Stash Swatch Initiative: Brash Blue Dream


Today I have a new-to-me brand. This is Brash Blue Dream.

This polish was a birthday gift, and I'm quite pleased with it! It's a lovely bright blue creme. Swatches today are a base coat of Seche Clear, two thick coats of Blue Dream, and one coat of NYC In a New York Minute.

The formula leaves a little to be desired. It is thin, not well-pigmented, and a bit runny. It is streaky too. However, it self-levels wonderfully, and I was able to get away with using two very thick coats. Otherwise, I'd think you'd need to use three or four thin coats. The brush on this bottle is strange. It's cut at an angle so it's tapered to one side. Once I got the hang of it, it worked out nicely. I was able to use the narrow end for good control close to my cuticles.

A quick internet search tells me this is Payless Shoe Stores' brand of cosmetics, which are available in select Payless stores. I'd never think to look for nail polish there! Even with it's tricky formula, Blue Dream was a nice surprise. I love the color!
