Hi friends! Are you all recovering from yesterday? I, for one, am staying home and attempting to clean my house a little. I can promise you, it is not a pretty sight! But before all that, I am back with another Color Trend post, yay!
If you remember back to the first post of the fall series, the Pantone color palette for the fall/winter season included two blue shade: Royal Blue (in the form of Essie Style Cartel) and Bright Cobalt, the featured color for today's post. I have an issue with the color associated with the name "Bright Cobalt." It is neither bright nor a cobalt blue. It is a dusty navy blue if anything. Oh well, at least we have a gorgeous polish like China Glaze Well Trained from the amazing All Aboard collection.

China Glaze Well Trained (All Aboard Fall 2014)
Well Trained is a dusty navy blue with subtle green undertones. It is almost teal, but not quite. I think Essie The Perfect Coverup is more along the dusty teal line (in case you are wondering). I really like the color! A lot of darker blues tend to give me lobster hands, but this is very wearable for me. The formula was good, a little thinner than I prefer, but still incredibly easy to work with. This is two coats. As with most polishes in this color family, it does have a tendency to stain. Especially along the cuticle line. So be extra careful when painting so you don't flood your cuticles!
This is a good solid color to add to your seasonal wardrobe - and I think it works really well as a transitional shade as well! I am leaning more towards Royal Blue and Essie Style Cartel, but what about you guys? Which blue do you all prefer?
Last time I checked, the All Aboard collection was marked down for clearance at my local Sally's. So you may have a hard time finding it in stores. But there are several on line retailers who offer China Glaze really cheap - 8ty8beauty.com is one of my favorites.
