    I have not, but I have been tempted to once or twice.

    Congrats for your experiment.

    I think some people look great with it, but I have seem some instances of 'offbeat' nail color that struck me as odd.

    I love blues. I have worn and been complimented on a light silvery blue, but I didn't like a dark navy I tried once. They told me on the MUA board that that was because I wasn't used to seeing very dark polish on my nails. There are so many beautiful blues to choose from now. I think there's a blue (or several) for everyone - light to dark, warm to cold shades - you just have to experiment a little to find the one that pleases you. I also like the Essie brand very much. And OPI.

    Blue is my favorite color for anything, so of course, I love blue nail polish! Like lilybelle says, there are lots of pretty blues out there. If you are shy about trying it on your fingernails, try it first on your toenails!

    I like seeing them in the bottle because there are lots of pretty shades of blue, but I haven't bought one yet. I am tempted to buy one of the dark navy ones. I think I could pull that off since I occasionally wear those dark, near black colors. The more fun and vibrant ones would be out of place at work.

    Ibiza by Zoya gets my vote
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I adore Chanel No 513 Black Pearl, almost two years after the big hype for it. Not pure blue, a little green too, and very dark. Works well with most colours, even pure blue and pure green.
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    I cannot say that blue is my preferred color for my nails, but I like to wear it now and then. My favorites so far are Chanel Blue Satin and Butter London Big Smoke.

    My favourite blue for now is Aqua Cool by Rimmel. It's a medium-light bluebell tint.

    I look terrible in blue nail polish, though I admire it on others.
    I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.

    The only blue nail polish I have is Blue boy Chanel polish. It looks great on short and slightly squared nails.

    I have a lot of blue undertone in my skin, so the really dark blues look sickly and moldy on me. I did my nails dark blue once (to please my younger cousin who wanted me to be triendier) and I couldn't wait to get it off. It was her polish, too. The more aqua and turqouise-y blues don't feel as though I'm looking at someone else's hands and look OK.
    Generally, I'll try anything once.

    I am (still) loving pale blues and aquas. There are so many to choose from! I still don't like the very dark polishes against my skin. I just find them harsh looking, though I have admired them on other people's hands.

    A beautiful deep steel blue (I think it was from MAC and called "jet", something cool like that - years ago). It was gifted to a younger co-worker, who admired it.

    Here is my latest love...

    OPI I Vant to be a Lone Star...



    I posted this on the manicure of the day thread, but I should have posted it here. It is such a beautifully pale, luminous, almost but not quite shimmery/opalescent blue. I'm wearing it on my toes, and it is such a happy making color. I am so particular about color gradations. The difference, for me, between perfection and so not right is narrow. What if I had to choose wall paint colors! Anyway, this is the PERFECT pale blue.

    I have this color and I wear it rarely and only when I'm tanned.
    My favorites are nudes and pinks, blue is too extravagant for my taste.

    I have Kristen by Zoya on my nails currently it's a lovely and really pretty pale blue, with grey undertones in some lighting. I thought it was really pretty and summery, have been wearing it since Sunday I want to say, though I may change it out for a pink tomorrow, or keep it for a little longer.

    Blue nail polish is a "sometimes"-thing for me, but when I do it, it is Essies Lapis of luxury (see picture to right below) or a deep navy, almost black, from Maybelline or L'Oreal. This summer I've been loving 'French riviera' by L'Oreal as well.
