[Review] Maybelline Colorshow – 754 pow green & 120 urban turquoise PLUS nail art pen designs

Hey lovelies,

today I have the last two polishes from the Maybelline Colorshows I bought shortly before our move and the best thing, I also have 2 fun nail design for you to get you in the mood for Mara’s Birthday nail art month where I post a new nail art everyday in the month of August.

754 pow green

This is a kind of lime green color. So far I didn’t own a polish like this and I am not sure what to think of it^^
The quality of the polish is good, don’t get me wrong, but I am not sure whether I like the color or not haha

What do you think?




For the nail design I used Maybellines new nail art pen’s in turquoise and silver.
It was really fun to play with these, especially since they worked very well. I would probably not pay 5 euro for these, but since they were offered for free when you get a Colorshow polish, I must say it was more than a good deal. That’s why I bought enough polishes to get two nail art pen’s of each color haha







120 urban turquoise

This is a simple turquoise polish, it reminds me of a mix between Ciaté’s ditch the heel and Ciaté’s headliner. It’s a nice mix of blue and green even though the picture makes it look more blue. In real it looks a bit more green – simply turquoise^^
The quality is standard for the Colorshow polishes so there is not much to say about that. Application good, brush okay, dry time good.
With two coats you get a nice opaque finish.




For this nail art I used the white and silver nail art pens.

Also I don’t want to brag but I really love how this design turned out. I like the combination of the turquoise with the white and silver. Somehow it reminds me of the Henna painting I did when I was younger. I loved doing Henna Art on my hands.






How do you like these nail arts?
I would love if you re-create and share by tagging me on instagram. They were very easy and fast :)



[Review] Maybelline Colorshow – 103 marinho & 677 blackout

Hey everyone,

besides the announcement post I just made, of course I have a “normal” review post as well :)

Today we have two more of the Maybelline Colorshow polishes I bought a while ago with the nail art pens.IMG_0805

103 marinho

Marinho is a nice and I think unique dark blue polish. It is glossy and not creamy at all, but at the same time opaque with two coats. The application is also easy and I love how it somehow shimmers.

I am happy I bought it, because I don’t own any blue color like this one.





677 blackout

There is not much to say about “blackout”. It is the simple black polish everyone needs in their collection.

The brush is just right and the application easy and even. I also felt that it lasts for quite a while if you use a top coat.
With it’s price it is invincible, simply a nice black polish used as a base or a polish for nail designs.
There is only one black polish that is better for nail designs, that’s 1010N by Manhattan (Quick dry polish).





Have you tried any of these?
