China Glaze sent me their new Desert Escape collection. The collection consists of four creams and two metallics. The availability of this collection is a bit different than usual CG collections — The individual shades sold will only be available on LockAndMane.com. Sally Beauty Supple will only carry select nail art kits; they will not retail the individual colors. Ulta is not carrying this particular collection at all.
The formula for all of these was great. I know that sometimes China Glaze polishes have some formula issues, but that was not my experience with this collection. I had a great time swatching this set!
China Glaze Meet Me in the Mirage
Meet Me in the Mirage is a rose-copper metal polish. The formula on this one was simply dreamy. I loved applying it! I also love the color. This one is a win all around.
China Glaze The Heat is On
The Heat is On is a classic red. This one has almost a jelly texture to it, which I really like. It looks creamy and squishy all at the same time.
China Glaze What’s She Dune?
What’s She Dune? is a very pretty nude. This is the perfect color to convey desert sand! I needed three coats for this one as it was a little patchy on the first coat, but after three it looked great.
China Glaze Don’t Mesa With My Heart
Don’t Mesa with my Heart is another one with a slightly jelly finish. I did three coats of this bubblegum pink polish for full coverage.
China Glaze Rain Dance the Night Away
Rain Dance the Night Away is a beautiful turquoise color. This really is the same color as turquoise jewelry you might have! This is two easy coats.
China Glaze Don’t Desert Me
Don’t Desert Me is a metallic dark pinkish-purple. I really am loving this color! This is two coats.
I have to say that I’m a fan of this collection! If you’re to order it from LockAndMane.com, I think you’ll like it, too!
