China Glaze: Blue Year’s Eve To Chase Away My Blues

Today is Grandparents Day and I’m blue missing all four of my grandparents. I was so lucky to live in the same, small town as they did. They were a vital part of my growing up and gave me the best childhood memories.

Speaking of blue, I was rummaging through my stash and found this beauty…

China Glaze’s ‘Blue Year’s Eve’ is quite a blue. Check out that far left side of the bottle and you can see the faintest hint of the pink shimmer.

About 14 years ago, I had a roommate that spent almost every day at the beach. She wasn’t into much girly-girl stuff but she always had her toes painted. She used a blue polish very similar to this one. And that’s what got me started wearing fancy, fun colors on my toes. I decided then that wearing ‘odd’ colors, as I thought of them at the time, on my toes was safe.

However, today I am sporting them on my fingers…

I have on three coats with no top coat. The first coat was super sheer and looked turquoise. A couple more coats and this became a blazing sapphire. Cool how a blue nail polish can help soften the blues of the soul.

Are you a blue nail polish wearer?
