China Glaze- Release (Giver Collection)

China Glaze Release The Giver Collection Swatch

I've got a quick swatch for you today. This is Release from the Giver collection by China Glaze. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I've read all four books in the series. Based on some of the reviews of the movie I think I might try not to spoil things too much by watching a movie that will just make me angry... like the Divergent movies. I mean.. did they even read the books when they wrote that screenplay? 

I will tell you, I thought the Giver was the weakest book in the series (even though it was still pretty good). The next three books each build on the original story in a unique way. When it all comes together in the last book it's almost magical. I could be wrong about the movie though. If you've seen it would you recommend it?

I've got on two coats of Release. It has a nice formula- good opaque coverage without dragging. This purple shade is similar to a few others in my collection. The smoky grey tint is what makes this one a little different. With purple and grey being two of my favorite colors of course I love this one.

I wasn't really impressed with the giver collection as a whole, but I'm finding I like the colors individually much better. Some of them don't seem to "go" with the others, but on their own the colors are interesting and just different enough from others I own to make them worth buying. I ended up with only three out of the twelve shades, but I'm happy with the ones I got. What did you think of this collection? Do you have a favorite polish from it?
