Not so Wild about Wildlife

This is a very interesting duochrome. It came out of the bottle a lot thicker than Moonshadow did. Application was a little sloppier, but that could have been me. The color is unique that's for sure, but I am not sure how I liked it with my skin tone. It flashes mostly an antique gold, with some reddish pinkish, brown, and in low light an olive green. It was hard to get pictures of all the different things this does, but I tried...

Crappy cell phone picture, but it kind of captured the green tone.

Then I started reading about half-moon manicures, and decided to give that a try. This is OPI "Over the Taupe" over Wildlife:

I didn't do nearly as sloppy a job as I thought I would (I'm usually pretty klutzy with this stuff) but it isn't exactly red-carpet ready either! But I think it's pretty cool for a first try.


  1. I've read a few reviews of Wildlife and it seems to be 50/50 - people either love it or hate it. I don't like it personally - it reminds me of the skin colour of the aliens on some sci-fi show I used to watch.

  2. curiosity only deeps about this mysterious nail polish. I can see that I'll have to buy it! Your photos were great. I love all the different angles and lighting. Cool idea to layer Over the Taupe,for the half moon mani.

  3. I love this shade. It was the first one I tried from the new collection. I ordered the whole collection. It is such a gorgeous color. I love the flashes of deep rose and gold. It's a lovely olive green. I thin it looks very pretty on you. You really captured the polish well with your photos.
