Throwback Thursday: China Glaze Exotic Encounters

Green is my hardest color to pull of with nail polish. Actually, green in general is not my color at all. I don't own any green clothes. Imagine my difficulty on St. Patrick's Day. Teals can even be difficult for me even though I love them. I have oldie (not very oldie), but goodie China Glaze teal today I think works out well for me. 

Exotic Encounters
Exotic Encounters is a medium dusty teal creme. 

Color: I think it's the dusty quality of this shade of teal that makes this work for me. Is it me or do you feel like muted/dusty shades almost work as neutrals? Does this make sense? Colors like this I feel really can work with most anything you wear because they have that touch of gray to them? I'm rambling, I know! I really like this color, and I'm happy to find a greenish shade that I can wear well!

Collection: China Glaze On Safari Fall 2012

Formula: Great formula. I used 2 coats in the swatch above. 

Price: This can be found on mulitple e-tailrs, ebay, or Amazon in the the $3.75-$8.00. Google it! :)

Overall: Very nice muted teal shade. The formula is on point, and this color seems like it would be flattering and wearable for most. 

My Rating 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Thursday!

    This is one of my all-time favorite China Glaze colors. I had to stop using it because I was going through the bottle so fast. It's now half way full. Definitely need a backup bottle!

  3. Oh no! You do. I did that with China Glaze Strawberry Fields!
