  20. China Glaze - Frost Bite

In the bottle, Indigo is a stunning, dark blue with tiny glitter flecks. Once applied, it's still a beautiful colour but the glitter is barely noticeable. To get it to resemble its appearance in the bottle, something like Fairy Dust works well.

Kotori is such a pretty blue glitter. Because of how sheer it is, it'd take several coats to make it opaque, it's best used as a glittery finish to another polish.

Blue Sparrow dries very matte. It works best when used with a very glossy topcoat.

The picture and even the nail wheel don't do Frost Bite justice. A bright, metallic blue that almost glows once it's applied. One of my favourite blues.

  1. Color Club - 220 Volts
  2. China Glaze - Blue Island Iced Tea
  3. OPI - DS Glamour
  4. Zoya - Tallulah
  5. China Glaze - 2Nite
  6. China Glaze - Rainstorm
  7. China Glaze - Carribean Blue
  8. China Glaze - Bahamian Escape
  9. OPI - Sea Ya Later, Sailor
  10. OPI - Last Friday Night

Rainstorm, Sea Ya Later, Sailor & Last Friday Night are all sheer with glitter. LFN boasts the bigger glitter flecks. Rainstorm has more of a coloured base than the other two shades.

You'll need about three coats of Carribean Blue to get good coverage. Whilst it's not really a sheer, it isn't completely opaque.

Both DS Glamour & 2Nite are holographic.
