China Glaze Desert Escape... Don't Desert Me

had two fantastic lessons with Echo this week! she's being super good, we did dressage yesterday and jumped today... and we're definitely improving :) i don't have lessons for the next two weeks while my trainer is away, so we'll be working hard on getting stronger and more confident together!

super excited to start reviewing the China Glaze Desert Escape collection today! we're kicking off with Don't Desert Me. (it's a press sample, kindly provided to me for review). this polish is a beautiful fuchsia with a pearl finish. it's so reflective that it almost looks like it has a duochrome cast to it... this is one of those polishes that looks pretty in the bottle, but AMAZING on the nail! in the swatch photo you can see some brushstrokes, but they really aren't noticeable to the naked eye... i think it's because it's so shiny! the color is even more rich and saturated than in the photo as well. i thought this polish would be sheer, but i was delighted to find it pigmented and completely opaque at two coats... this polish was definitely a sleeper hit for me :D i highly recommend a shiny topcoat to bring out all this polish has to offer!

two coats Don't Desert Me, one coat of Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat. (both are press samples).

this collection has a little different distribution than normal China Glaze products, so i'm just going to cut and paste the information so i don't mess it up! i changed up the color so it will be more noticeable :)

         The individual shades sold as open stock colors will only be available on

        Sally’s will only carry select nail art kits but they will not retail the individual colors.

        Ulta is not carrying this particular collection. 

So is the best retailer to get the complete collection! 

i'm so excited about this collection, i hope you are, too!! Ria :)
