twilight rays

this little lovely i actually rediscovered in my collection the other day and after using it this week cannot believe i was silly enough to forget about it. i am loving the nail polishes by the maybelline colour show collection at the moment, this is my third and i have another equally gorgeous colour on its way to me :) the consistency of the polish is thin but the coverage is great, you still only need two coats for a really opaque finish. as for the colour range i think its great, literally rainbow looking on the shelves with a couple of unique shades thrown in here and there, i currently have a dark blue (sapphire siren post here), smokey glittery grey (metal icon post here) and have just bought a dark glittery burgundy (wined and dined). this gorgeous colour is twilight rays, a super glossy black with flecks of gold glitter running through it. i love dark nail polishes but the glitter in this one just adds a little something different to a standard black polish. have tried any of the maybelline colour show polishes?


  1. I've been collecting nail polish for my daughter for Christmas (when I'm done I'll wrap then pretty in a box), and today I just put a color similar to this in there. I like that the sparkles are already in it!

    Visiting again today from Sincerely Paula's No Rules Weekend Blog Party. :)

  2. I get my nails and toes done once a month, but sometimes I can go a tad bit longer. I always get my toes different color each time and always some pic on my big toe & rhinestones (I love bling bling - sparkles). This time it is Rudolph Red & a white snowflake & rhinestones here & there. Love it. My nails - I get tips & it's clear polish with silver glitter. I love it. I've been doing it the same way for two years. Totally cool. I'm your latest follower. Nice to meet you & if you have time come see me & follow too. Maybe even check out my give-aways or comment on a review or too. Sure would appreciate it. Have a rockin' weekend!!!

  3. I am really loving the Color Show nail polishes from Maybelline. I have yet to see this color in my local store but it's lovely! The color payoff is great for the price! :)

  7. I tried this polish, and actually wrote a post about it 2-3 days ago. I didn't really like it though. I love the color, but I couldn't get it opaque without 3 coats, and it took forever to dry between coats. And then, it just kept chipping like crazy. Great post!

  8. i love the hint of gold in this one! - glad i found your cute blog from the friends to followers hop ... excited to be your newest follower!
