This is an extremely belated NOTD post but a couple of months ago when I picked up my little ORLY nail polish goodie bag from the Beauty and Spa Expo one of the shades included was Blue Collar. I'm not one to wear such a bold colour like this by itself so I decided to pair it with a Ruby Wing Colour Changing Nail Polish - not quite sure of the shade name as there's no name on it.
As much as I love the colour blue, I've only ever worn it a couple of times. I find that blue is a little too loud for my liking (and my personality) therefore often shy away and choose a pink instead. As you can tell from the photos of my manicure - blue is such a difficult shade to work with. It might also be due to the fact that I can't paint very well but either way you without a doubt will be able to see all the mistakes you've made when completing your manicure. I lasted one full day with this colour until I decided that I needed to change it as I just couldn't stop fixating on the mistakes!
But enough ramble about my uninteresting problems and let's move onto the polish itself. Blue Collar is a lovely sky blue creme which only took two coats to reach full opacity and it dried with a beautiful glossy finish.
At first glance it reminded me of Sally Hansen's Blue Me Away and for a good reason - these two look almost the same! So if you you never get the chance to try out ORLY's Blue Collar just get your hands on Sally Hansen's Blue Me Away.
I'd love to know how you guys wear blue nail polishes as I just can't seem to figure out a way to wear them without looking horrible! So suggestions are very welcome!
