China Glaze Exotic Encounters and Elephant Walk: Swatches and Review

Hello gentle readers.

The safari rolls on across the Savannah with:

Exotic Encounters. Beautiful, dusty medium green crelly. Yummmm...  This is two coats and top coat.





Next, we marvel to a pachyderm parade with the splendid Elephant Walk. This soft, grey creme with silver shimmer is as beautiful as the glorious creatures for whom it was named. This swatch is two coats and top coat.





What can I say about the formula on these? What I have been saying... Fabulous. Sorry, even my descriptive powers deplete after a certain amount of use. lol Besides, they aren't necessary, in this case because this stuff is... Just... Fabulous. 

Have you purchased either of these two beauties? Both, perhaps? What do you think of them? If you must have them, they are in wide release, right now. So get them. 

Thank you so much for popping by, reading and perusing my review. Have a terrific day and may your polish never bubble.

  5. They are, aren't they? I love that shimmer, too. It really elevates what would otherwise be a pretty but not so special grey.

  10. Maybe its just my eyes but elephant walk is a dusty light blue with a strong grey undertone. I keep seeing reviews of it being grey.

  11. I coveted Exotic Encounters and grabbed it as soon as my local place got it in stock, but now I need to head back and grab Elephant Walk too--that shimmer is just too pretty! ;)

  14. I bought Elephant Walk on my second passing of this collection. I never could find Exotic Encounters however and still am lemming it - wondering however if I have something super close to it already in my stash? This looks to have a bit more green in it than the teal creams I have now.

  15. Let me see what I have. I think that I may have something similar. I'll do a quick comparison and see how it shakes out. If it is dupe-y, it's a polish that is easy to find. :)
