Throwback Thursday: China Glaze Sea Spray

Today, I have oldie for you that turned into an unexpected favorite. I bought China Glaze Sea Spray when it came out in the Anchors Away spring 2013 collection. This was not a polish I ever would typically wear, and was really skeptical about wearing it. I remember putting it on, and not really feeling it.

When I went out I got lots compliments on this nail color. A few compliments turned me around on the color, and it became a favorite of mine. How could I not like a color I got so many compliments on?

Sea Spray
Sea Spray is a pale grey-blue with a soft silvery/blue shimmer.

Color: Sea Spray is a beautiful shade. I love how they incorporated this shimmer in this soft shade. I don't see this often especially in recent years. I know pastel-shimmers can easily go frosty or pearly, if not done right. This is a proper shimmer

Formula: Not my favorite formula here. This isn't the worst formula, but I found this one really likes to pool up in the cuticles, and applies a bit streaky and uneven. I used 3 coats here. I would of preferred an easier to apply formula.

Price: A Google search will give you many options to purchase this in the $3.50-$7.00 range.

Overall: Beautiful color. I love the soft shimmer against this pale grey-blue. I also love that this isn't a type of color and finish that I have seen much this year. I like to break out some older trends. The formula is lacking, but it's still an old favorite of mine.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Thursday!
