Sunday Swatches: Maybelline Color Show Cool Canary

Hello Lovelies!

Pastels are tricky creatures, I swear I've worn this polish before with just two coats, but when I swatched it today I was up to four and still patchy before I gave in. The flash in my pictures hides the patchy finish, in the shadows they're more apparent. But I love using pastels as a base in my nail art, so I put up with it because they're so pretty.
This is Maybelline Color Show Cool Canary, it's a bleached pastel yellow creme, and as I said above this is four stinkin' coats (no topcoat.)


Thanks for visiting with me!

  3. That's a pretty shade. I struggle with pastel formulas too. Sometimes they are fine the first time, then the next time you use them, they are a completely different formula! Argh. #nailbloggerproblems. Love the new look of the blog! Thanks so much for linking up with us this week at the Best of the Blogosphere!

    1. Maybe instead of bad hair days, we get bad nail days, haha.

  4. What a lovely shade! I find that doing a coat of white polish under those pastel shades tend to help with the patchiness (sometimes...)

    1. That does help a bit, but then I end up with 4 layers of polish just to get a base going...

    1. I think I snagged this one at Big Lots? Pretty sure it's an old and/or discontinued.

  7. This looks stunning, I love how delicate and buttery it looks! I recently got a similar shade from another brand and it was the worst streaky experience of my life but this looks so smooth and flawless :D xx

  9. Pastels are not my friend for nail color. In my opinion, they make my hands look washed out. That yellow looks lovely on you though. Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have Pinned to the Bloggers Brags Broad.

  10. What a gorgeous colour! Im wearing 'Love is in the air' by Essence right now, which is a similar pastel yellow! What a perfect mani! Something about wearing a pastel in winter seems so rebellious lol :) Nice to find your blog, via the link on Ingrid's page :)
