China Glaze – On Safari Collection: Adventure Red-y NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 15 - 2012

Shade-wise, this is the Dita Von Teese of vampy reds.  It’s not hugely unique or as spellbinding as Ms DvT (oh look, that spells “deep vein thrombosis!” *Beavis laugh*) but it is a rather lovely darker red creme that flatters cool skintones very nicely indeed.  If it were a lipstick, I’d probably marry it.

Adventure Red-y (yawn name) isn’t very adventurous but it does offer coverage like the canopy of the Amazonian rainforest, opaque in two coats, it’s an impenetrable fortress for those pesky VNLs.

Good but standard Autumn nail colour fodder.

China Glaze – On Safari Collection: Adventure Red-y is available to buy online at BeautyBay.com, priced at £6.75

    Kinda pointless except I suppose there are young women starting to buy nail polish all the time.

    But still – why so many reds???

  2. aahh, pretty red! I tend to buy warm reds then go home to realize that I already have that warm red. This goes into my wish list!

    perfect shade of red and i actually like the name. it reminds of dora the explorer lol :) xx

  4. I only allowed myself to get 2 from the collection (el cheapass) and this was one I chose! It is maybe dull, but it is also a perfect deep blood red and I adore it. I do. Suits you very much! x
