All About The Blues

Today I wanted to share two polishes that I can't get enough of for spring and summer this year, and they are both blue.
Blue can be a tricky colour to wear, but if you manage to find the right shade, I'm a huge fan of it on the nails...


The first is the most perfect cornflower blue from Rimmel. It's part of Rita Ora's new range and it's called 'Bestival Blue'. It's really similar to another colour from Rimmel that I picked up last summer called 'Fancy a Dip' (which I repainted my nails with three or four times in a row when I first got it!) but I think this one has a teeny tiny bit more lilac in it, which I love.
I think it's one of the most flattering shades of blue I own (and looks especially great with a tan!) I've already gotten loads of compliments on it having only worn it a few times. The formula is also very impressive considering the £2.99 price tag. It's opaque and dries fast to a glossy finish, although the brush could be smoother, I really love these polishes for a quick, affordable nail update.


Another colour I'm loving is from Essie's new spring collection. Garden Variety is a gorgeous teal blue/green. The formula of this polish is incredible. It's a little more expensive than the Rimmel (£7.99) and also a really similar colour to another shade from Rita Ora's new range in 'Portaloo Blue', but the thick, opaque formula is seriously amazing, it's worth the extra few pounds to me.

These polishes have firmly secured a spot in my all time favourite shades, and I can tell I'll be wearing them a lot this summer! What are your favourite blues?

  2. I love blues but I don't think they look that nice on my skin. I do love one from Sephora's Sea Glass range (I can't think of the name but it's more of a blue violet). These two are lovely though!

  42. I really love pastel blue shades for spring, so the Rimmel one is right up my alley.
    During summer, however, I like to sport more vibrant colors, so I might try out the Essie one as well.

  65. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through her mail (navaroloancompany@yahoo.com) of $200,000 with a duration of 10 years. When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my greatest surprise my loan was granted with
    an interest of 2%. I was able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a settled family. So if you want any type of loan for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail navaroloancompany@yahoo.com.I just fulfilled my vow.
