China Glaze Exotic Encounters - swatches and review

This polish is even more beautiful on the nails than I could ever imagine! :D
I love it! To me, this is the PERFECT teal!!

In daylight

In artificial light

It dries a tiny bit darker on the nails than the colour in the bottle

Perfect teal! ;)

My cat Smilla decided she wanted to join me as I shot this picture :)


Type of polish: Cream.

Colour: A medium teal (a bluish dusky green).

Collection: China Glaze On Safari Collection Fall 2012.

Opacity: Excellent! This is ONE coat! :D

Drying time: A bit slower than normal, probably because the formula is on the thicker side.

Formula: Very good! It's applies like dream :D - even though it's a bit thicker. It stays exactly where you want it to! :D

Brush: A bit on the thin side but the formula was so good that I didn't mind.

Shine: Shiny on its own, but I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate. Maybe a tiny bit more green... Best picture is the nails in the bottle picture.

: 5+++++/5 :D

I absolutely adore this polish! The colour is gorgeous! The formula is excellent! A one-coater!!! :D If you like teal, this one is da s--t! ;)

Do you share my enthusiasm?
Have you tried this polish?
