Orly It's up to Blue

Who loves Blue polish?

  This girl right here! And why do I love Blue polish? Just take a look...
  It's up to Blue is a light Metallic Turquoise/ Blue that is rocking my world right now. It's bold and bright and just beautiful. The formula is very smooth but watch out for streaks, the less brush strokes you need to cover your nail the better. It is also very important to keep the brush strokes even and always in a straight up and down motion with polishes like this one. For the full effect I needed Three coats of It's up to Blue

Here is the whole mani with Two coats of Hard Candy, Just Nails Matte-ly in Love. Matte top coat.
  I really love the whole look matte so much more than glossy. Most of all I love that It's up to Blue manages to keep it's metallic appearance even when matte. I'm really liking the subdued sparkle on my tips. 

Quick note: To achieve a black tip with Black Out I had to first put down a base of O.P.I Black Onyx. Icing's Black Out by itself is not opaque enough to cover other polishes. Once my base of Black Onyx was dried I carefully went over it with Black Out and achieved the look I was going for.

What do you guys think?

  8. This is sooo pretty. I like it best without the black tips, although it looks amazing either way.
