NOTD: Maybelline Cool Couture

Hello lacquered lovelies! How was your weekend? To all my North American friends, how was your long weekend? I hope you had a lovely time with people you care about. :)

Before I get started today, I want to say sorry about my seriously erratic posting schedule right now. I have SO many swatches sitting on my computer but I haven't gone through and edited, watermarked etc. I've been lazy. Last week was really busy, one roommate moved out, the other came back on Saturday (YAYYYYYY <3), I was working quite a bit... it was just one of those weeks, you know? Classes start tomorrow but I'm one of those people that has an easier time planning things with a concrete schedule. Last week's schedule was not concrete lol. It was all over the place, coming in to cover a shift, that sort of thing. So I'm sorry and I promise to be back and all up in your readers with a vengeance!

Alright. Today I have something pretty unusual for me, actually. I'm posting on the polish I'm wearing as I type this. I don't know why I don't do this more often but I simply couldn't resign this one to the folder of death that is my unposted swatches right now. I got this from my Jen and it's not the first polish she sent me that I chose to wear, but it's the first I'm showing. I put this on, intending to swatch it, and liked it so much that I actually didn't want to take it off, so I said "bleh" to swatching and kept it on instead. I NEVER do that.

Maybelline Cool Couture is one of those new LE fall polishes. Maybelline displays are so hit and miss here that I was thrilled when Jen scooped a couple of them up for me! Cool Couture is a really dark grey (still obviously grey though, not black, thankfully) with this awesome teal shimmer. I'm in love. Gorgeous formula too, I probably could have gotten away with one generous coat but this is two. With topcoat! I KNOW.

I used a sunlight picture to show the shimmer, but the base isn't that light... more like this. This one's in the shade. "Normal" angle too. I like the other one better but that's just me!

There you go! What do you think? Have you scooped any of these little beauties up? What's your favourite fall polish right now?

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!


  1. that's nice! i really like it, may have to look for that one.

  2. I love how it looks like two totally different colors depepnding on light. Amazing color!!

  3. Such a great dark grey!!
    Really lovely!

  4. I got this and Purple Trend - the only fall d/s display I've seen yet! So glad I snagged these, this one is gorgeous on you. It's such a cool shade.

  5. I scooped up Cool Couture and Purple Trend. I had such high hopes for Purple Trend after seeing the gorgeous blue shimmer contrast against the chocolate purple base...alas, even with flash photography, the shimmer is almost invisible. :( The base overtakes the shimmer on the nail and it looks like a cream for the most part. I don't like shimmer I have to squint my eyes to see. *le sigh* Cool Couture turned out to be my favorite of the two because the pretty shimmer (aka, the reason for buying these) was actually visible on the nail.

  6. I got 3 out of this collection ..... cool couture .. purple trend and I can't remeber the name of the other but its the blue one :-P I'm looking forward to trying cool couture asap!

  7. I love this one. I can't wait to try it!

  8. I've been looking for this & purple trend without any luck :(

  9. I grabbed this yesterday and I am in looooooove.

  10. Nice! I bought a few Maybelline polishes eons ago, but remember that the formula was awful. This is a great color though. It looks similar to Zoya Neeka, but I think Neeka has a different color of shimmer.
