Are you ready to go on a man hunt? Make sure you bring some super-sharp spears, ladies! We want ’em to know that we ain’t playin’!
Let’s make our way in further. Aha! There they are…sitting on the sofa with the remote control in their hands! 😉
China Glaze Man Hunt is a rich, pigmented, primary-blue lacquer that goes on beautifully and looks really shiny. It comes from the China Glaze On Safari Collection.
I really like the safari theme, and there seems to be diverse colours and finishes to please a lot of different people.

China Glaze Man Hunt Review
Man Hunt by China Glaze is a saturated blue that’s strong and dramatic. At first, it reminded me of Essie Mesmerize, but when I looked at them together, I realized that Man Hunt is darker and more navy blue than Mesmerize.
While I enjoyed wearing this colour by itself (it looks so slick!), I think this would be great for a base colour for nail art!
Despite this blue being dark, it never quite looked black to me, even in dim lighting. That’s a huge plus for me because near-black shades frustrate me (as you may have heard me complain about before! If I wanted to wear black, I would!).
Man Hunt is a creme polish, but it gives off that shiny look, so maybe there’s a touch of jelliness to it. (You won’t get any visible nail line with this like you would with a jelly polish.)
Application & Formula
The formula was great – not too thin and not too thick. I found it very easy to control, and the pigmentation was wonderful. You get a lot of coverage at one coat, and then you just need a second to even everything out. You shouldn’t need to use a third coat.
Final Verdict: 8/10
This kind of dark blue is really sexy to me. The formula is good, so even if you’re not the best at applying nail polish, your results will still be impressive! 🙂
Sure, this blue isn’t the most unique blue out there, but if you don’t have any blues like this, I recommend getting this one.
Do you prefer dark blues or light blues best? What’s the sexiest polish you’ve ever worn? How do you cheer yourself up when you’re feeling blue?
This is a really nice shade of blue. I agree that it’s not very unique, but I could never get enough blue polish. I do prefer lighter blues though.

Once again, we’re on the same page. 🙂
I really like it (how could I not?? Its blue!!) but it seems like I’ve seen this in other collections already. I wonder if there is a dupe out there for it? My most sexy type of polish is darkened red with shimmer. And it always cheers me up too!!

Yes, there’s probably a dupe out there because it’s a blue creme. If I rummaged through my stash, I could probably find one. Even Essie Mesmerize is fairly close.
Great photos! I really did not need another blue cream in this color hue – but I put this shade into my order when I sent for a couple shades out of this collection. I do love this blue. It’s not got the same formula as the red in this collection has. Wish it did as the red is an amazing cream that is opaque in 1 coat and totally leveled. My fav blue polishes tend to be just this shade or a tish brighter like a bright royal blue. I cannot wear powder blues at all – they give me lobster hands.
Thank you! 🙂
Oh, I’m going to try the red out soon! 🙂 A one-coater is golden! Yeah, I also get major lobster hands with powder blues. I need them to be more noticeably blue (even pastel) and not as close to white.
I have heard many a good thing about this polish 🙂 looks really pretty on you!i bet you the paisley stamp would look sooo pretty on it (from the new BM set)

Hehe…I can always count on you to provide smart stamping advice! 😀
I prefer blues of any kind. 😉 But if we’re talking sexy, I tend to reach for vampy red shimmers. Like China Glaze Branding Iron. That’s one seeeeeksiiii nail polish!
I actually don’t have a dupe for this in my stash of blues and I’m so happy to call it mine. 😀 Thanks again for hooking me up, Mary! 😀 (And you were right, I’m glad you included the box!)

Oh, I know you, you blue lover, you! 😉
Yes, Branding Iron is a hot one…hehe, as the name would suggest.
Did you end up keeping the box? (Just wish that I could send the protective plastic, too, so you could have it in immaculate condition.)
