Sexy vintage: China Glaze Drinkin' My Blues Away

Hello lacquered lovelies! I hope you're all having a good week so far. Mine's been okay, did some visiting with my aunt over the weekend, it was lovely to see her :)

Before I get into today's post, I just wanted to thank you all for being so awesome and sweet about the videos I posted last week. A couple of people have asked for more, one on using cuticle removers (I am obsessed), one on how I shape my nails and a basic manicure tutorial. Right now I'm really not happy with the length or shape of my nails, I recently filed them all down and got a little crazy on a couple of nails. But once they're at a length I feel more comfortable with I will definitely get working on those!

So, today's polish is a sexy little thing. You guys know I love my older polishes and this is one that I've been lemming for ages! I was lucky enough to get it from Jasmine's blog sale a while back and I swatched it to include in a vintage week, which won't really be a week, but the next few posts will be some of my favourite HTFs that I've been lucky enough to get my paws on.

Drinkin' My Blues Away is a chemical-filled little thing and it's beautiful. I know a lot of people will be asking if it's similar to Blue Iguana - have no fear, I shall have a comparison post up soon. Basically no, it's not. To the average person I imagine they look the same, but to us? Don't worry, friends. You'll see the differences. ;)

This was three coats. It's a bit sheer but definitely buildable. No topcoat :)

Balkdhjsg;lasdhg;jsd it's so prettyyyyyy! What do you lovelies think? What's your favourite old school polish?
