NOTD - Shooting stars & Speckled Pink

Not often do I get to paint my nails due to work, but as I have a couple of days off I thought why not give my nails a bit of bling. If you read my blog you will know that I recently brought two new nail polishes by Maybelline (here). By request from another blogger she wanted to see some swatches of the two nail polish, so I thought why not do a NOTD mix and matching them both.

The pink nail polish is called Speckled Pink and the blue nail polish is called Shooting Stars.

I know that they are very popular with some bloggers and I have to say I really like the look and the effect they give, and for £2.99 you really can't go wrong. I prefer the speckled pink as the other one doesn't really show the little sequin bits. It took two coats with both nail polishes to achieve the look in the pictures. I have tried the speckled pink before and the only problem I have is that when removing the nail polish that the sequin bits are hard to get off. I had to try and scratch the excess sequins off my nails.




So what do you think of Maybelline nail polishes?
