Color Series Day 2: Cobalt Blue

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, the rest of this weeks posts will all be centered around my favorite color, cobalt blue and basically all of the cobalt blue colors that I own and comparing them to the mother of all cobalt blue polishes, Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, the original formula. I have several more comparisons today so let's get to it!

Much like yesterday's post, my middle and ring fingers have Sally Hansen Pacific Blue and the index and ring fingers have the polishes that are being compared. I don't know if all of these polishes are available so forgive me if they are discontinued!

First up is Kiko 336. I don't own a lot of Kiko polishes but the ones I do have fabulous formula's and this is no different. This was 2 easy coats, plus topcoat. This is darker than PB, obviously.

OPI's My Pal Joey from the Hello Kitty collection is probably the closest to a dupe to PB that I own. This looks the tiiiiiiiiiniest bit darker in person but it's very very close. Great formula, 2 coats plus topcoat.

Bonita My Avatar from the Gel On collection is again, darker than PB and has a tiny tiny shimmer but that's not noticeable on the nail. This was 2 coats, plus topcoat. Bonita is another really great and underrated brand, IMO. I've had excellent luck with all of the polishes I've tried from the brand.

China Glaze Man Hunt is CLEARLY not even close to PB but it's still a gorgeous color. This is almost a jelly formula but was opaque in 2 coats, plus topcoat.

Sally Hansen Byte Blue is another very very close match to Pacific Blue. I would say that it could probably pass as a dupe, though it's slightly lighter. This was 2 coats, plus topcoat.

Finally for this post, we have Wet n Wild Coast to Coast, which I do know is not available any longer. This also has a shimmer running through it but it's very very faint and basically not noticeable on the nail. This was 2 coats, plus topcoat. A 3rd coat would have made this completely opaque but it looked more opaque in person to be honest, lol.

Are you sick of cobalt blue yet? I hope not because I have two more days of beautiful blue to share!!

Talk to you soon!
