Sally Hansen’s Royal Hue (469)

When Pacific Blue was reformulated, and its color changed…I (and many others) were less than thrilled. The original Pacific Blue was a huge favorite, and for a lot of folks, was their first and/or favorite blue nail polish. In spring/summer of 2015, Sally Hansen added this shade, Royal Hue, to their Xtreme Wear line. It’s close to the original Pacific Blue, but it’s not an exact duplicate, like I thought (hoped!!!) when I picked it up a few months ago. It’s a bright cornflower blue creme, it applies very well, it doesn’t stain my nails or cuticles, and it has the standard Xtreme Wear durability.

Nail A College Dropout has an excellent post showing Pacific Blue and Royal Hue swatched side by side. Royal Hue is a very nice shade. It’s not quite as saturated as the original Pacific Blue, and it’s just a tiny bit lighter. But Royal Hue is an excellent polish, and is extremely affordable, and is fairly easy to find.
