China Glaze (Anchors Away Collection): First Mate paired with Color Club: Covered in Diamonds

Happy Wednesday to my lovely readers! I hope you're all having a great week. Today I have two colors to share with you. One is from China Glaze's Anchors Away release and one is from Color Club's Untamed Luxury Collection. Enjoy!!

This is First Mate it's a royal blue creme. The color is beautiful but unfortunately the formula is not.  I am having some issues with the cremes in this collection being unreasonably thick. I had the same problem with the coveted Below Deck from this collection as well.  I found this difficult to work with. It's thick and goopy.

If you can get over the formula the color is gorgeous. It's rich and opaque and has  a nice high shine finish.

To sort of  jazz it up a bit I put Color Club's Covered in Diamonds on top. I think the colors go really wonderfully together. The flakies in this polish are so pretty against the blue, it looked like fish scales or something.

I actutally had the same issues with this color as well.  The formula is just so thick! It's goopy and difficult to apply. The effect is totally worth it though.  You're just left with big layers of polish at the end though. 

So do you have either of these? Do you like them? Worth the hassle or do you like their formulations?
