There was something clearly unique about this color. It was a lot brighter and more blue than many of countless minty aqua greens out there. I scoured my stash and the internet, and that's when I came across Color Club Blue-Ming from the Spring 2012 Blossoming collection. I didn't think it was an exact dupe, but as close as it was going to get!
Color Club Blue-Ming
Color: This is unique. I know it doesn't seem like it, but it is. Check out this comparison over at Caitt's Nails. In my own stash, Blue-Ming stood out as clearly lighter and more blue than my other colors in this family. Blue-Ming wasn't even close to any of the other colors I had like it.
Formula: This is where this one fails on me. It's streaky and hard to apply. It's far from the worst formula ever, but it's definitely not good. I managed to get it to work out ok, but still...meh.
Price: I got this one ebay for around $4. I know the retail price is slightly higher.
Overall: I adore this color. It is unique, bright, and perfect for summer. The formula is not good, but for a color like this I can make a bit of an exception.
My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
