Hey everyone! Summer is rapidly coming to a close, but it's not over yet! Admittedly I've been dipping into the fall shades lately, so to celebrate the fact that it's still summer I have China Glaze Blue Iguana for you. Blue Iguana is an ocean blue translucent/jelly base packed with royal blue and purple glass flecks. It was released as part of China Glaze's summer 2011 collection called "Island Escape."
4 coats Blue Iguana+Nubar Top Coat, shade
I said this was a jelly base, but it isn't "squishy" like most jelly polishes. The polish applies in very thin coats. As a result you need 4 coats to get rid of most VNL (visible nail line). Most polishes are a pain to apply any more than 3 coats of, but this is very easy to apply. Each coat dries by the time you've covered your other hand. All of the polishes the collection are 3 Free and capture summer perfectly. I really like this color. I was worried about the color against my skin tone, but I think the purple flecks make it look nice. It's definitely a keeper.
