Claire's Mood Polish - Flirty/Shy

Hello Ladies,

Today I have one of Claire's mood polishes that I picked up late summer, Flirty/Shy.

This has to be one of my favorite colours from the mood selection at Claire's, it's so bright and the color change is really noticeable unlike some others.

cold hands

In my photos I used 2 coats with a base and topcoat. The polish goes on as a deep cornflower blue, but dries to a deep indigo, think Orly - Bailamos. As you know these polishes dry to a matte/suede finish so you will have to add a top coat if you want a glossy look.

run under hot water

The colour when warm is slightly off, I find it to be a bit more brighter, they are both very pretty :) no visible nail line either ( you can see some slightly in the photo)

If you look real closely you can still see some glitter that didn't want to leave from Mrs. Clause!

The only thing I dislike about these polishes are the wear. I have been wearing this polish for 2 days, and already on the first full day I got a chip! I haven't gotten a chip that quickly in a LONG time. I got it on my thumb, this is usually where I get my chips when I do get them.

funky French ;) my now warm hands cooling off

My trick for preventing chips? Add a topcoat of some sort. I was going to add Claire's jelly blue glitter, Twinkle, Twinkle, but then I came up with a better idea :) I'll post it up tomorrow, I'm really loving it!!

What's your favorite mood polish?


  1. Love this polish, wish I could get it!

  2. blue nail polishes seem pretty in this season =D

    I like the darker one! look really nice =D

  3. OH MAN! I want this one!! I haven't been able to find it at my local Claire's (though it's been a couple months since I checked). This looks great.

  4. This color looks so fabulous on you! I am glad I picked it up when I found it, I think it is the perfect shade of blue when it is at it's darkest :)
