The Face Shop BL605 aka Ateneo Blue

   When the Ateneo Blue Eagles made it to the finals a few days ago, I painted my nails blue in preparation for Game 1 against the FEU Tamaraws. I knew I wouldn't be able to watch it as I had work, so I just showed my support through my nails.

   This one is The Face Shop BL605. (Really, TFS should give names to their polishes, not just numbers. Numbers are boring.)

   You have to forgive my far-from-perfect manicure. I took these pictures days after I did my nails. And it was I who did my nails, so it would look imperfect regardless.

   I consider this nail polish lucky because it was the same polish I was wearing when we won last year. And we did win yesterday!

   Needless to say, I'm not taking this nail polish off until we win on Tuesday. And we shall!

   Honestly speaking, I don't know for sure if this really is THE Ateneo blue, but among the blue nail polishes in my collection, it sure is the closest to royal blue.

L-R: TFS BL605, TFS BL604, Elianto Blue Splash, Elianto Aqua, Etude House BL 501
   And when we do get that 4-peat, hmmm.... I'll keep you posted. :)


  1. I don't have the courage to wear blue polish just yet and therefore salute you for making your nails a tribute to Ateneo. Hail!

    By the way, this new layout (Is that what it's called?) is fantastic! Nicely done!:)

  2. I have those Elianto nail polish din!! Hihi

  3. Xy, where is Elianto now??? It has disappeared! :(

    Patti, thanks! I spent the whole day figuring out how to do it :| I now even have an icon, do you see it? :)
