Maybelline Colorama Swatches and I won!!

Yay! Remember Coloramas?

But First! I want to thank everyone who took the time to vote for my entry in the Bundle Monster Facebook contest! I was one of the winners! I placed 6th!!! (WOW!) I am super excited because I never win anything and you guys made it happen for me so it means a lot!! Thank you everyone!

  I remember buying Coloramas soo much back in like 2005 or 2006. Back when I only had a few bottle of polish and actually used them up until they were gone. I have a soft spot for Coloramas. On my wedding day I remember ruining one of my nails and it was an old Colorama that my mom had saved that saved my wedding day mani. Stephanie from Imperfectly Painted sent me these Four pretties and I am so happy to have some Coloramas in my collection again.

First is the pretty Coral Reef. I am almost certain I've had this color before. I think this may have been my very first venture into bright colorful polishes. So this is pretty self explanatory lol. It is a pretty Coral-y Pink with a great creamy formula. This is two coats.

 Up next is Fuchsia Fiesta. This one is a pretty bright Pink with a slight Purple Flash throughout. This one also had a great, Two coat formula.

 This is Emerald Frost. The name really throws me off for this one. 1. It's not actually frosty at all, just very sparkly and shimmery. 2. It's not Green lol! This is a light Blue shimmer with some slight Seafoam undertones and lots of Holo Sparkles. This one needed Three coats.

 Hello Cupid's Wing. This one is a White creme with lots of Silvery Sparkle. This one is really pretty and makes me think of Christmas time. The formula was slightly thick but not terrible. For this swatch I used Two coats of color.

 And just for fun here is a swatch of Pure Ice Splash, also a gift from Stephanie. This one is a light Dusty Sky Blue foil with a somewhat sheer formula. This one took Four coats for full opacity. I still really like this color. Great for Summer!

Did you guys partake in the Coloramas? I miss them They always had the cutest colors and they were so cheap. I remember I looved these little Colorama bottles and I'd find myself buying them because the bottles were so darn cute lol. I still kind of do that. Do any of you guys do that too?

What old school polishes do you miss?
