Sally Hansen’s Batbano Blue (828)

Not necessarily a thoroughly original shade, even for the CSM lineup. Batbano's finish is even similar to Blue My Mind - this color is perhaps a little bit brighter, but not by much. Both blues cover well, are fully opaque, and do not stain my nails or cuticles when I use a base coat.

Batbano has outperformed Mind in the “durability” department, but only by about a day. And that could be down to the way I applied my respective base- and top-coats for those polishes, rather than inherent differences in the formula.

When I've seen half-empty stands around, about half the time, there will be a bottle of Batbano Blue hanging out there. But just in case you don't manage to snag a bottle of this particular polish, there's always the regular-line Blue My Mind.
