NOTD: China Glaze For Audrey

Sure it's cold outside and this shade is a tad summery, but I decided with the weekend now here I needed a brighter shade on my nails to cheer me up.

With flash

This is a gorgeous turquoise / aqua shade by China Glaze called For Audrey, as in Audrey Hepburn. The reason for the name is because the colour is the shade of the Tiffany & Co boxes as featured in the Audrey Hepburn classic film Breakfast At Tiffany's. On a side note, I adore Audrey Hepburn, don't you?



I absolutely love China Glaze polishes, which I only started weaing not too long ago. Previously there was no store near me that sold them and for some reason I wasn't that into buying them online. But now I've discovered a store in Sydney City (SA Hair, Nail & Beauty Supplies ... website's a bit useless, but has address details if you want them) which stocks a nice range of these polishes and I think they are around $7.50AUD so not a bad price at all.

So much cheaper than OPIs and Orlys which are closer to the $20AUD mark, and in terms of quality I think these are very comparable if not better.

The colour is surprisingly wearable, especially with jeans. I can also see them work perfectly with summery dresses, and look fabulous on toes with some jewelled sandals (*dreaming of summer*).

Have you tried this colour before? What do you think of it? Do you like China Glaze?

  2. SA Beauty Supplies is the one place I must visit every time i'm in the city! Only place with I can find my beloved Solar Oil and Northern Lights holo top coat :) If you like China Glaze and don't mind going for a drive, there's a place at Bankstown that sells them for $6.

  4. @ArtDonatella - thanks heaps, my cuticles in horrible dry condition though, but I'll survive!

    @Julia - oh I've heard a lot about that place in Bankstown but never had the chance to go there. City's just a little bit easier to get to so looks like I'll be visiting SA Beauty Supplies a lot more often as I'm obsessed with China Glaze now. Thanks for the heads up.

  5. @Themakeuplady - they generally last 3 days on my nails, they could probably last longer if you put top coat on every day but I'm too lazy to do that. :)

  6. I love this color!! I swear mine doesn't look that bright... mine seems to be a bit more smokey colored. Maybe it's just me, but maybe I got a dud!! haha

  7. I noticed that your color is a lot more Robin's Egg Blue than my color is.. mine is a dead ringer for the Tiffany's color, while in these pictures (probably my monitor as I'm at work) look really sky-bluish instead of aqua-bluish. Still a gorgeous color :) it's funny that it's getting colder there as it's hitting summer here in Alaska

  10. I don't have this polish, but I have BYS's Kung-fu Panda, which is apparently a dupe for it, and I loved wearing it in Summer with a little white dress ^^

  11. For Audrey is one of my favourite polishes of all time! I've been a recent convert to China Glaze too. I think they are every bit as good quality as OPI and the price is a lot more reasonable.

  13. fun colour!
    I don't have this one but I have a few other China Glazes and I think they are really nice. OPI is a bit inconsistent, some are great formula some are rubbish. China Glaze I find is a good higher mid range quality

  14. Thanks girls, I think this is becoming a favourite of mine too... it surprisingly doesn't look that scary on the nails and I can even wear it to work.

    Good to know there are so many of you out there that love it.
