Wet N Wild Blue Visionary is a great dark turquoise with light blue shimmer that I picked up recently. Applies kinda frosty so I needed to be careful with strokemarks. It also was really thin and needed four coats for full opacity. While I don't mind building for coverage, or even layering for less coats, it was really watery and needed very thin coats or the polish would shift on the nail and sometimes pool at the edges.
To my delight, however, I noticed that it is a duochrome and it flashes purple in some lights.
So I tried to see if in different lights and angles if it would translate onto the nail!
Maybe a little? Not much that I could tell. Mostly just beautiful blue and turquoise duochrome. Which is fine since I have nothing like it in my stash.
Or do I? O_o
The two closest to it are Sally Hansen Calypso Blue and Sally Hansen Teal Steel. Yes I marked the picture Sinful Colors originally. I also deleted the original so I had no way to fix it other than mark it out. Sorry everyone!
Wet N Wild Blue Visionary is an medium aqua with blue shimmer and theoretical purple duochrome. Thin formula, opaque with four coats. $1.99/0.45oz. Wet N Wild is cruelty free.
Sally Hansen Calypso Blue is a darker aqua with turquoise shimmer. Easy to work with formula, opaque in 3 coats. $7.99/0.5oz.
Sally Hansen Teal Steel is a sheer turquoise with aqua shimmer. Runny, thin. Can't make it opaque without a bajillion layers. Price is in between the two above.
I think Sally Hansen Calypso Blue, while being the most expensive and not cruelty free, is the prettiest color and easiest to work with. The others are closer and if you're a cruelty free beauty, then Wet N Wld Blue Visionary is a close second!
