Got the blues in winter? of course, you do! Welcome to the club! Seriously, I’m talking about a nail polish really 🙂
I’ve always been a fan of red, vampire red, or bloody red and very dark nail polishes. In my stash of nail lacquers, rarely do I find grays, greens or blues. Ya know why? because for whatever reason, blue just doesn’t look good on me. Perhaps it’s my skin tone, perhaps it’s the light, perhaps it just doesn’t work. I’m always cautious in buying those colors because every time I wear them, my nails just look bruised! Hematoma much?! Well, I’ve also come to realize that perhaps it’s all about the wrong choice. Wrong kind of blue, I mean.
With my chocolate-chip-cookie skin, that is, light in the winter, tan in the summer, I find that varied shades of turquoise works. So, as I was looking for some polishes to try, I saw this little blue, turquoise-like nail polish which came from my Birchbox subscription. I thought, why not give this a try? so yeah, check this out:
I just love this color on my skin, it’s not hematoma-looking at all, it’s a miracle, lol! The nail polish is by Alessandro International Nail Polish in the color Blue Lagoon. It’s a popular brand of nail polish in Europe, which originated in Germany.
It’s a gorgeous turquoise color, which reminded me of Sephora/OPI’s Skinny Jeans, but it’s not exactly similar because the Sephora one is glittery, while this one is not. It’s more like OPI’s Shrek Edition called “Ogre The Top Blue” but way darker.
This is super easy to apply, holds well and dries fast. I believe the brand has a website, but I got mine as part of my Birchbox subscription.
Isn’t this color pretty?
