POP Beauty - Baby Blue

Hey nail polish lovers!!   Happy Sunday!!

Today, I wanted to share with you a polish I purchased from Harlow & Co. on black Friday.  Yes, I know, another black Friday nail polish purchase.  I had to take advantage of the sales maaan!!  LOL

Anyhoo, I purchased my first Nubar and three POP polishes, one of them being Baby Blue.  As I've shared in the past, I love pastel colors, and I was hoping that this one would impress me.  While I'm in love with this color, I don't like it on me and I definitely don't like the formula.  It is like many pastels, very chalky.  Application was a pain.  It went on very streaky.  The polish was opaque in two coats, but I had to try and level it out with the brush to prevent some of the balding that occurred. 

I didn't really like the way the polish looked on my skin tone, so I asked my husband for a second opinion.  His response: "It looks like chalk!"  That was confirmation that it was not for me.  So, I'll be trying it for water marbling, since I do think it's a great color.  Hopefully, that'll work well.

In these pics, I used Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat as a base, two coats of Baby Blue, and Seche Vite fast dry top coat.

I'm looking forward to trying the other colors I purchased.  I'm hoping the formula will be different since they aren't pastels.  Keep an eye out for them.  I'll be sharing them soon.

Have any of you tried this polish before?

  1. Yeah, such pastels can be a PITA. It does look kinda stark. Such colours tend to give me lobster fingers. Can use for nail art, as you said.

  2. Marisa I LOVE this on you, maybe more of a summer colour but I love the contrast. I think I have a pastel blue that is also a pain to put n think it took 5 coats, half the little bottle gone!! :-D

  3. Oh I love these types of blues! But you're right application is a pain!
    I have a very pale completion so I think this shade works on me (but I can't pull off oranges and many grays)

    You know, a brown stamp would totally help you rock this shade :) like Sally Hansen coco a GoGo :)
