Blue Hydrangea by Nubar

Hi lovelies~

Today I'll introduce you to another polish from the Nubar Spring Garden Collection (2011) and that I got from the lovely people at
On Tuesday, I reviewed Honeysuckle from this same collection. For more details on the collection and swatches of Honeysuckle, click here.

The sky is super dark and grey here, so in order to brighten up my day, I applied a gorgeous sky blue polish called Blue Hydrangea.

Blue Hydrangea is a light sky blue polish with some silvery white shimmer in it. The shimmer creates a nice pearl finish. But don't be afraid, pearl here doesn't mean application is tricky. On the contrary, application was super easy, without any brush strokes visible. Blue Hydrangea is quite opaque, you will need 2 coats for full coverage and a nice even look.

I also tried to stamp with Honeysuckle (Nubar) I presented last time. And I was very pleased to discover Honeysuckle works perfectly well for stamping ;D
I used BM image plate 16.

Final verdict: Blue Hydrangea is a must-have for blue lovers. The color is really pretty, very spring-like but also perfect for summer or to brighten up a dull day. What makes this polish special is the pearl finish. A baby blue with a pearl finish is totally unique to my stash. I also love how easy it is to apply it. It dries really quickly. So that you don't need 1 hour to achieve this mani.
