Maybelline MNY 469

Hello everyone!

The other day I was doing my regular shopping in Auchan... and found out that they sold this new Maybelline polishes called MNY, at 4.0 euros a bottle. I thought  #469 looked very, very cute and decided to give it a try.

So here it is! Nice perfectly cylindrical bottle - which actually is not that great in terms of brush manipulation.

The brush itself is soft. Very soft. I'm used to stiffer brushes, which oppose a certain resistance when "painting" the nail. Well, this one is so soft that you can easily crush it against the nail, almost without any effort. But I've rapidly got used to it, and the formula is pretty good, so this made everything easier. In the end it layered very smoothly.

The colour is beautiful! It's a deep vampy brown with duochomed green/puple shimmer in it! So gorgeous! It comes alive in the sun... I'm always a fool for these "lit from within" kind of polishes ;).

Here I'm wearing 2 coats of MNY #469 and 1 coat of NailTek Quicken:

Has any of you heard of this new Maybelline release yet? Or maybe it's not new at all and I'm completely living on Mars? Do you have it in the USA? I know, it says Maybelline NewYork, but it's.. made in France ;D LOL

Ok, I've gotta to go now, got a volley-ball match in one hour!! :O

See ya soon!

  2. I love dark colors like this! I have not seen this Maybelline before :D

  3. @Ruxi: deci traiesc pe Marte :) Kestia e ca eu nu am mai vazut pana acuma, desi petrec o gramada de vreme la Monoprix si Sephora.
