China Glaze Elephant Walk

Hi everyone! Hope you had a lovely weekend! As for me, I spent the entire weekend taking care of my sick and extremely grumpy husband. He is always in a surly mood when he is sick, so it was a most trying weekend for me. *grumbles about men and their inability to handle sickness* :-)

Today, I have the first of three colors to show you from the twelve-polish China Glaze On Safari Fall 2012 Collection. Elephant Walk is a gray shade with a strong teal tone and a smattering of fine shimmers.







This is a really interesting color, shifting from a dark neutral gray to a more teal gray, depending on the lighting. The silver shimmers in it are very small and understated, so they add a small glimmer to the nail without making the finish appear metallic.

The formula spreads out into thin coats easily, while still giving a good amount of coverage. It is almost opaque in one coat, but I prefer two coats to even everything out. Overall, I really like this color. It feels like a cool, refreshing quench of light color in the midst of a summer overdose of brights and neons.

You can find Elephant Walk at your local nail salons and at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty for a retail price of $7 for 0.5 fl oz.

    1. I thought it was a cream too at first. It wasn't until I looked at it closely under the light that I realized it has shimmers. :-)

  6. Ohhh how beautiful, Yun! This one of the polishes I wanted to see first, you've red my mind! Look really good! Sure, it's not for right now, I'm thinking less hot weather... Or now, but with a tribal design on it!
    I hope you can relax now :) Men, yeah. It's another species.

      Good to know it's not just my man that is hard to deal with. I'd like to think it's because us women are the stronger gender. ;-)
