Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish





#320 Green With Envy

I got this nail polish two days ago even though it is pretty much the same exact color as Revlon's Minted (which I love) because I hadn't seen any nail polish by Maybelline before that appealed to me so I decided to test this one out. I think what grabbed me was the packaging, it just screamed "Try me!" and also, it had a coupon for 25% off. They had a lot of colors, but they were sold out, which was fine because I wanted to buy one to test it out first.

The nail polish, as I said, is like Revlons Minted, but what I love about it is that the coats dry fast. I didn't have to put anything extra on it to make it dry faster, I would say in about 10 minutes with the time it took to paint the nails, it was dry. The first coat will be streaky unless you slather on a thick one, but it's nothing a second coat won't fix. You could pull it off with 2 coats, but I opted for 3 because I don't plan on changing my polish till Thursday night.

Overall I do like this nail polish, I believe it cost less then Revlons Minted which is good because you get less product. I will be purchasing again and doing more reviews. I think the next one I will buy is a pastel yellow, but if they are still on sale I will probably buy whatever is on the shelf to review. Also, I found it at my local grocery store HEB, so I am not sure if it is yet available at Wal-Mart. I shall check Target and let everyone know!

They also have an app for iPhone and Android called Blippar where you can virtually test out each shade! How cool is that!

    1. That's unfortunate, I use to be the same, I would get away with wearing a nude or pearl color. :)

    1. I think Target has the largest selection as far drugstores go, so I think they should! I hope they do for you!

    1. I don't know what has gotten into me lately but I have been letting them chip away. Which is so unlike me!

      Yes I have seen that color, I have never tried it though. My friend told me the formula gets thick fast? Was that the same for you?
