China Glaze® New Bohemian Fall 2012: Swatches

Here they are! Sorry it took so long, my BS (Beauty Supply) had 5 of the 6 bottles and then I had to go around town looking for the 6th was annoying, but I found it.:)

Unfortunately my BS had the bottles with the silver caps (love them), but Sally's Beauty Supply had the bottles with the black caps (not so much love), so one of my bottles has a black cap. :(

BUT...for the photo moment, I decided to borrow a cap from another bottle, so they all looked pretty and matching, LOL...Yeah...I'm a freak like that :):)

First Up...

Multidimensional gorgeous green
3 coats, no top coat

In the shade...

Subtle duo-chrome, but still very pretty! Metallic lime green with olive green shimmer. I like how "in the shade", it leans more blue, oh yeah!

"Rare b& Radiant"
Extraordinarily rich gold
3 coats, no top coat

In the shade...

Another subtle duo-chrome. Golden shimmer with flashes of green.  It's nice, but there are so many other versions of this same color with better duo-chrome, Chanel, OPI, Jessica, Catrice...the list goes on and on. :)

"Swanky Silk"
Brilliant beige with peach undertones
3 coats, no top coat

In the shade...(my pinkie was doing something weird in this shot, she didn't make the cut) LOL!

The duo-chrome finish in this one is more subtle than the first two. Soft pink with beige shimmer. Flashes a soft golden color which is nice, but this is not my favorite :(

"No Plain Jane"
Lavish lavender pink
3 coats, no top coat

In the shade... (no pinkie here either )

This is pretty, but no duo-chrome here. Pinky-Lilac with a lilac shimmer. Th flash is almost  taupe-ish? LOL!  There is a slight duo-chrome if you look closely, squint your eyes, take a shot of tequila and stand on your head...LOL :):)

"Want My Bawdy"
Sexy Sapphire Blue
3 coats no top coat

In the shade...

Is it duo-chrome? I love it? YES. It's electric and super, super pretty!  Electric blue with Navy shimmer, oh yeah!

...and now for the one that I had to hunt down at Sally's... and the only one that was opaque in 2 coats.

"Deviantly Daring"
Adventurously bold peacock teal
2 coats, no top coat

In the shade...

Greenish teal with darker teal shimmer.  Is this duo-chrome? ..Ehh...Err...Maybe? No, not really.  Is it pretty! Oh yeah!!!! But then again are you surprised? I love my blues!!!!!

They all dried really well, no issues, there. I do wish they were more opaque and did not require 3 coats, but you can't have it all.  Out of these I would grab "Unpredictable", "Rare and Radiant", "Want my Bawdy" and "Deviantly Daring".

Only because they are pretty..not because they are "duo-chromes", because they are not the best duo-chromes I've seen.  :)

The China Glaze® New Bohemian collection will be available at fine salons and beauty supply stores nationwide in August 2012.  Individual polishes retail for $6.99 MSRP.

Keep It Sweet!

Pin It!

Beautiful swatches Jackie! Do you have the Deborah Lippmann Mirror chromes? I'm wondering how some of them compare!

Jackie S. said...

@Carly @Lacquered Lover- Nope I did not buy any of those, but I have heard that some of the Bohemians are dupes of that collection.

I only picked up Deviantly Daring - the only one I was really interested in. I don't mind that these are all chrome or metallic finishes, but I feel like they were marketed as duochromes. Once I got over the initial disappointment, I really quite like them!

Carly @ Lacquered Lover said...

Jacki of course I HAVE the DL but only got 3 of these and of course not the dupey ones! hahaha. Between the two of us we could have a great comparison! :)

Thank you so much for these pretty swatches. You just saved my wallet for being emptied - the only one I have my eyes on now is Deviantly Daring.
