Blues and blue-leaning greens are my nail polish weakness. Unless it’s an exact dupe for something I already own, I have a hard time turning one down. And I have been wearing them A LOT lately.
Nails Inc Baker Street is a bright cobalt blue that you need in your life. End of story. The formula is excellent – two easily applied coats and you’re done. My photo below isn’t really getting the vibrancy across, so check it out in person if you can.
Illamasqua Venous is a gorgeous, dusty blue-green. As with all of the other Illamasqua polishes I’ve tried, the formula is perfect. Though a touch more blue, it’s similar to Misa Dirty, Sexy, Money.
The last three polishes are from the Maybelline Color Show Summer 2013 collection… a collection that prominently features blue and green. As with the rest of the Color Show polishes, the formula on these is pretty good. For me, they applied smoothly, with complete coverage in two coats.
First up is Midnight Swim, which is (as one might expect) a midnight blue. It dried down darker than the color in the bottle.
Next up is Azure Seas, and like Midnight Swim, the name is indicative of the color. I thought it would be similar to China Glaze Shower Together or Aqua Baby, but Azure Seas is bluer than both of them.
Finally, here’s Urban Utopia. I had a hard time accurately photographing this color – it’s pulling a bit blue, but in person it’s definitely more green. I attempted to color correct, but it’s still not quite there. Think #2db295.
Are there any colors you’ve been gravitating toward lately?
