31 Day Nail Polish Challenge: Day 5

Day 5! I think this is the longest I've ever stuck with a series other than the SNS (which is coming up later on this evening). Today's colour is blue, and when you're finished humming the Eiffel 65 song, check out the swatches below.

The polish I chose is one I hadn't had the chance to swatch before, it's a recent addition to the Catrice line called "Blues Brothers Vol II". From what I can see, it's a replacement for my favourite blue polish ('It Blue My Mind') that was discontinued. They're very similar polishes, but BBv.II has a much stronger shimmer, whereas IBMM was more subtle. Here's the bottle:

And here's the polish:

Look! Sun! That's inside, in direct sunlight. Here's one outside:

Pretty, isn't it? I really love Catrice's darker nail colours, the quality and longevity is fantastic. Here's the flash comparison:

L - Inside, with flash. R - Outside, without flash.
I really love this polish, I'll definitely be using it a lot this winter. I was gutted when I discovered that the other blue was discontinued, because it was absolutely gorgeous, but they've managed to come up with one just as good with this one. Nice work, Catrice!

Until tomorrow (violet),

  1. Ohhhh love the colour! And wow, 31 days that's insane.
    I wish I had enough polishes to do a different one every day for that long :)


  2. Thanks Stace! I know, the 31 day thing is a bit overwhelming, but I'm sure I can use some polishes more than once, there are a lot of fun design challenges coming up soon :) Thanks for reading! x
