China Glaze So Blue Without You

Hi, you guys! I am so happy because I am officially on vacation from now until the end of the year. :) I've been looking forward to this since the same time last year, and it's finally here! 26 whole days of no work and no stress. I can't wait to catch up on my sleep and just have a lot of me-time. :D

Today, I have another favorite of mine from the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection to share with you. So Blue Without You is an intense saturated medium aqua blue with a shimmery foil metallic finish.






I just love bright, intense shades like this. Wearing such colors always cheers me up on a dreary winter's day, and this one's no different. Because of the aqua tint, you can see a slight green to the shimmer, most noticeable under artificial lights. The formula is pigmented and easy to apply. It's a little uneven on the first coat, but the second coat fills in everything and achieves complete coverage.

You can find So Blue Without You at your local nail salons and at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sally Beauty for a retail price of $7.50 for 0.5 fl oz.

  5. Such a cool polish. I think this one would look especially great with some snowflakes or tree ornament nail art.

  16. 26 days... so awesome :) Best time of year to have that kind of time, too. Do you bake? I'd love to have the time to make all sorts of candies and stuff for, like, everyone. It's remarkably time consuming, though. I spent 7 hours baking one evening last Christmas and had enough for, like, four decent sized gift baskets at the end of it. Anyhoo... GORGEOUS color. I always picture shades like this looking fab against a fluffy white sweater.

    1. The days are just flying by, but I'm having the most amazing and relaxing time so far. No I don't bake, and I think it's a good thing. Otherwise I'd be eating so much more haha. :D This blue + a white sweater would be just the most gorgeous and comfy combination ever. :)
