Bound By Blue

I've being thinking about featuring more of my nail polishes on here in a series of colours, so thought I would start off with my favourite colour, that being blue.

Blue Nail Polishes

1. Bourjois So Laque  'Bleu Fabuleux', 2. No7 Stay Perfect 'Sing the blues', 3. American Apparel Neon Blue Nail Lacquer, 4. Revlon 'Blue Mosaic', 5. Rimmel Salon Pro 'Navy Seal', 6. Barry M 'Cobalt Blue', 7. Barry M 'Navy', 8. Barry M Texture Effect 'Atlantic Road', 9. Nails Inc 'Garrick Street', 10. Models Own 'Beth's Blue', 11. Essie 'Bikini So Teeny', 12. Collection 2000 'BMX Bandit'

I picked out twelve shades of blue to feature today; although one is a glitter polish and the other is rather questionable as to whether it is classed as a blue or a shade of purple.

Out of all of these twelve shades my top three favourites are Bleu Fabuleux, Navy Seal and Beth's Blue as they are my current favourite shades of blue within my collection, as well this in my opinion they are really good quality. Unfortunately I find that the No7 polish does not stay on all too well, however I have not tried this with Seche Vite as of yet which I'm sure would really help its longevity on my nails.

I'm not 100% what colour Nails Inc Garrick Street should be, to me it is blue and purple a bit like the colour of petrol. I'm definitely not a fan of the texture polish by Barry M, the colour itself is lovely yet I really cannot warm to the feeling of it on my nails, I wish I hadn't purchased it to be honest but it was a lesson learnt.

  3. I love the idea of grouping your polishes by colour, you have so many great shades of blue :) I only own one blue shade - and that's Fragile by Illamasqua. This post makes me want more though!!xx

  9. I love all of these but the BarryM texture effect looks pretty cool! I normally opt for the greener colours though but blue looks lovely! :)

  11. This is an awesome post idea. It's so lovely to see all the colours and swatches. You must have a whole lot of nail polishes if this is just blue! haha

  15. These blue polishes are gorgeous! Revlon's Blue Mosaic would look so pretty layered on top of another blue creme polish. I'm loving the shade of blue of BMX Bandit though!
