New Maybelline Sweet Thing Swatches

First up is Sweet Clementine. It is a really pretty shade. This is three coats with poshe on top. The application was a nightmare. Imagine... painting with curdled milk. It was gelatinous and stringy and goopy and horrible. I like the color. It evened out when it dried. But, there were these weird goopy bits in all three of these colors. They smoothed out but made application tricky. Very weird.
Pie in the sky. Pretty periwinkle blue. This is three coats with no top coat.
Minty. Lovely shade. Awful application! This is three coats with no top coat.

I didn't get lumpy stuff in mine, but application was terrible for me. I swear there were little cotton stings in mine! I washed my hands with a nail brush after taking of my nail polish and both times I got cotton threads/strings gunking up the application. Not to mention my brushes were a total nightmare, all uneven and just hard to use. I can't believe you didn't get the purple one! I didn't see the green one when I went to my Walgreens, but I think I read that they were on another display.

Great swatches :)

I've seen the complain about application issue for these bottles a few times and am disappointed. The colours are so nice but if they are a pain to apply, are they worth it?

Those are gorgeous colors!

Your swatches are lovely! What a pity that the application issues seem to be a problem for everyone, though. I hate that!

The colors are so pretty but I also have one of the new Maybelline polishes and they're all watery and runny. Their old polishes weren't runny o_O

These look lovely on you and I'm digging your new nail length and shape.

About the gloopy consistency you and others are running into - I wonder what temperature it is when you are applying it and what your humidity level is. See I've never had that with any nail polish and I have about a dozen of the Maybelline Express Finish ones, including the new blue and purple ones. However, I live in the Sonoran Desert and it is quite warm out and dry, so maybe the climate is what's causing the problems where you are. We do get the problem here in the summer with the bottles cracking but that's only if the glass top/shoulders of the bottle are square. So I only buy ones with rounded glass shoulders.
