Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Co-bolt Blue

Well, don't I feel like a schlemiel.

This is formulated to be only one coat. I peeled the paper off the back of the bottle, and voila, there it was in black and white.  Well, it's exciting, non-the-less.

I love this strong, bold, shiny cobalt blue. It goes on smoothly. But take care. If it's not entirely dry, it can make a big staining mess on the skin. 

I have Sally Hansen Continuous Growth on my nails, then essie Ridge Filler.  Having 2 base coats stops most of the staining on my nails.

Oh, pretty color!

Before I painted my nails with Co-bolt Blue, I did some swirl experimenting.

I took several different stripers and painted lines from cuticle to tip.

This is the only nail that worked out:
Please pardon the dry skin. I was putting on and taking off polish to try and get this right.
I tried to make stripes with a dotting tool from right to left but that wasn't working out.

With this nail, I just sort of swirled it with the dotter.  Not sure I could recreate it again.
I topped it with one coat of Confetti Ice Ice Baby. (Because glitter makes everything better!)

Olivia-I really like that this formula is highly pigmented. Glad you liked the swirl design! I love glittter! Can you tell? ;p

thalie-I know what you mean. There are some polishes I know wouldn't look right on me. If you make a swirly nail, I want to see it! Thanks for your comments!

Emily-Thanks for your comments. One thing I do remember about the swirl is I kept cleaning or swiping the dotter on a paper towel in between swipes on my nail.

Thanks for stopping by ladies!
