China Glaze New Bohemian swatches and GIVEAWAY

China Glaze Unpredictable China Glaze Rare and Radiant

The China Glaze New Bohemian collection is part of their Fall 2012 collection which encompasses their On Safari shades as well, totaling a crazy number of 18 colors. My heart went pitter patter when I saw the China Glaze New Bohemian colors. Why? See after the jump!

The descriptions alone for the New Bohemian got me all crazy, then I saw the promo shots. TO DIE FOR! I happened to go to my nail polish guys the other day and there they were… China Glaze New Bohemian display. *swoons*

Formula was fast drying enough, but it was a hot day when I swatched these, so please keep in mind it bubbled in between coats, but that is my issue and not the formula for the China Glaze New Bohemian collection. There was decent color shift in the colors themselves, but actually capturing any of them has proven to be a pain…So what you will see is some pretty colors with great opacity, but no shift. It’s there in person and in the bottle, but not in the photos.  Sorry…i did my best.

As always, please click on the thumbnails for the original image size.

Unpredictable is described as a “Multidimensional gorgeous green“, which was stated in their press release. Rare & Radiant is an “Extraordinarily rich gold”. I couldn’t agree more. Of the entire collection, I felt these two had the most dramatic and noticeable color shift. Sadly, these are colors we’ve seen before. However, these are much more affordable than other brands (Chanel Peridot, anyone?!).

No Plain Jane is a “Lavish lavender-pink” and I think that with my skin tone, that pink reminded me of one of my favorite stones – a tourmaline. Swanky Silk is a “Brilliant beige with peach undertones“. I think that’s why it didn’t work that well with my skin coloring.

China Glaze Deviantly Daring China Glaze Want My Bawdy

Want My Bawdy is a “Sexy sapphire blue” and  Deviantly Daring is an “Adventurously bold peacock teal“. What WMB fails to convey in the picture is this slight undercurrent of purple. My camera could not capture it, but it was noticeable in person. This was an extremely flattering color for me! However, when I applied DD, my heart stopped. I don’t like teals. I buy them thinking I will like them, but once on me, inevitably something is wrong like while dusty in the bottle, it doesn’t look so great on me or it’s just flat out not the kind of teal I want or was looking for. While DD has a shimmer, this shimmer works with this particular shade and I really love it.

Overall, the China Glaze New Bohemian collection rocks it – lovely bold colors that look much better in person than they do in a photo. Like it enough to enter my giveaway? You do? Here is what you have to do…

    Okay I’m really not good at following directions. Pick one. Yeah sure. Once I found some of the Stockholm ones I just couldn’t. So I’ve narrowed it down…top threeish.

    I would probably pick the first one though (of the lingonberries), because my boyfriend loves them!

    It was so hard to choose just one but I loved the photos from Alcatraz, I love the textures old building provide.

    Girl, I don’t know what you’re talking about — I had to pop over and see your swatches, and they’re absolutely beautiful! They don’t look bleh and boring at all! PS: I love, love this collection!
