China Glaze: Anchors Away Swatches

:) Hey, everyone! Sorry, no nail art today either! I've been crazy busy with work and haven't had any time do anything but swatch. It also is a lot easier than doing full nail art when I'd just have to take it off to go to work! I promise I'll show some nail art SOON! 
But to hold you over, here are some polishes from the China Glaze Anchors Away collection!
Sea Spray, Life Preserver, Hey Sailor, Ahoy!,First Mate and White Cap.
I know, I know. This is only half of the collection. I went into my beauty supply store with the intention of buying ALL of the polishes in this collection, but they didn't have it. That didn't stop the sales associate from trying to convince me there was only 6 polishes in the collection. -_- RRRR.
I'll be going out later to see if they have the rest now, but this is all I have at the moment!

This is 2 coats of Sea Spray. This is the polish that I knew I had to have when this collection released.

This is a light greyish blue polish with a slight shimmer. 

This polish was streaky and applied a little wonky, but top coat fixed all that.

You can see a bit of the shimmer here. This polish is like Hard Candy Sky's depressed sea sick twin. But in a good way!

This is 2 coats of Life Preserver. I'm not really into oranges, so this color is pretty average to me.

It's a burnt orange creme. 

This color is not that terrible but I'm not in love with it either.

LOL my finger looks like a baby's here. At least the polish is shiny!

This is 1 coat of Hey Sailor. This polish was surprise for me. I'm not usually a red polish kind of girl, but this polish was so easy to apply and the color is really lovely.

Hey Sailor is a red Jelly-creme that pretty much applied itself.

I think it's a little darker in real life.

:)

This is 2 coats of Ahoy!. This is a must have from this collection. It's amazing and not something I would have expected at all.

This is a pink polish with gold shimmer.

 See how amazing it looks here? It's very feminine and soft.

I want to snuggle with this polish. I want to have sleep overs and giggle with this polish. It's that good.

This is 2 coats of First Mate. It's pretty but probably nothing terribly unique.

This is a navy blue creme. This color is definitely a must if you're doing a nautical collection.

This color is pretty to me, but not exciting.

At least it's shiny :).

This is 3 coats of White Cap. Ugh, this color is so lovely! Look how it almost glows!

This is a sheer white with gold shimmer. Yummy.

This color is amazing.

I love the polishes I own from this collection. Good Job, China Glaze! :) I really hope I can find the second half of this collection. 
But to hold you over, here is a haul I did last night.

Run, do not walk, to your nearest Walgreens! These are 50% off right now.




I'm seriously excited to swatch these!

  1. Lol, you're kidding, she actually tried to convince you there are only 6 colours in the collection? Ahahaha, that really made me laugh! Don't these people surf the internet? I mean, nail blogging community is *kinda* big. ;) And LOL on your description of Ahoy! :D Sleep overs and giggling, hehehe. Three out of 5 that I ordered are in this post, and they all look gorgeous, so yay! :D And I'm super jealous that you have Walgreens right now. Awesome haul.
