I (reluctantly) just removed this color from my nails. Why? Well, I have a big job interview tomorrow afternoon and bright cobalt blue on my nails probably wouldn’t be the most appropriate choice. Luckily, this photo I took earlier allows me to treasure Frostbite even when I’m not wearing it.
I’ve been on the hunt for a color like this for months. It’s surprisingly difficult to find a true cobalt blue with shimmer. Instead, I usually come across navys or other deep blues within that realm. Frostbite definitely isn’t navy though. It’s bright, in your face, and totally perfect. Wait, I take that back. There’s one downside that makes this varnish not-so-perfect - the smell. This stuff STINKS! I’m not referring to the typical “nail polish smell” either. This is on a whole ‘nother level my friends. Imagine what a skunk smells like. Now, combine that scent with the “normal” nail polish smell we’re all familiar with. THAT’S Frostbite. Not very pleasant, but it’s a gorgeous color and exactly what I’ve been looking for, so I’m willing to open a window and hold my breath a little.
