Acquarella Water Based Nail Polish in Shalom (Metallic Blue)

Today I have Acquarella nail polish swatches in Shalom (metallic blue) to share. Acquarella is one of my favorite brands of long-lasting water-based nail polish. Shalom is a new color released during the Holiday 2012 season, along with Donner, which is a forest green with silver shimmer. I purchased Shalom as a little gift to myself.

Shalom (Metallic Blue) Swatches

Shalom is a gorgeous metallic blue with silver shimmer. It is super metallic and looks like car paint. The metallic blue color reminds me a bit of the nail polishes I used to wear in the 90′s, but it is still a beautiful color for today.

I looked up the meaning of “Shalom” and found that it is a Hebrew word meaning peace, which is used by Jewish people as both a greeting and farewell.[1. Shalom, Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shalom] It is a fitting name for the holiday season.

As is common with Acquarella nail polishes that contain shimmers, the polish required a thorough shaking before it was well mixed. The first coat of Shalom went on very thin and there was still a VNL after two coats. The swatches below are shown with three thin coats of Shalom.

There are two other blues in the Acquarella nail polish collection. Mahalo is a bright creme blue and Star Spangled is a darker royal metallic blue. Once I get Star Spangled, I can compare all three.

Shalom is one of my favorite new colors from Acquarella! It goes nicely with two of their other metallic colors- Date Night (purple) and Dream Car (greenish blue).
