China Glaze - The Great Outdoors - Fall 2015

*Press Sample*

Hey y'all!  Today I have the fall collection from China Glaze to show ya.  This is another post that I THOUGHT I had already done, so again I win the fail blogger award.  So, without blabbering on, lets get to it.

This collection contains 12 shades with various different finishes.  There are creams, duochromes, shimmers, and a glitter.  As usual, I used Seche Vite as my top coat for all of these.

Cabin Fever - 3 coats - This is described as a pink to copper duochrome.  It's like a rosey/mustard.

Check Out The Silver Fox - 2 coats - This is described as a metallic gunmetal gray.  The finish is a chrome micro-shimmer.  The flare from the light sorta makes this difficult to photograph.  The name makes me think of Gibbs from NCIS.

Free Bear Hugs - 2 coats - This is described as a deep black red cream.  It's like a wine blood.  Super vampy & one of my favorite types of shades for fall.

Gone Glamping - 3 coats - This is described as a green to gold duochrome.  Pretty accurate, though I did notice a slight blue/teal shift also that the camera didn't pick up.

Let's Dew It - 1 coat - Over Change Your Altitude - This is described as a multi-dimensional blue gray glitter.  It almost looks like it has purple, blue, and silver in it.  It's pretty packed too.

My Lodge or Yours - 2 coats - This is described as a natural mauve cream, which is basically what I noted when I swatched this. :D

Pondering - 3 coats - This is described as a deep amethyst duochrome.  I noted it as a blue/purple/green multichrome.  Definitely one of my fav's.

Sleeping Under The Stars - 2 coats - This is described as a dark blue with stardust shimmer.  I see this more as a blurple (you know, blue and purple) with pink micro-shimmer.  It's a little difficult to photograph, and capture the shimmer....but you can see it in the bottle.

S'More Fun - 2 coats - This is described as an adventurous lemon lime cream.  I can agree with that....though I'm not sure how I feel not only about the shade itself(yanno considering it's not a fall type of color), but the name as well.  I think more cream/brown/neutrals when I think of S'mores.

Take A Hike - 2 coats - This is described as a rich mossy green cream.  I would almost describe this as a highly green based teal with a slight bit of gray in it.

Wood You Wanna? - 2 coats - This is described as a rich brown burgundy metallic.  It's like a chocolate-y bronze chrome micro-shimmer with a slight purple-ish tinge to it. 


The creams were easy to apply in just 2 coats, as were most of the rest.  With the duochromes, I'd suggest layering them over a darker(similar) shade or maybe even a black to cut down on the coats needed for opacity.

I would have to say that my fav's are DEFINITELY Free Bear Hugs, Pondering, Cabin Fever, Sleeping Under The stars, and Take A Hike.   Which ones do you like?


In addition to open stock colours, China Glaze®The Great Outdoors also includes two kits, theWood You Wanna? 6-piece set and Happy Campers 6-piece Micro Mini Kit.

   

China Glaze® is also offering a nail design kit, On the Hunt Camo Mani Design Kit, which includes three shades from the collection and a black Stripe Rite liner to create a camouflage nail design to make sure your nails do anything but blend in to the background.

China Glaze® The Great Outdoors will be available in August 2015 at Ulta and Sally Beauty Supply, as well as fine salons.  MSRP $7.50 for individual shades.
