Happy Blue Monday! Today I have a polish to share with you that I am completely in love with: Orly Royal Navy. It should be no surprise who picked this polish out, none other than Mr.Polish himself. I swear, every one of you needs one of him. (Just not mine, he's taken, good & proper, haha.)
Royal Navy, 3 coats - no topcoat
Excuse the little bubbly thing on my ring nail
That aqua shimmer gets me every time. *drool*
How delightful is this polish?! I am so immensely in love with wearing blue polish it is crazy that I don't post blue mani's every day. Yesterday, a good friend of mine -- I will refer to him as "Mr.Hockey" -- said he loved when I wore blue and purple polish so this one's for you, good buddy. ;)
Royal Navy is a vivid, jelly-like blue with intense aqua/teal shimmer. I tried Googling the various types of blue so I could pin-point the exact name of this particular shade and the closest I came up with is "Ultramarine" (if you click the link check out the second "synthetic" ultramarine blue).
Application was good, a little thick, but nothing that a little patience couldn't help with. My advice is to polish a couple nails and then put the applicator back in the bottle and gently roll it between your palms a couple times. I found that the polish tends to build around the bottle neck and that's where you can run into some issues. Next time I will add a couple drops of polish thinner, that should fix it.
What's your favourite blue polish? Okay, okay, you can chose your top 5 - chosing only one would be cruel. ;)
