Today I've got my favourite blue polishes of the year for you. I think it's been a great year for blue across ALL textures. So, excluding my Big 4 brands, here are my Top 7 Blues of the Year.
(To go to the post, just click the polish name).
Above The Curve - Kahuna
ATC make great holos - FACT - and this dreamy Caribbean ocean of a holo is just dreamy, calming and utterly chillaxing.
Smitten Polish - Naiad
Maybe, like me, you've half been on an Aqua Lily holy grail, looking for that ethereal sky blue polish feathered with shimmer. Look no further - Smitten's polish is pure perfection.
Smitten Polish - Sunken Galleon
Round glitter was HUGE for me this year, and this pale blue creamy polish was made for dot glitter. Also possibly the best representation this year of a polish's name - with the pirate's treasure glistening in the ocean.
Zoya - Nyx
Zoya's PixieDusts were awesome, and this cool, wintry blue was the height of elegant sophistication. And look at that sparkle!
Mentality Nail Polish - Brute
This matte polish is a surprise favourite. In the bottle, it "just" looks like a blue polish. On the nail, it's a whole smorgasbord of wonder - deep, dazzling, opaque one-coater - that's just as good matte or glossed up. Winner.
The Polish Bar - Cobalt Blue
This is my favourite of the summer holo jellies released by The Polish Bar - deep, wicked and holo-threaded, this dark diva is just gorgeous.
Too Fancy Lacquer - Set Fire To The Rain
This may well be the best blue holo released all year - intense, glowy, almost blindingly beautiful, it doesn't get much better than this.
OPI - Can't Find My Czechbook
Ah, Czechbook. I feel I have been searching for you my entire life! The PERFECT turquoise - bright, light and dreamy. A glossy creme. Sheer beauty on the nails. Oh, and you don't stain either. Love you. For-EVER.
