China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Cabin Fever

China Glaze — Cabin Fever (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: China Glaze 2015 Fall, The Great Outdoors

Welp, my low-buy’s not going that great! I spotted a slew of colors from China Glaze’s new fall collection, The Great Outdoors, at Winners and decided to pick up…several. This is the first China Glaze collection I’ve been wowed by for some time now! I got Cabin Fever, Check Out the Silver Fox, Free Bear Hugs, Pondering, Sleeping Under the Stars, and Wood You Wanna?—I’ll review one today and the remaining five next week.

Cabin Fever (82713) is one of a few iridescent polishes in this collection. It’s a cranberry pink-to-caramel bronze duochrome with a metallic finish. The pink has a touch of plum; the bronze has a touch of antiqued gold.

It’s just about as perfect a fall nail color as you could ask for! Think cranberry sauce and turkey stuffing. (Or maybe I just have food on my mind.) I literally could not stop staring at my nails with this on, and trying to catch it at different angles.

Application was excellent, smooth and streak-free. Two coats was perfect. Hurry up and grab this one, guys!

I’ll leave you all with a Halloween movie recommendation (hey, it’s only five weeks away), which is the first thing I thought of when I saw the name of this polish:

The Cabin in the Woods movie poster
Isn’t that a fantastic poster?

The Cabin in the Woods is a comedy/horror movie and the brainchild of Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon. It’s satirical, hilarious, and strange, and you’ll have fun trying to figure out exactly what the hell is going on (there’s a twist at the end, plus a great cameo). And, even if comedies/horror films aren’t your thing, it also stars Chris Hemsworth.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer retails for US$7.50 and is 0.5 US fl oz / 14 mL. China Glaze nail polishes are free of toluene, added formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and are made in the USA.

China Glaze is part of American International Industries (who also own brands like Seche, EzFlow and Ardell), a private company based in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

  1. I went into The Cabin in the Woods know a little bit about it and wow, that movie is a completely new genre it itself, lol! I can’t even explain it to anyone. I was surprisingly entertained even though it was quite gory… the merman, lol.
    I can totally understand how this polish shade lured you out of your low buy – it’s absolutely gorgeous! I’m trying to think if I have anything like it in my collection… I used to have the China Glaze shade in Awakening which I think it kind of similar but less bronze:

    And Color Club Wild and Willing is also similar bit with more flecks:

    • I loved that movie so much! It wasn’t as scary as I expected it would be, but really funny and took on all the classic and modern horror movie tropes. The merman! LOLOL. And, “Am I on speakerphone?!”

      I have Awakening, and yes, it’s so pretty! Wild & Willing actually looks surprisingly close, and yes, more glittery than frosty. Both super nice – thanks for the heads up on the Color Club.


  2. Tsk! Tsk! And nail polishes failed your low buy.😂Believe me when I was on a low buy, I refrain from going to supermarkets or anything of some sort for I know I’m weak to resists.
    Why do I have a feeling that we’re running through the same wavelength re:polishes? I just recently bought an irredescent one. 😜
    This color are like the autumn leaves, I know the feeling of admiring in diffrent angle and catching the right color.

    • Haha, yes, it’s terrible! I just shouldn’t go, but the last couple times, I was actually looking for non-cosmetic items, and I just can’t leave without checking out the nail polish, right? 😀 Iridescents are great any old time, but they are definitely more reminiscent of fall, to me!
