Hey everyone! Today's Manicure Monday is another color from the Deborah Lippmann Spring 2014 collection of lovely pastels. I'm sure I've mentioned this several times before, but I adore pastel nail polish. It's such an easy way to wear "crazy" colors while still looking feminine and chic and today's manicure is a perfect example of that. Blue Orchid is the perfect cornflower blue the welcome the fresh spring days to come.
One of the things I like best about this particular pale blue is that it's not too minty or turquoise like a lot of shades I already own. It runs much more neutral and not too bright. Also the wear has been really amazing, not having any chips until nearly an entire week after application.
Here I used a base of OPI Nail Envy, 2 coats of Blue Orchid, and Seche Vite Top Coat to seal it all in. The coverage was impressive and didn't need too much fussing to get good opacity.
Overall I absolutely am in love with this color and have gotten several compliments on it this week. For those of you looking for a true sky blue shade without any green tones in it, you won't be disappointed with Blue Orchid. You can find this available now at Nordstrom, Sephora, and Neiman Marcus for $18.
