China Glaze - Blue Island Iced Tea

This has been on my wishlist for such a long time and finally it's mine! I don't know why I fell so in love with Blue island, I'm not normally a fan of blue. But something about it  really spoke to me, and after I actually got it, I'm even more in love!
So this is a blue glitterish polish. The glitters are really tiny, but so packed that it makes a full base. Even though it's a glitter polish it doesn't really look like it and it isn't terrible to remove afterwards(that's a big win in my mind at least!). 

The formula was a little sloppy and sheer so I used three coats to get it opaque. Since it already dries semimatte I chose to top it with China Glaze matte magic top coat and that really made it even more wonderful! The finish looks a little weird with a shiny top coat, but with the matte it all comes together! 

I think I love it so much because it isn't entirely blue. It's a little silver too, something with the glitter makes it that way. Very nice! So happy to finally have it in my collection!
