Maybelline Summer- Banana Bamba, Summer Splash & Orange Ole

I'm guessing these are from a summer collection this year but I can't seem to find any information on them online. I just know I found them recently in a new display at my local CVS and while the colors aren't anything new and exciting they were quite nice for Maybelline and a nice pop of color to the often bland drug store displays. Here are the three I picked up:

Summer Splash is a nice blue cream, I don't quite have anything this color in my collection. I want to say this might be close to Ogre The Top Blue from the Shrek OPI collection but I don't own it so I can't. My brush in this one was a little wonky- a few extra long bristles so the application was a little messy. And because I'm so impatient when swatching I got some bald spots but I think if this wasn't rushed it would be gorgeous. This was 2 coats, no top coat.

Banana Bamba is a light yellow with a little bit of shimmer to it (I thought this was a cream in store but I'm kind of happy it wasn't though). I thought this was going to be close to one of the many yellows I own but nope. Closest was Orly Spark but it was still no where near a dupe. For a yellow (not to mention a Maybelline polish) this had excellent application! 3 coats, no top coat.

Orange Ole is my favorite and a delicious perfect "primary" orange cream. Yes, I know orange isn't a primary but this is the perfect basic orange color. It reminds me of childrens toys and I really enjoyed wearing this. I really don't have a lot of orange in my collection and those that I do have I don't think I have a single orange cream. They always seem to be more gold or lighter orange so this is a welcome addition to my polish family. And check out my poor little thumb nail :( He is in rough shape! This was 3 coats and a coat of Seche.
I will also mention, I'm sorry for lack of updates! I had a bunch of photos ready to put up and then the laptop I typically use had some issues and reset on me while I was moving the folder and it went POOF and was no where to be found :( Since then we reformatted and it has been behaving better but now I'm behind!

I've always liked Express Finish. Perhaps it's a body chemistry thing.
That blue is a good colour.

I wonder if they sell this line in the UK now...All that Maybelline seems seems to have over here are the standard neutral shades :/ Shame, that blue is gorgeous!
