I wish I could say I have the Winter blues, to go with this post of blue polishes, but I really don't. I love this weather (as long as I am indoors for most of the day) and I love not having to wear a sweater to sleep.
I will start with the weird looking indigo. This was leaning a bit more towards purple in real life. It was intentionally applied as a jelly at 1 coat. It did not look patchy at all in real life, it looked great. I stumbled upon this Japanese brand, and now I want more. This is a really nice gel polish that feels luxurious for some reason. The formula and color payoff are amazing. The self-leveling, and durability were better than expected. This color is stunning in real life.
Then, let's do a little throwback to when my nails were short and my cuticles were dry from last Winter. I did two coats of this duochrome from Dare to Wear called Mystique, but I could have gotten away with one. This color is so nice, and not streaky in real life. Sometimes my camera picks up way too much detail. The formula was on the thick side, but the color shift was on point.
Lastly, the blue holo from the Spectra collection. I think this is supposed to be a dupe for OPI DS Glamour. Wow this color was really flattering on me. I thought it was going to be another medium blue holo, but it was exactly what I needed to camouflage my transition shape into almond nails. I loved the formula and the holo effect. I have a few others from the collection and they are all great. Definitely worth checking out.
