China Glaze Desert Escape Collection Swatches & Review

Hello Polishers!,

How was your weekend? Mine was okay. Had a little me time. The had mommy and me day with my daughter which is always nothing but fun.

Today I will be sharing Desert Escape Collection. This is the second summer collection that China Glaze has put out this year. They're on a roll. I personally thought that the Electric Nights Collection (which can be found here and here) was going to be it from them for the summer!

The Desert Escape Collection consists of six polishes.

What's She Dune?
China Glaze Desert Escape Collection "What's She Dune?"

This is a nude-beige creme. The formula was smooth and the application was amazing with good coverage. At first when I saw the color I was having mixed feelings about it, but once I was able to get it on the nail I really liked it! What's She Dune is a almost a one coater but I used two. Depending on how you polish it could be one. In the photos is two thin coats with a top coat.

The Heat Is On

The Heat Is On is a bright orange-red. The formula was smooth but the first coat was a bit sheer so I did have some vnl (visible nail line). It had good coverage and built really nicely. With two coats you could still see a teeny bit of vnl, but it;s not that noticeable. I really like this red it's so pretty. In the photos is two thin coats with a top coat.

Rain Dance The Night Away

Next we have Rain Dance The Night Away. This is a beautiful turquoise creme polish. It has good coverage and is very smooth. This was one was another almost one coater but I used two. Again depending on how you polish you could very easily get away with one. This is my favorite out of this collection. In the photos is two thin coats with a top coat.

Meet Me In The Mirage
China Glaze Desert Escape Collection "Meet Me In The Mirage"

Meet Me In The Mirage is a rose-gold creme metallic polish. It has a really good formula and good coverage. This polish is a one coater! Meet Me In The Mirage is a metallic polish and with that comes brush strokes. This is probably my least favorite from the collection because I'm not a fan of metallic/frosts. Also I don't like how it looks against my skin tone. I wonder how it would work for stamping....In the photos is one thin coat with a top coat.

Don't Desert Me
China Glaze Desert Escape Collection "Don't Desert Me"


This is Don't Desert Me. Don't Desert Me is a beautiful fuchsia polish that contains shimmer. The  formula was smooth with good coverage and spread ability. This one just like Meet Me In The Mirage is brush stroke-y (not as bad) but it evened out a bit for me once top coat was applied. It is a pretty color and I like it better than Meet Me In The Mirage. In the photos is one thin coat with a top coat.

Don't Mesa With My Heart
China Glaze Desert Escape Collection "Don't Mesa With My Heart"

Last but not least from this six piece collection is Don't Mesa With My Heart. It is a smooth creme barbie pink polish. The formula was a bit streaky on the first coat but levelled out nicely on the second. I have a friend who would absolutely die for this color. In the photos is two thin coats with a top coat.
