China Glaze Jungle Queen

Even though it's 100 degrees outside here in South Texas, the fall nail polish collections are rolling into your stores.  I swear, if I see Halloween items, I'm going to have to dance in a circle or something (negatively).  I hate feeling rushed through seasons.  Regardless, today, I pulled Jungle Queen from the On Safari! collection brought to you by China Glaze.  This is a smoky purple with this awesome purple shimmer running through it.  Trust me.  I've heard it's a dead on duplicate for Chanel Paradoxal (which I reviewed a year and a half ago) but I think this is more smoky in color.

No, I don't normally paint my thumb nail when I'm swatching nail polish.  I do paint all 10 fingers from time to time.  I'm wearing a base coat of Poshe, only one coat of polish and a top coat of nubar Diamont.  The formula was pretty excellent - no pooling, no spotting.

See that flash of purple?!  Love it.

Here in the shade took some heavy photo correcting because my hands kept looking lobster red.  The reflection on my nails that you see (especially on my index finger) is just me - nothing wrong with the nail itself.  (You can almost see my camera!)

Finally indoors with the flash and that purple shimmer jumps out and wants to eat you.  Rawr.  Jungle Queen.  Put a tiara on it.
