I think seeing swatches of polishes online is an excellent way to determine whether or not you want to purchase a shade. It's pretty much my main determining factor. That being said, sometimes there are colors that you just have to see to believe. I find even the top bloggers like Scrangie admit that their camera doesn't do some of these polishes justice. I think this is the case with many of the colors in the China Glaze Island Escape collection.
I'm sure you're wondering why am I bothering posting it then? Well, because I can! :P Nah, I took pictures of these, so I don't want them sitting in a folder forever. Also, you can get an accurate idea of what this color is like, even if it doesn't reveal how truly beautiful it is. It's a bit camera shy. :)
The "under lamp" photo of this is what I feel best represents this color. This color reminds me of stained glass or what water looks like when the sun shines down on it. It's sparkles and it glows! It has almost this metallic-foil look to which gives this polish a really unique finish. This isn't you're stand run of the mill blue shimmer for sure! You need to see this to believe it. :)
