China Glaze 2012 Fall Collection "On Safari"

Hi all! I am so excited for today's post! China Glaze has released their new Fall collection called "On Safari". It is a collection of 12 colors that are sold in groups of six or individually. I'm not too excited about the way they grouped the colors together so I opted to buy mine individually so I could choose the ones I liked best. I picked up the five colors from the collection that I am obsessed with: Desert Sun, which is an awesome caramel/toffee-colored brown; Kalahari Kiss, a yellow-based tan. And the two glitters in the collection: I Herd That and I'm Not Lion (I also picked up Elephant Walk which is a graphite gray- I will be doing something fun with that color in another post!).

     I Herd That reminds me a lot of Electrify from the Hunger Games collection but I like it better (can't quite put my finger on what that is yet). I'm Not Lion is an awesome light gold. Formula-wise the glitters and Kalahari Kiss are my favorites. KK goes on completely opaque with only coat which I love. And the glitters are highly pigmented so I didn't have any bald spots while applying. Desert Sun is a much thinner formula that goes on pretty sheer; I did two coats in the pic below. For the glitter pics I layered I Herd That over Desert Sun and I'm Not Lion over Kalahari Kiss. The glitters are thirsty so I definitely recommend a thick top coat.
