Go Blue Lightning, Go, Go!

Hello, Fireflies!

No matter what polishes I use, I seem to always come back to blue.  I love blue nail polish - and it always reminds me that I could never wear it as a kid.  How normal it seems now!

I picked a couple of different blues to wear together, both from Indies.  First, I picked Dollish Polish It's Bigger On The Inside, an homage to TARDIS blue.  It has micro silver glitter in it.  Can't go wrong with that combination!

I knew I wanted a silver glitter division between Bigger and my next color, but I wanted to make sure the glitter looked opaque, so I lined it with silver first.

I think it looks like lightning.  I also think I am a doofus for making the same line on my index and middle finger.

Maya Cosmetics Stargazing is supposed to be a dupe for Essie Starry Starry Night.  I don't know if that's true, but I do think it's gorgeous.  It's a little on the thick side, but a few drops of thinner took care of that.  Really thick polish is just a pain for nail art!

I think the silver glitter looks so much better over the silver base, don't you?  I knew you would.

I have a soft spot for Maya Cosmetics - I love all of their polishes that I've tried, and the packaging is really nice, too.


Midnight blue is really hard to capture in nail polish - too often it just looks black.  Not here, it's a true Midnight blue, my fave color.  sigh...

    1. I can't get enough blue. I must have hundreds of bottles of blues in different shades and finishes.. and some that are probably dupes. Maybe. I'm too scared to look too closely.

    1. The nice thing about microglitters is that they look great and they're not as hard to remove, in my opinion. A little acetone and felt, and bob's your uncle!

    1. That's what my hubby says, too, when I do a bold, simple look. He calls them all 'stained glass' manis.

    1. Thanks! I'm not sure if you can get these brands in Aussie-land, but you can probably find similar ones. You have some great Indies that come out of Australia.

    1. Your eyes (or monitor) deceive you a bit - it's actually a dark midnight blue, not black! I love midnight blue.

  17. I know exactly what you mean about capturing midnight blue! Purple is my favorite color! le sigh.

    1. Isn't just perfect when you can capture it, though? Love it. I enjoy purple polish a lot, too - so many possibilities!
