I was picking a few things up at CVS and these jumped right into my basket. (Plus, I had a coupon.) Sandstorm is the pinky-beige cream. Urban Utopia is the color pretending to be blue in my pictures. In real life, it's a very vivid yellow-leaning teal.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Maybelline Sandstorm
3 Coats Maybelline Urban Utopia (accent nails)
1 Coat OPI Top Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

These polishes are part of a lone group that decide exactly how they will be worn before I even purchase them. I knew I had to have Sandstorm, and Urban Utopia is a great accent color. I guess you could call it slightly trendy considering Emerald Green is Pantone Color of the Year, and this isn't too far off from that. It's a pretty shade, and I'm glad I picked it up.

Maybelline Sandstorm is a great warm neutral polish. (That sounds like an oxymoron!) I don't have anything quite this warm or pink-leaning when it comes to beiges or tans in my collection. I thought it might be a dupe for one of the polishes I already have, but thankfully, it wasn't. Yay for that!!!

Have you picked up any of the new Maybelline summer shades?
