Despite the fact that my favorite colors are pink and purple, and that those are the colors I gravitate towards when I buy... I wear an awful lot of BLUE polish. I blame cobalt and ultramarine for being so bright and irresistible! This shade might be swaying towards blurple, but I'm counting it as BLUE...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats China Glaze History of the World
2 Coats Pure Ice Iris
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Rather than pull out yet another ultra bright blue polish, I thought I'd go a little darker. Stopping short of navy, I picked out History of the World by China Glaze to be my bluish polish for today. It's dusty and almost navy with a smidge of purple thrown in there to keep it interesting.

But why stop there?

True to my at-least-two-polishes rule for this challenge, I added Iris for a little bit of extra shimmer. Specifically, it's an extra-fine shimmer that flashes blue to purple housed in a translucent icy blue base. It's one of the shimmer wing polishes from Pure Ice. I wish they came in all the colors of the rainbow... they're really the perfect finishing touch for any manicure! If you're on the fence about whether you need these in your stash, definitely pick them up. Especially if you love layering polishes!

And while we're on the subject of picking things up... I'm on the lookout for a couple of Fall collections this weekend. Revlon Fiery Temptress, Sally Hansen Runway Collection NYFW2015, SinfulColors Oh Snap and Truly Madly Sparkly. I haven't had this many collections to look for in a very, very long time. There's just something about the thrill of the hunt that I love, Love, LOVE! If you're searching for these collections and other Labor Day deals this weekend, I wish you the best of luck... and Happy Saturday!!!
