C is for Cobalt

Hiya, welcome to the next installment of the ABC challenge - C.  I had originally thought I had a bunch of polishes that started with a C - ya, I was wrong.  I have a lot that start with D, not C.  Yes, they are different letters, my brain just didn't recognize that at the time!

This pretty Cobalt blue, that is actually called Cobalt, is from Nina Ultra Pro - they are on sale right now at Sally Beauty for 2 for $8, I've gotten four so far and this lovely is one of them.  I actually prefer this over white, it makes it so bright, but it still works with no undies.  Nina Ultra Pro polishes have the thicker "pro" brushes, which are great when the brushes are perfectly straight - when the brushes have the least bit of a kink or hair sticking out, it defeats the whole purpose of a pro brush.  I had a little trouble with the brush on this one and on one of the other colors I got, but because I'm a trooper - read that as cheap polish whore - I will of course use it again, but it was still a little bit of a bummer for higher priced polish!
