Zoya Blu

Hi you guys! Happy middle of the week! :-)

Today, I have another soft and pretty polish to share with you from the Zoya Lovely Spring 2013 Collection. Blu is a light pastel blue with a creme finish, and it is my favorite color from the collection!







I can't get enough of this blue. It has a dreamy, delicate quality to it that I'm totally in love with. I've been searching for a baby blue with a good formula for some time, and I'm so happy to have found Blu. It applies smoothly and easily, drying quickly to a glossy shine. And two coats is all I needed for opacity. It's just a tad runny, so be sure to wipe off the brush well or you may get some pooling.

Zoya Blu (left) vs. Zoya Kristen (right)

I thought Blu might be similar to Zoya's Kristen, so I compared them side-by-side. As you can see, they are actually quite different. Kristen is darker and much more gray, while Blu is a pure light blue with no discernible gray tinge. I was pretty disappointed with how gray Kristen turned out to be, with barely a noticeable blue tint, so I'm really happy that Blu is exactly what I wanted.

You can find Blu on Zoya.com for $8 for 0.5 fl oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

    1. Isn't it just beautiful?! I think so too! :-)
      I don't have Once in a Blue Mousse, but from swatches I've seen, Blue Mousse looks more aqua and a little darker than Blu.
      Thanks! <3

    1. Thanks, I'm glad you're liking this! I'm actually not a huge pastel polish-wearer either, but light blue is a weakness of mine that has recently developed. :-)

  7. I'm not into pastels (on myself, like them on others) but it is pretty! And although I think pastels are too light for me, I guess it would look ok on me since it does on you, and we have such similar coloring. :) So I'll try it if I ever want a pastel. ;)

  11. Amazing. And I'm sure the formula will be a million times better than Essie's Borrowed and Blue. I don't know, sometimes Essie formula is questionable! I absolutely need this :)

    1. Yay I'm so glad you love this! I don't have Caress, but the two seem close from swatches I've seen. However, you can never have too many baby blues, is my philosophy. :-)
