Nail Polish Battle 2016: Blue and Green Polishes

Barry M - Sugar Apple // Sally Hansen - Mojito // Barry M - Cardamom // Nails Inc - Hyde Park Court // Champneys - Wisteria // NYC - Water Street Blues // Kiko - Cerulean Blue // Make Up Gallery - Sapphire Blue

I managed to break down this category to two blues and two greens. Wisteria is such an odd colour, I think I would describe it as being cornflower blue. Kiko is very vivid and a great pop of colour.

That said I chose Cardamom as the winner as it is such a unique colour, it is a dusty green toned polish. Lovely formula as well.

Nail Polish: Battle of Blues

If you would like to see which nail polishes were battling it for the blues last year then click here. This year the battles will only be using the new polishes I have got since last year.

Top Three
Maybelline - Cool Blue | Yes Love - L011 | Barry M - Blue Grape

Barry M Blue Grape, I really like this one it has a nice depth to it and isn't too dark to be mistaken for black

Summer Nail Challenge: Sunset

Last challenge of 'Summer 2012 Nail Challenge' which was quite a challenge but one I managed to do every challenge of. This is Summer Sunset, late in the summer it is warm enough to say outside the sun goes down slowly hence the warm twinkles as the sky and the sun join.

Swatch: NYC - West Village 204B Polish

This is a crème finish nail polish, it has no shimmer to it despite it looking as it does with the flash. It is a deep dark blue, a true navy. What I like about this polish is while it is dark on the nail you can tell its navy rather than black.

Lasting Power: Average
Opacity: Three coats needed
Brush type: Standard
