Blue Monday: GAP Robin

I am rapidly becoming a fan of the line of polishes available at the GAP these days, especially when they had a 30% off sale for the 4th of July! I stocked up on several, so expect to see a lot of them in the coming weeks. Today I'm showing Robin, the second GAP color I tried, one I got back in May along with Gold Rush. I've never in my life seen a robin's egg this shade of blue but I had to get it anyway because, well, duh...
Not a robin's egg blue, but a great blue none the less.
I actually don't care that it's not a robin's egg blue because I already have several polishes that are close to that blue-green and I don't have anything like this blue. I really like that it's such a pure shade of blue because I see lots of possibilities for color blocking and layering.
The first photo is probably the truest color, but check out PMS 801 to be spot on!
I was pretty excited to find an iPhone case the exact same shade! I almost bought it, but then I'd have to change cases all the time and there aren't nearly as many PMS cases as I have polish.
It's an exact match IRL — the lighting throws it off here.
I've heard rumors that the GAP polishes are made at the same place as the Chanel polishes (their bottles are a similar size and shape) and a couple of the ones I've gotten appear to be dupes for Chanel colors. Whether or not that is true, I am really happy with the ones I've tried so far, especially selling for $6 or less!
It bothers me that the "r" is not capitalized...
