Retro Sunday Squared - Maybelline Electric Apple

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Today Dana and I are back for another edition of Retro Sunday Squared! For those just joining us, Retro Sunday Squared is when Dana over at Polished Claws Up and I share some of our vintage nail polish gems. We have chosen to showcase some of our vintage Maybelline Express Finish polishes on this fine Sunday in January. Vintage Maybellines are some of Dana's and my favorite old school polishes, and for good reason - they are awesome! They had so many fantastic collections, finishes, and colors back in the day. Due to time constraints, we are only going to show one polish each today but I promise they are good ones!

I have to share with you all today Maybelline Electric Apple. Electric Apple is a lovely (albeit frosty) bright apple green polish. I first fell in love with this shade when Kaz over at Pretty Random swatched this for her blog. Her picture of it is much more beautiful so definitely check it out! Anyways, Electric Apple never was released in the US, so not only is it vintage, but it is even more hard to find because it was released in the UK and not here in the States. I ended up finding this on Amazon UK. Oh, the places we will go to find our vintage polishes! This bright, metallic green polish is definitely one of the stand outs in my Maybelline collection. The frostiness lends itself to the metallic finish and I don't mind it at all. I know frost is the devil in the nail polish world, but as I've said before, I have a certain affinity for frosty polishes.

So pictured here is 3 coats of Maybelline Electric Apple in all of its frosty glory! Enjoy =)





Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to check out Dana's post over at Polished Claws Up!
