Why I love water-based nail polish & how to use it!
Today I have a swatch of metallic blue water based nail polish by Acquarella. This brilliant blue color called Shalom was released as part of Acquarella’s Holiday 2012 collection. They also released a shimmery green color called Donner. I skipped Donner, since I already have Wicked by Acquarella, which is also a shimmery green.
Blue is my all-time favorite color of nail polish, so I could not pass it up when I saw Shalom. I was delighted with how this water based nail polish looked on my nails! It almost matches the shade of my car’s paint.
For comparison, here is a swatch of another blue from Acquarella. This is Mahalo, which is a creme blue.
Mahalo was my favorite color of water based nail polish, before I got Shalom. Now I have a new favorite!

Which nail polish finish do you prefer? The super shiny metallic finish or the softer creme finish?
