Do you guys ever get a little out of sorts when your routine is changed? I never thought I was a routine person. I liked to think that I was more spontaneous. But as I’ve gotten older I’ve started to realize that I do like my weekly routines. So now that school is over and I’m working full time, I’m trying to come up with a new routine that’s going to work for me.
But today I have another beauty from Anny that Sabrina sent to me in out swap. I know that everyone is getting in the mood to start wearing their neon polishes, but there is something so sexy about a dark polish. So while I’ve been living in my pastels and bright colors lately, I definitely can appreciate and love a vampy blue.
Anny “Smokey Jewel” is a dark dusty blue creme. Its almost like the crelly formula, a cross between a creme and a jelly. But there is a grittiness to this polish that you can only really see on the first and second coats. This polish was perfectly named because it is like a smokey dark sapphire.
The formula on this polish was a little sheer but workable. It took 3 coats to be opaque, but it dried pretty quickly so I didn’t mind too much that I needed a 3rd coat. The formula was a little bit thinner too, but not so watery that its a problem. Overall, I really like this polish and its a great dark blue! While I have a ton of navy blues in my collection, I don’t have any that have this dusty quality to it.
What do you guys think? What are your favorite dark blues? Do you have any Anny polishes (that made me laugh a little while typing it)
