Dark Blue Shimmer Comparison

I realized I have just enough dark blue shimmers to make a comparison post. =) Here are the actors (from L to R): China Glaze Up All Night, Catrice It Blue My Mind, MNY 665 and Essence Deep Blue Sea.

First of all, let's take a look at the color drops.

And on my nails in the same order. I applied two coats of each.

They might look alike in the bottles, but there's a whole other story when you apply them on nails.

China Glaze - Up All Night is the darkest of these four. It looks almost black on low lighting. The application was superb and this polish was almost completely opaque in one coat. Love it!

Catrice - It Blue My Mind is my favorite. It's the kind of blue that's dark enough but it never looks black. It's packed with gorgeous electric blue shimmer. The application is really easy and did I mention I love Catrice's brush? You can't go wrong with this one. It's a must have.

MNY - 665 is a midnight blue. Not too much to say about this one. OK application, OK opacity.

Essence - Deep Blue Sea is a middle choice bewteen ChG Up All Night and Catrice. Really pretty and the quality is great too.

In my Crappy:

I got a package from Marsha. She sent me these beauties:

Can't wait to try them. Thank you so much, Marsha! I love them all. =*

Thanks for looking!


  1. That Catrice polish is gorgeous. I love it. It's hard to find a dark blue that doesn't look black in low light.

  2. They are all gorgeous but I really want the Up All Night

  3. Catrice for me. Because it's blue. If I want black I'll buy black.

  4. I like the Catrice and the Essence. They are all beautiful but those are my two faves.

  5. The China Glaze is very pretty is the most lovely for me almost black

  6. Up all night mi je predivan, jedan od najljepsih plavih lakova ikada. Ali daj mi reci dal se i tebi on jako dugo susi? Cula sam na par strana da se po par sati nece osusiti a i meni je se ni preko noci nije normalno posusio, jos su ostajale crtice po njemu kad bi zagrebala :/

  7. I agree. The Catrice is clearly the standout winner in this group

  8. Ne, meni se je sušil tako kot katerikoli drug China Glaze lak. Sem pa preko nanesla hitrosušeči nadlak.

  9. oh the Catrice one looks amazing! Lemming created!

    As you can see on my picture

  11. Love love love the Catrice! It Blue My Mind...perfect name =)

  12. Aaaa, vsi so noro lepi!

  13. Yep, I saw that. Perfect marbling! :)

  14. uh, teli modri lakci so mi pa najlepši:) doma imam Barry M -navy je tudiii takooo leeep:) ... pa samo en nanos je potreben:)... kateri od teh modrih lakcov k si jih predstavila ti je pa najboljši?

  15. I love a deep blue. The Catrice is really devine. I've never seen this brand before today. I saw this on another blog. I like that it's deep blue and not black looking.
