Claire's - Breakfast At Tiffany's

I've been trying to tap into some of the polishes I haven't tried before. I've picked up several Claire's polishes that looked intriguing, but never actually used them! I saw this minty, greenish, seafoamy color and just had to try it.

As you can see, Breakfast At Tiffany's wasn't actually as green as it appeared in the bottle. It looks like a completely different color outside the bottle and on the nail! I still love the color though, although it is different. It's much more blue on my nail.

Breakfast At Tiffany's appears to be a seagreenish color. It's difficult to tell in the photo, but my bottle had settled a bit. It didn't really separate, but the bottom has a yellowish line where I guess some of the coloring was settling. It didn't have any steel beads in it to help mix it up, so I added my own.

Application was alright with it. It wasn't difficult, but as it dried, it was a little streaky. I added a topcoat and it helped smooth it out a bit, although it still wasn't perfect under direct lighting. I still think it's worth it though, since I really like the color and I got it on sale (buy one get one 50% off), so this one was only $2.00.

Maybe my bottle was a little wonky since it was sitting in the store for a while. I really don't know how old it is, but it seems it had settled for quite a bit before I got to it. I still love the color, though I wish it was a bit greener. It's actually so blue that it looks more like Zoya Wednesday to me! Maybe this one won't stain as much as Wednesday does.

  1. We have not had a Clairs where I live for about 15 yrs now since the mall closed so I never get to pick up the cheap goodies I used to find there anymore...this is a pretty shade. Odd how green it does look in the bottle. I am surprised how I am loving all the lighter shades so early this year. I thought I would turn to my wall and winter shades after holiday that I had not worn because it was constant summer until Dec hit where I live...but I have been wearing pastels! Kind of fresh!


I would love to hear your feedback!
I read every single comment :)
