Maybelline Colorama Cherry Sweet

I love the way this polish looks in the bottle, but the first time I tried it on, I wasn't satisfied.
It took three coats to achieve opaqueness, and it was still sheer on the tips of my nails. Actually, it is a jelly polish.

And I don't like jellys on me. I never have such long and perfectly shaped nails that can take a jelly polish.

So I put one coat of some tomato red polish (I don't know which one anymore) and then topped it with CS.
And I liked the result.
Only two coats all together and it dried quickly. Nice mani with no effort at all.

The best photo, that shows best the glitter in CS, was taken in shade, so the color may not be completely accurate. The color is more warm, tomato, strawberry (cherry?) red, instead of this colder tone I got in the photo.
But still, this photo shows the best of this mani: it shines like crazy!

And the color accurate photos in the sun.



  1. Gorgeous shade, but I've never seen it among Coloramas.. You are lucky to own it :)
