New Nail Colors from Maybelline Express Finish
Happy Monday! Hopefully your having a wonderful day. Today is yet another gloomy and rainy day here in the tri state. But, I'm not going to let that stop me from swatching some new colors from Maybelline.
Sunset Prisms (pic above), is a new shade in the Express Finish Line that's really pretty. More toned down than Color Club's Tangerine Scream, described as a orange with iridescent green shimmer. You shouldn't have any problems finding this one, it should be in the standard display.
These next two are limited edition colors that should have a seperate makeup display in stores now.
Coral Radiance is much prettier in person. Described as a rose pink with a pinch of coral and gold/silver shimmer. It's definitely more pink than coral. A nice universal color for anyone.
Pot of Gold is really cool. Described as a clear base with gold glitter and "sequin like" designs. At first, I wasn't sure how'd these apply due to the torturious application of the Valentine hearts, but they surely pulled through.
Pot of Gold applied fairly well with two coats, so you don't need a toothpick or anything to move them around. The finished result, a smooth even surface that wasn't bumpy or gritty. I really loved how the different lighting catches the glitter and sequins at angles!
These colors should be available now. If your interested, make sure you keep an eye out because we all know how LE's are. Have a great day!

I picked up "Pot of Luck" a few weeks ago, was satisfied with the application, and was eagerly waiting for someone to swatch it. Yay! Looks great on you. (Oddly, my bottle is labeled "Pot of Gold")

I really love the Coral Radiance, and if it's really that much prettier in person, I can't wait to try it... The last time I wore Maybelline nail color it chipped jusy a couple of days out...I know you must change nail color often enough...but do you think it's long lasting? And by the way...what is your favorite hand lotion? Thanks !!!

Hi D, Thanks :)! Yep, your right that just was my spelling error! Hi Laine, Definitely! Hope you can it :) Hi Jeff, You'll love Coral Radiance, it's so pretty. I've had Maybelline last around 3 days and that's with putting seche vite on every morning. Barielle's hand creme is one of my favorites, although I'll just grab anything in sight when I need to lol. I also use Cetaphil's ultra hydrating lotion, one of my face lotions that I grabbed one day and really liked.
