Navy Shimmer Comparison

While cleaning out my folders full of nail photos, I came across this navy shimmer comparison I did in the fall.  I've never actually done a comparison post before, but I figured these swatches weren't doing anyone any good hiding on my hard drive, so I'm sharing!  :)

I always say that my favourite colour is purple, but navy is a very close second, (if not a secret first.)  I wear way too much navy... That is, if there were such a thing as too much navy... Which I'm inclined to think there isn't.  It's such a classic colour that really goes with everything!  (And I'm a firm advocate that yes, navy even goes with black!!)  The most recent addition to my wardrobe?  These adorable navy velvet polka-dot pants from J. Crew; love them!! 

After all that, it should come as no surprise that I also own more than my fair share of navy polishes.  Here I've just compared the shimmers, but I've got at least two or three navy cremes as well.  Here we go!

Index to pinky, we've got Butter London Big Smoke (2 coats), LaCC 1974 (2 coats), Miss Ashleigh In The Navy (1 coat), and piCture pOlish Electric Blue (1 coat).  All swatches are without top coat.

The shimmer in Big Smoke is obviously lighter, and it's more brushtroke-y than the others.  1974 has a slightly darker base than the rest, and the shimmer is more coarse and irregular which gives it a slightly different look.  In The Navy and Electric Blue are almost identical dupes with a lovely smooth glowy shimmer, although I may venture to say that the shimmer in Electric Blue glows just a tiny bit more.  

As for my recommendation, it depends what is most important to you.  As much as I love Butter London, Big Smoke falls short of the others here because it lacks the same depth of colour.  Miss Ashleigh In The Navy and piCture pOlish  Electric Blue are both one-coaters, but have slightly thicker formulas that require a careful hand to apply evenly.  The formula on LaCC 1974 is flawless, but it does require that second coat.  
Do you have a preference here?  Or another favourite navy polish I should check out?  Let me know in the comments!  :)

  3. that oral therapies filed and I think there's misconception that if you in dole's yourself by taking too many medications at the beginning at the disease that by run out or steam and then you're left with nothing else so that’s not indeed the case at all the medications will last I'm according to the duration of time and there’s no penalty for taking too .
