Maybelline: Vanishing Venus

Thank You to everyone who entered my Apothica Gift Card Giveaway, I'll announce the winner tomorrow :)

Well I mentioned yesterday how the shimmer duo-chrome in Misa's "It's You!" reminded me of Vanishing Venus...well of course that created a serious "ear worm" in my head and thus I had to go home and put it here it is :)

"Vanishing Venus"
3 coats, with 2 coats of top coat (to make the manicure last)

I received this in a swap, and the swapper told me that her little sister went thru a sticker phase and took off all the stickers...LOL.  Being that I too went thru a "sticker phase" in grade school, I totally understood..LOL :)

Then to reassure me, she sent me bottle pics, and I knew when I saw the pics that this was DESTINY!...:):)

It's an awesome formula, red based purple shimmer with flashes of a green/blue metallic duo-chrome.  Not as metallic as Galaxy Girl from Orly, just different :)

I have Orly "Galaxy Girl", so i need to do a comparison to show the true differences, the colors are the same, but the finish is different, stay tuned :P
Pin It!

Lol@the stickers! :) And I was about to say, this color looks familiar, what is it again...but you said it right after :P Curious about the comparison!

I forgot I had this one until your pics reminded me. It does look like a relative of the Orly.

@KarenD- Yep, a definite kissin cousin..LOL
