Happy Tuesday!

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

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

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

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

Sea Spray is a light blue with silver/blue shimmer. Another one I liked but didn’t seem very unique. Three coats.

Below Deck

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!
