Hello, sky blue!
This is quite unfamiliar territory for me: a light shade and in the colour blue. It does take some getting used to.
Kate is the only Bloom nail polish that I have, thanks to Yi. I won a little giveaway that she held a few months ago. The prize was actually Metro Chic from Sephora by OPI but Yi was so kind to surprise me by including Kate in the package too! Thanks again, Yi!
It has a creme finish. Kate reminds me of baby blue bathroom tiles, which makes sense and yet, is also strange as I've never associated nail polish with tiles before. I did three coats here to achieve opacity. The formula didn’t allow for very easy application, I thought, but there wasn’t any evidence of it by the third coat. Silly ol’ me was a bit clumsy during photography and I managed to somehow create a little dent in the corner of the ring finger (see photo below). I should have waited longer to accommodate its slower drying time. I didn’t apply a top coat over it and it chipped slightly within the first day.
Never mind. At least my sky blue nails matches the glorious blue sky outside today. I can't complain! And I read that this powder blue shade could be the next hot polish shade from Chanel. Bloom Cosmetics has been quick to declare that they already have it!
