Ruby Kisses Blue Pearl

Quickie post today, girlies.  Not that I'm in a rush, I was just too lazy to schedule this post and now I'm too tired to write a lot.  (But knowing me, I probably will.)


Today's post is a beauty but not your usual July fare here in Amandaland.  Now, before my lovely friend Marisa raises her eyebrows and asks why I, the compulsively seasonal polisher of the blogging world, am wearing a dark color in the summer, I must explain that I read a few weeks ago that dark blues were totally on trend this summer.  As I look around and see every other girl in neons and orange, I realize I was clearly the only one that got that memo.  It was in that light I decided to test out my very first Ruby Kisses polish, gifted to me by none other than the aforementioned Marisa of Polish Obsession.


Blue Pearl is one of those polish that is perfectly named.  A dark royal blue with a pearlescent finish, the subtle shimmer creates a dull duochrome effect in the sunlight, shifting the shades of blue from navy to cornflower.  It's slight, but it's there.


Without direct sunlight, the polish is still gorgeous, a deep jewel tone that I imagine will flatter any girl's hand.  The formula was a tad thin but built up nicely in 3 coats.


I really love colors like these although I probably won't be whipping this out again until September.  Unless, of course, the trendsetters change their minds again.  Oh, the color peer pressure I suffer from!

  1. Well, it IS pretty. 

    What about a classic shade, like red? I'd think that is year-round.

  2. Oh, Tara.  You and I need to talk.

    Of course red is year round.  But there are spring reds, and summer reds, and fall reds, and winter reds -- which in all honesty are very similar to summer reds, but more cherry-toned than pink toned.  I could literally make you a matrix of reds to seasons.  Yeah, I'm that sick.

  11. Thanks!  I'm just nuts with these things; I'm sure those that don't follow the trends are happier polishers.  I'm already craving vampier shades but can't bring myself to use them.
