Today I have Cult Nails Time Traveler. This is a polish I purchased long ago and only got around to swatching recently. At the time I was in the search of the perfect navy blue, but after becoming a massive Doctor Who fan in the last year I just love that it's an homage to TARDIS blue. :)
Anyway, on with the polish. Time Traveler is a slightly dusty navy blue crelly (it's a bit too opaque to be a jelly in my book). This one is incredibly dark and opaque, and I used two smooth coats for the photos below. Like many dark blues, this one will stain if you get it on your cuticles, so careful application is crucial! It dries to an incredibly shiny dark blue, and the photos below are without top coat.
Removal wasn't as bad as I expected with such a dark blue, I was very careful to apply acetone to the nail and wipe straight downwards away from my cuticle, and didn't end up with much staining. With a dark blue like this I highly suggest applying lotion or cuticle oil right before polish removal, and using as many cotton balls/removal pads as possible. Moisturized hands will resist staining more than dry hands, and new cotton balls because the more you smear that dark blue cotton ball on your fingers, the more that blue is going to stain!
Overall, this is simply a beautiful blue! It's a bit darker than I expected (and I think just a bit darker than the TARDIS) but that dusty shade is absolutely perfect. :)
