5 Great Blue Nail Polishes for Spring!

In preparation for spring, I thought I'd let you all know what my favorite nail blue polishes of the season are!

Now, I'm not the kind of gal who runs out and buys every blue nail polishes out there. Truth is, I'm very picky about blues, and these 5 polishes are truly colors I love to wear!

I find all of these quite flattering on my skin tone, and easy to wear. I especially love the two Essie polishes. I must say, Essie really knows how to mix their blue polishes - they are always beautiful!



On the nail wheel, from left to right: Joe Fresh Cobalt, Essie Smooth Sailing, OPI Light My Sapphire, Essie Bikini So Teeny, China Glaze For Audrey

Sure, perhaps Light My Sapphire (swatched here) isn't exactly a color that screams spring, but I had to mix it up! Plus, it just shimmers so beautifully in the sun. I love Joe Fresh's Cobalt vibrancy - especially the fact that it's not too bright. Some bright blue nail polishes just don't float my boat. Essie Smooth Sailing is one of my favorite polishes ever. It's incredibly wearable, and just works. I thought for sure I had featured it on the blog before, but I guess I haven't! You'll just have to take my word for it! Bikini So Teeny (swatched/snowflaked up here) is gorgeous. It's the kind of polish I can see myself wearing over and over again, especially during the summer. And For Audrey is one of those classics every polish fan just needs to own. Trust me. I'd link you to my old post of this polish, but my photography skills sucked so much then, I advise you to simple google the swatch if you're interested.

Hope this gave you ideas on the best blue polishes out there! What's your favorite?

  2. I love blues, but I'm picky, too. My favorites are probably Dior St. Tropez, Tuxedo, and Electric Blue ;) They're just so no-fuss and easy to wear!
