As I have mentioned many times in previous posts, I often succumb to peer pressure (though admittedly, I am usually just using peer pressure as an excuse to buy or wear something). With so many beauty bloggers and Youtubers going on lately about Sally Hansen's "Pacific Blue" nail polish, plus the fact that Sally Hansen's Xtreme wear polishes are some of my favorite formulas (up there is butterLONDON), I just couldn't help it. I held out my hand to shake peer pressure's mitt and in return he painted my nails this beautifully indescribable color (and also impossible to photograph).
Take the jump to see more photos and get an idea of how gorgeous of a polish this is (and, of course, to give yourself one more reason to buy yourself a bottle)!
You can probably tell that "Pacific Blue" is a real color shifter... but in the most beautiful way!
In some lights it's a rich cornflower blue, in others it's a periwinkle purple, heck sometimes it even looks like just a plain old blue. However, in its truest and most common nature, it is a vibrantly deep blue jay feather (check here for a google reference) with a dominant violet undertone.
The photos below with the polish up against different fabrics shows it much more closely in its true color:
I hope this post may have helped to persuade you to pick up this polish; it really is unlike any blue I have ever seen before (and, being a painter, that's a pretty hard claim for me to make!) and perks up my mood just by looking at it.
Plus I get LOADS of compliments on this polish, so if you're the type of person who digs for compliments all the time then this is sure to bring them to you ;)
I had to sneak in a picture of Galileo snoozin' the other day... can you blame me???
Have you been swooning over this polish as much as I was/still am?
Have you seen Sally Hansen's "Pacific Blue" in person?
Already have it and love it (I can't fathom anyone hating it!)?
