As you have probably already heard, China Glaze has a new twelve piece collection for spring 2011 called Anchors Away.
This collection underwhelmed me a bit, to be completely honest. There is no single color in it that made me extremely excited, most were just “nice”. I’m not sure why, but it is what it is.
Today I have part I for ya, check them out.
Sunset Sail is a light peach with subtle silver shimmer. I thought it was going to be a lot more sheer than it wound up being, but I did use three coats. I actually like it more than I initially anticipated on me also.
White Cap is a very pale white with lots of yellow/gold shimmer. This was ok, just too sheer for me even after three coats.
Knotty is a light warm brown sugar type color with silvery shimmer. This one doesn’t work on my skin tone at all because it’s too orange/yellow for me. This is three coats.
Pelican Gray is a pale blueish gray with silver shimmer. This was one of my favorite ones, but it’s still not all that unique to me. This was three coats.
Sea Spray is a light blue with silver/blue shimmer. Another one I liked but didn’t seem very unique. Three coats.
Below Deck is a dusky purple/taupe creme and it’s very pretty and interesting. I do think it’s quite similar to Sephora by OPI Metro Chic though (from what I can remember). This was two coats.
Stay tuned for part II soon!
