China Glaze Below Deck from the Anchors Away Collection Spring 2011

I’m starting to ease into some of the spring nail polishes now.  China Glaze’s Below Deck is from the Anchors Away collection-it’s a pretty, mauvy purple-taupe-grey.  It’s really a mix of all of those colors.  I liked it so much that I wore it for four days!  I did add some sparkly topcoat at the end to keep it going.

This color applied really well.  I like the China Glaze brush better than some of the brushes in more expensive polish-it’s just wide enough and stiff enough that I find it to be very easy to control.  This took just two easy coats to be fully opaque.  And it’s such a nice, soft color–it has more pink than the taupey-purple colors from last fall.   My pictures didn’t show it quite as pink as it looks in real life.

After a few days, I did add CND Gold Shimmer.  This combination reminded me a tiny bit of Dior’s Aztec Chocolate (only lighter), since the gold shimmer made the brown and purple in Below Deck seem like a really cool-toned brown.

This polish is supposed to be the closest China Glaze could come to a re-creation of a popular older shade, Channelesque.  I don’t have that one to compare, but Below Deck is a nice, easy to find option if you were a Channelesque fan.
