Manicure Monday: Blue & Butterflies

MM-BlueThI don’t want to jinx it, but I think summer is on the way. And to make me start thinking summery thoughts, I’m wearing a summery polish, as I try to avoid dark colours more in brighter months. This little blue number on my fingers today is from Sinful Colors, and is shade 1100 – Blue By You.

I was lucky enough to find this one amongst lots of lovely polishes in Dealz recently (and at €1.49 per bottle, I bought a few) and couldn’t wait to try it out.


The Sinful Colors brush is not too wide or too thick, and it fans out on the nail really nicely. It’s not a 1 stroke per nail job like some brushes, but your standard three stroke application is perfect for this. It also comes out nicely opaque in 2 coats, but due to my being impatient and doing too many things at once, I of course smudged a couple of nails, and added an extra coat to even them out.


Now, this polish can only really be described one way. It is the Caribbean in a bottle. It is such a rich blue, but the addition of turquoise micro glitter to it makes me instantly think of azure seas, warm breezes, golden sands and drinks in coconuts, made with the finest local rum. And now I want to go on holiday there. Curse me and my travel agent marketing history!

Also, just to add something different to it, and because they just add to the summery feel of this mani, I added an accent nail using one of my iNailz butterflies, reviewed here.

Does this polish make you dream of summer holidays? Have you gone out to Dealz to hunt for  it yet? If you haven’t, why not? (Unless you already have it, in which case kudos to you)
