Blue's always been my favorite color so I'm almost positive it's cosmic polish fate. Which is a thing.
|Blue Moon Lagoon, DS Sapphire, Sonic Bloom, Absolutely Alice, DS Fantasy|
I haven't done a plain ol' spam post yet sooooo why not, right? Why the heck not. At least half of my polishes are untried, anyway.
First we have Blue Moon Lagoon, from OPI's 2003 Summer for Shore collection. It's a super sheer light turquoise-leaning blue linear holographic polish.
UHHHH. Where the heck did my pictures of this go??! Of course I would have lost all my swatch pictures when my computer died and they weren't backed up anywhere because I'm a true genius. Sad! I'll have to reswatch. Anyway...
Next is DS Sapphire which was released in 2008. It's a pale, cornflower blue linear holographic polish with a pretty pink flash. I know sapphires are blue, and this polish is blue, but it doesn't really evoke the image of sapphires for me. Maybe, liiiike, DS Hydrangea. It sure it pretty doe.
Here's Sonic Bloom which looks cray in the bottle which I was completely unable to photograph. It's from the 2006 Brights collection. It's a sheer sky blue with a strong electric green flash and sometimes, in the subtlest way, shows a bit of pink too. I've heard this one called a duochrome but I don't know that I'd call it that. The green is pretty much always there unless you're in the dark.
|I almost got the pink, there. It's kind of peachy, but maybe you get the idea.|
Then there's Absolutely Alice from the 2010 Alice in Wonderland collection. It's a full-coverage cobalt blue glitter peppered with gold and is the only non-black label polish in this post. This is also the only polish I used a topcoat with to smooth it out.
Finally here's DS Fantasy also released in 2008. It's a ridiculously pigmented navy blue polish with almost hidden linear holo. I think this one should have been the sapphire, if we're getting real here. Have you seen a blue sapphire? It's pretty much literally this color exactly.
So there it is, I guess! If you were even mildly curious, I can tell you how I came about them.
BML: Dusty Hunted (found two bottles, actually! Swapped one for EP A Little Fishy Told Me like super early on in my polish days. I was soooooo pummmmmped).
DS Sapphire: Given in a Valentine's Day swap by a super rad lady.
Sonic Bloom: A polish friend saw it being auctioned in a group I wasn't part of so she bought it and then I bought it from her.
Absolutely Alice: Dusty Hunted (same place as BML... the owner apparently wisened up to the value of old polishes after a while because I went in to buy the second bottle of China Glaze DV8 she had and she was like 'nope!'. Broke my little heart).
DS Fantasy: Swapped for.
Ha ha, I can remember the stories of each one of my babies. If I didn't already have an actual human baby I think I would be seriously emotionally attached to these little bottles.
