It’s time for another round with The Beauty Buffs, and this time the theme is Royal Blue. I wasn’t looking forward to this one, because I was sure I didn’t own any royal blue polishes. Turns out, I was wrong (for the first time in my life [hah!]… As the lovely Shira pointed out, I had even posted a picture of a royal blue glitter polish on my Instagram account. -.- Wuups. So I started taking a closer look at my polishes, and swatch sticks, and it turns out I have more than one… I though I’d share four different looks with you today; A smooth creme polish, a textured polish, a sparkly polish and at last royal blue in action in some nail art.

Creme polish

First off we have the creme polish. This one was given to me by a friend, and I had totally forgotten I had it. I present to you; ESSIE – Mesmerized.

It surprised me but I really like this one, it was opaque in just one coat, but I added another one to get it completely smooth. It’s really rich and yummy, high in gloss, and I definitely won’t forget about it again.

Textured polish

Second we have the textured one, and that is the gorgeous-ness that is Zoya – Liberty.

The sparkle in this polish is insane and so bright. This one is on the border of being royal blue, but I’ll let it pass. (Obviously the pictures was taken before I joined nubbie-ville… :P)

Glitter polish

It’s not really correct to call this one a glitter polish because it isΒ speckled with holographic glitter and not what you think of as traditional “glitter”, so the removal is much easier, and the sparkle much brighter πŸ™‚ This is piCture pOlish – Freya’s cats.

Freya’s cats borders on being a jelly, but it is opaque in three coats. The polish is so dreamy and I almost got into a traffic accident because of it…

Β Nail Art

Lastly I wanted to share some nail art I created after I saw the design on @lifeisbetterpolished Instagram account. I’m not really pleased with how it came out (the anchor is wonky), but I thought I’d share it with you anyways.

That’s it, so the conclusion of this round of The Beauty Buffs? I have a lot more polish than I thought… Heh.

Please take the time to check out the other royal blue posts from The Beauty Buffs;
