NOTD – China Glaze Eyes Like Sapphires

By on January 19, 2007
in Blue, China Glaze, Micro-glitter, NOTD

In honor of the Columbus Blue Jackets hockey team, I decided to go BLUE! I’m going to see them play the Detroit Red Wings tonight at Nationwide Arena and wanted to show my team support. Don’t tell the Blue Jackets but I’m really a Red Wings fan at heart.

So, I love the color and the silver micro-glitter but there’s something about the formula used in the We Adorn You collection that’s not working for me. I had this same problem with Soft Sienna Silks from this collection. It doesn’t apply as evenly as my other China Glaze polishes. And application, in addition to color range, is one of the things I love most about China Glaze.

Drinkin’ My Blues Away from the Spring ’06 Tequila Toes collection is very similar to this color. But, unlike Eyes Like Sapphires, it has that jelly, glaze-like consistency that I’ve come to know and love about China Glaze polishes. I also got some bubbling from this color and I don’t know if it’s my technique or the polish that caused it.

On a side note, it is freezing here in Ohio. The snow is coming down and I’m not looking forward to driving to Columbus this afternoon. In the middle of all this weather there’s me, outside with my camera taking pictures of my hands, trying to avoid getting snow on the lens. The lengths I go to for a good pic. I can only imagine what my neighbors think. I wonder if I’m the crazy neighbor lady that everyone talks about. Oh my, I hope that’s not me.

So, what’s on your nails today? Is it a keeper?

    I just got into china glaze, and I LOVE Eyes like Sapphires. I can’t seem to find it anywhere, though. Except on the shelves of the nail salons. Where can I buy it retail? Where did you get yours?

    Very gorgeous color :). I’m trying to look for the perfect medium shimmer/glass flecked blue and I’m feeling torn because there are sooo many GREAT choices! This is one of them, and I don’t want to have to get one and then later regret when I see another one I love even more (I would go ahead and get it but my folks probably wouldn’t let me because of similarness…) Thanks so much for swatching for us, even in the cold! And I know this is
