Nail of the Day: It's finally mine!!! :)

There really are not enough exclamation points in the world to demonstrate to you how excited I am about this NOTD- so let me just show you....




You may remember that I mentioned in my recent gift guide and haul post that I'd bought something as swap gift for Justine - but what I failed to mention is that in return she was sending my China Glaze For Audrey!!! She offered to send it to me after a throwaway comment I made on Reddit (complaining that it's so hard to get in the UK!) and we arranged a swap :) I hope my parcel for her has arrived too!

This beautiful bottle arrived in the post this afternoon (our postman is always so late!) and I think I actually squealed when I opened the envelope! (thankfully there was no one to see me, I probably looked rather mad) I also nearly throttled my sister when she said 'but it's just a green nail polish'- she just has NO idea!

Naturally I couldn't wait to get this lovely colour on my nails (after a considerable amount of swooning at the bottle, obviously). There was a tiny part of me that thought I may have hyped it up too much for myself- after all I've wanted this polish for FOREVER- and that it might not be as wonderful as I'd imagined, but thankfully that is definitely not the case, it is beautiful as I dreamt it would be :) (No seriously, I actually dreamt about receiving it once...)

I really like the shape of the lid, but I'm a little too used to fatter and flatter brushes- this one is quite long and thin- so it took me a while to get used to it. The formula is great; it's very well pigmented and it was opaque in 2 coats, it also dried quite quickly and has a really nice glossy finish.

Enough of me wittering on about it- a picture paints a thousand words (and I have quite a few pictures...)




As you can see For Audrey is a very good colour match to the shade of Tiffany boxes :)










So beautiful :) I can't stop staring at my nails, and admiring them in different lights- it's quite distracting really!

I could not be more pleased about owning this colour, many millions of thanks to Justine, I hope you like the polish I sent to you :)
