Navy Nail Trend with China Glaze Indian Ocean

I will be the first to admit I know next to nothing about nail polish. And I will also admit that I am rather boring when it comes to nail color. Until recently I only did french manicures---I know I know, I'm sure all you nail polish aficionados are appalled by my backward lackluster nail habits and ready to throw me out of the beauty blogasphere. But wait....I can change...I wore red last week and just look how I have embraced the latest trend! And what a gorgeous trend it is. I never would have thought navy nail polish could look so classy and trendy at the same time. China Glaze has created a very complex shade--Indian Ocean is a deep indigo blue with a black base, and yet one coat showed deep purple on my nails and with two coats I got this lovely rich deep blue with a lovely slight pearl sheen to it. It's both dark and bright if that's possible. This is really out of my comfort zone, but I feel hip wearing it and after 3 days I have developed an affection for this color. I was worried blue nails would make me look like a corpse or very very cold but me thinks it looks very classy. If this is what the Indian Ocean looks like, I'm booking  my next vacation there! Would you or do you wear blue nail polish? Let me know in the comments.

After some research, I found out Indian Ocean is an older polish but still available at salons victoria nail supply.
