I’m so excited to share this polish with you – sent to me by the lovely lovely Lindz who saw my post about the European Edition Maybelline Color Show Acid Wash (you can see it here) and then made it her mission to find me one. She is a star and I am very grateful to her.
Now I just LOVE this, but then I am quite a fan of the Acid Wash polishes, but I know not all of you are fans. I am sightly obsessed with bright blue polishes and this one just ticks my boxes in all the right ways. As you can see, this is a bright blue with the white glitters from the UK editions of the Acid Wash polishes. They have big white matte glitters through to small white glitters. From what I can tell they are all matte.
Formula is good, which is surprisingly considering the amount of glitter that comes out on the brush. This is two coats over a base of Essence Anti Nail Peeler (seems to be working) and topped off with a coat of G&G HK Girl. The glitter placement is good, although I did end up with one finger having five large pieces of white glitter on – more than any one nail needs – but other than that, I felt it was a good mix of sizes. The top coat does help level off the glitter so if you have a little bit sticking up it does really help.
It wore like IRON – I had it one for nearly three days (because I LOVE it) before I started to note tipwear. If you want to see the other Maybelline Acid Wash polishes, you can do so on these posts here (top splatter, ripped tide, lilac rebel & mint-acid-ittude)
I do think Maybelline has been knocking great polishes out of the part, I would imagine we might see these in different colour ways in the autumn and winter collections. They seem to be bang on the money when it comes to glitter collections.

Argh, this is amazing! Damn you Maybelline bringing out polishes I can’t get my hands on!
I know. It’s awesome and Maybelline are naughty for having different editions!
I have all the other colours and feel I will have to get this too. The only thing I’m not so keen on with these polishes is the slightly bumpy texture. I prefer smooth ones because I tend to pick at the bumps and before I know it, it’s spoiled. Reading your blogs has been bad for my bank balance, but I love them!
I just had to have this one – a good top coat does help with the bumpiness but I know exactly what you mean about picking the bits that stick up! Thanks for the comment 🙂
Interesting combo, hopefully they’ll release them everywhere
I always find it fascinating what gets released across the world and when. Thanks for your comment 🙂
