If Chicago were a color, apparently it would be blue (although judging from the sky today, gray might be more apropos).

Within recent months not one, but two different popular establishments here have created very different shades of nail polish to pay homage to the Windy City. And both nailpolishes are blue. And as fashionable luck would have it, this is right on time – because shades of blue are super hot nail trends for fall!

Chicago blue at Topshop

The Chicago shade that’s exclusively at Topshop on Michigan Avenue is light blue with a greyish pallor — like the sky on a sunny autumn day or in early spring. Very pretty color that I bet would look gorgeous on deeper skintones, regardless of season.

Chicago Cerulean Trump Spa SpaRitual Nailpolish

Chicago Cerulean Trump SpaRitual Nailpolish

The Chicago Cerulean SpaRitual color custom designed by Ivanka Trump and exclusively for sale at The Spa at Trump is glamorous, sexy, and sparkling. It’s a rich and opaque polish that has great staying power. Very appropriate for the Trump, and on point for the upcoming holiday season!

My mani from the Trump Spa

I recently experienced the ultra luxe manicure and pedicure at The Spa at Trump, located within the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago. The space is airy and posh, the relaxation room is dimly lit and well appointed with teas of various flavors. The service is top notch. If you’re looking for an ideal spot to indulge yourself, or to have a sweet spa date with your mom, sister, or best friend — it’s everything you could dream of and more. Click here for a price list. A manicure there begins at $35, but you can also buy a bottle of the Trump SpaFinder nail polish for less than $15.

I just gushed over Essie’s Midnight Cami — truly the perfect navy canvas for nail art. Deep, dark, opaque, perfect.

Love & Beauty by Forever 21 nail polish

The ever enlightening Bellasugar featured a post titled November’s 10 Nicest New Nail Polishes and included two blues I GOTTA have. This iridescent glitter Love & Beauty nailpolish is just $2.80 at Forever 21!!! I NEED it! And Snow-Man of my Dreams from Nicole by OPI is fabulous and twinkly. Love a good glitter manicure for holiday party season — which will be beginning soon, right?

Do you love any of the above, bellas? What’s your favorite blue nailpolish?

I do love the nail polish colors! I like neon oranges and pinks in the summer. This blue idea is nice for fall and even into the holiday, especaily the SpaRitual one. Looks sparkly and festive. Glad you had a good spa treatment in NY. Sa-weet!

the cerulean is interesting... but the Chicago Blue at Topshop is pitch perfect. It seems to match the blue in the Chicago flag. They did a nice job.
