Bluey is a blackened teal polish with a foil-like, almost metallic finish and a slight duochrome shift to green. She's a complicated girl! And she needs at least two, maybe three coats to get opaque.
Another gorgeous BL blue is Royal Navy. I almost didn't pick this one up - I mean, I have a few navy polishes already. This one is a keeper! This is one coat. It is very pigmented, so be careful with application, as it may stain. I used two layers of base coat as a precaution, and it cleaned up fine.
This is with no topcoat. Look how glossy! I love dark blues that still look blue, not black.
I did two nail art looks with these colors. The first is one of my fave kinds of manis - the dotticure. I used Bluey as the base, and then dotted with Artful Dodger and Royal Navy.
My hubby said that the dots looked like eyes. It wasn't what I was going for.... but, okay...
I decided to do a glitterbomb/ombre style look with the Royal Navy. Frilly Knickers is on my pointer finger, West End Wonderland on my middle, Tart With A Heart on the ring, and Knackered on the pinky. I love the purple duochrome of Knackered, but my fave is TWAH - the aqua shimmer is so unexpected!
More BL to come!
