as you might remember, a few weeks ago I bought some of the Maybelline Colorshow polishes together with their new nail art pens.
Today I want to review the first two of them.
749 electric yellow
a nice bright yellow polish which makes me want to do a fun Bee nail art.
Sadly it is not super opaque so I applied three coats – with two coats the nail tips were still shining through.
110 urban coral
for my taste a too pink for a coral named polish. Not a big fan of it, but maybe I can use it for some nail arts.
The application was just as normal as with all the Colorshow polishes. I feel the brushes are just between thin and wide, so I say they are normal^^
In general I like the Colorshow polishes, because the quality is mostly good and they have some super fun colors and LE’s – plus they are super affordable with just 1,75 euro. So even if one polish is a miss it is still not a big problem.
What do you think of them?
Let me know in the comments. :)
Also I am sorry for being late again, was making myself some shirts. Would you be interested to see something like this as well?
I love the maybelline color show range
yeah they are great for the price they cost :)
Yh they are but I just wish they had a better colour selection
not the colors you like?
Great swatches! I tried maybe three Colorshow polishes and they were all misses! Maybe I’m not trying the right ones, but after three fails I just couldn’t bring myself to purchase another one.
Yellow polishes are having a moment with me. Would you recommend Electric Yellow?
let me ask you first, why do you feel the ones you bought were misses?
Which ones did you buy and also what are you looking for in a good polish?
When I have these informations it is easier to say if I recomment Electric Yellow.
Tastes are different, some people like thin brushes – some wide. I for example prefere liquid polishes, not creamy ones.^^
I don’t remember the names because I tossed them pretty quick but one was a dark blue creme, the other was a red glitter and the other was a red creme.
I am not too picky about brushes and I prefer the lighter formulas too but after a few uses the polishes dried up in the bottle and became unusably thick. I couldn’t even save them with acetone or polish thinner! I usually cap the bottles between coats so I’ve never experienced this with other polishes.
I can be a little more understanding about the glitter because it was so thick to begin with and the glitters were really dense (If I remember it was from the Brocades collection?).
Now that I think about it more I don’t think I’ve tried anything from their core line…all LE…hmmm
yeah I get where you are coming from.
In general the LE or glitter polishes are a bit tricky. I remember the recent neon collection, it is so damn creamy and the more I use it the more it thickens up I feel.
The glitters or LE’s like street artist are difficult too sometimes, because as you said they are a bit thicker to begin with to keep in the particles while applying. I feel you have to apply fast to get a good even result.
As for electric yellow, when I applied it I also felt it becoming a bit more creamy and thick the more I applied and the longer the bottle was open. So maybe the Colorshow polishes in general are not for you. I don’t mind too much because as I said, they are cheap here. BUT I think because of their creamy consistency they are good for nail arts. Did you try using them for dots with a dotting tool?
Thank you so much for your thoughts! I tried them for dotting and other nail art but really had to water them down and I still had strings :(.
I guess it might just be my preference, they are little more expensive at 7.50 – 8.99 USD. I’d rather buy an OPI or China Glaze for a couple more dollars! :)
well that just makes sense, I probably wouldn’t buy them for that price either. There are just so much more great Brands who offer a better quality.
I am very happy I could help :D
