Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Breezy Blue and Comparisons!

Sally Hansen Breezy Blue swatch

While I was grocery shopping today I was *shocked* to discover that there were a couple new Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes in the core display. How didn't I hear about this before? Anyway, the two new ones I noticed were a pink glittery one and the one I'm showing today, called Breezy Blue. (Note: I've seen displays call this shade "Breeze Blue", but my bottle definitely says BreezY. Weird!)I didn't notice until I got home and out into the sunlight that it has a very subtle shimmer. The formula isn't great, this took four coats.

Some comparison swatches after the jump!

Hard Candy Sky, L'Oreal High Tide, China Glaze Kenetic Candy, NYC Cashmere Creme comparison swatch
Here's Breezy Blue compared with Hard Candy Sky, L'Oreal High Tide (which is extremely close to both China Glaze Sea Spray and Essie Sag Harbor), China Glaze Kinetic Candy, and NYC Cashmere Creme (which is definitely not a creme..wtf, NYC?).
No dupes here! The closest is probably Hard Candy Sky (the now discontinued Walmart version), but that has a vibrant blue shimmer whereas Breezy Blue's shimmer is more subtle and silvery.

And another comparison with other pale blues from Sally Hansen. For uh. Science.

I love the Xtreme Wear line, and I'm happy to see some new core colors! Cheap thrills while grocery shopping, yay!
