Swatch: Maybelline Color Show Amethyst Ablaze


This is my first Color Show Polish. I have said many times that I LOVE drug store polishes. Of course I love all the pricey brands too, but I have a ton of success with the inexpensive brands. This gem is no exception. This color is beautiful!!! If you love metallics, you will love this polish.
It was opaque after one coat, but I added two just for good measure and to hide some of the stringy bits from the cotton pad I had just used to take off my old mani. Don’t you hate that!!
The formula was a little thick and the brush wasn’t the best, but it was very very easy to get a smooth application.
You can be sure that I will be trying more of these polishes, especially when they sell for around 2 dollars on sale!!

    This is so beautiful! I think cheap nail polish (like less than $10) works just as well or sometimes better than the high end brands.
