China Glaze’s Eyes Like Sapphires

This is an older China Glaze color, but I've still been able to find it - and most of the rest of the We Adorn You collection - at various etailers. It's a really gorgeous jeweltone blue!! It's also one of the older glass-fleck polishes I've seen from China Glaze (and yet, keep in mind, my beauty addiction only dates back to 2007, so it's not like I've been around forever and a day.) The base color is extremely similar to China Glaze's Frostbite, from the Ski Winter collection. I haven't swatched those two colors side by side, but I wouldn't be too surprised to find that, except for finish (pearl versus glass fleck/shimmer) they were the same color. Eyes Like Sapphires seems to wear longer and be a tiny bit more durable than Frostbite, though. And because of the glass flecks, Eyes Like Sapphires doesn't work very well as a nail stamping polish. (Although…that's a nice bit of synchronicity: one that's more durable and works best for regular manicures; one that's a smoother finish and works better in nail art. Ni-i-ice..!)
