Hi guys, welcome to Thursday. It's a pretty typical day around here, work, warm weather, and storms. I'm trying to decide whether to go up to Chicago this weekend but I'm pretty undecided at this point :) Wow, that's probably the most interesting intro I've ever wrote (insert sarcasm here).
Today I have a very well known polish that is at the height of its controversy at the moment. If you are unfamiliar, Sally Hansen Pacific Blue is a cult classic polish with a fantastic color and formula. Recently and without warning, Sally Hansen changed this polish, keeping the name, to a shimmery blue with a bad formula so I've heard. I'm keeping my mouth shut on the whole situation, but I wanted to show you the color that everyone is talking about.
So as a polish, Pacific Blue rocks. I thought the formula was smooth and buttery and I needed two easy coats for my swatches. I originally bought this color as a substitute for Essie Butler Please, which has a terrible formula and chips within hours on me. I wore this polish for a day and didn't even have tip wear. The color above is the true color, I had a normal swatch with the bottle but it ended up looking crazy neon and bright and I didn't feel comfortable showing that :)
When I wore this polish, I wore accent nails on my ring finger and thumb using dots in multiple colors. I ended up choosing China Glaze Highlight of my Summer, Barielle Topless in St Tropez, and Barielle Paradise in the Tropics.
Ultimately, if you want this polish, I would head out ASAP and try to find it at the drugstore. I looked for it and found the new polish but several of these older bottles hidden behind them. What do you think about this polish situation?
