My blue obsession

Hello lovely readers! Today's post is sort of a special one for me because it talks about my ultimate obsession: blue nail polish. It all started a few weeks ago when I asked Marisa from Polish Obsession how many pink polishes she has. She took it as a challenge and photographed all her pinks to do a post about them. I decided to do the same with blues because blue polish is for me what pink polish is for Marisa: the ultimate obsession. 

First I want to apologize for the quality of the pictures. My light box doesn't fit so many polishes and I didn't have any natural light, so I did my best. You will notice that most names are clickable and by clicking you will be taken to the original post about that polish. If the name is not a link, it means I haven't done a post about it yet, but feel free to request it in the comments section if you have a particular interest in something. I also inserted a jump in the post, because it's very pic heavy. Ok, that's about it. Enjoy!

In case you haven't counted, they are 71. I didn't include some turquoises that leaned more green and I also purged a few recently, so there might be some that you've seen on my blog at some point and I gave away afterwards. One thing that I'm sure of, I will never stop buying blues. To me they are all different and there are so many shades and finishes that you can never have too many. What's your obsession? 


  1. Wow, ce multe si cat de frumoase sunt toate! Momentan albastrul meu preferat e Blue Bells Ring din colectia China Glaze de Craciun.

  2. Hahaha that's really a lot of blue nail polish :D But I get you, I do really like blue on my nails too :)

  3. Awesome blues you have Mihaela!!! You make me want some of these, lol!!! And you're not far behind me ;0). Thanks for sharing!

  4. That is a lot of blue!! I am jealous!

  5. I obsess over the "almost black" colors, those vampy colors that look black from far away but they really aren't when you look under a light or up close. So here I'll be changing my nail color 2-3 times a week & somebody will come up & say, "wow, your polish really stays on a long time, is that the same color as 2 weeks ago? what top coat do you use?" & I'm like "Dude, I changed my color 6 times in the last 2 weeks, what are you talking about, they are all different"!

  6. omg! that's a lot of blue! bineinteles ca toate-s diferite pentru tine! Asa-s si eu cu fardurile.. de orice culoare :)) toate-s diferite! si eu le vreau pe toate!

  7. OMG, 71 numai albastre? Sunt minunate, albastrul este si culoarea mea preferata la oja :D Si vad ca o ai si pe cea pe care o ador momentan: Blue Eyed Girl!

  8. Well you KNOW I love this post!!! I can never get enough of blues!!! Awesome collection :)

  9. L-am vazut la tine pe blog. E superb!

  10. Thank you hun! Yeah I think we should also compare to the size of our collections. I think for me the blues are about a third of the whole.

  11. That's funny! I love vampy colors too! And it sometimes happens to me that I wear two different colors that look close. I sometimes do it intentionally, so people don't notice how often I change my polish. It's better for them not to know how many I have lol.

  12. Fiecare cu pasiunea sa. Eu n-am decat cateva palete de farduri si de multe ori ma gandesc ca n-am nevoie de toate. Dar la ojele mele n-as renunta. Toate sunt absolut necesare!

  13. Da, sunt cam o treime din total. Dar de exemplu din unele culori n-am decat cateva (gen roz, rosu). Blue Eyed Girl e foarte frumoasa, pacat ca pateaza unghia.

  14. Thank you Gosia! You should do one too. Although I think your collection is a lot larger hehe.

  15. loving the blues!! great collection!!

  16. Blue is my thing too! :D Nice collection there!

  17. Thank you! I'm glad you're one of us!
