Julie G- Santorini

    
     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!

  1. Oh wow, the base colour alone is already too pretty, and with the glitter topper it is like an ice princess mani, love it.

  2. I have this color, but I agree that it was a bit disappointing about the shimmer. :(

    1. Im so glad someone else saw the shimer in it. I was beginning to think that I had imagined it. I keep looking at the bottle to see it and have only gotten a glimpse.

    1. Funny thing is about 2 years ago I never would have thought to wear a blue nail polish. Now I own a bunch of them and actually like wearing them.

    1. Thanks. It is the only one like this in my collection. All the other cornflower blues I own don't even compare.

    1. As bad as it sounds Im glad to hear that I wasn't the only one that had issues with application. I read a few posts where bloggers had said it was great. I was beginning to wonder if I hadnt mixed it up well enough after it sat here untouched for over a month.
