Happy weekend, polishheads! I’ll keep this post short because I know you guys have seen the Anchors Away swatches more than you want to and are sick of them (I know I am. I was let down from the collection after all the hype.) Lighthouse is only polish that I thought was actually pretty unique from this collection that I felt compelled to purchase.
Even though I was drawn to this polish, I wasn’t sure I was going to love it. As you have noticed, it’s very golden. And I’m not a yellow lover so I wasn’t sold at first. Lighthouse is pretty golden, but also quiet bright on the yellow side so you’re not going to mistake for a gold. It’s saturated and fun. And it’s an almost sheer base, so it’s light on the nail. The shimmer is awesome and allows for this polish to really glow…like a lighthouse. I get you, China Glaze.
As mentioned, this yellow polish is saturated and bright enough, even though it’s a sheer polish, to look like you have polish on your nail. Not like your nails look dingy and weird. The formula on this polish was pretty runny. I wasn’t quiet able to get the hang of it. But I was suggest applying a thick first coat to have a strong base to build on. I used three coats and have no complaints. I think somehow this polish will be flattering on almost anyone. I think it’s super cool and I completely love it. It’s weekend and summer appropriate for sure.
Where to Buy: Sally’s / Ulta / Online Etailers (I got this from Transdesign for $3!) / $ 6ish
