China Glaze sent me their Great Outdoors collection to show you! This collection has a variety of shimmers, cremes, and glitter. It is very cohesive! I used two coats of each polish unless otherwise stated. I had no formula issues with any of these polishes.
Let’s start with some nail art!! I did this waterfall mani with a base of China Glaze Change Your Altitude. Then, I used Free Bear Hugs, Sleeping Under the Stars, and Take a Hike.
Now let’s look at the swatches! May as well start with China Glaze Change Your Altitude. This is a creamy gray.
China Glaze My Lodge or Yours? is a creme mauve.
China Glaze Let’s Dew It. One coat over My Lodge or Yours? This is a purple glitter topper but I bet if you did a few coats, you’d get full opacity for a killer glitter bomb mani.
China Glaze Free Bear Hugs is a red-black creme. If you look at the waterfall mani I did above, you can see it really has a ton of red in it. When you do more than one coat, it becomes blacker.
China Glaze Take a Hike is a deep green creme.
China Glaze Pondering is a purple and green duochrome.
China Glaze Sleeping Under the Stars is a dark blue with purple shimmers. I took these photos with flash so the shimmers would come alive!
China Glaze Wood You Wanna? is a metallic brown and it’s actually one of my favorites in the collection!
China Glaze S’More Fun is a minty neon green creme.
China Glaze Gone Glamping is a green duochrome. I needed three coats for full opacity on this one.
China Glaze Cabin Fever is a raspberry duochrome and it’s another one of the huge standout winners in the collection. It looks like a sunset!!
China Glaze Check Out the Silver Fox is a silver metallic. This is another one of my favorites of the twelve!
Here are a couple more nail art looks I did using some of the gorgeous polishes from this collection.
This first one is a gradient using Wood You Wanna? and Check Out the Silver Fox.
This dotticure was done using S’More Fun and Take a Hike.
What do you think of this collection? Are there any you’ll be scouting for?
