March Manicure Madness, Day Three: Blue Velvet

Electric blue isn’t the easiest colour to pull off. It’s striking and sassy, but not really for everyday wear. Today’s polish is a beautiful, bright blue by Calvin Klein, 71309 Electric Blue.

The polish has an electric blue shimmer with a medium glossy finish.

It’s not the most electric of electric blues, but I love it.

I applied 3 coats, but 2 would have been perfectly sufficient (I had a slight smudging incident…).

Application was easy but, like any blue, it stained my fingers where it touched the skin. I’m already anticipating a messy removal situation.

This is a Calvin Klein polish but it did not cost an arm and a leg – Cara Pharmacy in Sligo sell these at cheapo prices. Maybe they’re overstock, or discontinued lines, but whatever – if you look closely you’re guaranteed to find a gem or two.

Full marks from New York Lady for this electric blue beauty!
