I couldn’t decide on a polish today. I thought that this color was going to too dark for what I was feeling, but I was happily surprised. I saw swatches of this polish randomly and loved it. I love blue polishes, and have noticed I could use some more dark blues & Blue Moon fits right in that gap.
Dark blue with green microshimmer
This color is awesome. It’s super dark, but you can still tell that it’s a dark navy and not black. It may have a touch of green in the base color. It’s packed with navy and green micro-shimmer that lights up the polish in the sun, it looks so pretty. It’s super rich and full of depth. I don’t have any blue like this in my collection.
Great, dark pigmentation
The formula on this was excellent. It was super pigmented and went on smooth. I applied more polish on the first coat that I normally would just to get a nice, dark base. It was a touch runny but was really saturated. I used two coats and everything looks perfect. This polish also has somewhat of a jelly finish? It’s somewhat squishy and super shiny. Another reason to love it!
I’m worried about the wear on this bad boy though; the rest of the Wet n Wild Shines I’ve tried had chipping right away. This color is so nice, I hope that doesn’t happen.
Where to Buy: Drugstores / 99 cents!!
Do you own Blue Moon? If not, do you own anything dupey?
Ugh, let me just say that the weather here in Chicago was not working well with taking swatches today. It’s sunny, but not really, I feel like I can only get photos before or around noon or else it just doesn’t work. But these are the best I could do. What I really need is a new camera. Anywho..
Little Drummer Boy is a beautiful dark blue. It’s similar to a midnight blue but seems almost richer in a way. The shimmer within the polish really makes me want to call it midnight blue. It’s also difficult to tell what color the shimmer is? It seems as though it might be the same color as the base color, and it also might have shimmer that is slightly lighter than the base color. This color is very unique even though a “midnight blue shimmer” doesn’t sound that original, I don’t own any colors that close to this blue. It’s a darker, deeper color than say, Essie Midnight Cami.
The application and formula on this polish was insane. It could have possibly been a one coater, but I did a pretty poor job applying today because I was in a rush and excited. The formula was smooth like butter and fully saturated. Also, once you add your top coat to this color all the shimmer comes shining through like you’re out in the sun. You really see the depth and how pretty it is. Though there is sort of silver / metallic finish on this polish that I don’t know how to describe since there’s no silver in the shimmer or anything. It’s faint, but you can see it in the bottle as well. Something about this color reads “velvet” to me.
Is anyone as excited about this China Collection as I am? All of the colors are really cool and interesting!
