Earlier this year, Maybelline New York announced the release of their new collection of 40 polish shades. As a nail polish addict, from the moment of the announcement, I was on the hunt for the Maybelline New York Color Show collection. So I was really excited when I first saw a part of the collection in my local Walgreens. They had about half of the collection and I then found the other half at Walmart. I haven't seen the entire collection at any one retailer. I grabbed my first 2 at Walgreens and another 3 at Walmart. If you have followed my blog, my twitter or facebook, you know that I LOVE blues and purples, and so of course, the first of this collection I purchased was blues and a purple.
The collection has several finishes from creams, metallics, shimmers, mattes, denims and what they are calling their crackles-shredded.
So I picked up a couple of their metallics. The first is Navy Narcissist. A gorgeous metallic blue. The application was good with not any real issues. This is two coats.
The next shade I picked up was Blue Freeze. Another blue, but this was a navy blue with purple and blue shimmers.
The next polish I grabbed from the denim collection was a darker blue, called Styled Out. This is another satin-matte finish with teal specks. These two Denim polishes remind me of some of my favor jeans. These two denims also apply with ease. Hopefully they will release the equivalent to a dark or black denim.
Lastly, I could not pass up a purple metallic I found at Walmart. Amethyst Ablaze is a gorgeous purple metallic.
BTW, the shade name is the same as one of the EYE STUDIO® COLOR EXPLOSION™ eye shadows I own. It looks like they have reused some of the names of their previous products.
As a whole, from the shades I have tried, this is a great collection: many great colors, readily available at your local discount retailers, almost opaque with one coat, great prices ($5.99 at Walgreens, $2.97 at Walmart). and several finishes. From the colors I've seen, most of the current trends can be covered with this collection (brights, neons, metallics, etc.)
Have you tried any of the new Maybelline Color Show collection? If so, which colors and what was your opinion?
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
