Sally Hansen Blue Me Away

Today I give to you Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Blue Me Away. Quite a mouthful, eh? It's my first Xtreme Wear. There was this lovely, captivating display of XW's at my CVS, and I couldn't resist. I bought two colors, as there was a sale, and I plan to go back soon and get more. Yay for nail polish! ;)
Of COURSE I would buy Blue Me Away. I mean, look at it! It's sky blue! Durr.
This is a very lurvely sky blue. It is way brighter and deeper than any other sky blues I have. I promise that I'll do a swatch test soon of all the sky blues I have. I want to buy China Glaze Sky High Tops first though. BMA might be close to Sky High Tops. China Glaze Caribbean Blue has nothing on it in terms of intensity (I still lurve my Caribbean Blue though), and the same is true for Essie Shelter Island. I have a couple of other sky blues, just can't remember them right now.
This polish really was strong, very happy about that. I had just been wearing a bunch of colors that chipped in ridiculously short amounts of time before I put this on, so a strong polish made me happy. :) It also covered very well, perfect in 2 coats. Yay for intensity! :)


  1. That is such a gorgeous blue. I really like this on you. Very pretty. I hate fast chipping polish. especially if it's a more expensive one. I bought about 20 or so of Extreme Wear a month ago. Unfortunately this one wasn't one of them I'll have to get this. I love the color.

  2. Lucy - Wow, you bought a LOT! :O You must have bought the whole store out! Haha. But I guess you'll have to make it 21, b/c this really is beautiful. :)

  3. I have this one and love it! It was kind of a pain to take off though. Made my fingers look like Smurfs.

  4. Nosaby - Yeah, isn't it great? :) I didn't have the smurf-finger problem though.

  5. this is a GREAT polish! I just bought it and painted my toenails in this lovely color :-)
