Ulta nail polish in Blues Cruise

Blues Cruise is one of Ulta's own brand of nail polish, and these can often be found on sale, both online and in their brick and mortar stores.   Blues Cruise  is a beautiful blue glitter suspended in a lightly blue-tinted jelly.  The pictures show it as leaning purple, but in real life it's a true royal blue.  I had to adjust the color values a bit to get the true color of the polish to show, so please forgive the weirdly-colored fingers! :) Swatches are, from pinky to index, one, two, three and four coats.

It's beautiful, but because of the glitter removal, this one is probably going to be used strictly for layering.


  1. It's pretty. I picked up the same color but haven't tried it out yet. I really don't like how textured it looks though. Hopefully a coat or two of top coat will help with that.

  2. RichInHeart, have you tried using Gelous basecoat as a topcoat? It works wonders!
