You all know Jax from Craftynail, right? You should, since we collaborate on the Nail Art Ideas Linkup! Well, she’s one of the awesome friends that I’ve made through blogging (seriously, I would go crazy if it weren’t for her!) and because she’s such a sweetie, she offered a guest post up while my hand heals a bit more ❤
Hello Brijit fans! My name is Jacqui and I run a U.S. nail blog called Craftynail. Brijit and I are great blogging buddies! Even though she’s in France and I’m in New York, it’s so cool that WordPress and our love of nails brought us together! I’m very happy to share a post on her blog during her mini hiatus.
I do a lot of nail art on my blog, but today I’d like to show you some blue nail polish swatches. I’ve been wearing a lot of blue lately because it’s a great color for wintertime, but also because I LOVE BLUE NAILS! I just love glancing down at my hand to see blue fingertips- they’re so fun, bold and confident. It’s like making a statement to the world, “Check me out! I’m no shrinking violet!”
There’s so many great blues out there, and if you asked me which are my faves I’m sure I could put together a massive list! But today I’d like to show you some of my newly acquired blues that I just love. It’s a nice variety too- a dark, a bright, a metallic foil and a matte. I will surely be wearing these babies this season…
DARK BLUE– BUTTER LONDON ROYAL NAVY. Royal Navy is a super shiny and opaque dark navy blue cream. Almost a one-coater but I like to do two coats just to play it safe. Navy is fashion-forward and classy. Everyone needs a good navy in their stash!
BRIGHT BLUE– BRIJITS DIGITS BLUE FLAME. Yes, I love this bright blue. Yes, Brijit made it. Need I say more? It doesn’t stain your nails AT ALL, and it wore for days and days without chips. It’s gorgeous on me, if I do say so myself!
METALLIC FOIL BLUE– ZOYA CRYSTAL. From the first time I wore it went to the top of my list of faves. It’s got so much goin on in there! Here’s how Zoya describes Crystal: Light, silvered shiny blue metallic foil with sparks of brilliant yellow gold. A cool, snowy winter blue that’s ideal for any Ice Princess.
MATTE BLUE– ZOYA PHOEBE. Phoebe is from Zoya’s Matte Velvet collection. I really enjoy owning special finish nail polishes like this one. Phoebe does double duty- it’s beautiful when it’s matte, and it really lights up when you add a shiny topcoat.
Now I’m curious to know what your favorite blue is. Go ahead and leave a comment! I really hope you enjoyed my swatches and I look forward to seeing you online! Feel free to track me down on my blog, facebook, pinterest, twitter, tumblr, or bloglovin. Take care, Jacqui aka Craftynail
My favourite blue ever is Butter London Blagger! I’ll have to do a proper review of it soon 🙂
A big thank you to Jacqui, and the other lovely ladies – Helena of Procrastacreation and Sarah of Très Chic Nails – who have guest posted for me this week!
