March Manicure Madness, Day Twenty Six: One Blue Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

Ah, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Possibly my favourite movie-set-in-a-psych ward of all time, with Girl Interrupted nipping at its coat-tails in second place. Anyway, the reason I’m thinking of this film is because today’s polish is a sort of eggshell blue, hence birds eggs, hence cuckoos, hence favourite-movies-set-in-psych-wards-of-all-time comparisons. So yeah, eh, nail polish!

This is Revlon Nail Enamel in 044 Blue Lagoon. I love Revlon nail polish; it’s a little pricier than your typical pharmacy lacquer, almost on a par with salon brands like Essie and OPI – but, the quality is great, and their formulae and brushes are usually excellent, making for easy application and a salon-finish manicure.

This colour was part of last year’s summer range, now on special offer in Cara Pharmacy (also 20% off all cosmetics this weekend, woohoo). I think it’s a gorgeous Easter colour.


I have no complaints about this polish, at all. It took three coats to reach opacity and really bring out the microshimmer (extremely subtle silver, blue and purple).


Can you see the shimmer in the bottle? Kind of.


It’s a beautiful pastel blue that I’ll definitely be including in a Skittle manicure or two.



Gorgeous! Grab it while it’s still available…
