Winter 2008: China Glaze Bahama Blues
Escape this winter with China Glaze and the Bahama Blues collection. Sure, it's not the white sand or the crystal clear waters, but maybe the closest thing I'll get to the Caribbean. Introducing six new shades sure to please any blues.
First off, I love this collection and it's probably not the reason your thinking. If there's a collection I can relate to, this would totally be it. Back in December of 2006, Scott (my hubbie) and I were married on the beach in the Bahamas. The setting was absolutely amazing along with the town decked our in christmas lights and decor.
Winter (starting in Dec) is a great time to visit the Caribbean. The hurricane season is just ending and the prices are fairly reasonable. I highly recommend a visit in the winter.
Let's gettie on to the good stuff.
Bahaman Escape, a light baby blue cream that applied very smooth within two coats. Although, I dreaded applying this because the formula was rather thick it turned out to be fairly easy.
Caribbean Blue, a baby blue glitter polish that's darker than your average baby blue shade. This was definitely an interesting and different color. However, it just didn't flow with my skintone for some reason. I think this will be a hard color pull off.
Blue Paradise, a medium blue with shimmer that applied rather streaky with any number of coats. This was the only shade I had any true problems with.
Don't Blue Island Iced Tea sound like a yummy cocktail drink? A blingtastic light blue filled with matching glitter. Two coats will give you good coverage. I used three in my swatches just to see how blinged out this baby could get. My thrid favorite.
These next two shades looked very simliar in the bottle but are different.
Bermuda Breakaway, a navy purple creme that applied smooth in two coats that was my favorite. The violet base makes this blue stunning espically on your pedi's.
Calypso Blue, a lighter navy blue creme that applied smooth in two applications.. This isn't your typically deep navy blue color. I'd say there's just a splash of violet that makes this "not so blue" and fab.
Despite the actual color on my nail, the bottles looked completely alike but are very different. Both gorgeous colors.
