"3 shades of blue" is one of the themes this week in the 52 Week PICK N MIX Challenge (#52WPNMC).
My 3 blues are:
Sally Hansen: #420 Pacific Blue
Deborah Lippmann: Blue Orchid
Picture Polish: Freya's Cats
What I did:
The base is Pacific Blue. Then I made stripes with the brush from the bottles of Blue Orchid and Freya's Cats. Because I don't have a top coat that doesn't destroy the foil, I applied Seche Vite (top coat) before painting the foil glue on, and applying the blue nail foil. I bought the foil from KKCenterHk.
Sally Hansen: #420 Pacific Blue looks prettier than on the photo below:
I've only read good things about Pacific Blue, and when everybody started to buy as many back up bottles they could, I got curious. And now that I'm wearing it, I must say that I really understand the hype! This is a very beautiful royal blue, and it reminds me of my dear old Dior #489 Cobalt. Sally Hansen has made a new blue polish and given it the same name. I found this bottle on eBay.

With the foil:
Freya's Cats and Blue Orchid are two of my favorite blues, but I haven't showed swatches of them yet. When I do I'll add inks here. One coat of both was enough here. Freya's cat's is created by Nihidra.
I've used Blue Orchid for nail art 3 times:
