Everyone needs a good nude in their life when it comes to nail varnish, today’s post is about a nail vanish I purchased a while back and have since repurchased as its just that good, let me introduce you to Maybelline Colour Show Nail Polish in Love This Sweater 301.
I think no matter what period of fashion we are in, there are 2 colours of nail polish you can never go wrong with; reds and nudes. Both shades tend to almost go with any outfit and can either be dramatic (In the case of the reds) or a subtle polished look (In the case of the nudes). Finding the right nude can be tricky though because of skin tones, it can look too stark or too dark and finding one that works for almost anyone is quite hard. That was until I found Love This Sweater in 301, part of the Color Show nail polish range by Maybelline.
Firstly the formula is lovely to work with, it dries reasonably fast and isn’t too thick either. Unlike many nude nail polishes, they can need a few coats to get that good opaque look, however I found 2 coats of this polish were another.
The finish is a nice, high gloss finish, it looks natural (Not thick like a gel polish) and when it comes to longevity, I find I can get about 3-4 days without chipping (Although bare this in mind its different for everyone and a good base coat and top coat can help).
Love This Sweater is a beautiful nude taupe, its on the warmer side of the taupe spectrum and looks perfect on any shapes nails. If I was to liken this to a lipstick I would say a little lighter than Velvet Teddy by MAC. Its a beautiful shade and I love wearing it when my nails are in a stiletto shape or a long square shape. Although this has graced my nails in all different lengths and styles. This is my second purchase of Love This Sweater and its a shade I can see me continuing to purchase in the future (As long as they don’t discontinue it!!).
