Maybelline Bleached Neons Polishes

Maybelline has released a limited edition Bleached Neons Collection, and today I have three of the Color Show polishes* ($4.49/7 mL) to share with you! Bleached in Peach, Citrus Collide, and Pink Punch are fun, bright neon polishes that are super appropriate for Summer.

Maybelline's Citrus Collide is a creamy pale yellow. As with most yellow polishes, this formula was slightly streaking. I was able to get a fairly even finish with two thick coats. I think that this pale yellow shade would look amazing on someone with a darker skin tone!

Maybelline's Pink Punch is a bright neon Barbie pink, with the best formula out of these three polishes. The bleached effect is really cool, combining the properties of a pastel and neon polish. I used two thick coats of Pink Punch for an opaque finish.

Maybelline's Bleached in Peach is a beautiful colour, but I wasn't impressed with the formula. Even after three coats I still had streaks, pulling at the cuticles, etc. If you take your time with this polish, you can make it look a bit better. I actually removed this polish after my first attempt, started over, and I had slightly better results.

I really like the bleached neon look, but the formula of these polishes isn't perfect. However, for under $5, these are fun colours to add to your collection for Summer. These shades are limited edition, so pick them up now while they're still available!

  6. I picked up Beached in Peach and like you wasn't happy with the formula at all.

  8. Ooh, like a neon-pastel hybrid! Super pretty for summer, though too bad the formula isn't up to par!

    1. Ya, both neons and pastels are notorious for sub-par formulas, so I wasn't too surprised when these hybrids were also a bit streaky!
