Maybelline Mini Colorama swatches: Fruit Roll Up, Peach Cocktail & Candy Frost

May 10, 2012

Yesterday I got 3 bottles of Maybelline Mini Colorama nail polish. Actually this time I didn't really pick them myself, it was my mom who saw them and I asked her on the phone which colors they had there, so I could check online for swatches. That was kind of funny :)
I didn't have any nail polish of this brand so it's always nice to have new additions to the stash.
These are pretty cute but I'm not sure I would have picked them for myself if I saw them in the store. Maybe it's a good thing though. I tend to pick the safe colors when I shop for nail polish.
I swatched them using two coats and it was pretty good coverage except Candy Frost which is really sheer so I guess you'll need at least three coats for better coverage.

Fruit Roll Up is a lovely old pink with a frost finish. I really love this color, actually I have something similar to this color but the finish is different. I'm not a big fan of this frost finish though.

Peach Cocktail is a hot orange with a glass flecked finish.
It's my first orange nail polish and it's sooo bright! If I were to give it a name, I would definitely name it Carrot! I love these tiny bright glitters.

Candy Frost is a sheer pearly white color with a touch of purple shimmer. I have nothing like that in my stash and I thought I could use it as a top coat but it was too white. I guess I will try using three coats and see how it goes next time. Basically it's nice but I was a bit disappointed, and I couldn't find the swatch online so it was kind of a surprise.

They come in a cute little bottles and contain 7.5 ml. I managed to get them for a good price so I'm not too disappointed.
I think I will stop by that place and see what else I can get for this price. I've seen them around but never actually thought about buying them because the price was a bit high for that small bottle.
I've seen many lovely colors online but I'm not sure the selection will be that large over there.

  1. מכל הלקים אהבתי רק את הכתום. למרות שבד"כ אני מעדיפה את הלקים שלי

    אני יכולה לחיות עם הנצנוץ שלו.
    לעומתו, הלק הורוד עם הגימור הפנינתי לא נראה מחמיא משהו. כל דבר עם גימור פנינתי מזכיר לי דודות של פעם.
    לגבי הלק האחרון-כל לק שמצריך יותר מ-2 שכבות-לא תודה... הוא צריך להיות מאוד מאוד שווה את זה והוא לא נראה ככה..
    ד"א-כל הכבוד על הציפורניים המטופחות, מי ייתן וגם שלי יראו ככה בקרוב.

    1. אני יכולה להסכים עם מה שאמרת על הלק הורוד, אני גם לא כל כך מתה על פנינתיים אבל יש לו צבע יפה. אני חושבת שגם ההגדלה לא עושה לו טוב :) במציאות הוא נראה סבבה, אבל יכולה להבין את מה שאמרת על זה שהוא לק דודתי קצת :)
