Polish Post #1 The Blues of Summer

Hello again! Today I wanted to share a dark dramatic purple look I did, but of course my Internet is moving at turtle speed so that's a no go. Anywho I decided I would do a post of my favorite blue nail polishes for summertime. I'm not particularly a fan of only wearing certain colors for certain seasons, these are more of the ones I always reached for this past summer. 
Pleaseeee excuse my gross cuticles..!!! My job dries my hands out like a s.o.b. I've recently bought a new cuticle cream that was working great but I seem to have misplaced it..

Starting at the pointer finger we have Essie's "Butler Please."
This is the perfect blue color. It really stands out on your nails. It dries to a matte finish so a topcoat is needed, unless you like that look.  It takes 2 coats to make it opaque. I would consider this one of my all time favorite nail polishes! 

Middle finger we have Revlons "Coastal Surf." 
Beautiful color! I always get so many compliments when I wear this polish. It's a bright blue/turquoise color.  It truly does remind me of the ocean. Great color for the summertime as it looks awesome with a tan and on your toesies. The formulation of this polish is fab. One coat and it is opaque but I always do two coats for any polish. 

Ring finger we have Essie's "Where's My Chauffeur." 
When this polish came out in Winter 2012 I knew I had to have it. It is from the same collection as "Butler Please." I didn't have any other color like it really and I'm glad i picked it up. It is a sea foam green/teal color. Opaque in two coats. Not as bright and in your face as the previous colors but superb none the less. This is one of the polishes I reach for when I'm not sure what color I want because I know it will always please me.  

And finally on the pinky..Essie's "Mint Candy Apple." 
If you read my last post you know I quite fancy this color. It's safe to say its my favorite polish of all time. You can't go wrong with this color. It's a gorgeous mint shade. I own a few other mint polishes and this one trumps them all. Opaque in two coats. I went for months not purchasing this posh because I had many similar shades but I took the plunge and got it and boy am I glad I did. If you don't own it, please go buy it! You won't regret it :) I plan on buying a backup soon! 

Well that does it for my favorite blue polishes for summer. I'll be back tomorrow with my favorite pinks/purples. Nail polish is my serious addiction. I own more than I could ever use in ten lifetimes, and I always buy more. So expect a lot more polish posts from me! Thanks for reading!
