Nail Polish Battle 2021: Grey, Blue and Black

 So far I have looked back at purple polishesnude and brown polishespink, red, orange and yellow polishesglitter polishes and green polishes, today is all the grey, blue and black polishes that joined my collection in 2021.

Barry M - Aronia Berry // Barry M - Charcoal // Barry M - Berry Pie // Barry M - Blue Margarita // Barry M - Salt Lake // Prism Polish - New Year, New Meh // By Dany Vianna - Starry Sky // A England - The Waves // Whatcha - Heart of the Ocean // Barry M - Night Sky // Danglefoot - Oh Plesiosaur // Rimmel - Moonlight Magic // ILNP - Eclipse (H) // A England - Orlando // Rimmel - Matte Black

By Dany Vianna Starry Sky, I hadn't tried any polishes by this brand but this one is really beautiful. All of the people I have asked have known exactly which art piece inspired the polish, Starry Night Van Gogh. It was part of August's Polish Pick Up and the theme for that was the elements. A sheer jelly base with glitters and star glitters.

Barry M Night Sky is a straightforward navy cream, part of the Green Origin line, paddle brush and opaque in two coats. I like this polish as a base for nail art, layering other polishes over, it is a deep blue but still clearly a blue rather than a black.

Which leaves Whatcha Heart of the Ocean as the winner. Another from Polish Pick Up, the theme of this one was 'The Nineties' and in particular the film Titanic. The polish is a deep blue base, packed with blue flakes and holo glitter. I like the depth of colour in this polish, and it just like the colour of the jewellery dropped back in to the ocean towards the end of the movie.

Nail Polish Swatch: ILNP - Eclipse (Holo)

I got the regular Eclipse last year and liked it so much (it won my 2020 nail polish of the year) I thought I would try the holographic version. The polish is quite beautiful, however I think I prefer the standard version more because the holographic particles almost take away something from the super shifty base.
