Maybelline Color Show Acid Wash Effect – Mint-Acid-Ittude

Another of the Maybelline Color Show Acid Wash Effects to share with you today, this one is Mint-Acid-Ittude (the name oh my word the name!!) As the name suggests its a minty pale green shade.  Nice for a summers day (wish we had some of them around here!)

This is three thin coats over a layer of G&G Stuck on Blu! base coat.  Formula on this was was not as good as Ripped Tide, it might be because the colour is slightly paler that opacity took longer to build up. Topped with G&G HK Girl this really makes for a lovely, minty glitter sandwich.  Cute huh?

As per last time, I picked this up in my local Boots in a 3 for 2 deal, they should be hitting the shelves this week, so keep your eyes peeled!

Let me know which one if your fave to date, this or Ripped Tide?
