Blue Nail Polish Swatches


Hello lovelies!

Today I’ll be swatching all of my blue polishes. I know this is long overdue: school is responsible for restricting me to shorter posts. I managed to swatch all of my reds over the winter break a few months ago. The other polishes have had to sit on the back burner for a while. Right now I am postponing all the reading I’ve been doing for American Literature (have mercy, Prof. Pace!) in order to finish up these swatches.

I have always been a fan of the color blue. Right after purple, it’s my favorite color. I love blue polishes, blue eyeshadow, blue sweater, blueberry pie, blueberry scones, blueberry muffins, blueberry cake…Christina, you’re blogging, remember? Oh, right! On to the swatches:

Milani Midnight Satin. This is a dark blue-black. The formula on this was watery. Maybe I got a bad batch?

Sephora by OPI Teal We Meet Again.


Color Club Emerald Depths

Sephora by OPI Opening Night

Milani Bolting Blue

Zoya Kotori

Essie Aruba Blue

American Apparel Peacock

China Glaze Up All Night

OPI Play Til Midnight

China Glaze Little Drummer Boy

Borghese Mezzanotte Blue

Sally Hansen Fairy Teal

OPI Russian Navy

OPI Ogre The Top Blue. I cannot believe how much I love this shade. I thought it would be too pale for me, but it's a lovely bright cerulean blue.

NYC Skin Tight Denim Creme. This is similar to $OPI Opening Night.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal

OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue

Rescue Beauty Lounge Dead Calm

Sally Hansen Navy Baby

Sally Hansen Calypso Blue. This is more aqua in person.

Revlon Midnight Affair

China Glaze First Class Ticket

FingerPaints Artistic Azure

Sally Hansen Blazing Blue

Sinful See You Soon. This makes me think of a nail polish version of MAC Deep Blue Green pigment.

Zoya Indigo

OPI The It Color; OPI In My Back Pocket. Of course, these are not blues, but they are sort of "wild colors", so I put all of my sparkle n/p and these in the blue drawer.

OPI Sparkle-icious (good sub for Mad as a Hatter), Sally Hansen HD Laser (gorg color, everyone should own this), OPI Catch Me In Your Net, China Glaze Midnight Mission.

Confetti Smitten

That’s all for now! I hope this was helpful. What are your favorite blue polishes?
