Nail Wheel Wednesday is back after last week's unplanned hiatus. It's time for blue, and I've got some shimmers from light to dark, with some of them leaning a bit toward the turquoise part of the spectrum.

1. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Blackberry Creme (3 coats) [not a creme]
2. Claire's unlabelled (3)
3. Essie Blueberry Crumb (3)
4. OPI Breathe Life (3) [nice glow; I should try this layered over navy]
5. Barry M Blue Moon (3) [very subtle shimmer, like Chanel Riva]
6. Revlon Waterfall (3)
7. Revlon Blue Lagoon (3)
8. Revlon Colada Fizz (4)
9. OPI My Fave Wave (4)
10. Maybelline Express Finish Blue Brilliance (4) [nice pale pink shimmer]
11. OPI Go On Green (3) [not overly green, but very pretty]
12. Maybelline Express Finish Aqua Shocks (3)
13. Cover Girl NailSlicks Cosmic Blue (3)
14. OPI Can't You Sea (4) [love the multi colored shimmer]

  1. Awesome blues!! So weird that the essence Underwater looks a lot like my bottle of Hard to Resist *in* the bottle, but it looks totally different swatched.

  2. i'm so in love with blk-bila-bong *.*

  3. I will take one of each!!! I believe I only have two of these polishes and I am a major blue hoarder.

  4. Your right, OPI Breathe Life would probably look awesome over navy!! 11 and 12 are my favs!

  5. Number 15 would be my pick of all those pretties, it stood up to me!

  6. I love all of these! I'd really love to see Breathe Life over a navy- I bet it would look great.

  7. The Revlons # 6 + 7 are my favorites, thanks for doing this post :)

  8. I love blues :)

  9. Thanks for the comparisons; it's super useful! I have been wanting Barry M Blue Moon for so long! And the two Revlon light blues next to it are beautiful too :-)
