Pardon my heinous tipwear and the chip on my index nail - amazingly, we've had two days in a row of overcast, cloudy skies, so these photos are from the third day of wear.
Bluey had the typical Butter London application - that is, it's damn near flawless. Cleanup wasn't too bad even for as dark a polish as this is. I saw a recent swatch of this polish last night (I'm way too far behind on my nail blog reading) - and that post said there was a gold shimmer to Bluey, but I could not see it or capture it at all. I do get tons of teal from it, though.
The thing is, even though Bluey is undeniably pretty I just can't convince myself that this polish is all that unique - I have an untried Nina Ultra Pro (called Un-Teal You or something like that), that I think would look pretty similar to Bluey. Still, the application is a huge win, so even if it turns out to be a complete dupe, I'm keeping this one.
