Hello lovelies & happy Sunday! Today we are throwing it way, way back for our Swatch Sunday pick is a nail polish classic: China Glaze For Audrey.
This shade was originally released way back in 2007–NailPolishCanada.com says it was part of the Something Blue collection. Nowadays, it is part of the permanent core collection, which means it’s easy to find pretty much anywhere China Glaze nail polishes are sold.
I originally bought it back in 2011 of 2012, when Sally Beauty opened near us. Naturally, as soon as I saw the name I knew I needed to own it, as Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favourite movies.
2 coats + Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat
For Audrey is a beautiful robin’s egg blue that is as close to Tiffany blue as is legally allowed. There is some confusion online on whether or not it is an exact dupe to that little blue box, but I feel like I’ve real online (somewhere… can’t remember now) that only Tiffany can use that specific shade of blue as they have legal ownership. I don’t have anything from Tiffany’s, so sadly I cannot confirm just how closely the two match.
Either way, For Audrey is a beautiful shade, with a smooth & creamy formula. I applied everything in two coats, but I did need to add some top coat in order to smooth things a bit — that could be the polish formula, or it could be the fact my bottle is 10 years old, but I feel like having to add a bit of top coat is kind of a non-issue, especially since I always add top coat to my manicures anyways.
& the colour is perfect for dreaming of Spring. It’s just a bright, vibrant colour. It has me thinking of those warmer days to come!
