Back in December, I showed you my manicure with one of the colors from China Glaze's The Giver Collection for 2014, Release. At the time, I talked briefly about the impact that The Giver had on me. I also mentioned that I bought a second color from the collection: Intelligence, Integrity & Courage. I finally got around to wearing it all these months later!

Intelligence, Integrity & Courage is one of those colors that changes depending on the light. It might be pale blue, it might be dusty green, it might be grey. The hybrid of hues makes it so interesting and adds such depth, which is so apropos considering it's inspired by a book and movie that are about precisely that.

The formula is a creme that glides on effortlessly. One coat is enough for full coverage, but two lend a bit more opacity and richness to the color.

I'm honestly obsessed with this shade. Ever since I painted my nails, I haven't been able to stop looking at them!

Unfortunately The Giver Collection is no longer available, but if you happen to find this shade anywhere, I definitely recommend snatching it up.
