Blue Nails: The Face Shop - BL601

Hi there guys!! I hope you're having a nice day, putting this out there now, while I'll have posts for this month for a while, but I'm going to get EXTREMELY busy and this blog will definitely have less posts. I can't believe it's April and I need to get serious about my exams so really this is a warning for myself if anything. I'd like to think I'll be back regularly by my blogaversary (the dates really do line up perfectly, my exams finish the day before my blogaversary) but until then (and that's a while away), things will be slowing down (not at first). Anyway I love my blue polish and I have one here today.

BL601 is a lovely very pale blue, like it's really pale, but I like all the blue polish. It can look quite close to white, so it'd be a good base and clearly I haven't abused that factor enough.

But BL601, why no cute name? One of my complaints with The Face Shop polishes cause otherwise they're perfect. I love the colours and the glitters. This was one of my first Face Shop polishes which I got around the time my blog started and it's still brilliant as are the other polishes I got. I'm very impressed by the brand, and like everything is so adorable, I really love when things are like that :)

The formula is brilliant too, very opaque, glides on and the brush fits my nails perfectly. I used 3 coats though 2 is already very good, it's just my nails are long and the extra coat removes all streaks. Really all The Face Shop polishes I've tried have great formulas like this.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!! :)


  1. Couldn't agree more with you! Love this shade, and definitely a great base for nail arts! I have yet to *ahem* abuse mine too but soon! I hope hahhahah!! Yeah, I'd rather have names than codes... but I'd take codes anytime rather than awfully named ones. Erm, I'd wish you all the best for you exams, hope I'm not too late. But hope all things goes well :)

    1. Definitely!! Haha you should ;) it's a good shade. Hmm I don't know, I agree with you but I don't know I think names add personality, not only to the polish but to the brand (haha I'm crazy). Thank you very much, no you're not late, my exams are actually extremely soon and I'm freaking out, but hopefully I can pull myself together!! :)
