Catrice 260 Blue's brother + comparison ChG DV8

Dear Lacqueristas,

Catrice 260 Blue's brother was already winking at me when he sat on his shelve in the store. It stands out of this collection for it's shimmery finish. I know you guys want me to swatch the taupes but I just couldn't resist this pretty blue.

See the frost?
The color is like a medium blue leaning to teal. The color reminds me very much of DV8, from China Glazes much beloved holographic collection. That's why I chose to compare these polishes although the finishes are totally not comparable.

Blue's brother has an obvious frosty finish and caused me the dreaded visible brush strokes. Under this pearlized finish you will recognize a beautiful turqoise shimmer. I am not so fond of frosty polishes and was hoping that the shimmer would be more dominant. The formula on this one was good, opaque in 1 coat but I applied 2 for the pictures. I did have some bubbles going on as you might see in the pics.

Do you think this color looks like the DV7 color? DO you like frosty finishes?
Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!
