China Glaze Ahoy! Swatch

Good morning, dear readers!

Today I have China Glaze Ahoy! from the Anchors Away collection to show you! :D Yesterday I had a lot of fun. My Dad, sister and I went out shopping, and we stopped at Sally's Beauty Supply. My sister was like "pick any 3 polishes you want" for my Christmas present. I was so happy!! XD So this polish is one of the three. :D I look forward to showing you the other two soon. ^-^ She also got me another hand moisturiser (the Beyond Belief ones that I love!) in Pomegranate Fig. Such a warm, delicious scent!! :D

This is such a lovely polish! It is a pink-red, with what seems to be golden shimmer in it. Because the shimmer is coated in the polish, it doesn't look quite gold on the nail, but in the photos you should be able to see what I mean. :)

Application was fantastic! This one is a bit runny, but if you make sure not to have too much polish on your brush it goes exactly where you want it to! It took 2-3 coats, and is pretty nicely pigmented. It's a bit difficult when saying how many coats, as everyone applies polish differently.

I now have 3 polishes from the Anchor's Away collection, and that makes me very happy! :D

Look at those fuzzies on my nails! Sheesh! Those buggers just pop out of nowhere!!

Because I wanted to do something a little fun with this polish, I decided to put some sparkle on it. It is a beautiful multi-size glitter polish with a light blue tinted base by Sally Girl. Unfortunately the mini Sally Girl polishes (which are absolutely great btw!!) don't have names on them, so I took a bottle shot for you to show you what I used.

Oooh look at that little sparkle that is trying to jump off the end of the nail! Don't do it! It's not worth it!!!

Anyhoo, have a wonderful Monday and I hope that your week is wonderful!! ^-^
