Ta-daa! My most recent purchase, essie Beach Bum Blue ($16.95) from the markets..
To be honest, I'm picky when it comes down to blue nail polishes, and ESPECIALLY if it's of a metallic finish! I've said this before, and will say it again: the only acceptable metallics are gold, bronze, silver and some pearls. Metallic finishes for any other colours seems to never look right in my eyes!
So! Beach Bum Blu, cute name, but unfortunately not an exception from my list of "awkward metallics". It's described as a "medium sea side blue", although pretty, is one that I'd probably only reach for when I'm doing nail art.
..And as I was typing up this post, I actually got down to nail-arting with Beach Bum Blu!! Hopefully I'll be able to show you in my next post!
2.30AM now! Chop chop, and off to sleep I go!
Hope you're all having a fresh and lovely Monday!
