Good God this is a gorgeous color. This is a rich cobalt blue with glass shimmer. It is not too deep nor too light. It's right in the middle and perfect.

It never appears black or any other color. It is a stunning blue. Easy formula and isn't too thick or thin. Two coats and you could even get away with one.

Royal Navy is a cobalt with tonal shimmer. Pretty shade. Rich formula, could get away with just one coat. However, it chips pretty easily.

This is the most beautiful cobalt blue, maybe even my favourite blue polish. The brush is easy to handle - not too big and not too small - and the polish flows nicely so hardly any clean up. I've seen a review that says it's expensive but the amount you get in a bottle (18ml) is really quite generous and so not as pricey as it first seems. I will definitely be buying a backup bottle.

I got this for free as it was being phased out of the store, and while I had seen reviews and pictures before, I didn't think I'd buy it. This isn't really "my" color, but having said that, I actually do like it. (I prefer my blue san-sparkle) This is actually really nice. I've used it on my toes and for some nail art. I don't know that I'd pay for it, since Orly is expensive and it's not my favorite color, but their quality is great. So if you like the color, go for it.

Well, the color is gorgeous---that's a given. This is a blue with such depth and intensity you could almost fall into it. And if you shake the bottle long enough,the turquoise shimmer will be well distributed.

But the wear---holy cow! It's been on my toes for over three weeks now, topped with Sally Hansen Super Shine topcoat, and there. Is. Not. One. Single. Chip.

NEON COBALT. Need I say more?



This is a medium-dark, purple-leaning blue (as cobalt blue should be), but it isn't purple enough to be called a blurple. It's neither translucent enough to be a jelly nor opaque enough to be a creme, rather it sits somewhere in the middle, just translucent enough for the turquoise shimmer to show through. And because it dries to a matte finish, you know it contains some neon pigment.



This is a color that's bright and dark at the same time, preventing it from ever looking dull or boring when indoors.

This was one of my very first polishes and I love it. It comes on very easily, and I need only two coats to be totally opaque. Dries super quickly, and with top coat, looks fabulous! Lasts for a while, too.
Also, the microglitter in mine doesn't have that much of a separating problem, but I always shake it a lot before using. This is a great polish that I use over and over again!

This is a blue I always find myself reaching for. Took a lippie off because the glitter sinks to the bottom and I have to shake really hard for 5 minutes to redistribute it. With that said it's totally worth it. Royal Navy is beautiful by itself and simply stunning with FingerPaints Motley layered over it. I'm very glad this is a core color since I will be buying it again when this bottle runs out. I've gotten many compliments wearing it and have recommended it to a lot of people.

What a vivid color! I love pretty much all orly polishes and treatments, they are so reasonably priced with good quality. Royal navy is a royal blue packed with micro shimmer, it just lights up on your nails, I can't stop looking at it when I wear it and I get so many compliments. Application was easy, two thin coats of perfection topped with my orly Sec'n'dry for that shine and lasting manicure. I was also able to wear this for 5 days with no chips! I only took it off because I change my colors so much. If I ever run out I will definitely buy again!
