Two Blues And The Blues Over Cosmetic Arts Polish

The folks that bring us Color Club, Forsythe Cosmetic Group, also produce Cosmetic Arts. The only place that I have ever found Cosmetic Arts is at Ross Dress For Less stores. Occasionally, I’ll find Cosmetic Arts polishes in a card stock display. Sometimes I just find the bottles loose on the shelves. These two blues are my most recent acquirements…

These two polishes were not found in a display. And, if they had been in a display, I would have found that these two are actually matte finish polishes…

After I discovered that they were mattes, I wanted to experiment with some looks. The turquoise shade is not a favorite, or even a like, of mine. So, I wanted to find something I did like about it. The blue was OK matte and with a shiny top coat. I was OK either way.

So, here is were I played: I painted each color on two different nails on the nail wheel. For a third look, I painted a nail with Cult Nail’s ‘Nevermore’, which is the best one-coat black polish out there.

This is the looks I got with the blue…

First nail is two coats without any top or bottom coat. Then, the middle nail is with 2 coats of color and one top coat from Color Club. The far right one is with one bottom coat of ‘Nevermore’ and one coat of said blue shade polish. (None of the Cosmetic Arts polishes are named or numbered.) The blue over the black didn’t really do anything other than give the black a matte finish.

I did the same with the turquoise shade…

I didn’t care for the turquoise over the black at all. Look at that blech! But, I like it with the shiny top coat, in the middle.

Even though I didn’t truly get the looks I wanted with using ‘Nevermore’ as a base coat, I also couldn’t find any uniqueness about these two blues to warrant any oohs and aahs.

How about you? Do any of these nails keep you from feeling blue?
