Limited Edition Holiday 2012: Maybelline Sequins by Color Show Nail Polish, “Sea-quins,” Photographs, Review, & Swatches


Maybelline has come out with a super limited edition collection for the month of November only called Sequins by Color Show. The collection includes eight glitter-tastic shades that are absolutely perfect for the holiday season. I received Sea-Quins for review, and from the second I laid eyes on it, I knew it was going to be beautiful. The effect of the glitter and color inside of the nail polish is quite unique, and it really stands out when it’s on your nails! I’ve got my review and swatches inside of this extraordinary nail polish…




Apparently, what makes this nail polish unique is a transparent suspension gel that holds these concentrated pigments in their truest form for crisper color and ultra high shine. These also have a mixture of fine and larger pieces of glitter that mimic the look of sequins. I also noticed that there are pieces of bright blue flakes inside of the polish. Combined together, the color was very vivid and bold, and had a ton of shine and glitz to it.





Sea-Quins is a mermaid blue with pieces of large and small glitter in it, as well as blue flakes. The actual formula is interesting, as it can be a little on the thick side due to the larger pieces of glitter clumping up. The way to avoid this is to make sure you’re not putting too much on the brush at a time. I tend to get overzealous and apply too much polish at once. Two thin, even coats will help this polish go on perfectly smooth and opaque. Off the bat, I noticed how bright and vivid the blue was in this polish. It is really a stunning shade, and the different textures of glitter in it make it stand out. I like that the glitter looks like it is “inside” of the nail polish, rather than just sitting on top of it. It really reminds me of a clear blue sea, when you can see straight down into it. Adding a top coat just made everything even more shiny!



Overall: I really love the way these nail polishes look! They are full of glitz and glam, and have a really unique, bold coloring to them. I think I want to go back for the purple shade myself!
