Maybelline Oldies

Today I'm going to show you some old Maybelline polishes. Two of these I got from Ross and the other 2 I got from polish insomniac who happens to be a new blogger! You can sometimes luck out and find these at Dollar Tree or Ross.

Purple Aluminum

This is purple-blue toned foil metallic. This is a great color with a nice finish. I really like this on my nails, but I'm thinking this would awesome on my toes too!

Red Aluminum

This is cool toned red foil metallic. It's rich and sexy color. I really love the finishes of these aluminums. Foils in generals are awesome, but I especially love colorful ones.

Sand Coral

This is a bronze foil metallic. I'm usually not one for more neutral shades, but this one is beautiful. It definitely doesn't disappear into the background. I love this shade also because it can go with anything!

Turquoise Seas

Index Finger- Turquoise Seas over Black, Middle Finger-Turquiose Seas, Ring Finger- Turquoise Seas over Milani Fresh Teal, Pinky-Turquoise Seas
I knew when I picked this up what I was getting myself into. This is a sheer duochrome. I couldn't pass it up though. It's pale turquoise shimmer with blue/purple/gold duochrome. To get it to be opaque you need 5-6 coats. It looks great on its own or over other colors especially black. It's rare I'd every put 5-6 coats on of one polish, but I think I'd do it for this one!

I hope you enjoy these! I haven't been very lucky in spotting these at my Dollar Tree. I think there another nail polish addict out there getting to them before me! I did find some sets of Maybelline polishs 5 for $5 at Ross though, so do some searching. I don't think these go out of style no matter their age.
