China Glaze - Sea Spray


Hi Goddesses

I do love being proved wrong, especially about a polish.

Sea Spray, bless her little socks, was never destined for a massive role in my collection.  I bought her purely because she was a nice shade of pale blue, and I knew I would need this sort of colour for any blue gradients or splatters that I did.  I also assumed she was a summer only colour.

Roll forward a few months, and I feel like this is ALL I have been wearing for the last couple of weeks, because Sea Spray is the perfect winter colour – cool, frosty and icy – and has therefore been the background of choice in many of my Christmas manis.

It is worth allowing her a moment in the spotlight though, because she is a very pretty colour.  For some reason she makes me think of gulls and bird’s eggs – she is a lovely lush greyish pale blue, and therefore not at all sickly or clichéd.

This greyishness also gives her a depth that sets her apart from her peers.  It gives her a silkiness, a sereneness and a smoothness that is hard to beat.

I know a lot of you have this beauty already, so I am not blogging her to draw your attention to something you may have overlooked, but I AM blogging her as a polish *I* overlooked, and who turned out to be very much more than I thought she was.

Enjoy J  xx


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
