Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Maybelline Street Art Collection

**all items purchased by me

(This post has been sitting in the drafts folder for a couple months...)

Time for another Maybelline collection of polishes!  Their new polishes always seem to suck me in!  I first spotted this collection at Giant Eagle (grocery store) when they were all $1 off, plus if you bought 4 Maybelline items you got bonus fuel perks.  Score!  Then I believe it was the next week, Maybelline went on sale for 40% off at Rite Aid so I got the final color - I figured I might as well complete the collection.  Which is how my stash got to be so large...  Oh, the tops of these do not say limited edition like the Brocades (and Vintage Leather [2 links]) did so these will be making their way to the core line up, if not already there.

Anyway, let's get started with the display picture.
Haul picture! (taken in my new lightbox - I can't decide if I want to do all my pictures in the box or keep doing the haul pictures on the light blue fabric)
Label and bottle shots:
~Wild at Heart is looking more orange than red in this bottle shot~
And swatches:
Blue Beats, Pink Splatter, Wild at Heart, Nighttime Noise, Green Graffiti
~Wild At Heart and Nighttime Noise are essentially 1 coat with a tiny bit of glitter placement with the brush
~Blue Beats, Pink Splatter and Green graffiti are all 2 coats

Of these, Nighttime Noise had the best formula with Wild at Heart in a close second.  The other three seemed...stiffer.  As seems to be the case with super pale pink glitters, Pink Splatter comes off more white looking than pink, but hopefully it will pull more pink over just the right base color.

As I said at the beginning of the post, these aren't limited edition so you have plenty of time to get any that catch your eye.  Walmart/Target/Bed, Bath & Beyond (if yours has a beauty section) would be the cheapest place to pick these up from compared to Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens.

What would you wear under all these matte glitter toppers?  Tame combinations or something a little more "out there"/contrasting?
