A few months ago, I got an email from an amazing girl named Beth. She offered to send me some nail polishes, because she was moving and couldn’t take all of her polishes with her. Beth, I can’t thank you enough for everything! You were so kind to offer to send me 1 polish, let alone the number of polishes you did send! She ended up giving me a few lemmings, but a major stand out in the box was this polish!
I passed on this at first because it didn’t seem unique. Even years after this polish came out, I would still look passed it at Sally’s. But after trying it out, I’m hating myself for never giving this polish a chance!
China Glaze “First Mate” is a dark denim blue creme with a little bit of a grey tone. The color is absolutely fantastic! It’s dusty, almost like an old pair of jeans, but dark and vampy at the same time. Indoors, it looks like a really nice navy but still looks blue in every light. Outdoors, like in the photos, its a gorgeous deep blue.
The best part about this polish is the formula. This polish is just 1 coat! Seriously, a 1 coater! The formula is so opaque, so creamy, and so easy to use that I was just astounded. It was a little on the thicker side, but nothing that was an issue. The dry time was fast and the finish was smooth. Overall, I’m just in love! I wish I had known about this polish years ago!
What do you guys think? What are your favorite blue polishes?
