Maybelline Color Show Blue Freeze

took our dogs out to lunch today... i can't get enough of being able to take them to restaurants with us! we also registered Jewels for Obedience 1... i've never taken an obedience class before, or rather... taken my dog to one... so, it will be a huge learning experience for both of us. the plan is to work towards taking agility classes one day :) one of my very best friends does agility with her dog and loves it, so i thought i'd try it out. i really wish we lived closer together (we're only an entire continent apart) so we could take classes together eventually!

i'm happy to finally be reviewing Maybelline Color Show Blue Freeze today! i saw the display and posted a blog about it here, but haven't gotten around to actually trying out the polish until today. Blue Freeze is a navy blue that's sparkles with pink and blue shimmers... it's delicious! the only disappointment is that it looks like it might be a bit duochrome in the bottle, but it doesn't translate to the nail at all. it only needs two coats... i was absolutely shocked, i thought with a price tag of under three bucks, it was sure to be a tragedy. wrong wrong wrong! this is beautiful and super easy to work with, its brush is medium length and thickness, no complaints there either. i did use two coats of Seche Vite on top (as i do with most shimmers) to make sure as many sparkles showed up as possible!

one coat Orly Nailtrition, two coats Blue Freeze, two coat Seche Vite.

you can see a slight wrinkle on my pinky nail... i think the SV must have still been a little wet on the finger when i applied the second coat... booooo. i'm planning on heading to Walmart tomorrow, i will definitely be checking to see if i can find any more of these babies to try out! Ria :)

so far, i've only seen the display for these at Walmart and the price tag was under three bucks... they are probably at other drugstores, though... chain stores aren't nearly as accessible in Monterey as they were in Virginia Beach, so i'm not in them very much anymore!
