Summer Blues

I have an obsession with blue nail polishes; any shade, any finish, it doesn’t matter! The main reason I like blue polish is due to the fact that it goes with everything! Seriously; try think of a colour that blue clashes with; Pink? nope. Red? Nah. Yellow? They look great together! I know that it may not be the most professional colour, especially if you are attending any interviews or meetings, but if you are looking for a fun mani/ pedi colour that will go with just about anything on a Friday or Saturday night, then blue is the polish for you, or at least it’s for me!

Depending on my mood I go from light and subtle pastels to bold and metallic polishes and I have acquired quite a large collection at this point.

Soft & Subtle: Raindrop from NYC 

I picked up this NYC nail polish at Penneys in Dundrum back in February and I cannot remember the exact price but I am pretty sure it was less than €2… can anyone verify that?! I love this shade of blue, very soft and feminine. On a side note that is not my diamond ring; I work at ESL Jewellery and a really fun part of my job is trying on exquisite pieces of fine jewellery.

metallic Blue; Essie

I blogged about this polish last year and I am still obsessed with it! Aruba Blue from Essie is a deep and dark polish that is a great alternative for anyone who likes to wear black and burgundy polishes. It has a bright and metallic finish so it is very eye catching.

Bold & Beautiful; H&M 

I have gone through a couple of these polishes from H&M called Blue my Mind as it my all time favourite. The colour is bold and makes a statement and actually goes with EVERYTHING. Funnily enough I am wearing it at this moment in time as a type, although not that surprising as I really do wear it all the time!

I realise that not everybody is going to have the same passion for blue polish as I do, but I would highly recommend picking up one of these nail polishes for your collection to try it out!

What is your go to nail colour?

  1. I’m lovin’ your nails! Blue has always been my favorite color for nails. It just seem to have a level of, I guess “class,” that red or pink don’t have.
