Maybelline Color Show Cocktail Dress

Have you entered the raffle/giveaway??

I spotted the Maybelline Color Show Sequins collection display at Rite Aid. I was kind of shocked because I rarely find limited edition drugstore collections but this Rite Aid has been really on the ball of late with nail polish. Lucky me it is my Rite Aid and I am there at least once a week. Woot! I ended up buying all but the silver and gold polishes from the Sequin collection and I wore Cocktail Dress first. 

This polish confuses me. It looks like black glitter with orange bits in the bottle but once on the nail I can see it is a dusty black or a charcoal glitter with muted red larger glitter pieces. The formula is dense and I didn't need to wear a base color and I found it had a dry formula. Hard to describe but it does eat topcoat. The below photos are two coats of polish and four coats of topcoat and it is still dull looking and a bit rough to the touch. Cocktail Dress has a subtle sparkle from the red glitter but it's not a blingy glitter. 

I think this is a perfect color to flip Hurricane Sandy the finger. If you are in her path please stay safe, warm and dry!
