Maybelline Color Show Crystallize – Rose Chic

Oh dear – its seems I forgot to post this last polish from the Maybelline Color Show Crystallize collection.  We’ve already seen the other three here; Red Excess, Light Up and Nearly Black.  This is the palest of the collection and frankly is probably the reason I had forgotten it.  But lets check out some pics!

What you see above it two coats over a base of G&G Stuck on Blu!  Remember, with textured polishes, you do not need a top coat unless you want to cover up the textured finish.  This one is a very pretty pale rose shade – its not too far from my skin colour so it does give the effect of a nude polish.  A bit of a palette cleaner after all those brash shade I naturally gravitate to.

I have still seen these Crystallize polishes in my local Superdrug, so some stores near you may still have these in stock.  Last time I was on the Superdrug website they were still listed, so its worth checking out your local stores if you fancy this one or any in the collection.

I’m so not over textures!!

Speedy Swatches – Maybelline Color Show Crystallize Collection

OK, here we go.  I didn’t have much time and I have literally just swatched these onto sticks so you can see them.  After my first thought that one was a bit like Downtown Brown or even Total Eclipse, I can say that I was not right.

First up – Red Excess – dark red/brown with red accents.  Reminded me of Stay the Night from the OPI Liquid Sand Mariah Carey collection or a red (instead of plum) version Countess by Barry M

Rose Chic – a pink with different glitter sizes.  Not girly pink, kind of a purple leaning pink but not lilac or lavender.

Light Up – a pure silver texture polish

Nearly Black – this is black with accents of blue and pink, its like a textured Butter London The Black Knight.
