5 of the best… Moody Blue Nail Polishes!

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 24 - 2011

Ok, so these aren’t necessarily ‘moody’ but I didn’t know how to describe them.  I love blue polishes and wanted to do a comparison post showing some of the blues in my collection that are a little different to the norm.  A little greyer… a little more… stroppy.

Some of you were also keen for me to elaborate on potential dupes for Butter London’s new Lady Muck polish.  I’m afraid I came up empty handed on that score!

1. Essie – Sag Harbor
2. Eyeko – Rain
3. Butter London – Lady Muck
4. Butter London – Victoriana
5. Barielle – June Bug

A close up so that you can see the finish of each polish.  You can see that the HTF Essie Sag Harbor and Eyeko Rain are definitely quite close in appearance.

Yesterday I was also asked about the differences between BL Lady Muck and Victoriana.  Hopefully you can see that they’re worlds apart.  Barielle June Bug?  Well that’s just a fun odd ball!  Incidentally, I wonder what’s happened to Barielle’s Spring/Summer collection… anyone know if there is one?

What are your favourite ‘odd’ blues to wear?

    There ain’t no 2011 in Barielle-ville. “Rain” is a great polish – as are most Eyeko. Have had June Bug for yonks. Too scared to try it as everyone says it is thick and unworkable.

    I love #4 Victoriana!hmm might have to purchase it very soon!
    My current fave is China Glaze sea spray – it looks similar to sag harbour and rain :)

    I absolutely love Eyeko Rain, it’s such a great “moody blue”.
    It reminds me of when I was younger and I’d make “fake nails” out of blue tack!
    Not so keen on June Bug, it looks like random specks of red glitter on blue, not for me, at all.
    The two Butter London ones here are gorgeous too!

    I’m definitely a fan of “moody blue” nails, strange, because I can’t usually stand blue nails!

    I love the first three in the close-up photo. BTW, I think you would like China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le (I know, the stupidest name evarr); it a little bluer, but still a lovely cross muted color. I have a photo of the bottle somewhere on my blog. x
