Ahoy got poisoned!
Hello everybody! How are you doing? Well, I have yet again my forbbiden second cup of coffee right now, even though it's kinda late. But I just really felt like having a cup of coffee, since I love the taste. It's been a long day, but nothing horrible. I see some love for Illamasqua week, so I think I'll do it next week, if I'll manage with the time, k? :)
Right now I have the third of my Anchors Away haul, and i fear it's going to be the last one for a while. We split orders with Tevta and planned to get some more AA with the Crackles, and now the Crackles are sold out, so I'm not sure when will I get Sea Spray and Life Preserver. Even better, I think, I'll show them to you after all the hype around AA will be gone. ;)
I must admit the title is quite correct, since I did posion this beautiful colour with failed scotch tape art. :/ I don't like the result of it one bit, although I like the colour combination. Ahoy by China Glaze and Poison me, Poison you by Catrice.
Yeah, as you can see, the scotch tape design didn't turn out as I planned. But it's still inspired, as always, by Erika from Chloe's Nails. Other than that, I must tell you people, Ahoy is a chameleon! Seriously, on most pictures on blogsphere it seems just a strong pink colour (my pics included), but the intensity of pink changes depending on the light. Right now on my nails it's a gorgeous warm red colour (of course with a strong pink undertone) with red and goldish sprecks of micro glitter showing and turning this beauty into a stunning shade.
Ahoy! was my risk in the Anchors Away. I wasn't sure if it won't be too pink for me, but I really liked it on the swatches, so I gave it a go. Good thing that I did, since it's exactly, and I mean really exactly what I need in this shitty wheater. I'm absolutely in love with it. Tiny shimmer or glitter (I can never tell where to put these tiny particles) gives it a glass-flecked look and all the colours it gains in different lights are really awesome.
Application was a bliss, no trouble whatsoever. With two coats I still had VNL so I added the thrid one, and it was magic, baby!
As you all know, Ahoy! is a part of Anchors Away China Glaze Spring 2011 Collection, I just write it down because that's how i represent most of the polish. As I already have 3 colours and two on the way and am thinking about another one from this collection, I must say i'm really loving this collection.
Poison me, posion you is another one from Catrice's arsenal I haven't wore for a millenia, and if I'm not mistaken it's one of the colours they're discontinuing, so if you like it, now it's a good time to buy it.
What do you think about Ahoy!? Do you get all the hype around it or do you have other favourites in the collection?
Thank you for reading!
