In the Navy: A dark blue polish for every budget – from bling to broke: Lancome, Catrice, OPI, NYC

By Beaut.ie | September 17 2012 | 17 Comments

Just as make up and fashion changes with the season so too does nail polish, neons and candy brights make way for deeper, more autumnal offerings.

One of the colours set to be big this A/W is blue, whether cobalt, federal or navy, there’s sure to be a corresponding polish.

From budget to blow out, there’s a navy blue for every budget and I have the  down low should you want to try the look.

NYC Expert Last Nail Polish in Ink Stain – €1.99
The Cheapest of my polish picks is Ink Stain from NYC. This budget brand has impressed me greatly time and again with their formulation and longevity on the nail. Ink Stain is a vibrant, shimmering navy blue thatcatches the light beautifully. It’s a real steal for less that €2.

Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer in George Blueney – €2.79
Another fantastic budget brand when it comes to polish is Catrice. Their brush shape make application a piece of cake and the lasting power of their polish is fantastic. George Blueney is a rich denim blue with silver micro shimmer, isn’t it purrty?

 

OPI Germany Collection in Unfor-Gretta-Bly Blue – €10.50
Probably my favourite of the navy round up, Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue is from the brand new Germany collection. It’s a jewel tone, über shiny navy blue that almost leans green in the sunshine. It applies like a dream and stays put for up to 6 days. Ich liebe es!

Lancôme Vernis In Love Nail Varnish Bleu De Flore – €17.50
The most expensive of the bunch, Lancôme’s Bleu De Flore is also the shiniest of the lot. A rich tealy, navy blue, it’s flatteringly subtle and will complement just about any autumnal outfit.

Are you a navy nail lover? Are there any more I should check out?
