H&M Blue My Mind



Oh neon blue, my old nemesis. My favourite colour to wear and my least favourite to photograph. This one's worth the effort, though:


Two coats. I've used a topcoat but the polish (surprisingly for a semi-neon) dries glossy in any case. It pools a little at the cuticles because it's a thick creme but the brush makes it very easy to control, I had barely any clean up. H&M polishes are only £2.99 and while the quality isn't the best I've tried (I tend to get wear after 2-3 days), for the price they're pretty unbeatable.

And the colour? Drooooool. Very very bright mid-blue with a hint of violet. It's really gloriously loud and opaque.

(If any of you are into mosaic, there's a bright blue smalti tile that matches this colour. It was my favourite when I was a kid, I used to use it in every craft project going. So I'm pleased to be able to wear that colour on my nails!)

So pretty! since i can't afford the high end nail polish, should i buy nailpolishes from h&m? or are there any other better quality nailpolish i can get? :)

That's a beauty of a blue. I rarely see any H&M polishes. Your nails are so pretty and look even more so with this polish. I don't live near any H&M. Is there a dupe to this? Hope so!

Love this polish, but it's incredible hard to photograph also for my camera!!! ;)

Interesting when it comes to making color paints/polishes and what pigments for sure will go matte if they are neon vs. which will not if they are still neon. This is a lovely blue!

Lucy - sorry this is so late! I think one of the Sally Hansen colours is a dupe, I remembered finding a comparison shot that looked really similar.

I think H&M polishes are great for the money. I've had better, harder wearing polishes but they do some beautiful shades and the price is really decent.
