New Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquers!
Posted by LilVovo
June already?! I was wandering through Wally World the other day and stumbled upon a new and more then half empty display for Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquers. I don’t own any Maybelline polishes so I grabbed 4 of these. I will say that it was hard to narrow it down to just 4- was was originally only going to get 2, haha. There were some awesome colors. Good thing I don’t own a credit card.
Maybelline Crushed Candy in 3 coats with topcoat. Dry time on these are pretty good for someone like me I really take that into consideration because I have too much to do and I can’t sit around waiting. Formula was fantastic, great coverage this seems more like its a heavy shimmer packed jelly, you can see a visible nail line in this photo. I was quite happy with this as I was comparing this to Revlon Wild Strawberry and felt like the purple/blue shimmer that flashes in this was more then Revlons.
Amethyst Ablaze is ONE coat in this photo. This is labeled Metallics. Also it dries to a satin matte finish. You can also see any imperfection on the nail with this. 😛 Great formula great coverage. Next photo is with topcoat.
Blue Freeze in 2 coats with topcoat. I picked this one up because in the bottle it has an amazing purple shimmer that flashes amazingly…in the bottle. IRL its not as prominent. But I’m not entirely disappointed because this is still very very pretty. Formula is great build beautifully. Maybe a tad runny but not awful.
Twilight Rays is in 3 coats and topcoat. This black based polish is loaded with gold glass fleck shimmer. After I saw how Blue Freeze didn’t live up to what I thought was in the bottle I was worried this would look nearly as good as it represented itself on the shelf. As you can see it did not disappoint!!! I just loooove this! Great formula as it with the rest of these.
So I’m not sure if our Walmart is always going to have these as the display is already taken down and the few bottles left were shoved onto a very random rack in the beauty department. I hope they do because these are great all around polishes and there were a few other colors I really wanted. Also if you check out Maybelline’s color wheel for these on their site- it is not accurate to what you see IN the bottle or ON the nail. They show #240 Twilight Rays as just #240 “Twilight” and a rather dark mossy green.
So have any of you seen these elsewhere? Have you snatched up a few?
