I had to get my hands on this collection to share with you all and I hope you enjoy!!
I was (and still am) a bit mixed about this color. I was intrigued at first because it was a buttery shade and I have been looking for the perfect yellow for awhile now. Although described in some cases as a light sand brown, I have to say, that once applied, this color looked a bit like a mustard yellow and for someone who loathes mustard, I wasn't jumping for joy. No one ever comments on my nail color, but this time they did saying that the color was very "interesting". Not sure if they were referring to it as a good thing or bad thing, but I suppose interesting sums it up. Maybe I can get away with it more in the Fall, but I am not 100% sure I love this color.
I think this color is very pretty. This cool gray shade, with subtle shimmer is a great color to wear year round. I never really wore light gray colors before and have not tried this one yet, but after swatching it, I concluded that it is a very unique color and I look forward to trying it out.
This is probably my favorite shade of the collection! When Fall/Winter comes around I am obsessed with wearing dark, vampy shades on my nails! This very deep red shade is right up my alley! I have not tried this one yet, but I fell in love with it after I swatched it. I am saving this one for the Fall and will probably make it my "go to" color for the season.
Now this is a shade I do not have in my collection. This bright cobalt blue is very bold and certainly unique. Probably not something I would wear often, but to spice it up a bit, I suppose I would give it a shot. I honestly don't have much to say about this one, except that its very different from what I am used to.
This one speaks FALL!! It's burnt orange color reminds me of Thanksgiving and it honestly makes me smile. Everytime I think about that time of year, I get all giddy and this color brings that time of the year to life! It is perfect to wear in October or November and I will more than likely wear it Thanksgiving Day!
I have already tried this color because I felt I can get away with it for the summer. Its a very pretty creamy green shade with blue undertones. I have mentioned that I am into teal shades this season, so I am very excited about this one because it is extremely versatile.
I never feel like I can't get away with purple shades on my nails, but I think I can confidently give this one a shot and not feel self conscious about it. This is a very dusty viotet shade with alot of shimmer. I am very particiular about shimmery nail polish, as I like cream bases better, but this one is very pretty and I look forward to trying this one.
I am a RED POLISH FREAK!!! I love this color! This is a very classic and creamy vivid red shade that is PERFECT for the holiday season! If you think I love Fall, wait until you see my enthusiasm around the holidays! Even though this is a Fall collection, this color is perfect to wear during Christmas time and I cannot wait!!!
I mentioned I can't get away with purple colors, but plum colors are ones that I enjoy! This color is a dark creamy plum shade and I may even classify it as burgundy. This is a color that I would have no trouble wearing all year round! I haven't tried it yet, but I plan on doing so soon!
I have tried so many brown nail polishes and I cannot seem to find one that I like. This one is amazing! I kept trying ones with shimmer and I think that was my problem. This is a dark brownish red shade that reminds me of chocolate covered cherries...::le sigh:: a favorite of mine! This is another color that I am saving for October/November and I am so excited because it emulates the season perfectly.
I don't have alot of glitter nail polishes so I was happy to see a few glitter selections in this collection. This is a multi-colored glitter thats a tad halographic. While I wouldn't wear this one on every nail, I would definately use it as a top coat for maybe my ring finger over a red shade for...once again...THE HOLIDAYS!!! If you see the swatch below, I topped this glitter polish with Adventure Red-y and it looks gorgeous! Perfect for Christmas time!!!
At first I thought that this glitter was similar to Electrify of the Hunger Games Collection, but its clearly very different! This is a copper/orange glitter and its very different. Again, not a shade I would wear on every nail, but putting it over another color is just stunning! Below I put it over Kalahari Kiss in the first picture and Pray Tell in the second one. I honestly didn't like the polish polish I used as a base, but with the right color, I think it would look stunning!
Needless to say, I love this collection! It is so pretty and incoporates very different colors for the fall; as its nice to wear brighter shades during the season that aren't too overpowering. I cannot wait for Autumn so I can really rock these colors! These photos make the colors look a bit off, so for more accuracy, please visit the China Glaze website for more information.
