Creative Nail Design's Blue Nirvana

Above & Below: Creative Nail Design's Blue Nirvana, with flash.

Above & Below: The color is a bit like Secret Periwinkle by China Glaze, in the same color range.

Above & Below: With no flash above, near the window. I love how 'milky' it looks in this picture. Below is again, with flash.
This is a polish I've wanted for a long time and finally remembered to order it. I don't know why I've wanted it, perhaps the name, or more likely just because of the color. It reminds my of my favorite crayon color when I was a child, Cornflower Blue. It looks to have a bit of aqua-colored shimmer in the bottle, which transfers to the nail, but it's quite subtle. It reminds me somewhat of China Glaze's Secret Periwinkle, another polish in that shade range that I love. There is no sun to be found anywhere today, so I don't know if the shimmer would show up more in sunlight or not. We received over an inch of rain last night and today is gloomy and humid. I'm happy I finally got this polish to add to my collection, and at first I thought it would be more shimmery once applied, so I was a little disappointed. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. I used three thin coats and it applied well. It dried in the usual amount of time, although I know many complain about CND's slow drying time, which I've never experienced. I wish this brand would come out with a new collection, as it seems like it's been quite a while for them.

  5. I never gave much thought to cornflower blue until my last "crush" (oh wow, how old am I again?!). He has GORGEOUS blue eyes and I couldn't think of the words to describe it until I looked at a list and swatches of different shades of blue. We're still good friends after the fallout, but I'll never think of cornflower blue the same way ever again. Isn't it awesome to get a color you waited so LONG to get!

  7. That is really a lovely blue. It looks so nice on you. I have to put that on my wish list.I remember cornflower blue in the crayon box. I used that color alot also. All the rain is good for everything you planted. We've had so much rain in NJ that I feel like I'm sprouting grass!

  8. Alexlyndra~I thought it may be a duo chrome in looking at the bottle, but sadly, it was not.

    Chrissy~thanks! It's one of m favorite shades of blue.

    Kitty~I'd say it's been about a year that I'd been wanting it, not sure why it took me so long to remember to include it in an order!

    Kae~yes, the shimmer makes it worthwhile :)

    The Asian Girl!yes, I felt instant gratification once this one was mine, finally! Aw, that's kind of a sad story about your crush :/

    Velvet~you need more Creatives, it's that simple! We got a ton of rain last night, which we needed.
