Maybelline ColorShow: Acid Wash Swatches!

Friday 30 May 2014

I'm not sure how new these are, but I haven't seen any swatches around and I only noticed them a week or so ago... I picked them up the other day when in the vacinity of Boots lol; I needed change for the car park so breaking my £20 note with a polish purchase was a necessity right?! ;) Anyhoo, I do like a crelly and I loved these pastel tones so thought I'd give them a whirl, ColorShow never let me down...


I teamed the white/clear one with a pastel pink to complete the pastel pallete; now for close ups...


This is three coats of Lilac Rebel, a subtle and stunning soft grey/lilac, my favourite I think.

Next is three coats of Mint-Acid-ittude, a scrummy looking pastel green which reminds me of mint ice cream!

Third up is three coats of Ripped-Tide, a gorgeous light, bright blue which conjures skies or seas...

Last of all is one coat of Top Splatter, the clear topper of the bunch, over a pretty pink.

Really happy with this spur of the moment purchase! The colors are lovely and although the formula is a little tacky in the coloured ones, they dried to a nice sheen. They would really suit just one coat over a similar base colour, or you could topcoat but I did't feel the need. Nice addition to my summer 2014 collection :)

That's all for tonight folks, I have a dedicated nail day lined up tomorrow and I am really looking forward to getting scheduling with my new blog planner come Sunday so stay tuned!

Have a great weekend!
