Christmas Party Nails – Blogmas Day 11

Yesterday was my work Christmas party and I tried Maybelline nail varnish for the first time. I’m not quite sure how I haven’t tried their range until now cos I have been missing out. It. Is. Amazing!

I haven’t worn nail varnish in about three months and I wanted something in a nude colour to match my lips. I got the shade ‘301 Love this sweater’, for every nail except my ring finger where I applied ‘232 Rose chic’. I had a similar look when I got married (see pic below).

The first layer went on perfectly, really smooth with a lovely finish. It also dried quickly too. The second layer looked bad as I was applying it and panic ran through my mind as I feared having to sort it out. Lo and behold, even though it looked like I had applied the nail varnish in the dark while wet, it dried sleek and very professional looking.

As a top coat, I used the Super Stay 3D Gel, as I got 3 for 2 on Maybelline products in Superdrug. It had a strange looking horseshoe shaped brush which kept a lot of the nail varnish on the bristles. I think this is designed to give the plumping effect.

The quality of this nail varnish is far superior to more expensive high street brands. It is chip and nick free as well and I definitely think it will continue that way for days if not a week or so. I love the colour, shade range and price point.

Have you tried any Maybelline nail varnishes and if not, what will you be using for your Christmas party look? Bx
