NOTD: Sally Hansen Pacific Blue


Manicure: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color Pacific Blue. Electric Cobalt / Cornflower Blue.

How To: For this manicure I used one coat of Essie's First Base Coat for adhesion; two coats of Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Pacific Blue; and one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Notes: If you’re going to buy just one blue shade for your nail polish collection, let it be Pacific Blue. This is seriously the most incredible blue shade you will ever see. Though it’s not a neon, it is super bright and electric to look at – one of those colors that instantly catches your eye, and makes it hard to look away because it is so, so pretty. I see it as being a cross between cornflower blue and cobalt blue with a hint of periwinkle undertones in certain lighting.

Like the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Coral Reef I reviewed last week, the formula on Pacific Blue is fantastic. It’s very smooth, and is fully opaque in two coats (you may be able to get away with one coat if you have a heavy hand when applying). Also like Coral Reef, Pacific Blue has the easy-glide brush that I was raving about, so there is absolutely no drip during application – and the coats go on super smoothly.

This color has made Sally Hansen my new favorite drugstore nail polish brand, as the quality is just amazing for the price – under $3.00. This can be a hard to find color sometimes, so if you manage to spot it, no joke…buy multiple bottles. It is just that gorgeous.

Accessories: Forever 21 Iridescent Cutout Ring in Blue / Antique Silver.

I really like this blue (and all blue polishes, really), but sadly, I am not wearing any polish on my nails today, unless you count my feet, in which I'm still rocking No Room for the Blues by OPI.

Wow, that is electrifying, but subtly so. I don't usually go for darker shades, but yet again, you always make nail shades look so good!

Ooh pretty blue. I'm currently wearing a blue, with some slight shimmer, for my friend's wedding this past Saturday. I was a bridesmaid so we all got our nails done together. I did shellac since I don't do fake nails. Pretty though.

I've been searching for this bottle of polish EVERYWHERE! It's been an elusive little devil, but I will continue the search; it's so striking! I love how you pair your rings with your nail colors; it makes your pictures stand out in a vast sea of nail polish blog pics!
