Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

Close but no cigar...but close!

😉 My fellow polish geek (Sunonwater11) and I were having an Instagram chat about the similarities of these two polishes. Maybelline Color Show in Frozen Over and Sinful Colors Cinderella. I’ve owned the latter for about a year now and had never found a dupe. It’s a gorgeous pale blue with a hint of pink shimmer. Recently I found this Color Show for about half price on clearance at Target. I thought it was so close I had to do a comparison.

Frozen over is on the pointer on top, Cinderella on middle finger at bottom here.

I will mention that both formulas are sheer and watery, with the Color Show being the waterier. Is that even a word?! Both take a minimum of three coats, going as smooth as possible if you don’t want a patchy mess. It was all I could do to keep the Color Show from flooding my cuticle on the first try. But now I’ve got it’s number! Both have a gorgeous payoff. As usual, I can’t speak for how long each will last without chipping because paint never stays on long enough before I am on to the next swatch. Thank you for reading the lacquer-fumed ramblings of a polish hoarder! Please feel free to comment.

  1. Sweet! Good to know!

    • Lol now I need to go find that other one you told me about and update this post! 😉

      • haha. I know SallyH re-released the sugar coats and its now called sugar shimmer. and the color is called sugar cloud.

      • Lol, I would LOVE to know the reason cosmetic companies do that! Maybe they make a slight change to the formulas so they have to by law? Maybe it’s all about marketing? Maybe it’s just to enable us? Yeah, I’ll go with #3! 😉
