Ceylon Sapphire is a vibrant and crisp shade of metallic blue for the composed but stylish girl. This colour is icy in its appearance but portrays a sense of inner peace and self-confidence.
Mood Match: Blue is a colour that encourages calm and reduces stress so this nail polish is great if you want to create a relaxed look. Wear this colour if you don’t want to make a fuss but still want to be unique like the sapphire gem itself.
Pairing: Ceylon Sapphire works incredibly on its own because it’s so electric, but if you want to pair it with other colours then stick to your deep metallic purples, pinks and greens. Make sure the shade of the colour you choose doesn’t overwhelm the brightness of the blue. A good colour pairing that you can never go wrong with is silver which will complement Ceylon Sapphire well.
Season Match: Blue is a multi-seasonal colour (all seasons except autumn) but the shade will determine whether not it’s suited to that season. Ceylon Sapphire is a bright and rich hue of blue that will work well in winter. The colour will reflect the white light given by the sun, making your nails shimmer.
Skin Tone Match: This colour looks good on cool toned women - women who are either beige, milky white, golden or dark skinned with blue, green, brown or dark eyes and black, medium or dark brown hair.
Event: Wear this colour when you’re going to a relaxed lunch or dinner with family or friends. The colour will give you a casual and demure look.
How to achieve this look: You can achieve this look by firstly applying a generous layer of clear base coat, the base coat. When the base coat is dry you can evenly apply 2/3 layers of Ceylon Sapphire, the more layers you apply the richer the colour looks. You can then top of the look by applying a layer of clear top coat.
