China Glaze PELICAN GRAY, SEA SPRAY, and FIRST MATE Swatches & Review

Part of my winning haul from Kayla Shevonne's 500 Follower Giveaway was the entire set of polishes from the China Glaze Anchors Away Collection. I was extremely excited about that part of the giveaway haul because I didn't own ANY of them! Periodically, I'll bring swatches of the shades from this collection.

For now, the first three shades I want to show you are Pelican Gray, Sea Spray, and First Mate.



Pelican Gray

Sea Spray

First Mate

Pelican Gray looks like a dull cement gray cream in the bottle, but on the nail it comes alive with a pretty white/blue shimmer and a blue tint. I used 3 coats for the swatches

Sea Spray is a beautiful light blue cream with very faint blue shimmer. I used 3 coats for this as well, but I didn't think the consistency was as nice as that of Pelican Gray.

First Mate was a shade I didn't expect to like, but I found the deep navy tone really appealing. I'm excited to wear this on my toes in the fall. It's a true cream and I only had to use 2 coats for this polish. I did find it harder to control the paint (it was runny) than with the other two shades reviewed in this post.

China Glaze Anchors Away is still available at Ulta, I've seen quite a bit of stock at mine. Depending on where you buy your China Glaze, retail can go anywhere from $4.99 - $6.99 (these are the price points that I've seen them hit).

Ooohh Sea Spray looks pretty. Like a darker, brighter version of Chanel Riva. Too bad the consistency isn't nice. I've never tried a China Glaze polish.
