Maybelline Cool Couture with China Glaze CG in the City

Now that you know that I love Halloween, I wanted to yet you know I will be participating in my first nail challenge! Not only do I get to do nail art for my favorite time of year, I also will be posting more consistently. Three times a week! While doing these art challenges, I will be adding an additional segment called "Now & Then."

Last year I was just starting to get into nail art. I had no dotting tools or anything but still tried my hardest. I will be posting my manicures from last year with this year's nail art challenges (some overlap!) and you can see how practice is the only way to perfect nail art! I'm really looking forward to showing you my first nail arts despite the low quality of photos. 

Now onto the polish which was the base of my nail art in the Halloween Nail Art Contest (vote for #26 in freehand category
HERE). I bought Maybelline Cool Couture a year ago and only NOW am I using it. It's a blue toned grey with gorgeous blue shimmer. Two coats and this is no clean up. 

With flash. LOVEEEE.

No flash but you can still see the SHIMMA.

Because I did nail art on my left hand, I wanted something simply on my right. One coat of China Glaze CG in the City. This glitter is a chameleon. Sometimes it's gray based, other times I see purple and bronze. Sorry I am awkward at posing my right hand. Two untrieds in this mani! Just an extra note, removal was SO easy with this glitter and no staining at all.  No foil needed here! All photos with flash here.

I hope you are all excited for the Fall and Halloween-themed nail art to come!


  1. Cool Couture is so gorgeous! You have reminded me that I have this color. I need to swatch it soon!

    1. Not only is it gorgeous, it wouldn't chip for days! Wear it ASAP!
