Maybelline Cool Couture

Thank you to everyone who left sweet comments yesterday. I'm still feeling under the weather but slightly better than I was. Yesterday I posted a bright yellow mani in the hopes it would cheer me up. Today I have the exact opposite, colour-wise anyway: grey. This actually cheers me up as well because the aqua shimmer is AH-MAZING.

Maybelline Cool Couture
3 coats, no topcoat




She's pretty, no?

Cool Couture is a dark charcoal with aqua shimmer throughout. Application was a little thin at first but 3 coats is perfection. I have to say that they are effortless coats as well so it doesn't feel like a chore. Dry time is good, although I didn't allow it to dry completely and also did not add a topcoat. (The nature of being lazy while swatching.)

This polish is right up my alley. I love it. Maybelline has recently discontinued their core line of nail polishes and will only be releasing their limited edition displays from now on. Honestly, I don't think it's a huge loss because I find that their LE polishes are much more interesting and unique compared to their core offerings anyway. Locally, there is only one shop that carries the LE Maybelline displays and they are always marked down because they aren't a big seller in that area. (That's when I swoop in and buy 2 of each polish, haha.)

On another note, I'm very excited to be getting closer and closer to 500 followers. I'm trying to figure out how to do my giveaway. If you have any suggestions for the easiest way to do it please let me know in the comments. I'm not a computer whiz by any means. Simple but effective is what I'm looking for!

Enjoy your Friday!

  1. This is a gorgeous color!! I have to see if I can find it.
    For my giveaways, I just have people comment in the post. I then give everyone a number and have my hubby pic a random number. That way it's still fair without all the extra work. Hope this helps!

  5. I love this, blue shimmer is awesome, and I'm glad you're feeling better. I see a lot of people doing Rafflecopter giveaways but I still think the spreadsheet variety are fine.
