China Glaze Ahoy

*** My Dreamy Cremes 1,000 Follower Giveaway ends this Sunday.  Enter here for a chance to win 5 beautiful summer cremes! ***


For my birthday this year, I was sent this lovely China Glaze gem from my Twinsie Anna from Going to the Showing.  Anna is such a sweetheart (love ya, girly!) and when I opened the package and saw Ahoy, I think I actually jumped for joy.  Last summer when Ahoy debuted in the Anchors Away Summer Collection, I debated between getting this or Strawberry Fields.  While a larger question would be why I didn't get both (what was I thinking??), in the end I picked up Strawberry Fields since it was on my wish list longer.

Thus, when I saw the flakie raspberry creme I was super psyched.  There's something about a warm-toned medium fuchsia with golden flakie shimmer that really makes my heart skip a beat.  I mean, let's just look at this polish, it's simply gorgeous in a really understated way.  The formula was perfect as well and only needed two coats for opacity.  This mani, however, was three coats because before I photographed this, I banged my nail into a wall and got a white paint mark that I couldn't wash off so I applied another thin coat to cover it.



The combination of this hot color dark pink and golden flakies is just magnificent.  And now that I have both Strawberry Fields and Ahoy, I feel like I have a matching set of fantabulous pink flakie polishes!  Any girl with a penchant for pink should definitely pick these up.


And thank you Anna for killing a year-long lemming!

  14. Ooh it's really nice! Fuschia is so underrated,  I just got the OPI Nice Stems minis from a swap buddy yesterday and there's a gorgeous shimmery fuschia in it too, reminds me a little of Ahoy :)x

  16. I agree!  It was one of those drive by colors.  The whole collection was great, but I think Sea Spray was the one that got all the attention.
