Top Five Dark Blue Nail Varnishes
As of Spring 2014
It seems like forever since I last done a Top Five post, so next in my Top Five series are my Top Five favourite dark blue nail varnishes. I’ve already listed my top five light blue nail varnishes and you can see all other posts in my Top Five series by clicking here. Blue is one of my favourite colours anyway and it’s definitely one of my favourite colours to wear on my nails and when I was thinking about varnishes I wanted to feature in this post because they hadn’t fit into my top five light blues, I came to the conclusion that I’m going to have to do a Top Five Medium Blue post as well, so that will be coming soon. This poor post, I’ve had it finished for a while now, but with me attempting to schedule posts ahead so I always have one going up every other day, this just kept getting shoved to the back as I had things I needed/wanted to go up sooner. But for now, on to my Top Five Dark Blue Nail Varnishes, in reverse order.
In Fifth place is NYX’s Titantic. I love this colour, but it only makes fifth place because it chips really quickly on me. It’s a gorgeous deep metallic blue though. One of the things that attracted me to this nail varnish originally was the name.
In Fourth Place is Model’s Own Valerian. This is a very new nail varnish to my collection, you can see the haul post here. But it has quickly become one of my favourites, but only when I wear it with a topcoat. The idea behind the nail varnish collection is that they dry to a matte finish but I’m not a fan of that. Adding a shiny topcoat gives this nail varnish such a depth, a starry sky or deep under the ocean effect. It’s stunning.
In Third Place is China Glaze’s Ride The Waves. This is a jelly formula varnish and as such I don’t wear it on its own very often, but I adore creating jelly sandwiches with it.
In Second Place is Zoya’s Dream. This was my go to nail varnish this winter, it is so pretty and I’ve used it so much. It’s a deep blue colour absolutely jam packed with silver holographic shimmer. The more coats you do the deeper the colour and the more depth it has, it really is a night sky on your nails.
And in First Place is A-England’s Tristam. The only reason Dream didn’t make first place is because of how much I love this nail varnish. It’s been a favourite of mine for about two years now, as anyone who regularly reads my blog will know. Nothing has happened to replace this as one of my all time favourite nail varnishes.
