Ahhhhh…. the final three of the China Glaze Anchors Away Collection. Of course, I’m late in swatching these, but I won them a little later than their release from Kayla Shevonne’s 500 Follower Giveaway. I’ve already swatched the other polishes, so I’ll link them here. I recommend you right click and open a new window for the link, or you’ll be navigated away from this page.
Today I’m going to share with you Below Deck, Lighthouse, and Sunset Sail.
Below Deck is a neutral greyed out mauve cream. The polish coated well, but was a bit runny. I used 2 coats for the swatch pic.
I thought Lighthouse was really beautiful. It’s a vibrant yellow shimmer and really sparkles in the light. I used 3 coats for the swatch photo and still had visible nail line. If VNL bothers you definitely use this as a layering polish.
Sunset Sail is a work safe peach with little micro-shimmers. This was beyond a pain in the butt to apply. I don’t know if I got a bad bottle, but it was running all over the place. I used 3 coats for the swatch photo, basically because I was trying to even it out.
Overall, I liked Lighthouse, but the other two were meh. Runny and, to be blunt, just not up to par with what I expect from China Glaze.
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).
