It’s been quite awhile since I saw a polish online and just HAD to have it. I added Batbano Blue to my polish wishlist on Pinterest and went on my merry way. More often than not I forget about such lemmings. Which is what happened with this polish until I happened to see the Summer 2014 Limited Edition Complete Salon Manicure Beach Paradise collection in my local CVS. And there she was; Batbano Blue!
A quick note regarding the name of this polish. I don’t know this for sure but I do not think Batbano is a word. However, Batabano is and can be a number of things (including a town in Cuba and a Carnival on the Cayman Islands). Since the theme of this collection is Beach Paradise it seems to me perhaps they meant Batabano. But who knows!
Anyway. Batbano Blue is an electric blue with aqua shimmer. This is one of those polishes that really glows on the nail. It’s gorgeous! And I kind of love it.
The formula is good. I did need three coats to get a fully opaque color.
The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Beach Paradise collection is currently in stores.
As always there are swatches under the jump. The pictures I took in the sun show how GORGEOUS this polish really is!
