Swatch: For Audrey

Today's post is a swatch post of China Glaze For Audrey. It seemed to have been popping up pretty often in recent designs so I wanted to show the color by itself. It's a gorgeous blue, very Tiffany & Co. (which was its inspiration). There's a polish from my second AE color collection that might be pretty similar though so I'm thinking of doing a comparison post to see what's what. 


The polish was part of a limited edition Something Blue China Glaze tribute to Tiffany & Co. and Audrey Hepburn. The color isn't an exact match but it was definitely close and I love turquoise so it was a great color for me. As for application, it was not so great. The formula seemed gloopy and, even though I only had 2 coats on, the polish seemed thick and wonky on my nails. The color is beautiful though so maybe that made up for the application. Drying/Hardening and wear were all adequate. I only kept the polish on for 3 days though so maybe I'm a bit quick to say wear was decent. I didn't see anything worse that tip wear on day 3. Here are some pictures of For Audrey:




It's beautiful, no? I absolutely adore the color. I don't think there are many out there like it.
