Oh So Blue!

Right now I'm really into blue shades of polish. Anything remotely sky blue and I'm drawn to it.
My favourite blue shades currently include Essie, Topshop, Maybelline and China Glaze.
Essie Bikini So Teeny is a cornflower blue shade with subtle silver shimmer. I bought this from Fragrance Direct a while back and its well worth the £1.99. Its opaque in two coats and doesn't streak - really lovely!
Essie Maximillian Strasse-Her is a recent purchase again from Fragrance Direct. Its a grey creme with blue-green undertones, great consistency and opaque in two coats. This is from the spring 2013 range!
China Glaze Sea Spray is one I've had for a while. The formula is great but the brush is quite thin. I'm not sure if they've changed since. Its a blue grey creme, slightly lighter and more blue toned than Essie Maximillian Strasse-Her so not really a dupe but they're fairly close.
Maybelline Forever Strong Pro in Ceramic Blue is also a recent purchase - its currently 99p at Fragrance Direct. Ceramic Blue is a pale blue shade with lilac shimmer. Its a very pretty shade but the formula is really thin and needs 2-3 coats to be fully opaque. Finally, Topshop Tidal is a pale grey/blue creme. The consistency is on the thicker side but it dries quickly and only need two coats. I love this shade so much, it reminds me of a really grey day buts its a really soft shade and works well with my pale skin tone.
