China Glaze For Audrey!!!!

We all know I have a problem with turquoise polishes. It's more than a's full on obsession. Or, as we who grew up in the south would say "Turquaahhhs."

Let's get to the heart of the matter here though. That perfect Tiffany Blue.  I see turquoise, but who's counting (  This is a color that inspires calm. That is, unless, you're the recipient of such a box, in which case, feel free to freak the hell out.
For Audrey by China Glaze is meant to emulate this blue and pay homage to Audrey Hepburn.  They got this REALLY close and it is now my favorite turquoise of all time.(OF ALL TIMMMMEEEEEEE!!)  And you know it's got to be uber spectacular to unseat Zoya's Wednesday as my favorite.

So, thoughts on this polish.... it was a bit thin for my liking. It slid down into my cuticles a bit. Two coats for full coverage and I didn't let it dry long enough between coats so I got a little bubbling. To solve this I let the mani dry completely, applied one more coat on the bubbled nails and topped with Seche. Can you see any bubbles? Neither can I, and my camera sees waaaay more imperfections than the naked eye ever could. I need to get an older camera with less resolution.(HAH!)

I went to an event with the kids today where there were seriously like 50 inflatable water slides, games, sumo wrestling, jousting, all sorts of water games. This polish held up wonderfully. I expected chips galore. NONE :)

You guys also know by now that I can't leave well enough alone so I made a dotticure with an orange stick. For this I used WetnWild's Tropicalia for the bright coral pink dots and Julep's Daisy (yellow) and Morgan (purple) dots. I love how it turned out!

So, how much are you loving For Audrey right now? What is your absolute favorite color family of polish? know, that one that you can't help but buy, even though you've got a million similar.  It makes me think of that "Gee your nails look great" meme of her holding turquoise polishes saying "They're NOT the same, they're SIMILAR!" ....that's totally me to my husband.

Happy polishing,
Carrie :)
