Pick A Polish: Barry M - Blue Moon

Hi loves. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and are enjoying the rest of the bank holiday weekend. I had a day out in London yesterday which was fun and I think I'm going to be having a bit of a lazy day today to recharge my batteries before work tomorrow.

So today I shall be showing you this week's Pick A Polish and this week it is Barry M - Blue Moon which I have been playing with. I used to use this one quite a lot (its quite hard to see in the photo but the bottle is actually half empty), but I haven't used it in a while so it was good to revisit an oldie.

For full details on this polish read on after the jump.

Blue Moon is a pale blue creme polish, it does have a tiny bit of shimmer visible in the bottle but you cannot see this on the nail. This polish has a nice consistency but it is quite sheer and streaky so application isn't brilliant, but you can get a good finish with some effort. My swatch shows 3 - 4 coats without topcoat (I needed an extra coat on some nails because of streaking).

My mum recently came back from a holiday and she brought me back OPI - Polka.com as a present which I was very excited to use, so I went for a glitter gradient.

Over Blue Moon I used a make up sponge to sponge on Polka.com.

I say this every time I do a glitter gradient.. but they are so pretty and so easy to do! 

So despite being a pretty colour I'm not totally in love with the formula of Blue Moon, that is probably the reason I haven't used it in so long. I am loving Polka.com however and I think these two polishes go together very well :).

Let me know what you think in the comments ladies.

Thanks for looking.
