China Glaze The Great Outdoors... S'more Fun

Echo was pretty well behaved this morning... she only tried to kill me a couple times ;) she hates chickens, and some live behind the indoor arena, AND the farrier was working next to the arena as well. it was just too much for her scaredy cat self! i didn't fall off, so today was obviously a win for me :D

i'm SO excited to start sharing the new China Glaze collection, The Great Outdoors, with you all! i *think* this is the one that i've been most excited about since seeing the press release of the year... although, i do tend to get excited about new collections... but this one just looked spectacular. and it didn't disappoint!! several multichromes, a beautiful glitter, and lovely cremes... it's just yummy :)

we'll kick off with S'more Fun, a strongly yellow-toned lime green creme. this sounds so gross but... it's kind of one of those booger colors! for me, this is a nice transition color from summer to fall... still light, but not ultra bright. it does look a bit different in different lighting, sometimes pulling more green and sometimes more yellow. i was hesitant because colors like this don't usually look very good on me, but i have to say this is probably the best one i've tried. (and this collection wins again!!). the other amazing factor is formula. most colors in this vein are sheer and streaky and a general pain to work with... this one is none of those things! two easy peasy coats for full opacity and a shiny finish. to add more shine, i would recommend finishing off with topcoat!

two coats S'more Fun, topped off with one coat Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat. (both are press samples).

as per the press release, '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.'  

the only thing i don't get about this polish is the name... can anyone explain what it has to do with green polish?! Ria :)
