Are you ready to rain dance the night away?
Available as of June 1, this 6 piece collection is called Desert Escape. I was sent this collection for review. Group shot:
I posted this when I published the press release, but just to refresh your memory, the China Glaze Desert Escape collection also features two nail art kits:
Fringe with Benefits: Includes three lacquers and a set of temporary tattoos
Art You Looking Tribal: Includes three lacquers and a black Stripe Rite nail art liner
Also available: China Glaze Tribal Council, a set of six micro mini bottles of the lacquer collection.
The complete China Glaze Desert Escape collection including the nail art kits and micro minis will be available at a new online retailer for the brand, LockAndMane.com.

First up, this metallic rose gold polish is called Meet Me In The Mirage. Looking at the bottle, I was fearing a brush strokey finish, which I dislike, but it actually wasn't at all! Joy! As you can see, it does have a cool metallic looking finish, turning gold in some lights and copper in others. This is three thin coats with topcoat.
Next, this fuchsia metallic is called Don't Desert Me. It applied quite streaky but dried not-so-streaky, which was nice to see, though def not a 100% smooth finish. This is two coats with topcoat.
On to the cremes! I was pleasantly surprised by a few of the formulas. I love a good neutral creme. What's She Dune? is opaque in just two coats. I am positive that the bone meets almond shade will be flattering on many skin tones, including mine, LOL.
This lovely sky blue is Rain Dance The Night Away. I think the sky blue from The Giver collection could be a dupe but I'll get back to you on that. The formula was better than usual for a pastel. This is two coats and topcoat.
Don't Mesa With My Heart is a bubblegum pink creme. Another color with potential for streakiness, the formula was also better than you may expect. Two coats with topcoat resulted in cheerful bubblegum perfection.
Last but not least, this red is The Heat Is On. Almost a true red, this has just the tiniest lean of orange which gives it a desert vibe. Two coats is all you need!
There you have it! What's She Dune? is my favorite given both the formula and color.
Remember, this collection is not as easy to find as other China Glaze collection. Your best place to find the whole set is LockAndMane.com.
