Im not even going to try to create suspense- these nail polishes are absolutely amazing! As I was trying them out, I couldnt believe my eyes these lacquers beat out some luxurious brands that are 10x the price tag! Maybelline recently launched this brand new line of 40 nail polishes in their new Color Show collection (ten of which belong to three separate collections; denims, metallics and shredded textures). Each polish retails for less than $3 at Walmart (and will soon be available at mass drugstores for less than $4 each). I havent been this excited about a drugstore line since the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters.
Each polish comes in a cylindrical tube bottle with the labels on top of the lids instead of on the bottom (this is actually so helpful for those who store their nail polishes in a drawer like me- I can see all the names without having to pick them up)! The line is packed with bold, fashion-forward shades which I do love, but I really would have liked to see some more pastels and neutrals; hopefully Maybelline will launch more shades in the future. They vary in texture and opacity, but for the most part I was able to get amazing coverage in just 1-2 coats (only one polish took 3 coats). They also dry incredibly fast! I use gel nails which really enhances the wear of the nail polishes, but I asked around on Twitter and most of my fellow bloggers agree that about 4 days of chip-free wear is the norm, which is typical of regular polish. I love the patent leather shine they leave and really the only thing Id switch? I wish they would have opted for magnetic polish instead of shatter/crackle polish, which I think is quickly becoming a dated look.
Im totally impressed with these affordable, trendy nail polishes and Im absolutely going to be running out to Wal-Mart as soon as I can to buy the rest of the gorgeous shades. Ill try to do a swatch gallery once I have them all! Ill go through each of the shades individually because they do vary in texture, opacity and thickness.
