I have a penchant for collecting blue nail polishes at the moment. Today I’m going to show you three blue Essence nail polishes – one of them has been discontinued (I Love Bad Boys), but the other two should still be available.
I don’t think I have yet talked about the brush. I’m not always sold on wide brushes, but I really like the Essence one (although my favourite is Guerlain). The width is perfect for my pinkie nails – I can polish it in one swipe and the brush is rounded enough so that I can get a nice application at the bottom of my nails without flooding the cuticles.
All these shades are two coaters and apply evenly.
I Love Bad Boys is a pale blue crème with sea foam green shimmer. I have no idea why they needed to discontinue this one because it is a very unique combination.
Splash! is a metallic turquoise blue-green. I’ve seen it around on quite a few blogs and decided that I need to get it, too. The colour reminds me of Chanel Azure, which I stupidly didn’t buy when I could.
Miss Universe is a dark blue, almost grey, crelly with light blue shimmer. The shimmer is bigger, but not big enough to call it glitter. This shade can look slightly duochrome in the bottle under certain light, but the effect doesn’t translate to nails.
I’d have a hard time picking out a favourite from this bunch as I love them all. Which one is your favourite?
