|tried to get the photo as close to the color as possible.|
After wearing my pastel watermarble for Easter, I decided something bright was in order. I went with China Glaze Blue Sparrow, a neon blue jelly with teal/light blue micro glitter. I had worn this color previously before and dismissed it as a problem child.
My problem with this polish was how runny it was. It loooooves to pool in cuticles so be wary when applying. Also it needs at least 3 coats to be even. I even wore Sally Hansen Xtreme in White On, thinking i could get away with only 2 coats of Blue Sparrow. No dice, I still used 3 coats. The first coat goes on patchy as hell but the second one goes evenly. Since it is a neon, it dries matte and a little gritty because of the glitter. I definitely recommend a top coat for this polish.
Here is a closeup of the bottle. Look at all that glitter!!! It's funny, in the bottle Blue Sparrow looks milky, almost creamy but is definitely a jelly. Also it kept photographing super light but it's not. It is a little darker than the photos would lead you to believe. Since the glitter is actually light blue instead of silver, it doesn't "twinkle" as much.
I'm still not sure how I feel about this color. I love how blues look on other people but I'm not totally crazy about them on me. I prefer greens, I think... That being said, Blue Sparrow is a pretty color that has a problem formula. I think I might try layering it with UO Dust, with looks to be a dupe for Deborah Lippman Today Was a Fairytale. If I do, I will update this post.
I will try to update, but I have a friend from Brasil visiting, so that may not happen. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
