Is my wok seasoned?

Hello, first post here, hope its in the right place.
So i bought a carbon steel wok and had a go at seasoning it.
Was wondering if someone could tell me if it is seasoned correctly? I have watched a lot of videos on youtube about wok seasoning and it kind of looks similar i guess just looking for oppinions and thoughts.

Here are the steps i took:
-Cleaned it with scrub water and detergent
-Heated up wok on electric stove, took a while. Where direct heat was it turned brown, to blue-ish purple then to a similar silver that i started with.
-Because this was taking way to long i made sure it was blue/purple al over then placed in oven briefly.
-Then i brought it out spread corn oil all over on kitchen towel (tspoon and half only) Then heated more on stove where base turned black and finished off with another light coat of oil and 20mins in oven.
-I then friend some chives in a touch more oil let it cool then cleaned with warm water and soft sponge.

Thoughts? Is my Wok now Seasoned and ready to use?
