CND Creative Play Party Royally is a rich royal blue with a hint of purple. Despite the almost neon quality to the bright blue, this needs no white undie to show the colour and has a glossy opaque finish in just two coats.
As with all Creative Play polishes, Party Royally comes in a 13.6ml round bottle with a medium sized brush. The Creative Play advanced brush designed with nearly 400 bristle ends to allow for precision and smooth application. I like that it gives precision while not being as small as Essie’s brushes. The micronized pigments deliver smooth, uniform application, high gloss, and richly saturated color.
CND Creative Play Party Royally Swatches (Sunset Bash Collection)
In artificial lighting, you can see the touch of indigo-purple in CND Creative Play Party Royally. It has a deep glossy finish with no visible nail line even under bright lights.
In shade, Party Royally is less vibrant than in other lighting conditions. It looks slightly dustier in colour but still rich and shiny.
This is the true colour I see most often when wearing Party Royally. A beautiful bright blue that just screams summer. Think deep blue seas when you are on vacation or a deep cloudless sky.
In bright sunlight, Party Royally really shines. Even under bright midday sun, there is no visible nail line with just two coats. Rich and glossy, this is the perfect summer blue. It is surprisingly wearable for such a bright colour and unlike many brighter blues, no lobster hands! Shown in all swatches using CND Creative Play base and top coat with two coats of colour.
Can You Stamp With CND Creative Play Party Royally
As one of the more opaque polishes, I had high hopes for Party Royally stamping and it did not disappoint. It shows beautifully over both black and white as you can see from the swatch in the middle. I have better blues over white so would probably use them instead as it is a little sheer given the amount of polish used when stamping. But over black, it shows really well and I will be reaching for it again!
