I'm Swatchin' You - Maybelline Sheer Ivory

Good Monday morning to you! Here we have another Maybelline Express Finish.  This one is called Sheer Ivory.  I had some high hopes for this color.  I just love a subtle, light color.  However, this one reminds me more of discolored nails.  The ivory has a little too much of a yellow undertone to be pleasing.  It goes on sheer, of course, but very streaky, too.  You're looking at 3 coats (which you know I hate doing) and it's still pretty uneven.  This one needs to be filed in the "for layering only" pile, and probably sandwiching at that since I wouldn't want this being my final top coat.  Oh, well...so far, I can say I will not be running out to buy any Maybelline polish anytime soon.

SH Double Duty and SH Insta-Dri...as always.


  1. I'm with you... uck. I was going to give it to you straight somehow so I was so glad to see you concurred! I think I would've taken it off as soon as I put down the camera! Win some, lose some, on to the next color! :)

    1. Exactly what I did. I will be swatching a couple more of their polishes in the next couple of days. And I'm pretty sure I can promise you that once I do, you won't see any more around here! I bought a few of their polishes sometime around 3-4 years ago to use on my daughter. But just not that impressed. I also tried their express finish topcoat - major fail.
