It was my birthday on the 30th and I bought a lot of Maybelline Colorshow nail paints when I went shopping for it. The moment I got them the first thing that came to my mind was to review it here. All the colors that I got are very pretty. The ones that I will be reviewing today are:
• Crazy Berry
• Choco Sin
• Tenacious Teal
• Keep up the flame
• Fiesty Fuschia
• Orange Fix
All the shades are very bright and have no shimmer at all.

Directions for use:
To begin with apply a clear base coat, to prevent your nails from yellowing. It also helps your nail color last longer. Paint the first line of nail polish from the centre of your nail starting from the base to the tip. Leave a small space at the base of the nail to get a clean look. Then apply nail color to the rest of the nail.
My take on Maybelline Colorshow Nail Paints:
The nail paints come in cute glass bottles with a black cap. The bottle is cylindrical in shape. The color is clearly visible from the bottle and the shade number and color are written on the top of the cap. Coming on to the brush, it is very easy to use. It just takes out the right quantity required and doesn’t leave any marks.
At this price, the nail paints are pigmented very well and have the perfect texture. When I am in a hurry, I just apply a single coat and I am ready to go. The second coat does bring out the perfect color. It has been advised to apply a base coat but I skip it often and I still haven’t seen any yellowing of nails. You need to shake them before using otherwise it may turn out to be a little thick for application. The nail paints dry out fast. It stays on for good 5-6 days. I do observe some chipping after 3-4 days but at this price it is not an issue.
Coming on the shades:
Crazy Berry: It is a deep purple shade. It is a must have shade for every purple lover like me. The shade would suit people with fair hands a lot. It is a shade perfect for night time makeup.
Choco Sin: It is the lone brown shade I have till now. It looks superb on our nails. I love it to the core because it can be used as an everyday shade. The name is apt for the shade and sometimes it does make we want to drink hot chocolate.
Tenacious Teal: It is a subtle green shade with a blue tint. You just need to apply a single coat to get the opaque shade. It has become my recent favorite shade and even my nails love it too.
Keep up the flame: The range doesn’t have many reds to choose from. This shade is a bright red shade. It is not too deep but just perfect. It is an apt shade for the current wedding season.
Fiesty Fuschia: It a neon pink shade. It is a pink shade every girl wishes to have in her collection. It can be used for daily application as it just brightens your day and which girl doesn’t love pink.
Orange Fix: It is a bright orange shade. It has slight runny consistency than other shades and you need to apply two coats of it to get the perfect opaque finish.
Pros of Maybelline Colorshow Nail Paints :
• Pretty shades and wide range to choose from.
• Cute packaging
• Applicator is just perfect.
• Staying power is good.
• Well pigmented.
Cons of Maybelline Colorshow Nail Paints :
At this price, I don’t find any cons with these nail paints.
