Sometimes I pick polishes because they remind me of other things I like. Barielle Blackened Bleu (All Lacquered Up Collection, Fall 2009) is a turquoise microglitter packed in a black base:
Picture taken in natural light. This applied well; the first coat was rather sheer, but I got full coverage in two coats. I love this color! It is a blackened blue shimmer, but it’s definitely different from other navy blue shimmers. This looks amazing in the sun! The only negative is that I got quite a bit of shrinkage from my topcoat. I paired this with Sally Hansen Blazing Blue (Insta-Dri) on my toes.
So I’m wearing a blue polish today because Southland premieres tonight on TNT! I love a man in uniform:
That’s Ben McKenzie as Ben Sherman. This show was originally on NBC but it totally got shafted. So I was happy to find out it was getting another chance on a different network. And I hope it’s here to stay, ’cause it’s a really great show!
