BYS: Alaskan Blue

*Sigh*. This is the last of my vacation manis - but I think it's a good one!

Alaskan Blue caught my eye when I spied it in the almighty wall of BYS polish at Cosmetics Plus and it completely wowed me when I wore it cos:  I love blues, greens, metallics, foils and this shade has it all!  Alaskan Blue sounds like a cold name but I thought it was a wonderful summery aquatic polish, and I'd describe the colour as aquamarine blue.  Two coats applied neatly and easily and the result was eye-catching and very photogenic.  See what you think...

Summer shade or winter shade??

That's it for now.

    1. Now you've got me thinking! I agree Alaskan Blue doesn't seem right - maybe more like Tahitian Blue Paradise?

    1. Oooh yes! It would lovely in winter - I think it would have more of a deep jewel toned feel against paler winter skin :)

  6. Ok that's a hard one. The colour can be termed as a Summer shade but the finish - it's sort of sparkly so makes it a Winter shade. Hmm...both seasons I guess! ;)

  7. Oh, I think it would be perfect for both summer and winter! Kind of like beautiful seas, but also jewel tones for icy winter. I like it!
