Tardy to the party, but apparently this week was Fleet Week in NYC, so what better way to cap off a week of NOTDs than with this perfect Anchors Away red jelly-creme? :)
Also, one clunker of a summer popcorn movie came out last Friday ... you may be familiar with it. I'm talking about
Anyway, this color also works out because I was craving a red creme something awful while I was in the motherland.
Two coats with SV.
Just a word of warning: This red leans a little warm, so if stay away from it if you and warmer reds are incompatible!
Sure, this may not be the most original color, but I don't know how you do a nautical collection without a bright red creme! Otherwise, I cannot think of a single bad thing to say about this polish. It's opaque at one coat, though two makes for utter perfection. It's also got a delicious jelly-creme texture, and dries quickly to a glossy shine. I needed another red creme like a bullet to the brain but I HAD to have this!
Hey Sailor was part of China Glaze's Anchors Away collection from Spring 2011. I bought my bottle from TransDesign/nailsupplies.us last year, but you can find this easily at any retailer that sells China Glaze. This is also in the core ChG display at Sally.
Any thoughts on bright red cremes, or any favorite ones for summer? What about the Anchors Away collection? Are there any sailors in your life, fictional or non? (He is and always will be my favorite.) Any plans to see "Battleship"? Are you as worried about Taylor Kitsch's movie career as I am?
No pictures of sailors, but here's the last batch of cell phone pictures from the motherland trip. I call this edition the "yummy" one. I hope you enjoyed looking at these shots (thank you!) as much as I enjoyed sharing them.
