Review: Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish

Hey everyone!

I'm actually in bed with Tonsillitis at the moment so although I'm not feeling my best I'm spending the time I'm not sleeping planning new posts woo! This has also given me time to try out the new nail polish I bought last weekend, a little pamper sesh to make me feel better.
So during my last trip to Superdrug I picked up these three colours by one of my favourite nail polish brands Maybelline, I love their Color Show polishes because they don't chip, are very glossy and you only need one layer to get a really strong colour so they're perfect when I'm pushed for time! Plus at only £2.99 each and a 3 for 2 offer, it would of been rude not to..

(Left to Right: Corals Up / In Your Flesh / Winter Baby )

I seem to have an abundance of dark wintery colours at the moment so these definitely screamed at me to buy them immediately, I love corals and the recent sunny whether has called for a spring transformation so when this caught my eye it was love at first sight, it's a gorgeous orange-pink that isn't too bright that it looks out of place this time of year. 
I've been looking for a good nude nail polish for a while now, I've found most of them are very streaky and thin, but not this one. 'in your flesh' is the perfect nude match for me, and applies beautifully in one stroke. I love the nude mannequin hand trend, it is elegant but doesn't detract away from your outfit or makeup.
Finally despite being called 'winter baby' there is nothing wintery about this choice!
I'd been using up my Barry M white nail polish first before allowing myself to pick up another one, and I'd always been disappointed with it's tippex appearance which needed lashings of top coat to give it a shine. Needless to say I was apprehensive about buying this one but I'm glad I did, it's so glossy and lovely! It does require a few coats to build up a strong white base, but I can live with that when it's durable and in my opinion could be passed off as gel nails (as could all these colours!)

What's your favourite spring nail polish colour?

Thanks for reading!
