Beauty: Blue Nails

A look at my favourite blue nail polishes:

From left to right: Essie Bikini So Teeny, Topshop Marine Scene, Barry M Cobalt Blue, Essie Aruba Blue, Models Own Betty Blue

Out of all the colours in the world I would say that blue is ny favourite for nails. I think that blue nails go with everything - a bit like black only not as out of place in summer.
These are the top five blue nail polishes that I would recommend. If I could only wear blue for the rest of my life then it would be these five as they range from light to dark and can therefore move with the seasons.

Up first is Bikini So Teeny by Essie. This is a beautiful light blue colour with a slight shimmer to it. I love using it in the summer months (and it will be on my nails for my holiday in June too) as its such a bright and cheerful colour.
Topshop Marine Scene was the first Topshop nail colour I purchased and I fell in love with the formula more than anything. It's a creamy formula that settles well on your nails and doesn't chip really quickly. I can get about three days out of this colour in work without wearing a top coat.
The Cobalt Blue by Barry M was purchased around a year ago so I'm not sure if this shade still exists. It's what I would describe as a normal blue, and the consistency, longevity and overall formula is the same as the other Barry M nail varnishes - great!
My absolute favourite nail varnish ever is Essie Aruba Blue. I wear it all the time and get loads of compliments on it. It's such an easy colour to work with and like the other Essie varnish mentioned, it has a slight shimmer to it. It lasts for about 5-6 days without a top coat, or 2-3 weeks with a top coat on (depending on what I'm doing).
And finally a perfect dark blue is the Betty Blue by Models Own. I think I bought this from River Island in a set one Christmas so I'm not sure where to purchase it from separately. If you can get your hands on it though I would highly recommend. It's the perfect winter blue colour.

What's your favourite nail colour? Have you tried any of these?
