This is a re-post while I am on vacation. Enjoy!
It occurred to me that maybe I should have posted this one yesterday since “Monday blues” has a good ring to it…ah but who cares, you can have the blues on Tuesday also!
I think a lot of you have been waiting for this one, and I was kinda putting it off actually. I knew this was going to be another one of those categories I would struggle with. I knew I couldn’t not get only 5 either, so I went with 10. I even had to cut some out that I loved as much as some of these!
Unlike a lot of other categories I have done, these really run the gamut in terms of finishes and variance in color.
In no particular order, here are my top 10 favorite blues!
Night Ops is deep, dark and shimmery. It reminds me of the deep blue ocean and scary great whites, which I am both terrified of and totally fascinated with. Loves it!
Snowcone is a cornflower blue, so while it does have a lot of lavender in it, it falls into the blue category in my book. What can I say I am a sucker for all things this color, and this is my favorite one!
Horrible washed out pic but hot color! It’s another super deep shimmery one and with a fantastic RBL formula.
Oh, Tiff! is super close to China Glaze For Audrey, but this has a very subtle shimmer, which makes me like it more. Also while this wasn’t the easiest to apply, it was a little better for me than For Audrey. I HEART Tiffany blue. Little known fact: Tiffany has the color “Tiffany Blue” patented so while there may be a lot of colors that look very close, none are the real Tiffany blue.
Phallic is a fabulous deep navy blue with light blue shimmer. I have worn this quite a few times and always stare at my hands (especially in sunlight) when wearing it. It’s mesmerizing.
Robyn was just added to my fav blue list last week when I got it. I wore it last week and absolutely loved it so much. Sky blue is so great with my skin tone and I like that it’s bright not but too bright.
Falling Star is so freakin’ unique it had to make my list. I like the blue but what makes this special is the copper glitter. Had this just been a blue creme or shimmer, no way it would even be in my top 20. BUT the copper glitter just makes it so great and interesting to look at! I also love that it’s not jam packed with the glitter, it’s dispersed quite nicely.
Water Taxi is one I swatched quite a long time ago as you can probably tell, but it’s still up there as one of the best. It’s a pale blue with purple/pink flash. I have yet to see another color like this one and it’s extremely gorgeous in person. It reminds me a little of the OPI Yokohama finishes.
Horrible pic but amazing color. This is one of my very first swatches for this blog! This is a dark blue with tons of light blue shimmer. It looks so much better than this in real life, trust me 🙂
Another one of my very first swatches, but an amazing blue. Every time I look through my polishes and see this one I must at least pick it up and admire it. It’s a robin’s egg blue with shimmer and I have worn it quite a few times. The application on this is particularly great also.
I now challenge YOU to tell me your top favorite blues are!
