Tag Archives: Tiffany blue

Who doesn’t love Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s??  I kept seeing China Glaze’s aptly-named For Audrey swatched all over, and the few times I remembered to look for it, I could not find it. Thanks to some amazing Facebook fans’ advice, I finally found it at a local Sally Beauty!!

Though I have at least three or four different shades of turquoise, I simply had to have For Audrey, if for nothing else, just for Audrey.

Scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s

The colour is gorgeous. It is the perfect Tiffany blue.

I was not disappointed. As with most China Glaze lacquers, For Audrey went on beautifully, and is shown here at two coats.


I used China Glaze’s Strong Adhesion base coat under two coats of For Audrey.

The polish was gorgeous, shiny and chip-free for the few days that I wore it as a creme….

I had been inspired by another blogger’s post about Whimsical Ideas by Pam’s Kitty Glitter where she had swatched it over For Audrey, and was dying to try it! These polishes are a match made in heaven! Kitty Glitter, as you can see from my previous post here, is a very sheer Tiffany-blue, needing at least three coats for opacity.

Here it is with For Audrey as a base:

Compared to Kitty Glitter alone, no base:

Kitty Glitter and For Audrey share a gorgeous base colour, and I love the way they complement each other.  Being the crazy perfectionist that I am, though, I would like to try Kitty Glitter over a light coat of For Audrey, as I felt the base drowned out the beauty of Kitty Glitter. I kept thinking I was wearing OPI’s Piroutte My Whistle over For Audrey instead of gorgeous Kitty Glitter!!

(If you don’t believe me, check out Scrangie’s pic of Piroutte here!)

Which do you like better? Kitty Glitter with For Audrey, or Kitty Glitter alone?
Or maybe just For Audrey alone?

I recently raved about Hatched, a beautiful pale yellow glitter polish from Whimsical Ideas by Pam. I was so happy with that polish, especially since my search for a gorgeous pale yellow had been long (and mostly fruitless).

Today I have for you Kitty Glitter, another polish from Whimsical Ideas by Pam. This is a beautiful pale blue polish with medium-sized silver hex and tiny silver glitter.

There were no application issues with the glitter, but the base polish is rather sheer, not in a jelly way. I think next time I will definitely use it over a base colour for better coverage.

Here it is with a base coat, 2 coats of Kitty Glitter and a coat of China Glaze’s Fast Forward top coat – the fastest-drying, shiniest top coat.

You can see the beautiful Tiffany-blue base in these shots. I just wish this polish provided a touch more coverage. Hatched was opaque at 2 coats whereas I think Kitty Glitter needs a third coat or a base colour.
Having said this, my favourite shot of Kitty Glitter was this, where it reflects the beautiful blue sky and almost appears silver.

Kitty Glitter and Pam’s other polishes can be purchased from her Facebook page; however, sad news for my international and fellow Canadian readers: she recently changed her policies and now only ships to US addresses. I was so disappointed as I had another order planned.

 

So what do you guys think? Was this too sheer? Just right?
