Shopping My Stash: China Glaze For Audrey

Hi guys, welcome to Saturday.  I'm pre-writing this post because hopefully this morning I will be on my way to the eye doctor.  Sounds totally random right?  I've been having pain in my eye since Tuesday.  At first I blamed it on my contacts but quickly realized that wasn't the case.  It's gradually gotten worse over the week and finally yesterday I was in so much pain that I just could sit around and have my eye closed.  Hopefully they can squeeze me in so I can figure out what the heck is going on, plus I'm sick of having these horrible migraines from the pain.  I never put all these things together until it's been days later and usually too late in the day to do anything about it haha!  Four or five years ago I had a dislocated jaw and waited a day to get it checked out, I just went to work and sipped things through a straw.  I didn't figure that out until later as well ;)  My husband seems to think I'm being stubborn!  I like to think of it as hoping that the problem will fix itself (it usually never does).

Update: I was able to get into the doctor's this morning.  She tested my eye and I do in fact have a scratched cornea.  The good news is that she numbed my eye and gave me a prescription for ointment to heal it.  I also found Essie Cute as a Button on clearance while picking up my prescription from Walgreens.  I can't see out of my eye so I guess I have an excuse to rest on the couch :)

Obviously I wasn't really in the mood to do some nail art but I did pick a polish from my stash of untrieds.  China Glaze For Audrey is a cult classic that many people own and it's one of those polishes that I've always wanted to pick up but ended up bypassing in the store.  One day I was in Sally's and saw this cute little mini of For Audrey for 99 cents and thought it was the perfect opportunity to give it a try :)

For Audrey is a dusty medium aqua blue cream, totally my kind of color.  I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the formula.  This polish was very opaque and smooth, a breeze to apply.  I used two easy coats with topcoat below.  Sorry for the state of my cuticles, I can't seem to get anything to work on them right now :/

Overall I am very pleased with both the quality and color of this polish and I'm very glad I was able to pick it up.  I can definitely see now why this is a cult classic polish and one that everyone talks about.  Do you own this polish and what do you think of it?


  1. Hope you feel better and your eye heals well. This is such a favorite among others and I can see why. Its a very pretty shade and something I would go for too.

  2. Hope your eye gets better! Cute As A Button is really pretty too!

  3. Please, take care! Get better soon. Looking forward to your next video.
