The Perfect Colour [Photo Heavy]

Different colours ignite different feelings in different people.

Pantone PMS 1837 strikes joy into the heart of girls everywhere.

"Tiffany Blue" is the perfect shade of blue, similar to the blue of a robins egg, it symbolises so much more.

Breakfast At Tiffany's is my favourite book [and one of my favourite films] - "That's right. I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!"

So, for the past 3 months I have been on a mission to find THE perfect shade of Tiffany Blue for my nails.

There were 2 polishes that I wanted to obtain for this purpose
Chanel in "Nouvelle Vague"
and Nfu Oh in "#394"
However, due to high cost & custom issues I was unable to obtain them.

China Glaze "For Audrey" 
RRP at $11.95 from here

Sportsgirl Nail It in "Blue Lagoon"
This was purchased on sale for $4.95 from Sportsgirl

Essie in "Mint Candy Apple"
RRP $18.95 from here

L'Oreal in "Waters Edge"
I actually bought this on eBay for $15.01
Usually I stay far away from purchasing cosmetics/nail colours on eBay due to high fake risk
But I wanted this colour and couldn't find it anywhere else.

BYS in "Sky's The Limit"
RRP $3.95 from here

Miss Frou Frou in "Aqua"
RRP $24.95 from here

OPI in "What's With The Cattitude?"
RRP for around $19.95 from Myer


Orly in "Gumdrop"
RRP $7.95 from here

There are many other brands and colours that dupe this beautiful blue. However, after researching I decided to stop at 9 polishes. Only 8 are pictured as OPI in "Sea Ya Later, Sailor" is not an opaque colour, it is a glitter polish.

All of these polishes were purchased, or gifted to me, none were sent for review purposes. All were photographed in natural light, with 2 colour coats and without a top coat.


  1. I love China Glaze 'For Audrey'
    Such a pretty colour.

    I need to get Gumdrop ASAP though.

  2. Definitely get Gumdrop.
    I prefer the formula to be honest.

    Although, Miss Frou Frou is DEVINE!
    Not quite Tiffany Blue but stunning.
    I need more of their polishes STAT

  3. I'm such a sucker for a pretty mint polish, I have the Essie one which I adore, might have to get the Orly one too! ;)

  4. I love the colour of the Essie but I am not an Essie fan. Seems to chip way to easily in my experience
