Maybelline Color Show Urban Turquoise Swatch

*This nail polish was purchased by me
Hi everyone,
So I today I thought I'd raid the archives and find some swatches I haven't got round to posting! I'm really missing blogging but the good news is I've done 1 exam - only 5 more to go! I also decided to join twitter too - something I never thought I'd do! (you can follow me here).
Anyway for today's swatch I thought I'd show you the lovely Maybelline Color Show Urban Turquoise.

This was the first Maybelline nail polish I purchased and I have to say I'm really impressed with it! I had this colour in my mind for such a long time but I could never find the exact shade I wanted (does anyone else get this?) until I walked past the Maybelline stand at my local Superdrug! As soon as I saw it I knew I had to buy it!
This nail polish is available at Boots and Superdrug for £2.99.

For these swatches I used 2 coats of Maybelline Color Show Urban Turquoise
After looking at other reviews of this nail polish I saw that this nail polish usually stains but for me it didn't. Instead of painting 1 layer of base coat (No7 Stay Perfect Base Coat) I painted 2 thin layers! I didn't think it would prevent staining but it did!

This nail polish is a bold turquoise colour which definitely stands out (in a good way of course!).
Me and my sister usually have completely different nail polish preferences, but for once we both liked this colour! It also dries with a semi-matte finish, which you can see from the photos.

The formula of this nail polish was really consistant and the brush was the medium sized which worked really well.

Here is a closer look at the nail polish:

Overall I really love this nail polish! The colour is really unique and for £2.99 you can't go wrong! I definitely think I'll be building up my Maybelline nail polish collection in the future!

Do you like this nail polish?
Have you tried any of the Maybelline Color Show nail polishes?
Let me know what you think


  1. Really really gorgeous colour! I bought my first Maybelline one the other day too! I got the 'Latte' one and a white one, I may do swatches too, because I was impressed with it also! I got the Latte one for work and it only needed 2 coats and didn't chip for ages! Great swatches, you really picked an awesome shade!

    1. You should definitely pick it up Emily! Ooh I can't wait to see your swatches! Latte is the perfect shade for work! I picked up Iced Queen as well and it's now my favourite purple - I think I'll have to post some swatches of it soon! I definitely think my Maybelline nail polish collection is going to grow now! :)

  2. Wow gorgeous colour! Very bold, but it looks amazing :) I love the Maybelline Color Show polishes, I have a few of them and never have been dissapointed in the colour or formula :)

    1. Thank you Robin! You should definitely buy this colour! :)
