Sapphire Blue Nail Polish

Thursday, March 24, 2011

This post is long overdue. A few weeks ago, my doctor sent me to buy some really expensive antibiotics for my breast cyst. During that time, I still had no idea wether or not it was benign so I was really pretty depressed about it. Add to the fact that one week of my antibiotics cost me almost P3000/$70! Money I would much rather have spent on a pair of shoes.

Anyway, while waiting along the counter for my prescription to be filled, my wandering eye caught a glimpse of a beautiful blue shade in a tiny bottle. The color made me feel happy despite it being blue so I quickly grabbed the tiny vial and added it to my purchases.

It was the perfect shade of blue, the blue I have been obsessed about this entire year, the blue that goes so well with coral, and it only cost me P24/ $0.50! Bonus points, it lifted my "pharmacy depression".
La belle polish in Sapphire

I immediately tried it on. I am no way a nail polish expert, I hardly buy any, I just sometimes dabble but I've tried some of the better ones in the market like OPI and Chanel which cost an arm and a leg, but you get what you pay for. La belle is exactly worth it's P24 price tag. You need to put on 2-3 thick coats to achieve the desired shade plus it takes forever to dry and chips off very easily probably cause you have to apply it on super thick. Despite that, it's cheap, I'm not picky and I really love the color, so I'm happy :)

I'll probably invest in a better bottle of polish in the same color after this one runs out but because it's only P24, I have no regrets and I still love it. I bought my bottle in South Star Drug along Wilson Street. :)

Such a beautiful shade! At the risk of sounding extremely blonde can I ask what 'P24' means?
