Monday Blues: Flormar 438 and U25

Hello loves! It's Monday again and that can only mean blue! I'm gonna keep it as short as possible today because I have to get back to studying. So today's post is about 2 Flormar blues. Let's take a look!

The base color is Flormar 438, one of the new polishes for Spring and Summer 2012. You can tell these apart by their caps. The caps are the same color as the polish while the rest of the Flormar polishes have white or black caps. The new collection is great and it has a lot of fun colors. I really like them because they are pretty unusual and there are a lot of shimmers as well as cremes.

The only thing I don't like about these is that they are impossible to photograph. There must be some kind of ingredient that makes them look different in photos. This one for example is kind of a dusty medium blue. It came out cobalt in the artificial light photos but I assure you that it's more muted in reality and has a certain elegant feel that reminds me of Essie polishes. The sun picture shows the color a little better.

The formula is great on these. Two effortless coats and it dries to a glossy finish. I would say it's more of a crelly (a squishy texture with the opacity of a creme). After wearing it for 2 days I added a funky french using another Flormar blue, namely U25. This one is a layering polish from the Miracle Colors line. It has a subtle purple duochrome but it didn't want to come out in any of my pictures. It's more evident in the bottle than on the nail. This is one coat of it applied after I taped my nails diagonally.
