Monday Blues: Navy Swirls

Hello my lovelies! I swear that this Monday caught me totally off guard and I forgot to schedule this post. So here I am, finally writing it after a busy day at work. Better late than never, that's what I always say. Today's manicure is some simple stamping over a gorgeous color. From all the blues in the world, navy is my favorite shade and I have quite a few different ones in my collection. To others they might all look the same, but to me they are all special. One that I haven't revisited in a long time is China Glaze Man Hunt, a polish I showed as a Monday Blue almost two years ago. I'm sure you won't mind looking at it again, especially because I added a little something extra to make it more interesting.


What I love about this polish and what makes it special among my other navy shades is the fact that it's a crelly. It covers like a creme, in two easy coats, but it has the squishiness of a jelly. I'm not sure that you can see it in the pictures, but I guarantee that it's there. This is what I would call a delicious polish. So squishy!


I decided to make it even more interesting by adding some stamping. I chose an image from plate NC02 from Nailz Craze and stamped with Konad White. I particularly like this pattern because it's fun and it also lets a lot of the base color shine through. It's also very elegant and makes all my nails look exactly the same, which I love.


I really enjoyed wearing these nails and got tons of compliments for them. I hope you won't mind seeing some of my older blues because I haven't been shopping much lately so I've reduced my untrieds to a minimum. Let me know what you think in the comments. And don't forget to check out the rest of the Monday Blues below!


Have a great week!

  4. Foarte frumoase! Albastrul acela chiar e delicious :) Ma tot uimesti cu culorile de la China Glaze. Mai am multe de invatat si cunoscut :P Stampila e perfecta. Instant mi-am dat seama ca e Nail Craze, si m-am si gandit ca-ti plac ca-s asa ordonate, la care am si citit ca ai scris acelasi lucru :)) :*
