There's always a massive hype around nail polish collections from China Glaze, Opi and Essie, normally there may be a colour which I want, however 9/10 I never bother with collections. However earier this year when China Glaze released their Anchors Away collection, each and every colour appealed to me. However acting like Captain Sensible I decided to buy one colour- which could be worn for work/nights out.

This reminds me of a more purple version of Barry M's Dusky Mauve or Models Own Purple Grey. However as I don't normally wear purple polishes I'm still in two minds over this. I think this will definately be a grower on me.


Like all China Glaze polishes one coat is more than enough to get even coverage, however in the photos above I used two. With my CG Naughty and Nice polish the colour lasts a good 3-4 days without chipping, this however lasted an entire 2 hours when this happened...

Epic fail

In totally this polished lasted about 6 hours as it constantly just chipped away. Very disapointing for a China Glaze polish. Luckily I got mine half price in my local Sally's for £2.99. I'll get JEM to do a dupe post for you, however I wouldn't recommend buying this polish :(
