I do enjoy a good Maybelline Color Show collection (even if it is spelt color and not colour!). I did get the sparkly ones from around Christmas but haven’t had a chance to post them. I spotted these last week in Boots and while I liked them all, I bought only two. They did stick in my mind though so I went back and got the rest. For blogging purposes you know….
Anyway, there’s 4 shades and one glitter topper. Lou from Painting Nails and Baking Scales showed one of the promo pictures up in the shops and it shows a different glitter topper, but it looks like it’s only available in France at the moment. Which is a pretty as it’s beautiful, go check out the post from Painting Nails and Baking Scales here.
First up is Orchid Violet
This is one of the two that I first picked up, the other being the glitter topper. This is a pretty purple creme. I really like it, I’ll probably use it when doing nail art as I think it would be nice to use on top of one of the lighter colours below.
Next up is Peach Bloom
I wasn’t hugely intrigued by the bottle at first. I thought it could either be really nice or end up a disaster. Luckily it turned out nice! It’s a nice dainty peachy creme, very spring appropriate!
Next is Fuschia Petal
This is probably my least favourite of the collection. Not that I hate it or anything, I just find the others stand out. It’s a pinky purple, I think it’s a nice combo of delicate and strong!
Last colour in the collection is Vivid Rose
When they say vivid they mean it! This one is a bit hard to explain, it’s a really intense pink, almost red, almost reaching neon. This is probably my second favourite and the biggest surprise, as I was not expecting to like it that much.
Finally, we have the topper Bouquet
Bouquet is a glittery topper, with pink and white large and small hex glitters, tiny gold glitter and large gold hex glitter. I thought it might be sickly or something as it looked so pink. I used one coat over all the polishes above. I love it over Vivid Rose, for a punchy effect and over Peach Bloom for a really delicate look, though I also like how the gold pops over Orchid Violet.
My favourites are Vivid Rose and Peach Bloom, I keep changing my mind over which I like better! I do like that while this is a floral collection, there’s some bright punchy colours as well as some more delicate ones. Definitely worth checking out if you’re sick of winter and want to injection some colour to your life!
Which one is your fave? I’d love to hear in a comment below.
Orchid Violet is gorgeous! By far my favourite xReplyDelete
It is a lovely solid colour! :)Delete
I love the look of Vivid Rose, I saw these in Boots yesterday and wasn't overly gone on them but I love how that looks on your nails! Have to say I wasn't drawn to the topper at all but it looks gorgeous over the light pink.ReplyDelete
Ya, I totally wasn't gone on it in the shop but really liked it on! And I thought the topped would be sickly and horrible as it was so pink but I was surprised. Might try it over other colours, I'm curious about over a deep chocolate brown, as I love pink and right shade of brown togetherDelete
Orchid Violet is a gorgeous colour.ReplyDelete
It is, I can't wait to use it as a base for nail art!Delete
Peach bloom & bouquet look lovely, such gorgeous spring shades! :) xxReplyDelete
Yes, they are beautiful spring shades!So pretty and delicate :)Delete
OOhhh that topper is prettier than I imagined. Also, Amazon.fr have updated their link so that the polish is now the same as the UK one. Wonder if Maybelline dropped a booboo?ReplyDelete
Sooooo much better on the nails than in the bottle, I was so surprised by it. Yes, I was also on the Amazon site and noticed it was gone!! It looked so interesting, that blue in there looked like flowers, it was such a pretty idea. I wonder what's happened to it? Strange, now I want it more!!Delete
I love the purple. You can never have too much purple nail varnish :)ReplyDelete
You know, thinking about it, I think purple might be my most owned colour!Delete
Orchid Rose looks amazing with Bouquet! How was it applying the topper? I find glitters to be a bit of a pain!ReplyDelete
I think because the other three are all pinky toned like the topper, it really pops when over the purple as it's different you know? It wasn't too bad to apply! Not too measly, but you can either do a second coat or just dab on one coat for better coverage. I do hate taking off glitters though!Delete
Vivid Rose is a STUNNER!ReplyDelete
I know! I can't wait to wear it moreDelete
