By now you might have noticed a coherent theme emerging from fall collections: jungles/safaris/places you might wear khaki pants to. China Glaze is no exception to the rule, with On Safari as the title of its fall collection, you can just imagine what kind of colors they proffer.
On Safari consists of ten cremes and two glitters, including:
- Kalahari Kiss: Light sand brown
- I’m Not Lion: Glistening gold and multi-color glitter
- Call of the Wild: Beautiful chocolate brown-dark cherry blend
- Adventure Red-y: Vivid red
- Desert Sun: Delicious caramel
- I Herd That: Brilliant copper glitter
- Man Hunt: Bold cobalt blue
- Exotic Encounters: Lush green crème with blue undertones
- Elephant Walk: Cool graphite grey
- Jungle Queen: Smoky violet
- Purr-fect Plum: Bold burgundy
- Prey Tell: Daringly dark red
On Safari is also available in two 6-piece sets:
- The "Native" Collection: Man Hunt, Exotic Encounters, Elephant Walk, Jungle Queen, Purr-Fect, and Prey Tell
- The "Tourist" Collection: Kalahari Kiss, I'm not Lion, Call of the Wild, Adventure Red-y, Desert Sun, and I Herd That
I received four random pieces from the collection to swatch, so without further ado...
Desert Sun was a surprise in that I was so sure I couldn't pull it off, but having it on my fingers changed my mind. Who knew a pumpkin shade wouldn't make my fingers look more yellow?
Purr-fect Plum is the quintessential fall shade (I know I said there's a jungle trend, and I don't care what they tell me. I know wine shades will be "in"), which I thought I should own by now – surprisingly, no. The closest I have are varying hues of rose that are not at all close.

Call of the Wild
I'm Not Lion
I was super excited because I received one of the glitters! I'm Not Lion is (I think? Not super sure about nail definitions) a holographic white/silver/pink/green glitter and of course it's my favorite of the bunch.
Everything is a one-coater and I applied it as such to show you it's possible (though if I were doing a real manicure I would still do two). Application was brilliantly easy and even I'm Not Lion was a breeze to remove.
Based on the press release, individual polishes retail for $7, while the 6-piece set retails for $42. However, I recall previous China Glaze polish purchases at a much lower rate, so remember to compare different sites like 8tybeauty, Amazon etc. before you hit the checkout button.
