This is THE perfect color for fall and the holiday season. This red is. Very deep, almost black cherry in color. It's got shimmer but isn't glittery. It's an amazing, interesting color with depth. I'm so glad I picked it up. It was also the last bottle in this shade, so that in and of itself should say something. Very flattering on my medium tan skin. I'll definitely be buying this one again!
This color is gorgeous. I always get compliments when wearing it. One of my favorites from CG.
Now that it's fall, time to go from crazy brights to vampy dark digits! I was so eager for some fresh paint that I made a trip to Sally's for the sole purpose of getting Ruby Slippers from China Glaze(to see what all the hype was about). When I got there, the first color I picked up was Heat of Africa and I didnt put it down till I got to the register. Its a dark shimmery(not glittery) red. I think this was the color I ultimately wanted to get. There was a very similar color that was a tad brighter red but I opted for the darker one. The second I got it on my nails, I was in love! The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the quality of the product. Applies well, opaque in even 1 coat but the lasting power sucks! After 4 days, I had to change my color cuz of the chips! I usually change my color every 7-10 days. But for some reason, I couldn't stand the amount of chipping this nail polish. My skin tone is still dark (med beige) from summer rays so maybe that's why it looks so good. I hope I still love it when my tan fades! As for now, this will be go to color of the Fall/Winter 2012.
I bought this polish about a year ago at Sally Beauty & never used it. Was in the mood today for a dark polish and this was my choice hoping it hadn't dried out & gotten gloopy. It hadn't!I like the application with this thinner polish as I can do a much neater job than with thicker polishes. Even with one coat it was very opaque and *gorgeous*!The color looks very very deep shimmery red/burgandy except when it looks more brown LOL just depends on the lighting. I'm not a fan of polishes with brown tones but this color is so beautiful I know it'll be a fave of mine for fall/winter. It's a sophisticated color that looks like it must be a very expensive polish (which it's not!) so if you're looking for a polish for a special occasion or just want a pick-me-up via a fab mani, give Heart of Africa a try!
I was told China Glaze nail polishes are the best, so I had to try them. This was the first color I tried. Not only is the color gorgeous, the wear of this polish is second to none. I usually re-do my manicure once a week and this is the first time that I went 7 days without even the slightest chip in sight! I'm very impressed! This polish truly is the best I've used. I use Orly Rubberized Base Coat and Orly "In A Snap" top coat, which are miracle products, too. Combined with this polish and I could go longer than a week between manicures. I've recently purchased China Glaze White on White (for a french manicure) and Up All Night. Can't wait to try more.
