China Glaze Jungle Queen

I haven't posted in a long time.  This manicure is from a while ago, and the pictures have been sitting on my computer.  Please forgive the ragged cuticles and terrible cleanup.  Life has been crazy for the last few months between work and afterschool activities for my boys.  My nails and cuticles have also been a mess for the last few months so I haven't been posting.  Between my chaotic life and weak nails blogging has taken a back seat.  I'm hoping to get back into it now that things have gotten back into a routine and my nails are finally healthy again.

Today I've got China Glaze Jungle Queen.  It is from the Fall On Safari collection.  They came out summer of 2012.  I only picked up a few colors from this collection.

Let me start out by saying that I love the color on this one, but application was a mess.  My bottle was really thin and it flooded the cuticles no matter how much I wiped of the brush.  I might let the bottle sit open for a while and let it thicken up a bit.  I ended up getting decent coverage after 2 coats. 

This color is a dusty gray purple with a pink shimmer.  The shimmer was really hard to pick up on the nail with the camera, but you can see it in the bottle shot.
