I've got the blues

Julie G Dance in the Dark gives me the blues. Why? Because it's blue.

Now many of you may not think that's such a bad thing. Honestly I wouldn't think it a bad thing either except that I thought I was getting a purple polish when I bought it. Really, it appeared to be a blue-leaning purple in the store but when I started applying it all I got was blue. Blue blue BLUE.

I suppose it's not a bad blue but it wasn't what I was expecting at all :(

That isn't my camera turning it blue. It really is a deep, vibrant blue. This is two coats, taken in full sun.

Obviously I wasn't happy with with the color so I topped it with Essie Shine of the Times.

Sparkles are usually a sure-fire way to cheer up :)

I've had this happen too :( makeup stores have really crappy lighting and color DOES matter in makeup (specially nailpolish). Hopefully this polish will grown on you with time~
