everyone loves a boy toy... right?

So i'm pretty sure i've never had an actual 'boy toy', but I like the title of this polish anyway ;)
I couldn't NOT feature this polish while I'm at the beach since it's name is just so appropriate, but i barely got it in as i'm leaving the beach today :(
Back to reality.

So here's China Glaze's 'Towel Boy Toy' for you!

'Towel Boy Toy' is a bright/neon (though it's not marketed as technically a neon) sky blue from the Poolside collection.... (i've actually featured several from this collection in my recent 'Live Loud!' week, seen here, here, and here.) It has a lovely, light blue shimmer to it but it's very subtle. It dries matte, of course, so I applied a coat of SV over the already 3 coats of polish- it's a bit sheer, so at least 2 coats are needed!
This polish reminds me VERY much of Zoya's 'Phoebe' prior to SV.
What do you think?

I was surprised by how much I liked this. As i've said before, i'm not usually a huge fan of bright blue on my hands, but this one was just so bright and happy and beachy that it really grew on me :)

This might be my last post for awhile because i'm getting home late tonight from the beach, have only tomorrow to finish packing up the apartment, then I start my summer class AND we're moving Monday :( So it may be a few days before I have time to blog again, but i'm going to do my best :)


  1. One of my favorite polishes everrr!

  2. I like this one a lot! It is such a beautiful blue!!

  3. So pretty! How do you not love blue polishes? Especially this bright beauty!! Maybe when you have time (I know, you're SUPER busy - good luck with classes and moving btw) maybe you could do a comparison with Phoebe so I can decide if I need to buy this polish. Pweeze?

  4. I was thinking the exact same thing: looks like Zoya Phoebe! Lovely! Just to let you know (in case you didn't already) I have to fill out a word verification every time I want to post a comment on your blog. All google blogs do this unless you turn it off. It would make it easier to comment if you turned it off :)


I enjoy reading & appreciate any and all comments! This whole blog is still a work in progress and i'm learning more about the nail/beauty world everyday... I appreciate any feedback & knowledge you provide! :)
