China Glaze On Safari Collection Fall 2012

The first Fall collection I have to show you this year is from China Glaze, On Safari. A collection of 12 cremes and glitters. I am really loving these shades!
Kalahari Kiss is a beigey pale mustard creme. Unexpectedly beautiful. Two coats.

This is Elephant Walk, a green toned graphite grey with a gorgeous shimmer. I expected to love this and I really do! This is two coats.

Desert Sun is a muted orangey butterscotch creme. I am not in love with this but it does look good on me. This is two coats.

This guy is Exotic Encounters, a dusty green teal creme. I flippen LA LA LOVE this! I didn't have a clue I'd be so head over heels with it and the picture does no justice. Perfect formula. Two coats.

Purr-fect Plum is a berry purple creme. Not super unique but pretty. This is two coats, but I think three might've looked a little more rich.

Jungle Queen is a super greyed dusty purple shimmer. I think my expectations were too high with this one, it kind of disappointed me. It looks a little dirty to me. Chanel Paradoxal is a similar idea, and in my opinion, much prettier. Two coats.

Man Hunt is a bright cobalt blue jelly creme. SO FAB. Two coats!

Call of the Wild is a chocolate sauce reddish brown. Nice and keeps with the theme well. Two coats.

And the token red, Adventure Red-y. A pretty fab blue toned red creme. Great formula, super pigmented, two coats.

Prey Tell is a deep dark winey brown super shiny creme. I don't love it, I don't hate it. Two coats.

I'm Not Lion is a freaking amazing glitter. A-MA-ZING! I was not excited about this at all from the promo shots, but this is seriously hot. Super blingy glittery champagne pale gold, with holo bits. Really sensational in the sun and even in the shade! And it's super easy to apply, very opaque, and just awesome. Dries seriously gritty and matte, so you need a thick topcoat. Two coats!

A second sexy hot glitter, I Herd That is a caramel orangey copper with gold and holo flecks. I kinda can't believe how much I like these. This is so super easy to apply, goes exactly where you want. Two coats :D

I am overall pretty impressed with this collection, it has some really great core colors that would be an asset to an polish lover's stash AND some standout unique lacquers that you definitely NEED. These should be on sale now at your local Sally Beauty Supply and various e-tailers. What are your thoughts on China Glaze's fall colors?
