Great Color, Bad Polish

I got a nail polish recently, and though I was excited about it, I hadn’t planned to blog about it (it hardly seems fair to talk about a not-for-sale product).

The nail polish was a promotional item; Paige denim had a nail polish made in their signature blue. I loved it the first time I saw the bottle — cobalt is so hot right now. But I also take it as a bad sign when a polish bottle doesn’t mention its provenance (the nail polish brand that created it).

The polish didn’t work out. It was matte (which I wasn’t expecting and didn’t love… I topcoated it into a more conventional finish). It chipped significantly within 24 hours, despite my unbreakable combination of Seche Vite and Color Club Vivid topcoats.

But the color is so pretty! Deep almost-purple blue creme. I thought you guys might have some suggestions on duplicating this color.

    Perhaps Essie No More Film?

    If you can find RBL in IKB:2012 it’s similar- maybe a smidge more purple. It’s a jelly, too. It was LE though….

    You might give Essie Mesmerize a try :) It’s beautiful!

  • Kat says:

    Nails Inc. Belgrave Place is close, a little more purple. Nails Inc. Baker Street is a brighter cobalt.

  • Sally says:

    I recommend Nails Inc. in Baker Street.

    You have mannequin hands/feet! I’m so jealous!

    Try Revlon Royal!

    I wish I had a “good” dupe. I picked up a cheap brand called Bonita that had a gorgeous deep indigo/cobalt like this and the color was so thin and streaky I just wanted to cry.
