Shouldn't be considered blue!
i was looking for a true grey/blue this is more on the green side. Disappointing, but I dues use it under a "jelly " polish that also has "holos" and it works. Now it's a matter of staying power. According to the other posts I may have a problem time will tell.
Worst chipping I have experienced thus far
I can't believe how fast this polish chips, even with a base and top coat. I did a combination of this color and a Zoya and my Zoya is looking great after almost a week with only minimal tip wear but this, I have had to patch every single day I've worn it with significant chipping taking place even on the first day. The color is not my favorite, it's kinda a muted dark teal/pine green that stamps very well and one coat is enough to cover. Interestingly, the nails I have done the base coat with Zoya and used this color to stamp with has not chipped at all, but the nails were this color is the base coat have chipped horribly. So I guess I would only recommend this polish as a stamping polish.
Blech. Looks more like dark grey than blue
I wanted a true navy crème and thought this would fit the bill. However, it is a muddy grey-blue that barely looks blue, but isn't a true grey either (which would be fine, if that's what it was). You have to put it up against pure black to show it has even a hint of blue. I did a color swatch of all my nail colors on one of those plastic nail rings and it's the only one I really hate just looking at. I probably won't wear it ever.
Beautiful colour that chips right away
It's a fantastic dark teal, and it goes on in one coat, but it chips within a day. Such a shame.
