For the time being, this blog has slightly turned into a journey through independent brand nail polish. It's just too big to ignore, and so many polishes are too good to do the same. In all honestly, the larger bulk of independent polishes I can resist, but Cu Blue is one I had to have when I saw it. It's made by Girly Bits, a pretty brand belonging to Pam, who is located in Canada. Pam is one of the at the moment creators who doesn't necessarily put huge glitters in all her polishes, and being a shimmer fan, I can much appreciate this. Take a look.
This is four coats of Cu Blue, of which at least two could be described as generous (it doesn't bubble!). Frankly, painting with this particular shade wasn't what I'd call a breeze, but the end result is so worth it. Dark blue jelly? Yes please. Copper shimmer? Sign me up. I love this color combination, and I ended up wearing this polish for several days without wanting to repaint - the wear was actually very good, which isn't always the case with my nails. In these photos, there are a few scratch and dangs present, because I didn't photograph this manicure immediately, but hopefully you can all tell the beauty of the product beneath my topcoat. Of course, since this is a jelly, you should wrap your tips more carefully than I've done here, to eliminate the sheerness at the very edge.
If you would like to check out Girly Bits more closely, you will find Pam's shop at Big Cartel, and also on Llarowe.
