The Color Box: Blue

The Color Box is a blogger and brand collaborative box lead by Julie from Blue-Eyed Girl, Manna from Manna's Manis and I. The idea was to have a single color themed box of custom blogger designed polishes. In each box we invite both new and well-known brands and bloggers. The fans vote for the color, and the box is a pre-order only launch that lasts a full week. Each brand also has the option of listing their polish in their own shop after the box has been shipped.

This month's box color is Blue! Pre-order is March 10th - March 17th. 20 boxes will be available for purchase at the Indie Shop event in Atlanta Georgia on March 11th. If you're going, I'll see you there!

Sakura Skies
Jen / Baroness X
To match the upcoming season, I chose a bright summer sky blue base packed with shimmer and pink to peach to gold shifting glass fleck with a dusting of holo.
Demi did a stellar job matching the polish to my inspiration photos and description, don't you think? The hidden holo comes out in bright sunny outdoor lighting. I wore two easy coats and topcoat for a glossy shine. Formula was fantastic, and packaging is amazing. The skinny round bottle is easy to store, the skinny flat brush allows for ease of control while polishing and the cap adorned with a painted cabochon really magnifies and shows off the detail of the polish.

Manna's Mystical Masterpiece
Manna / Tonic
A cobalt blue duochrome that shifts to purple with a fine linear holographic finish. I wore two coats with topcoat, formula was good. This polish has a metallic-y finish and the subtle holo is more apparent in bright sunlight.

Texas Treasures
Krystal / Supermoon
A dark navy with holo copper microglitter, metallic copper microglitter, spectraflair and holo clear microglitter. What a stunner! Flashes of holo and coppery shimmer everywhere, formula was buttery and fantastic. I wore two coats with topcoat.

Blue A Fuse
Lo / Blush
A deep blue base with blue micro flakies, holo flakies, holo and a hint of black shreds. Great formula and such a shimmery, sparkly shade! I wore two coats with topcoat.

Niagara Sunrise
Steph / Blue-Eyed Girl
A faded denim with copper fine and medium shimmers and gold microflakies. Formula was good, and just look at the flakies in this! I wore two coats with topcoat. I was able to wear this polish for several days, long enough to notice nail growth (5ish days?) and there was no chipping!

    1. Generally my favorite blues are the dark, vibrant ones!

  6. My favorite mainstream blue is Sally Hansen Pacific Blue (the original version), but my favorite indie is, hands down, Baroness X Vulcan Blood. It's the perfect shade of blue - not too dark or too light, and the fact that it's a jelly means that it's super versatile.
