Maybelline Purple Trend

Happy Wednesday Peeps!

So I know it’s Pink Wednesday and all, but I haven’t felt much like wearing or swatching pink nail polish lately, so I’m cheating and showing you a non-pink beauty today…

It’s Purple Trend from Maybelline‘s Fall 2011 Scene on the Runway collection.

When I first saw pics of it popping up I knew I had to get my hands on it. But after stalking my local drugstores like mad, I came up empty-handed.ย Luckily my nail polish fairy –Jana from Jeweled Tips– found me a bottle and sent it to me. She’s so sweetย and generous, and has helped me slay a few lemmings over the past few months. In fact, she’s the one that taught me the whole “nail polish karma” thing – it works people! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, Purple Trend is a really deep plum that leans a lot towards being more brown than purple. But the best part about it is it’s packed with gorgeous blue shimmer! This is a polish that I never knew I always wanted. It’s just so pretty. The blue shimmer is what makes it so unique and amazing.

In the pics below I used 2 coats. I didn’t know what to expect cuz I only own a couple of Maybelline nail polishes, but the formula was super smooth and easy to work with. (On a side note, I’m so slow…when I was swatching this I bumped a nail and it didn’t smudge and I was like, “Wow! This polish dries fast!”…Then I was like, “Oh, it’s a Maybelline EXPRESS Finish. Duh!”) Anyway, check out the pics:





Isn’t she lovely? Can you honestly tell me you don’t think this polish is beautiful?

Let me know what you think and have a happy hump day!
