China Glaze Life Preserver

Along with Grape Pop, which I showed yesterday, China Glaze also sent me the orange creme from their Anchors Away collection, Life Preserver. Just like Grape Pop, Life Preserver is a diva and refuses to photograph accurately, at least in the indoor lighting the weather has forced me to use. It's a dusty but vibrant, glossy orange creme, and while I would probably use three coats for a full manicure due to the slight VNL that I had with the two coats (without top coat) shown, two coats would also suffice.

*sigh* Life Preserver is not that red. I think my camera is just mad at China Glaze for being so awesome. To get an idea of the actual color, look at these pictures, and then picture something between those swatches and mine. It's quite a unique orange, and I definitely don't have anything close to it in my stash. I'll have to bring it back out when the storms stop (though it doesn't look like that will be anytime in the near future) and take (hopefully) more accurate pictures.

I received this product from the manufacturer for review; however, that will never affect what I say about the product. For more information, see my disclosure policy.


  1. Gah I hate it when colours don't photograph properly. I have the same problem at times and it is not always easy to fix even in photoshop.
    Still Life Preserver is a lovely colour :)

  2. Thank you! I don't even have Photoshop, so I have to rely on my camera.
