China Glaze For Audrey

November 26, 2011

China Glaze produced this lovely Tiffany-inspired blue and called it For Audrey (as in Hepburn – Breakfast at Tiffany’s) I picked it up since it seems to be a staple.

Scrangie says it’s one of her favorite teals and it certainly looks lovely on her. On me? I don’t think it’s too flattering. It probably doesn’t help that the formula was a little gummy. What do you think? Is it just too stark for me?

This one is a winner! Not only do I love this color, it got exclamatory compliments on the bus.

Two coats will do it, and this baby wore like iron. See how green it looks on me? I had the impression that this was a yellow polish, but not on me. Chartreuse, maybe. With gold shimmer. Which is a gorgeous combination… *sigh*

 

When you get it into low light, say, moody overhead lighting in fancier restaurants? A reddish microshimmer shows up, almost like a duochrome. The waiter must have questioned my sanity, but I wasn’t able to capture the shimmer. Here’s another photo anyway!

Here’s a quick shot of China Glaza Papaya Punch, a great Halloween orange (but also an all-time favorite for this lover of all things orange!)

The formula isn’t great – mine feels really sticky/goopy. I do think it was opened and perhaps fooled with before I bought it because the bottle neck was messy with polish. But hey! I will deal to wear this orange.

 

Do you wear holiday-themed colors or nail art?
