Below: Exotic Expedition, a fire engine red with my favorite glass flecked finish. Click pictures for detail. This is very similar to China Glaze Cherry Pie. Pre-clean up.
I spotted these last week and picked up 2 of the 4 polishes that are part of the display. The display reads: "Bronze Gone Brazen, Summer of Safari 2009". It includes some lip glosses, eye shadow quads and bronzing powders, as well as 4 nail polishes. I only have 3 or 4 L'Oreal polishes and I thought these colors looked nice, so for the good of my collection I thought it best to pick them up! How could I not when they were BOGO and I had 2 $2.00 coupons? My total cost was .99 so I didn't feel too much guilt. The makeup is geared toward coppers and bronzes, while the nail polish includes a bright bronze-gold (shown above, Desert Dawn), a bright fire engine red with glass flecks (shown above, Exotic Expedition), a bright gold which I didn't get (called Tribal Treasure) and a dusty rose with a hint of beige, which I also passed on (called Safari Sunset). They applied well in 2 coats, and although L'Oreal polishes have a somewhat stiff brush and a thicker formula than what I'm used to, they gave me no problem. Speaking of safari's, my brother-in-law is going to Africa on one this summer and I'm thinking about asking him to look for nail polish for me. Something tells me he wouldn't be too enthusiastic about my request!
