China Glaze Ahoy! is a magenta jelly with iridescent gold shimmer. It's absolutely gorgeous and application was a breeze. It does remind me a lot of ChG Strawberry Fields, but it is darker. This is a stunning shade and a must have in my opinion.

'Ahoy!' is a gorgeous raspberry red with golden shimmer that leans towards a deep magenta shade. It has a jelly-ish formula that required two coats for a nice even finish and lasted around 4 days before I started to get chipping (no top coat). Great shade for Summer!

My first nail polish review ever! I am writing this because I am really in love with the colour. Fun and fresh yet 'classy,' and great drying and staying power. Dries evenly and 2 coats is enough.
Have been really disappointed by other brands, including some OPI formulas and Essie as they are streaky and slow drying, but this one is fab!

Ahoy is one of my favorite polishes! I love the raspberry base with the glass-flecked shimmer. Just stunning. This was one of the better colors from the Anchors Away collection. This is a solid two-coater for me and wears very well, only tip wear after 5 or so days.

I have had this color all summer but just now cracked it open. Why? Because I thought is was just another bright pink. I was so wrong. I am so in love with this raspberry pink polish with tiny gold, pink and blue flecks.The blue flecks are there you just have to look real close. It's so pretty and the application was perfect. Very easy to work with and opaque in two coats. Just a gorgeous color that gets a lot of attention!

I love this color so much! It's just pink enough to be considered "professional" for work, but a touch of magenta in there to keep it very young and frisky. On top of that, the microglitter really keeps it alive, and very pretty even in indoor lighting. This is important for me as I'm a night nurse, so it's nice to wear at work. Also, it wears hard, didn't start chipping until the 3rd night after dealing with lots and lots of vial opening, plus endless handwashing.

The only reason why I wouldn't buy the same product again is probably because I always love trying something new. Other than that - the polish is just great and I do hear compliments about my nails. This nail polish was the only one I could wear for a really long time and even though it just started to chip, I work with food, cutlery, basically all the nail-polish-not-friendly stuff, so I do believe, if it wasn't for what I have to do, it would stay for much longer. I love the colour - depending on how many layers you apply you can either get lighter or darker raspberry colour, both very pretty. Plus, very easy to apply

I really like this color! It's a beautiful raspberry with gorgeous shimmer (not chunky glitter, but that pretty shimmer that catches the light just right). Perfect for spring/summer! Great alternative to pinks and reds and leaves your nails bright and fun without anything overboard.
This color wears really well too... I use OPI Base Coat, two or three coats of Ahoy, and Seche Vita top coat and it lasts about a week with just some minor tip wear.
Would buy again if I ever run out but I have never run out of a nail polish to this day haha

This is one of my favorite colors. A deep raspberry with pretty goldish glass-flecks. Summery and simple. 2 coats and topcoat will give you a long lasting, sparkly mani.

This and Sea Spray have been my go-to polishes for 3 months now. This color is just beautiful: bright raspberry with gold glass-flecked shimmer. Takes 3 coats for opacity. I cannot stop staring at my nails, the glass fleck formula is amazing! I will repurchase if I can find this polish again.

China Glaze's Ahoy is a medium fuschia/raspberry polish with a pink and gold microglitter glass-fleck finish (similar to Raspberry Festival). While there is gold in this, I would consider this a cool-tone dark pink. Under ambient indoor lighting the microglitter appears more pink than gold but under sunlight the gold glass-fleck pops out and gives the polish a slightly warmer/redder tone (but still pink). The application was a breeze with total opacity at two coats. The formula has gotten better IMO and is not as gloopy as some China Glaze collections used to be. The drying time has improved as well. With Seche Vite over the top my mani was rock hard in 20 minutes. Wear time was very good at five days with no chips or crazing. Although this is a pretty color on other people, it looks very garish on me. I'm not sure if it's the tone of fuschia or what but I wouldn't buy it again.

I am generally not into pinks but I saw the shimmer in this and had to have it. I personally do not like it on my nails alone but with a crackle/shatter it's awesome. This lasted on my nails like other china glaze polishes. I had a full weeks wear. If I ran out I would buy it again but since I rarely wear pinks I doubt I'll ever finish the bottle.

Ahoy! is the big sister of China Glaze Strawberry Fields. Its a bit darker pink glass-fleck finish polish with gold flakes. The flakes sometimes get the pink base on them, so some appear pink and others gold... its really beautiful. It looks so much prettier on my nails than I ever anticipated it would
