Maybelline Color Show Vintage Leather Mudslide Tote Nail Polish

This nail polish wins the title of the most gross nail polish I’ve seen. I really like Maybelline Nail Polishes as a rule, with their ‘Hot Salsa’ polish being my most worn polish of 2013. I bought this polish blindly online from the Superdrug website as the ‘Vintage Leather’ description sounded intriguing. There were four Maybelline Color Show Vintage Leather shades available to choose from (all of which are no longer available on the Superdrug website) and I opted for Mudslide Tote.

Maybelline Color Show Vintage Leather Mudslide Tote Nail Polish Review

Firstly I must address the most random nail polish name… Mudslide Tote?! I’m not sure what I was expecting, but a dark khaki green was definitely not it. In the bottle it didn’t look at all appealing, but I was still eager to give it a try. 
 
Application was poor as it was very streaky, due to the formula beginning to dry as soon as it touched the nail. Once the polish had completely dried, the finish was somewhat peculiar. The dark khaki polish had a matte finish, but was peppered in minuscule fragments of what looks like plastic?!
 
You can even see said fragments in the bottle above.. it really does look horrible on the nails, almost as if my nails are dirty. Whatsmore every nail chipped horrendously within hours. The inset photo shows the chipping experienced after just 4 hours of application which is just awful. I’ve tried it with and without a basecoat and the chipping occurs almost instantly.
 
I’ve never used a nail polish with such a bad wear time nor have I come across a nail polish with such an ugly finish. As I said, it’s no longer available on the Superdrug website so they may have pulled the Maybelline Color Show Vintage Leather polishes, however if you wanted to experience this horror for yourself, you can purchase it for £4.79 from Amazon. Just don’t.
