Pupa #M234 Blue - swatches and review

Today it's Blue Monday and I'm showing you another Pupa polish! :D Pupa is an Italian brand and so far I'm positively surprised at the high quality of these polishes :D

This is an amazing dark blue polish with an absolutely gorgeous glow!! It's a blackened blue, but it never looks just black. I first thought it looked like another favourite of mine, H&M's Spending Cash with Carl, but it didn't. This one is a lot darker!

My only concern about this polish is that it has the same "name" or number as the the blue holo Pupa polish I showed you some time ago?! Ok, they came in a duo pack, but really... the same number?!?! It must be some kind of mistake... I'm keeping them apart by calling this one Blue and the other one Blue Holo ;)
So this is Pupa Blue! Enjoy! ;)


Type of polish: Shimmer.

Colour: A blackened blue packed with medium blue shimmer.

Opacity: Excellent! This is ONE coat! :D

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Excellent! Great formula! No complaints!

Brush: Very good! Good width and length. I only wish it was a tiny bit firmer.

Shine: Very shiny on its own. No top coat in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate, but you can see the inner glow even better IRL! This polish really is amazing IRL!!

Grade: 5/5 :D

This polish has a gorgeous colour and a stunning inner glow! The formula is perfect too (it's a one coater!!). I really like it!!
The perfectionist in me doesn't like this same-number-business ;) but with a colour and a formula like this - I can live with it! ;) 

How do you feel about this polish?
Do you own any polishes from the same brand 
which have the same numbers??
