Nail Polish of the Day: Claires Ocean Breeze

Claries Ocean Breeze Nail Polish Swatch

Pastel purple blue nail polish

Happy Tuesday! I'm feeling much better from this dreaded cold I've had the last several days. Today I wanted to show you guys a cool shade from Claires 3 in 1 mixables called Ocean Breeze.

Clarie's mixables are three different nail colors in one bottle that you don't mix up. But, in this case there's actually four different colors. Ocean Breeze is a combination of four pastel colors of blue, pink, purple and green. The end result is a lilac purple with pink undertones that's really pretty.

The hardest part these babies: you can't mix or shake these. I know, it's really hard because it's just habit to shake or roll a bottle.

Neon Pink Polka Dot nail art 

And here's some polka dot nail art using another Claire's mixables in Hawaii. Described as a bright hot pink color.

Claire's mixables are available in several different colors and retails for $5.00/ea at Claire's Boutiques. Have a great day!

That is pretty neat. Very cute idea for a polish. I am amazed it is not a mess of color.

Hi blessedbeauty, Absolutely not, anyone can buy them! Some beauty places require a license to purchase, but most don't depending where you look. :) I picked mine up at Sally's Beauty Store. If you don't have a Sally's near you, try online or ebay. Their pretty reasonably priced! you'll love it

I love this! How do you get the different colors to come out? For example, if I want the very bottom layer.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
