China Glaze's "Anchors Away" Swatches

Image Source
As I mentioned I purchased some nail polishes from China Glaze's "Anchors Away" collection. I really love China Glaze. They're great quality nail polishes for under $3. Sorry about the messy paint job, I was excited to swatch them! All swatched with two coats. Here we go:
"Life Preserver" is a gorgeous burnt orange shade. I didn't think I'd love this color this much!
"Below Deck" is a gray subdued lavender color. This is a great muted purple which is on trend for 2011.
"Sunset Sail" is a great nude with a shimmer in it. I did use two coats but I went really heavy on them because I wanted to show the color. I would probably make it a lighter shade. I like this nude but definitely want to find a more matte color.
"Hey Sailor" is a bright red color with some orange undertones (it didn't photograph quite the same). Great for a Valentine's Day manicure!
"Sea Spray" is an iridescent robin's egg blue. It is a beautiful color. It looks similar to a color I picked out to paint my walls (never did btw) so definitely fits in my liking. However, the turquoise color I'm looking for is more on the green side and brighter (much BRIGHTER). I was kind of contemplating OPI for Sephora's "Read My Palm"... any good?

And there you have it! Which color do you like?
