China Glaze Anchors Away - Sand & Sea Collection


Hello everyone. Tonight I have China Glaze's Sand & Sea Collection to share. I'm sure you've seen most of them before, but here they are on me :)

Sunset Sail. Salmon-peach with a slight shimmer. Three coats but I could have used another.


Pelican Grey
. Very soft shade of gray with a slight shimmer. The application was quite smooth. A surprise favorite.


Knotty. Tan with a touch of micro glitter, 3 coats.


Below Deck
. Dark mauve creme, 2 coats. I never really understood the fascination with mauve colors, but now I get it. A surprise favorite.


White Cap. Light golden flecks in a thick white base. It totally changed the appearance of Below Deck.


Sea Spray
. Last but definitely not least. Dusty blue-gray with a slight shimmer. My favorite :)


I normally don't wear neutrals but I've fallen for quite a few of these colors. I usually go for the bold and dramatic but sometimes it pays to be soft. These colors are a great segue into the Summer collections. Sea Spray, Below Deck and Sunset Sail are my favorites!

And here is my Sea & Sand marble. Hope you like it!

  7. It is a neutral collection, however, its very tasteful. And I LOVE the water marble you created. It was a beautiful way to take a neutral collection and make it into something with POP!
