Besides loving the name of this one I love me some blue! You might already know this…
I love this blue (in low light it looks almost purple!) from China Glaze. I used a base coat, two coats of color, and a top coat. I think this is the perfect blue for a lot of people. It’s just good stuff. I have had this color on for three days-looks great in the pics doesn’t it? I love the wear of China Glaze polishes. Just a little wear on the tips (my pointer finger especially, i point a LOT…) but thats it. This stays gorgeous for days!
Check this color out at Sally’s or Ulta for around $7. It’s from the Bohemian collection.
Here’s another shade from the Bohemian Collection. Rare & Radiant reminds me of another shade I have (Chanel Peridot I’m calling you OUT) but I know its going to last way longer on my nails. I did a base coat, two coats of Rare & Radiant, and a top coat. I love nail colors that look different depending on the light. Under low light this color looks green and in full sun it looks like a beautiful shimmery gold.
Look for this shade at Sallys or Ulta for around $7. I posted about a few of the other colors from the Bohemian Collection. Check out my posts on Deviantly Daring and Unpredictable if you missed them.
I’m going through a green phase. I have been putting green on my eyes and nails for a week now. I have no idea what is going on! This pretty shade from the China Glaze Bohemian Collection fits right in though. I have nothing like this in my stash and I think its a unique eye-catching color. I used a base coat, two coats of color, and a top coat.
Check for the Bohemian Collection at Sallys, Ulta, or anywhere else around you with China Glaze. For approx. $7 you can find some great colors that last a week easy. If you’d like a darker shade that is just as pretty check out Deviantly Daring from the Bohemian Collection.
This pretty color is from the Bohemian Collection and I think it’s my favorite. I’m crazy about teal in general. I did a base coat, two coats of Deviantly Daring, and a top coat. So pretty! This retails for approx. $7 so check it out at Ulta or your favorite place to get China Glaze colors. I’ll show you the other colors from the Bohemian Collection as I use them. There are six in all.
I love how it looks blue instead of teal depending on the light! Very cool:)
Who doesn’t need a Pool Boy?
Summer isn’t over and my nails are working it if I do say so myself. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic’s Pool Boy is a fun light blue shade that practically glows against my skin. I decided to put some of China Glaze’s Luxe and Lush (Hunger Games Collection) over top of the color for a fun twist. If you really want to see what Luxe and Lush can do put it over a deeper shade. But with a light shade like this it kind of has a snow flake effect.
I did a base coat, two coats of Pool Boy, a quick coat of Luxe and Lush, then a top coat. Whew….
Pool Boy is $8 and China Glaze colors are $7. Not bad and both should last five days easy without chipping.

Ready for the other half of this Fall Collection? These six colors are beautiful like the ones I showed you in Part 1. I’ll start with the two I’m a little crazy over. Jungle Queen and Man Hunt.
Jungle Queen (smoky violet) is a really pretty purple. I have no words for it. I’ll just show it to you, A LOT.
Man Hunt (bold cobalt blue) is one of those colors I can’t resist. I am crazy about blue nail polish. I don’t know what it is about blue but I can’t pass one (light blue, dark blue, sorta blue it doesn’t matter) without picking it up when I’m shopping. It’s so strange but take a look at this one! Also as a married woman I just like to use the words MAN HUNT as often as possible.
Here are four other great shades!
I Herd That (brilliant copper glitter) is a fun color. I have a weakness for glitter polish in general and for some reason gold toned ones are my favorites. Gold glitters are the only ones I put over all my fingers instead of just using them as an accent or glitter nail on my ring finger. I like gold everywhere!
I Herd That
Purr-fect Plum (bold burgundy) would catch my eye in a store too. It’s just plummy goodness and I can’t wait to put it on my toes.
Desert Sun (delicious caramel) just reminds me of food. Or candy to be exact. Good buttery candy. Mmmmhmmm. Or Pumpkin Spice Latte’s. Have you ever had one of those? That’s one of my favorite things about Fall. This shade looks nice against my skin too in my humble opinion.
Call of the Wild (chocolate brown-dark cherry blend) is the other vampy shade in the collection. I like vampy, I like it a lot. When I see girls wearing colors like this I don’t mess with them. Some women look at other women’s shoes/purses/outfits but I look at the nails. I’m not judging but to me they are a clue as to what is going on with someone. I see a shade like this and I know you are way too sophisticated for me to challenge in any way. Go ahead and cut in front of me in Starbucks. It’s ok. I know you’ll clothes-line me if I don’t let you go first!

Nice colors aren’t they? Which are your favorites? If you haven’t seen Part 1 you better check it out here.
I think there is a good variety in this collection of colors for everyone. It’s a good mix of traditional and new Fall shades to try. The glitters are fantastic and great to mix into your manicure. Think GLITTER NAIL y’all. Would it shock you to know I have started doing a glitter toe? Yeah, it’s come to that! I used my China Glaze Base Strong Adhesion Coat, two coats of color, and a top coat for all the pictures. Like I said in Part 1 every shade but the glitter (I Herd That) looks great after one coat if you are in a rush.
Let me know your favorites, I think the must haves after looking at all twelve shades are Elephant Walk, Prey Tell, Jungle Queen, and Man Hunt for me.
