Beauty Box: Right Now I’m Lovin’


Colours clockwise starting left: Mauve Kiss, An Old Flame, Electric Yellow, Frozen Over, Petal Plush

I’m sure by now you know that I love colour. The bolder, the better. And that isn’t more evident than the fact that if my nails aren’t painted, I’m not a happy chappy. So right now, favourite nail polish range is Maybelline’s Color Show.

  • As with everything, I’m very particular about my nail polishes and loathe spending a lot on a bottle only for it to chip at the same time as a cheaper one.
  • They don’t streak, so two even coats are enough for a bold finish. I usually slap on a top coat just to make them pop a bit more.
  • Once on, my DIY mani lasts for about 7 solid days.

My fave of my collection is the Mauve Kiss shade. Funnily enough, it’s a nude colour but what I love most about it? It’s a Black girl nude! So it’s a creamy light brown that just looks oh so chic. Again, I love colour so for me to not only like, but LOVE a polish range where my favourite shade is the nude one, it’s that yummy.


How GORGE is that nude? I’m currently obsessed with it.

Call me weird, but I also love the bottle they come in. They look so pretty all together on my nail polish shelf. Yes, I’m that girl. You can get the Color Show polishes from your local Clicks and Dischem. Cherry on top? They retail for about R40 each. With shades like turquoise to yellow, the range has a fun selection for the fellow colour lover.
