China Glaze Jungle Queen versus Chanel Paradoxal

I made a quick comparison of China Glaze Jungle Queen (JQ) and Chanel Paradoxal (P). They are both two coats on the picture below. For me these are not dupes, JQ is slightly darker. I also found JQ much better to apply so I really recommend it. It is a great polish and much cheaper than Chanel of course :) Which one do you like more?

China Glaze On Safari Fall 2012 Collection - Swatches and Review

I have swatches of the fall China Glaze collection called On Safari. Here they are:

KALAHARI KISS

I´M NOT LION

CALL OF THE WILD

ADVENTURE RED-Y

DESERT SUN

I HERD THAT

MAN HUNT

EXOTIC ENCOUNTERS

ELEPHANT WALK

JUNGLE QUEEN

PURR-FECT PLUM

PREY TELL

Well this was my first fall collection review of this year. I just don´t know if it isn´t too early for me :) I am still rocking all the neons and bright polishes. Maybe that is the reason why I am not super wowed by the collection. There are a few shades that I know I will never wear such as Kalahari Kiss or Desert Sun. On the other hand I found a few shades that I am absolutely in love with. Those would be Adventure Red-Y or Man Hunt. 
The formula on all of these was fine, no problems with application. The coverage on all of these was great in two coats except for the glitters which were three. 
Let me know which ones are your favourites!

Illamasqua Swinger versus Orly Luxe

I absolutely love gold foils for summer! Especially when I know I will be lazy to change my polish to match my clothes. Gold looks great with a tan, with purple, with turquoise, with white...do I have to continue? Lately I found myself wearing the newest Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Swingers (S) a lot. I thought I would look if I have something similar. The closest I could find was Orly Luxe (L). They are both two coats on the swatch below. Hard to tell the difference, isn´t it?
