I finally purchased China Glaze for Audrey while at a dusty with friends yesterday! I must've picked up this bottle 20 times or more and put it back down. It's gotten such over the top raves for the last 4 years I just had to try it out.
Here's a bit of the back story: "China Glaze released a Tiffany & Co.'inspired' blue creme nail polish in June 2007, and named it "For Audrey" (after Audrey Hepburn, who starred in Breakfast at Tiffany's)."
Color Description: Everyone knows what "Tiffany" blue looks like and this the quintessential essence of the robin's egg blue creme that has made Tiffany & Co.'s packaging so iconic! (Side Note: This lacquer matches with the box and is a bit bluer than the bag - check out Evonnz review here).
Similar To: For Audrey has been compared to Orly's Gumdrop, Essie's Turquoise in Caicos and even Chanel Nouveau Vague but I've noticed all are close but have slight nuances that make them all a bit unique.
This Look: Nails were filed down to keep them short for darker Fall colors (yay for the Fall!) and based with Starting Over After Artificials, two coats of For Audrey and one coat of Shine & Hold topcoat.
Price Point/Availability: Though originally this lacquer was thought to be limited edition because it was from the Tiffany inspired collection called Something Blue", it is now core to the China Glaze collection and can be found at most retailers that carry China Glaze. Sally's carries it for $6.00.
Well, it's the end of summer and I'm finally getting around to wearing this beautiful blue. I'm sure you own this already but if you don't it's worth "picking up" - lol!
Oh, and look how different this lacquer looks in various light settings! I really like this color and I think you will too... :)
