I mostly live in black. Black clothes, black shoes, black purses, and even black hair– though the latter wasn’t up to me, it fits perfectly. My nails is the one department where I like to add a little bit more color– rarely, but it happens. Like when you fall in love with 3 shades of blue nail polish that you just can’t seem to put down.
3 Shades of Blue Nail Polish
GlitterDaze Sky’s the Limit* is the most beautiful pastel blue creme. I love the formula of these cremes because they’re opaque in one coat for me, and they don’t apply patchy or streaky. I turn to this when I need my nails to be done quickly. One coat of this plus a matte top coat means your nails will be dry in no time!
Essie Find Me An Oasis is a lighter and much paler blue shade– call it a non-white white shade–that also has a creme finish. I’m an outfit repeater, but rarely a [consecutive] nail polish repeater with an exception to this nail color. It didn’t leave my nails for probably about a month after I got it.
Essie Bikini So Teeny is another creme finish polish (sensing a theme are we?) that is a cult favorite. When I look at this shade, the Pantone 2016 Serenity shade pops into my mind. It’s not bright or dark, but it’s not super muted, which is why I love it.
The formula of Essie nail polishes aren’t my favorite. They tend to be pretty streaky and watery so I usually have to put at least 2 coats to get them more opaque. But, more often than not I end up having to put on 3 coats and then sometimes things can get goopy. To be honest, it’s a love/hate relationship. I love so many Essie colors, but really dislike their formula. But, I continue to purchase them anyway because I love their shades so much.
