Breakfast at Tiffany's.

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls." ~Joseph Campbell

Today I've decided to feature my go to color; my favorite in the entire world (at the moment); For Audrey by China Glaze! For Audrey is absolutely my go to color. When I have zero inspiration for what color I want to wear that day, its always this one. I wear it on my toes constantly! I must give credit where credit is due, however, and say that if Summer over at Groupie Glam, one of my dear dear friends, hadn't told me to look at swatches of it... I NEVER would've purchased it. I just never would've thought it was appealing... But, how clever of CG to also make For Audrey into a Crackle and call it Crushed Candy. But, crushed candy, has been in my crackle/shatter collection for awhile, and I've yet to use it.. maybe thats my next mission...

SEE! they are exactly the same! Was I the only one that didn't notice this until I had both For Audrey and Crushed Candy in my stash?

Here it is all by itself,... sigh. I just absolutely love this color. Maybe because I have fancy dreams of maybe getting a Tiffany ring from my prince charming someday?!

and this, my friends, is one of my absolute favorite ways to wear this polish... with OPI Silver Shatter on top! I came up with this idea one day when I was staring down at my stash of polish and knew I wanted to wear For Audrey but wanted to spice it up a bit... the affect was amazing and I got SEVERAL compliments on this mani. I actually wore it for days.



With flash. Absolutely beautiful to me! So basically, this was just base coat of Gelous, 2 coats of For Audrey, one coat of OPI Silver Shatter, and no top coat. 

So,... what do you think? Hit or Miss?

I haven't met a person who didn't like this polish honestly. My sister in law always borrows and goes through my nail polishes when I'm home on break from school so when I finally came across this lovely polish. I wore it once before it went missing from my stash. She took and and wouldn't give it back! I had to buy another bottle. I don't mind too much, mine's fresher than her's. I got it from a swap on makeup alley.

Also you'd be surprised how good shatter looks over plain manis. I use it to stretch a mani an extra day or two. No one notices that it's time to change polish cause it covers the chips!
