Blue Are You?

I chipped a nail this morning! Gasp! Actually, it's all good. Gives me an excuse to show you another blue polish on Autism Awareness Day!

This post features "Blue Are You?" By That One Nail Polish.


From the site:
Blue Are You? is a gorgeous blue jelly polish with shifting rainbow hex glitters! It's like a jelly sandwich all in one bottle!

**NOTE: Blue Are You? appears is a little on the thick side. This polish may need to be shook up pretty good. It goes on smoother then it may seem like it will. You can always add a polish thinner if necessary.

Well... That's a very accurate description. I bought this polish over a month ago. I believe the disclaimer was NOT there at the time. Anyway...

I have to admit, I'm having a love-hate relationship with this polish. It's unique and GORGEOUS in the bottle. It's gorgeous on the nail too, but... Yes, it's thick. My bottle is SO thick that even with nine drops of polish thinner it's still gloppy and pasty. So... When you look closely, you can see its bumpy and thick and it didn't spread well. Now, I believe I read on either Facebook or Instagram that Roxette switched to a thinner base recently, so I assume its not as big an issue as it is with my bottle.

It mad me pretty sad, actually. I tried to do thinner coats, but, especially around the edges of my nail by the skin, it just wouldn't play nice. Sigh.

But it's so stinking pretty! If it were thinner, I would use it more. I am not sure how often I will use this particular bottle. I wish I knew if others have had better experiences. I'm waiting to hear back from Roxette.

Anyway. It is stunning to look at, the hexes are a bit sheer and the two coats I use look so deep and mystical. And the jelly is highly pigmented and so bright it looks almost like it glows!

Time for pictures!

  1. I'm not usually a big fan of blue nail polish, but this is such a stand out color. I like it a lot!
