Exciting news in the nail world, as Maybelline has just released a 40-shade collection of nail polishes. Inspired by looks seen at Fashion Week, there is a shade for every season and every look. There’s even an app so that discovering the perfect shade isn’t a fashion disaster. Read on for more…
I was sent a selection of shades from the Maybelline ColorShow Nail Lacquer and of the ones I received, every shade is a winner. What I love about this collection is that the hues are vibrant, bright and reflect what’s hot in fashion. I don’t want yesterday’s nail colors! In addition to the basic creme formula, there are textures, too (“shattered” finishes).
The formula is on the thin side and like most polishes, you need 2 coats for an even appearance. However, once applied, the colors are bright, saturated and wear really well. The shade I’m wearing, above, is Pinkalicious. I was honestly impressed by the lack of chipping and how long my nails lasted. Only the slightest bit of wear on the tips, which is something I expect after a few days. But overall, no chipping. The only issue I have is that I’d like to buy additional colors, but the collection is still not available in my area.
If metallics are your thing, Maybelline ColorShow has you covered. One of my favorites is Pedal To The Metal (above).
