Green with Envy, and Why I’ll Never Succeed as A Nail Polish Blogger
I love nail polishes. But there’s a BIG reason why I’ll never succeed as a nail polish blogger. Case in point: my so-called manicure below. Need I say more? Yikes! If you can look past my poor application, the colour is gorgeous isn’t it? It’s Green with Envy from Maybelline’s new Color Show nail polish collection.
The Color Show collection features 3o polishes in a variety of textures and hues (10 of which belong to three separate collections: denim, metallics, and shredded textures). Each polish retails for about $3 at Walmart and for less than $4 each at drugstores and other mass retailers.
I’ve now tried two of the eight colours below: Green with Envy and Styled Out (one of the Denim colours). I’m impressed with both in terms of the colour impact. It took two coats for each to get full coverage, and I’ve gone chip-free for three days. For someone who tends to nick a mani right away, that is a good sign.
I also liked how fast they dried. I am not one to wait for my nails to dry. (Dear Michelle, maybe that’s another reason why your nails look the way they do? )
I think this range is amazing for its price point and quality. Perfect timing for summer manis and pedis.
I’ll show more colours in the coming weeks. Tell me if there’s a colour above that catches your eye.
