Nina Ultra Pro Cobalt & Comparison

I'm going to declare that my favorite color is cobalt blue. I think I've almost purchased every cobalt blue nail polish out there. I cannot get enough of this color. I think what draws me to that color is how it is both rich and bright at the same time. It just makes me happy. Since it's Monday, and Mondays are rather blah, I will share a cobalt blue I picked up recently. Cobalt=happy. I am implanting that in your minds. Whenever your see cobalt blue you will feel happy. I'm so weird.

Nina Ultra Pro Cobalt



Cobalt is well... a cobalt blue jelly!

Yeah, this is a amazing. 

The end.

Just kidding! As you can see Nina Ultra Pro has changed their bottles, this includes the brushes. You know the brushes in the new Wet n' Wild Megalast bottles? They have the same brushes in these. They are really wide. Personally, I have trouble with these brushes, but some people like them. I was willing to compromise for this amazing color. After the fact, I figured I'd get some questions about how this compares to other blue jellies, so I did a comparison swatches on nail wheel below using Revlon Royal, Nina Ultra Pro Cobalt, and China Glaze Ride the Waves.

No dupes here!

This color is beautiful. It is bright and rich. The formula I thought was great too. Awesome blue. I have no complaints, other than the brush isn't my cup of tea. I got this at Sally Beauty Supply. It's in the core line!


Happy Monday!

  4. I wore this color last week! Love it! I do wish it had worn a little better, I got tip wear faster than I expected, even though I wrapped my tips. I also just bought Revlon's Royal hoping I have a little better wear when I use it.

  14. Steph, I can see why you have a soft spot for cobalts - they look so vivid on you! Your manicure is absolutely perfect. Beautiful!


    Thanks for the comparison swatches of other blues. Although they're all lovely, I prefer the Nina Ultra Pro - bright and bold!
