China Glaze For Audrey

I think cremes bore me.  I got bored of my Agent Lavender and decided to decorate with China Glaze For Audrey and a dotting tool.  However, I am NOT an artist, so I ended up just painting 1 coat of For Audrey on all my nails and following up with two coats of Seche Vite Crystal Clear Top Coat.




I don't ever really recommending doing this only because you can get a bleed through of the old color and not be able to see the true beauty for what this is.


For Audrey is a play on the signature Tiffany trademark color.  However, to explain to you how little I know about fashion, jewelry and the like, I originally thought the trademark color was a royal blue, which is why I didn't understand this whole robin egg blue thing.  /facepalm


I have real swatches though - For Audrey was originally my problem child - beautiful, but horrible to wear.  The first time I tried it, it took me 3 coats and lots of crying  before I smudged it all off.  The second time was better - one 2 coats but the second coat was purposely thicker to cover up any streaking from the 1st coat.  




China Glaze [official website] can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe Beauty [official website] or Sally's Beauty Supply [official website].

  1. I have this on my nails right now! Not exactly a fall/winter color but whatever

    What's the pink polish in your header called?

  2. Yeah, it's definitely a pop of color but it almost makes me happier with all this gross weather.

    The color in my header is called Rose Tea and it was one of the 50 specialty polishes that came out this summer/fall from China Glaze.
