China Glaze Anchors Away Collection - Sand and Sea Swatches

June 6, 2011

 There are two sets in the China Glaze Anchors Away Collection and I ended up buying the Sand and Sea set with more neutral colors. I actually enjoy all the polishes that are included in this set and I love the whole "nautically-inspired" theme. Here are my swatches:

White Cap
 This is described as a whimsical and sparkling multi-dimensional white. It's definitely on the sheer side, but I love that I can layer it on top of another color for some shimmer. 

Pelican Gray
 A cool toned grey crème with high shine. This one seemed to have a thicker formula than the rest and only took 2 coats, very easy to work with. I wore this color for a week long with no chips. One of my favorites from this set.

Sea Spray
 Calming pale blue crème is how this polish is described. Only took 2 coats as well, and very opaque. I wasn't too sure about this color, but after putting it on, I love it. 

Below Deck
 Ahh yes, my number one favorite of them all. This is a flirty mix of taupe and violet, very pretty polish indeed. I actually swatched this one last so I could keep it on. I will be wearing this one a lot for sure. 2 coats here was enough and the formula was also a bit thick.

Sunset Sail
 Delightful peachy pink high shine crème, Sunset Sail is going to be amazing to wear when Spring really does get here. I love that it's more peach, and the pink is hardly there. So gorgeous and this took 3 coats.

 Knotty is described as Micro-particle beige shimmer. This was only one coat, so you can see the shimmer. Another one like White Cap to layer on the other polishes. I will do a NOTD with this layered on top of another polish.

 Hope you enjoyed these swatches!
