China Glaze Blue Iguana

my husband and i just got home from an overnight road trip... feels so good to be home! what can i say, i'm a homebody :) we went to visit his family since we'll be moving across the country for a couple years, i'm so glad we could work in one last trip to get together with everyone!

we're checking out China Glaze Blue Iguana today... i LOVE this one! it's a tealy blue metallic duochrome with a slight pink flash. it's similar to Nicole by OPI You're S-Teal The One... but way better, especially in terms of formula. Blue Iguana is opaque in two medium-thick coats and super shimmery in the sunshine! the pink flash is pretty shy, it's more visible in the bottle than on the nail... but i think it adds to the richness of the overall color. the really dark pink on the bottle is actually just a reflection... it would be AWESOME to find a polish with a duochrome like that! if you know of one, let me know!

one coat Seche Base, two coats BI, one coat Seche Vite.




i think i've definitely found my replacement for You're S-Teal The One! Ria :)

  2. This is a gorgeous polish! Twice I've tried to order it and it was backordered when my order arrived. I guess it's not meant to be mine. =)
