- Maybelline SuperStay: Uptown Blue...

I've finally ditched the deep berries, sultry reds and sparkly glitter polishes, and started to welcome in brighter hues. I've seen a lot of fellow beauty bloggers raving about the Maybelline Forever Strong SuperStay 7 Days range, so I thought I'd give one a go. From reading reviews, I had no idea there were so many shades available; there are around 50 on the Boots website!

This post features 'Uptown Blue' - an eye catching sky blue. I love light yet bright shades like this, and think they look great with the (hopefully) corresponding weather. The brush on these polishes is curved, allowing perfect precision when applying. In my opinion, the size and shape of the brush are spot on. Not only was I pleased with this, but also the formula itself. The colour is rich after two coats and the finish is super shiny and glossy. I'm normally one of those people who applies nail polish and then it somehow chips a few hours later, but this was chip-free for days!

Costing just £4.49 each, these are the perfect budget buy (psst & they're currently 3 for 2). Uptown Blue has made it into my top bundle of nail shades; the perfect colour to enter into Spring!

Have you tried this range? What do you think of this shade?

  3. Very nice spring colour and something different to all the baby pink or mint green pastels. Haven't had a Maybelline nail polish yet but it seems a bargain for £4.49. Well picked Karen :)

  11. This is a beautiful shade of blue! I love blue nail polish all year round. Lighter blues during the warmer months and darker in the winter. Love this shade!

  12. I always hated blue nails, they reminded me of dead people (sorry to be morbid!), but last year I fell in love with a Essie one and haven't stopped wearing it. Think a Boots trip is needed!
