China Glaze Sea Spray

This was the other color from the China Glaze Spring 2011 collection Anchors Away that I was super excited for.  Sea Spray is a light blue creme that just sings nautical and ocean (well, not Gulf of Mexico water) and spring... yay.

I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Sea Spray and a top coat of Seche Vite.  The formula on this however was HORRIBLE for me.  It was so thick and goopy.  It will be thinned (oh yes, you should have been)...  more on that in a minute.

A friend just recently asked me about a nice baby blue - this does have some greyness to it - but it's still blue... I'll have to see if she likes it.  I love it.  Here's a bonus sky picture.

Love.  Next is shade.

You can see how it leaked on my cuticles and I didn't quite catch it with my paintbrush.  I just bought 2 new brushes to try but just haven't opened them yet.

Finally indoors with the flash.  I really need to find a better way to do this, but whatever.

So the day after I swatched this beautiful nightmare, I woke up and immediately smelled nail polish in my house.  LOADS OF NAIL POLISH.  I ran into my office to find this.

Oh yes, one shattered blue nail polish.  This is the 2nd blue that I've lost (the first was a bottle of Konad Princess Stamping Polish).  I was so ticked, mostly because this collection wasn't in Sally's Beauty Supply this year.  Thankfully, I was able to pick up a new bottle from Discount Nails in San Antonio.  They have this little shop PACKED full of beauty supplies.  I wish I could sneak a picture.  It's so out of left field too - in this HUGE parking lot of abandoned buildings near a school?  It's hard to explain but I LOVE it.  I bought two old China Glaze bottles there last time I was in as well that will eventually be reviewed.
