Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Miami Heat is really bright blue, verging on “royal” that retails for $2.50. Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Color in Pacific Blue is an OP/Ocean Pacific early 90’s kind of blue that goes for under $3. Rad.

I haven’t tried any of these shades. In fact, I’m a little scared of how these blues will look against my slightly yellow complexion. Have any of you guys tried any of these? What do you think? And if you have any more to add to this list, please share!
