Soaper1 and I had some discussion on whether or not to feature Maybelline Pie in the Sky, as it was part of a (recent) limited edition collection, and by now may be somewhat difficult to find. Â We decided it was better to add the swatches to the existing body of polish-swatch work out there.
Here’s Soaper1′s review:
Maybelline Pie in the Sky is part ofÂ their Spring 2010 Sweet ThingÂ collection.Â This collection included Minty, Goody Plum Drop, Sweet Clementine, Candy Coated, Pink Sophistication, Bubble Pink, and Sweetie Pie.
These polishes attracted a fair amount of internet discussion, because the formula is quite thick, and Maybelline seems to have stopped adding mixing balls to their bottles. Without the balls, it’s really hard to get theÂ pigments dispersed when you shake the bottles.
This photo is 3 coats over myÂ usual base coats, Poshe 4-in-1 and one coat of Gelous,Â topped with 1 coatÂ of Seche Vite.Â I didn’t personally have a lot of application issues, but I did threeÂ fairly thick coats.
