Today I have 2 more shades from the Maybelline Winter Trend Collection Poptimistic to share with you. There are 6 polishes in this collection and if you missed yesterday's post, the first 2 can be found just below. Poor Cloud Nine, having to compete for my affections against Glad to be Green. Cloud Nine is just not my style, as it's a frost finish, it's very sheer, it's a pearl white shade...just not my thing. I'll hang onto it in case I ever want to transport back to the 60's, but I can assure you, this won't get used often by me. I used 3 coats and I probably could have gone with 5 and still been dissatisfied. The brush was a little wonky, a few stray hairs that were longer than the others, but because it's not a favorite, I don't really care. Glad to be Green on the other hand, is a shade that I love. It's a brighter shade of olive green with very fine shimmer. This shade is further beautified by the fact that it has a charcoal base, giving the polish more depth and the glitter more clarity. On the nail, the glitter itself looks to be a slightly lighter shade of green, but it tends to shift and change a little with movement and brighter lighting, causing it to also look gold and turquoise at times. Next up are the last 2 in this collection, both of which are cremes.
