For Audrey: China Glaze's Hepburn-Honoring Polish

For Audrey: China Glaze's Hepburn-Honoring Polish

It's been 46 years since Audrey Hepburn enchanted audiences in Breakfast at Tiffany's, but her influence as Holly Golightly is still strong. Case in point: China Glaze's new "For Audrey" nail polish ($6.50), which bears a striking resemblance to Tiffany Blue. I say "striking resemblance" because Tiffany & Co. holds a trademark to the shade you see on its bags and boxes; although other colors come close, nobody else has official dibs on that particular hue.

Like Melanie at Blogdorf Goodman, I received a sample to try out. I usually don't go for wacky colors on my nails, but I'm surprised by how much I like this turquoise—and not just because I spent my late teen years shamelessly mimicing Audrey's style. For the detailed review and a Breakfast-inspired photo,

It turns out the polish is a lot more wearable than I anticipated. Sure, it's not something I'd recommend for a job interview, but on short nails it's a fun flash of blue. I think it would be overkill to wear this on long nails unless you're the kind of woman who can pull off high-drama, attention-getting looks. Next time I'll probably wear it on my toes, which a lot of brides might want to do for the "something blue" of their weddings!

This was the first time I used China Glaze lacquer, and I was very pleased with the application. I'm too clumsy to use long, thin brushes, so China Glaze's short, fat one was a breeze to handle. And not to get too Mr. Wizard on you, but the formula has just the right amount of viscosity: It wasn't so runny that it dripped into my cuticles, but it wasn't so thick that it glopped up, either. Easy application means one happy Bella. I had good color coverage with one coat, but I recommend two to get a more even and consistent hue. For Audrey is shipping now, so it should be in nail boutiques any week now. When I find an online retailer that hasn't sold out, I'll let you know.

Here's a picture of me about to pet a very squirmy "Cat," just before we hopped onto the fire escape to croon a little "Moon River." What do you think?
