Maybelline Color Show Acid Wash Effect – Top Splatter

Final polish from the Maybelline Color Show Acid Wash Effects to share with you today.  To recap this is the glitter on its one that we see in the coloured shades of  Ripped Tide, Lilac Rebel and Mint-Acid-Ittude in a clear base so that you can pop it over any polish you want or make jelly nail sandwiches.  Lets look at the pics.

This is over a base of Essie Hide & Go Chic, a demin blue creme.  I was trying to avoid doing white glitter on black or green.  Application here is super easy, this is two one swipe coats over the base colour. I only have one other pure white glitter polish, but the glitter is all the same size in that, so this is a nice variant.

Not much more to say really, its lovely and if you don’t have a white glitter in your stash then you might want to pick this one up.  Otherwise its probably one you can skip.

Let me know what you think and what colours you would team this with in the comments 🙂
