Alphabet Nail Challenge: P is for Pink Cosmo (by Maybelline)

Posted on Tuesday, at bought • 296 views

I'm participating in an Alphabet Nail Challenge that I found over at Confessions of a Secret Shopper. She's running her contest from September 1 to 26 - start between those dates, and you can add your link to the list of people taking the challenge. All you have to do is post 26 manicures, one a day, each day using a polish that begins with a different letter of the alphabet. I'm using this as an opportunity to go through my backlog of polishes (and photos still on my hard drive!!) to show off some of my newer goodies.

Pink Cosmo, from Maybelline's Fall Fashion collection, is a nice enough color…but there's not much duochrome, and it took five coats to get the color payoff that I did. All in all, the Maybelline Color Show polishes from this NYFW collection aren't thrilling me (see Boho Gold, an earlier manicure done for this very same challenge.) The price point is decent, but I'm not sure that I like this quite that much. The China Glaze colors are better, even if they don't have quite the duochrome that I would have preferred. (Watch for Swanky Silk in four days!)

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches
