Beautiful frosty, icy, baby blue polish. I usually prefer creme polishes, but the pearlescent finish is perfect for this one. It applies smoothly, self-leveling nicely. It's opaque in two coats and...

This is one of those colors that looks better in the bottle than on my nails. Its streaky and opaque, taking 3 coats to get full coverage. I wanted to like it, after it sitting untried for so long...

This is the frosty baby blue and probably one of the prettiest blue polishes ever. I love this polish. Two coats make it opaque. I love this.

I'm still looking for the color I expected this nail polish to be. Like one of the other reviewers, I was hoping for more of a cream finish, but this is just really shiny and metallic-y, a...

I admit it; I'm a nail polish junkie. I have more nail polish than I have any right to. I love blue nail polish, though I'm starting a red phase. So when I saw this in Ulta, my heart skipped a...

It's a beautiful metallic blue color. I love the way it looks on my nails. I'm not usually a big metallic fan but this one won me over.

Love the shade, hate the finish. Metallics are notorious for their lack of pigmentation. Consequently, it takes 3 coats to achieve bottle intensity. That being said, this polish wears well (around...

Really deceiving. It's more of a grey with a light blue tint but unfortunately the nail polish is too shiny (jelly texture) for the tint to be visible at more than 15 cm. Rather streaky and thick....

I saw this on the internet and loved how it looked on a lot of people. Someone commented here that it takes two to three coats to make the blue appear, and this is true. At two coats, the colour...
