NOTD // Maybelline Peach Smoothie

Hello lovelies, hope your having a wonderful day. Today as you can tell is a nails of the day and before i show the photo's i just want to apologise for the dent in my nail on my index finger, i kind of had an accident with a razor.
Maybelline Color Show - Peach Smoothie £2.99

This is the first color show nail polish I've tried and i have to say on the formula side of things i was a little let down. Beautiful light shades like this i always fall in love for but i find it a pain when i have to apply a million coats to get the actual colour that's on the bottle on my nails. I think in the end to get the colour as solid as in the picture i applied around four coats, certainly not a colour you can achieve if your in a hurry.  However i do adore the colour so on days where i have the time to apply it, or if i plan it and apply the night before, i will still wear this polish.

Other than the colour being a bit on the weak side, it did dry quite quickly and lasted really well on my nails. I'm yet to try darker/brighter toned colours from this range so i hope this doesn't apply to all polishes as they do have some nice colours. I know it's only £2.99 and some people would think you can't really argue for the price but with brands such as Sinful colors and Barry M being just as cheep, i do hold rather high expectations even for rather affordable polishes these days. 

Yet with all that seeming a bit negative i do still really REALLY like the colour haha. Do you have the same niggles with light polish shades? X

  3. I have wondered what the Colour Show polishes were like, I love this shade too. I always go for pinks/nudes so I will have to go have a look at this! Fantastic price too.

  5. I love it :-) I also have the same "niggles" (new word for me!!! Very excited!! ha ha) with light shades. And with determination and passion I will apply 17 coats to get it right, then it all ends in disaster when I touch my cat or fall asleep on a quilted blanket! Despair :-(
    I will soldier on, though. My quest for beautiful light shades will continue!
    My best to you, Becky!

  8. Wow that colour is lovely. I wouldn't have thought of buying such a light shade but it looks so nice!! It's a shame it comes out so sheer though, I don't like applying several layers of polish in case it gets all gloopy.

  9. This is such a pretty shade, Barry M do a more nude colour which is similar to this but takes so many layers for it to look decent.
