Nails Inc Baker street. I'll admit, I have been totally coveting this polish after seeing on Beyoncé - she was on the front page of our local free newspaper when I was on my way into work, and I had to literally control myself from hollering out loud when I spied the colour she was wearing. I'm a blue fanatic (can you tell??) and this looked like it might just be approaching the imaginary fantasy blue polish that exists only in my head (and possibly in RBL IKB 2012, but I'm not coughing up $40 to find out). So after a bit of googling, I found out what it was and tracked it down on ebay - and I'm not disappointed.
It's a perfect bright yet rich cobalt, leaning slightly violet as cobalt does, without being in any way a blurple. (It has much more of a violet undertone however than, say, Barry M Cobalt.) This was also a dream to apply - two coat creamy application and it spread like butter. I was a little worried that it might be similar to H&M blue my mind, but I compared them earlier, and this is considerably deeper and more obviously blue. It's really beautiful. If you're half way thinking about it, buy it.
This is actually an all Nails Inc mani because I have their Kensington Caviar top and base coat on, too. The top coat I'm not crazy about because of the dry time (Seche Vite has ruined me for life) but I've been using the base coat for years and it's by far the best I've tried.
In the name of SCIENCE (sort of), I went to the art and craft store today to see if the colour really *is* Cobalt. I am happy to report that it matched this acrylic paint perfectly. Well done Nails Inc!
