Review: the Face Shop Nail Polish in BL604

Product: The Face Shop Nail Polish in BL604


It a very, very dark royal blue (looks like a very fine liquid metallic dark blue) which I love! (I LOVE DARK NAIL POLISH COLORS! ESPECIALLY BLUE ONES!) It looks almost like black from a distant glance.

- dries quite fast
- doesn't have the strong nail polish smell.
- color true to the bottle.
- the color is vibrant even w/o top coat.
- large quantity (11 ml in a bottle)
- lasts for a week or more!! (To think that I do heavy chores everyday!)

- quite expensive (P95, but I'm not complaining because i love dark colors!!!)

= Dark colors, especially blue (at least for me) will make your hands look whiter and elegant without looking emo. (no pun intended to emos)
= Want to try dark colors, but is scared of black? Try blue.
= Dark red (wine red, ruby red, true red, etc.) makes your hands look elegant, but older...try it. If you're in your teens to early twenties, paint a dark red color on your nails, it will look funny..Like you borrowed your mother's beautifully manicured hands. I've tried it many times and I still can't pull it off...Maybe when I'm 25..I'll try again...My sister-in-law can pull off this color already.

On with the pictures!!!
