Maybelline Blue Water & My Favorite French Manicure


I know many of you hate this polish & understandably so, but I couldn't resist buying it when I found it at the Dollar Tree. I gave it to Ashley, since my nails are a slightly stained. Blue Water is pictured on her nails with 2 coats. It's so sheer! You're thinking "Aaghhh! Why would anyone want such a polish?"

But wait! I know Blue Water is pretty scary by itself, but Ashley transformed it into one of my new favorite manicures! She added french tips in Icing My Blue Heaven and now I think it's gorgeous!

Such a lovely effect! So if you picked up the Water polishes, don't despair! Great job Ashley!

Thanks for reading!

  7. I LOVE this polish. I had it years ago and gave it away (with all my other polish) in one of my fits of insanity. I need to move to an area with a good DT lol. The french looks really nice!
