BB Couture Sea of Cortez

I know this is a new blog, and hence you have not seen the extend of my addiction to blue polishes. If something catches my eye, I have to pick it up. I am trying to curtail my blue polish collection, to keep from having so many dupes. I have a feeling that I am going to have to re-organize my collection to be able to notice how many of the same color I actually have. Although I am very sure that I don't have another blue like the Sea of Cortez. It is a beautiful jelly, with little green glitter. 
I knew that the color is a jelly, and I was going to try to use a white as a base, so I would not have to fight to cover the visible nail line. My brother got me some of the Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes for Christmas. Underwear was one of them. I had only heard great things about it, as how it is a one coat wonder... I think I received a bad bottle, it is a streaky mess! I even tried to add some thinner to it, to make it easier to apply, and I still could not get a good application, I did 2 coats to try to cover all the streaks, and it got worse. I forgot to take a picture so you all could see the mess it was. So that idea was scratched!
I ended up doing 3 coats of Sea of Cortez, and I was not disappointed, it is such a beautiful color!

Please forgive the quality of the pictures, I am learning as I go. I have to remember to take pictures after my nails are clean, and moisturized; so I don't look like an ashy mess.

I am taking pictures under a daylight bulb, since I mainly do my nails at night before going to sleep. I am in New York City where I feel like I have hit the lottery if I am able to see a little bit of sunlight during a day. I go to work so early that it is dark by the time I leave my house, and by the time I get off work, it is dark all over again. I can't wait for summer!!!
