Today I have Julie G Santorini from the Cruise Collection for Summer 2014. I know this is not your typical fall colored nail polish but, today I'm shaking things up and throwing the rule book out the window!
Santorini is a light cornflower blue nail polish that reminds me of a beautiful cloudless sky. There was a hint of shimmer that caught my eye in certain lighting but was so subtle that my camera couldn't capture it.
The application was pretty good, This polish was a little thicker than I am used to and I had some small splotches at the base of my nails with the first coat. I had to wait for the first coat to dry completely before applying the second or I got some slight dragging. Everything dried to an even, smooth, glossy finish. Shown here is 2 coats without top coat.
This is such a pretty shade of blue. I can't wait to wear this again with some glittery tips. I just got the perfect glitter polish in the mail to use. How's that for luck! Speaking of glitter polishes, I used Santorini as a base color for a glitter topper earlier this year. Check out this image from my review of the Veils Collection by Maybelline.
Don't they look made for each other? How would you wear Santorini? Alone, with glitter, or as a base for nail art? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
