H&M Blue My Mind

So I said I was going to start doing Halloween mani's but I had to put that on a 2 day delay due to my AWESOME swap package that I received and Pink Wednesday. H&M Blue My Mind is a lovely medium toned blue that is really bright and beautiful. The brush holds a lot of polish so you will want to make sure to clear some off first. The formula was amazing and very easy to work with, and had fast dry time. I used 2 coats and Seche as my top coat. I think that next time I will use INM Out the Door instead because it did something really weird that kind of looked like it bubbled, but when I took a closer look it left some goldish brown flecks.... Idk it was weird but enough of that. The color is amazing but kind of hard to explain so I will just get to the swatches:

The second picture actually captures the true color which is amazing! Its actually shiny on its own without the Seche. Do you see those ickey spots that got on my middle and ring finger that Seche did? I was a very unhappy camper because of that, good thing I was only swatching the color. When I wear it as a full mani I will definitely be using INM Out the Door or Nubar Diamont as my top coat. Do you like the bigger pictures? I'm trying them out while I'm working on getting better poses so you can see pictures of my nails only, and no background. So what do you think of Blue My Mind? Its officially my favorite blue!

Edit: I had to switch the photos back to large and not xlarge because they aren't compatible with my layout. When I decide to change my layout I will try the xlarge again.
