Maybelline Color Show Acid Wash Effect – Lilac Rebel

The last of the colours Maybelline Color Show Acid Wash Effect nail polishes to share with you today.  This one is Lilac Rebel, a lilac tinged pale blue shade, packed with the multi sized white glitters we saw in Ripped Tide and Mint-Acid-Ittude.

Application was OK on this one, it did need three coats to deliver opacity.  But I think its worth it.  This is three coats over a base of G&G Stuck on Blu and topped off with a coat of G&G HK Girl.  The top coat really helps to smooth down those larger glitters that stick up a bit and welds the whole thing onto your nails.

I’ve seen these out and about in many locations now, so if your local Boots or Superdrug hasn’t got them out yet, they soon will.  Just keep trying!
