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

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

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).
