Old NOTD: Maybelline Banana Puddin'

Found this on eBay one night for a reasonable price (including shipping from the UK)! I'm not usually one to care for HTFs but in my everlasting quest to find awesome yellows, I felt I needed to add this one to the collex!

Maybelline Banana Puddin'

First off... BUBBLE CITY. I never had huge problems with bubbles and then all of a sudden, all the accumulated bubbles from manis past came to plague this mani! Could have something to do with the fact that it took six coats to get this completely opaque. It applies very smoothly and evenly but it's so sheer! Luckily, the formula's super easy to work with so six coats was relatively easy, though longer than I usually spend on manis. I love this color though: a great pastel that doesn't look chalky.

It's nice that it isn't chalky, too bad that it is a pain to apply.

I found with Maybelline polishes that they work best when the bottles have sat upright overnight and haven't been shaken or agitated for hours before polishing. I've brought Maybellines home from the drugstore and had terrible bubbling if I apply them right after walking to my apartment. I hope that helps.

The color is lovely. I can see why it's so hunted.

It's a lovely shade. It does look like pudding. Shame about all the bubbles.

maybe the six coats could have contributed to the bubbles. it still looks nice
