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?

I just ordered this color online yesterday with 7 other striking color. You mentioned that they cost $6.50 ...but you can go on the website where I order my polishes and you can actually get it for $2.68 at Thought that might help.

ooh, I've been slowly transitioning myself from winter to spring and the first thing that popped into my mind was that I needed a new nail polish color for this upcoming season since the dark blues, dark reds and black only remind me of this past in my case harsh winter and I would rather not think of it every time I looked down at my nails. Bleh in short, I'm definitely going to try this color out

I ordered my polish from, but they ran out. I called the place and they said their shipment should be in stock on Monday and ready to ship. If people really, really want it, there are bottles on eBay, but some people are charging as much as $65 a bottle. Personally, I would rather wait until Monday and buy a bottle for $2.50 plus shipping!

Actually Bella got 2 samples and knows how much I love nail polish so she gave it to me to try! I give myself a manicure every Wednesday so this week, looks like I'll give Tiffani blue a whirl.

I was one of the lucky few to order it before head2toe sold out! I got my package today, and comparing my nails to my Tiffany boxes has been fun, though I do think that the polish is closer to the slightly greener tint of the little bags that Tiffany's puts the jewels inside in. Rumor is that Head2Toe will be receiving another shipment later this week, and should have it in stock soon as well.
