China Glaze Exotic Encounters
If you care much about fashion forecasts, you should definitely be familiar with Pantone's seasonal Fashion Color Report. There's good news if you're looking for an Ultramarine Green polish because this is dead on. The formula/application is pretty standard China Glaze; two coats for glossy, saturated color. EE is part of the Fall On Safari collection and it's really pretty, I don't have many polishes in the same ballpark, so it's worth a look in my book. It seems like OPI Jade is the New Black may be similar. JITNB seems to have a lot less blue, and more yellow, making it warmer. I'll check later and post a comparison. Not surprisingly, the on-trend China Glaze has a couple other On Safari polishes to match up or complement other shades in the Fall 2012 Pantone report; Olympian Blue is similar to Man Hunt, Honey Gold is like a mix between Desert Sun and Kalahari Kiss or even I Herd That, if you like your Honey Gold glittery.
