Wow, this stuff sucks. The color in the bottle is gorgeous, but the first coat barely even looks blue. After 3 or 4 coats it KIND OF looks like the color in the bottle. Some of the other Hi-Definition polishes are nice, but not this one.

I REALLY did not like this one. The only positive thing is the actual color of the nail polish. It's a bright, shiny medium blue. However, as many of the other reviewers have mentioned, the quality negates this. It's far too thin (three coats at MINIMUM) and takes an absurdly long time to dry properly. If you don't have hours of sitting with your hands perfectly still after application, the polish will smudge in heartbeat. Is the air humid? Just forget it! Not to mention that the polish stuck to the skin around my nails more than any I've ever used, even after a hot shower! In fact, in the shower, the polish started peeling off of my nails while it clung stubbornly to my skin.
Just a big ol' "NO" to this one. There are some really lovely blues out there-- buy one of those!

This is a beautiful shimmering electric blue, and I like it so much I got a backup bottle. It starts out a bit sheer, so two or three coats are a must. Drying time isn't exactly lightning fast, but it's not horrible either. However, it doesn't dent or bubble, and application is easy. This is definitely a bright color, so prepare for your nails to get noticed: guys especially seem to like it, judging by the comments I've received.

I really love this blue color! perfect for spring and summer!! Its a medium blue with shimmer. Its very thin, so it took a few layers but it just looks so pretty and is such a different color from what I have.

I have both pros and cons for this polish.
First off, the color is GORGEOUS. An amazing electric blue that seems lit from within. Unfortunately, it took 3 fairly thick coats to achieve the color in the bottle. ANother major con is that it took FOREVER to dry. Longer then any polish I have. With a quick dry top coat you would be OK, but I wanted to layer it with shatter so I had to wait for it to dry completely and it was much longer then I was expecting.
I don't want to give it a horrible review, because I love the color and it's perfect for summer, I just wish SH could have tweaked the formula a little so it was more opaque and dried quicker.

This color is a vivid bright true blue. I thought it would look just as wonderful as the other HD Nail Color polishes but it is extremely thin! You need 4-5 coats of polish to get the color in the bottle to appear on your nails. If it were opaque within 1-2 coats it would get 5 stars, but as it is, no way.

When I first got this I didn't like it. It just didn't seem "HD" to me. But I've grown to appreciate the glowy blue color. The problem is it's too thin. I loathe having to put more than two coats of polish on. I mean, I've got a life to lead, plus the risk of smudges multiplies the more coats you have. Still, it's pretty, and looks nice layered over another color.

What a terrible nail polish. The quality is soooo thin and you need several applications before you can cover your nail. So expensive too for cheap quality and there's nothing special about the formula.

I saw these in Rite Aide last week, and I fell in love with the whole line.
Blu caught my attention because it's so different than anything else I've seen. I bought it, but since I had just done my toes earlier that day, I decided to hold off to try it out. Yesterday afternoon, it was sunny, and I was bored, so I took my bottle outside, sat in the sun, and painted my nails. :)
I will agree that you do need atleast two coats for good pigmentation, but I don't find the color streaky at all, and I think the brush and formula is great. Compared to other brands, I thought the drying time was relatively good, and the colors are gorgeous. I spent an hour outside, and in that time, I removed nailpolish, did three coats, plus a top and a base on my hands and feet. :)
I liked Blu so much I went back and bought more.

Not the best from Sally Hansen.
This colour looks gorgeous in the bottle. And if you want this colour on your actual nails, your going to be needing 3 coats and about 4 hours for it to dry properly because it's very dentable for hours.
I've had this colour on for almost 3 days. I had tip wear within a day and right now I have some pretty bad chips. I used my best base and top coat with it too and I still couldn't make it lasts (which sucks cause it took so much effort to get it to apply properly.)
Bottom line: The formula is way to thin and streaky. People just don't have time to be spending hours on their nails. It's pricey for a drugstore nail polish as well. I will not buy again and probably will never finish the bottle despite the beautiful colour

This polish is absolutely gorgeous! I thought it was pretty inside, but in the sunlight it just glows! I have probably 20 or so other blue nail polishes and I always turn to this one when I want blue. The first coat is very sheer, but if you do the second coat a bit thicker, it is perfect by two coats. I also love these Sally Hansen brushes, they coat my nails with one swipe. If I ever have a chance to pick up another bottle, Iíll be sure to purchase right away.

Beautiful color but it takes more than 3 coats to get it on your nails. And it's still little sheer. It was incredibly hard to take it off. I had to rub my nails with cotton ball and polish remover like crazy. I didnt even try other shade i bought, I returned them right away.

As soon as I saw swatches of this online, I knew I had to have it. It's a bit pricey for a drugstore polish. The color is a really nice bright blue. It's kind of thin, so it takes three coats to look perfect, but that's okay to me.

In the bottle, this colour looks like a brilliant slightly shimmery true-blue. However, in order to get it to show up as vibrantly on your nails, you will need upwards of three coats!
The formula is very thin, runny and prone to streaks. Despite using thin layers, I still couldn't get a very even application. I quit after three coats and had to settle for a semi-sheer finish with some uneven-ness and bald spots (very noticeable in bright light)
Staying power is poor. Even using a great topcoat, I got tipwear within a day and chips within two days. Overall, the colour is pretty but the quality is regrettable. I'd rather spend a few bucks more and buy an OPI!
