Ahoy is a beautiful berry pink from China Glaze’s Spring 2011 Anchors Away Collection. Ahoy combines the glass fleck look with gold micro-glitter. It applies very smoothly for a relatively thin polish. It is very sheer on the first coat, but with the second coat it becomes quite opaque. I could just see a hint of a visible nail line in a few of my photos at two coats even though it looks opaque in person.
I love the way this polish looks and the shimmer is beautiful. It is quick drying and one of my new go to colors for summer.
The base color for Ahoy is very similar to Do You Think I’m Tex-y? from the OPI Texas Collection (reviewed here). Since Ahoy is available where ever China Glaze is sold, and Do You Think I’m Tex-y was a part of a discontinued collection from OPI, I would highly recommend Ahoy. It is less expensive, glittery, and more opaque. No Ahoy is not a jelly polish, but I hate the visible nail line associated with Do You Think I’m Tex-y so for me it is definitely an improvement.
