H&M "Blue my mind"

The other day I found this blog post about Nails Inc.Baker Street“, and I fell completely in love. So, my first thought was “is there any dupe out there?”. Well, there is, but I couldn’t get my hands on it yesterday so I found a very good replacement thanks to Roberta from Smaltoitaliano: H&M‘s “Blue my mind“.
What can I say? This is a stunning blue! Sadly my pictures don’t do him justice, because the colour is so vibrant that my camera didn’t pick it up. You have to imagine this kind of blue but with a touch of purple…it’s kind of a vibrant blurple :D Actually, it looks pretty similar to “Baker Street”, it’s just a bit lighter.
Anyway, the formula of “Blue my mind” is fine, just a bit thicker than other polishes I’m used to, but not impossible to work with. The only thing I really hate about it is the brush, it makes application so unpleasant >.<
In these pictures I used two coats. Let me know what you think about it!
L’altro giorno ho trovato questo post riguardo lo smalto “Baker Street” della Nails Inc., e me ne sono innamorata. Il mio primo pensiero dunque è stato se ci fosse qualche possibile dupe nei paraggi. Bé, ce ne sono, ma non avendo potuto comprarlo subito, ho trovato un ottimo rimpiazzo in “Blue my mind” della H&M, su suggerimento di Roberta di Smaltoitaliano.
Che dire? E’ un colore spettacolare! Purtroppo le mie foto non rendono giustizia a questo gioiellino, poichè il colore è troppo acceso per la mia povera macchina fotografica. Quindi dovrete provare ad immaginare questo colore con un accenno di viola, sempre molto acceso. E’ effettivamente simile al “Baker Street”, solo un po’ più chiaro.
Lo smalto in sé non mi ha dato problemi, solo che la consistenza è un filo più densa degli smalti a cui sono abituata, ma niente di grave. L’unica cosa che davvero detesto di questi smalti è il pennello, che mi rende sempre nervosa quando applico lo smalto (questione di gusti, eh!).
In queste foto vedete due passate di smalto. Fatemi sapere cosa ne pensate!

  • This is my absolute favourite blurple! You’ve taken excellent pictures of it too. :D :D

  • super pretty blue!

  • gorgeous! my favourite colour blue polish !

  • You did an amazing job with capturing the colour! Great work! Even if there isn’t the tiny hint of purple, this is by far the best capturing of this colour I’ve ever seen. You should see my pictures of it. It looks like a light sky blue, horrible. -.-

  • So vivid! I wonder how close it is to that new Rescue Beauty fan color? The only polish close in color is Color Club Chelsea Girl, but it’s a jelly.

  • A me pare invece che le foto rendano benissimo…quel blu è quasi accecante!
