As promised, today I’ve got my cobalt blue nail polish smackdown post for you.
It seems like cobalt blue has been a super popular shade these past few months. After I started getting quite the collection of them I decided a comparison post might help a lot of you decide which ones you might want to check out.
I went through my stash and decided on these 12 shades, which are all (for all intents and purposes) creme shades. A couple of these technically are shimmery. Dior Sailor has some shimmer, but it’s super subtle so you barely see it. Orly Royal Navy is also a shimmer, but the shimmer settles at the bottom and if you don’t shake it up you can get a nice blue jelly creme from it! Many of these are more recent shades and still available, but others are a few years old.
You know what’s weird? Out of all these shades there are really no dupes! Ok two of the really dark blue shades could be considered dupes, but I expected to have at least one or two dupes of the lighter, brighter shades. But nope.
