Maybelline: Colorama Swatches

Today is a special day- it's my 21st birthday! I've been running around all day trying to do catch up from yesterday. I did have time to do a celebratory birthday shot with my grandpa though :).
Today I'm showing you some of the Colorama top coats I have. These have been showing up at big lots lately. I got mine through a swap and also on amazon.
Give Me The Chills, Shimmer Girl, Sonic Sunset, Pink Piñata, and Blazes Of Blue.
All of these are layered over Wet N Wild Black Creme.

This is 1 coat of Give Me The Chills.

Give Me The Chills has thin string glitter that shines orange in it. It kind of looks like hair.

I'm torn how I feel about this polish. I think it's cool and edgy but I also feel like it's kinda strange too.

It gives the polish such a strange look.

This is 1 coat of Shimmer Girl.

Shimmer Girl is a flakie polish that shines orange and green. 

Flakie polishes are always cool to look at.


This is 1 coat of Sonic Sunset.

Sonic Sunset is a flakie polish that shines orange and green. 

It seems like it shines less green than Shimmer Girl but it could just be the light.

I was having a hard time capturing the flakies.

This is 1 coat of Pink Piñata.

Pink Piñata is a polish that shines green and orange.

It pretty much looks just like the other two.

You can see a bit of the green in this picture.

This is 1 coat of Blazes of Blue.

Blazes of Blue is a blue glitter top coat. This one turned out to be my favorite.

It really pops against the black.

Grrr you can see all the glitter here :(.

And now for fun...
On the wheel comparison. 2,3, and 4 are pretty much the same.

I probably only needed ONE of these, huh?


  1. These are really nice. I have an aversion to the line glitter though - just don't like 'em. One of my favourites is the last one, I love how it makes the black look. BTW............

  2. Oooh very pretty! I love the blue flakies(=

  3. Happy birthday, girl!! I wish you tons of health, hapiness, love and of course nail polish! :D
