Maybelline Colorama Mini Nail Color Bitter Sweets Collection

Product Breakdown:

Here’s another one of Maybelline’s new collections for 2011 – An ultra-mini collection of 2 polishes, launched in time to prepare for Autumn.

Maybelline Colorama Nail Polish 1

Fruit Juice:

This is best described as a bright cherry red creme. In fact it is so red it’s almost shocking, and sends my camera nuts!

Fruit Juice in full sunlight. Accent nail is Tart.


This is a beautiful brown based purple with a gold microshimmer through it, and is my favourite of the two.

Fruit Juice is fully opaque in three coats, although you can easily get away with 2 coats.

Tart is fully opaque in 2 coats.

Ease of application:

The brush of these polishes is quite long and floppy, which can make for a slightly more difficult application if you are used to the OPI style pro-wide brush. With a little practice and a steady hand they are ok.


My personal opinion is that longevity of a polish is more about the base-coat/top-coat combination than it is about the polish. These do not chip on me any faster than any other polish I use.


Maybelline Mini Colorama polishes are packaged in cute-as-a-button bottles that are somewhere between full-sized and sample sized.
