Here are my Maybelline Mirror Image lovelies! Doesn't look like much in their packages, huh! When I saw these at Dollar Tree (DT) I wasn't for sure if these were going to work. They claim to give you a "mirror effect". I was really skeptical, so I only grabbed three packages of these my first trip to DT. So when I got home I tried these out, I was really anxious to see if these were going to be all they claimed they would be. Ladies - these totally are worth it! I was really impressed and knew I would be going back to DT to pick up the remaining packages of these! I now own all 8 of these, lol.
This is a two step process. First you paint your nails with the white, creamy looking one. It says not to shake this bottle. Next, after the first coat is dry, you add the silver one. The silver one looks in the bottle sort of a matte color. It also goes on the nail looking very matte as well. However, as the polish dries it starts to get that mirrored look that it claims to have. I would compare this to the pics of the Minx nails that I have seen. The package says that you can add multiple coats of this to enhance the mirror image effect. I used two coats of this.

While looking for something shiny to compare these to, I had to look no further than the Coors Light bottle I was currently consuming! It was a perfect match I think :)

So tell me, does anyone know if these are hard to find? Did I find something really cool? What do you all think of this nail polish?

I'm not exactly an expert, but I've never seen or heard of these before. I would love to stumble across them at one of my own local DT though!

COLETTE - These are AWESOME! I think the perfect base for some konading.

I think they're all cool - can't get most of them in oz at all! (I think maybe we get the SH hard as nails, but in blah colours). I'm intrigued by the mirror image ones...

NIXXY - These Mirror Image ones are the bomb! I have never seen anything come this close to a true foil finish!

WOW! I need one of those Dollar Tree stores in my neighborhood the stuff you find there is amazing.

Pretty please try to swatch that SH black with holo glitter soon, i'm dying to see it on the nail!

Brooke said...

OLGA - I will be doing some swatches of that one either tonight or tomorrow! So please check back! I think it sorta looks like My Private Jet, but I don't have anything to compare it to other than pics.
