Kalahari Kiss and I'm Not Lion - China Glaze On Safari NOTD

I've got two reasons why China Glaze is one of my all time favorite brands... Kalahari Kiss and I'm Not Lion! I never would have guessed that a mustard leaning putty would turn out to to be such an amazing neutral shade for me, and a yellow my skin can pull off! And a champagne holographic glitter?! CG is always on point with great glitters

Initially I wasn't planning on purchasing either of these shades but it turns out they are perfect for me and go great together! I wasn't impressed with swatches I'd seen so far but I took a chance after looking back at my Trendsetter photos, remember that amazing mustard glass fleck from last fall's Metro collection? Yeah, also an unconventional or "ugly" color that turned out to work great with my coloring.





I gave myself another trigger mani and used two costs of each color. I'm Not Lion gave good coverage too and is wearing like iron, another great quality of China Glaze glitters. I used a coat of Gelous before Seche Vite since it was drying gritty and it helped a lot in giving me a smooth finish.

Kalahari Kiss is the perfect base color for safari themed nail art and I'm inspired by Nail Nerd to try my hand at a giraffe pattern using Desert Sun! I haven't purchased that shade yet because it was another I wasn't sure would work with my skin tone, but I'm sure going back for it now!








Oh China Glaze, let me count the ways... I can't wait for the rest of the shades I ordered from this collection get here! My FedEx tracker says Friday, woo hoo!
