Summer is the best time to play with colors! When it comes to nail polishes, Maybelline is one of the best ones for me. Maybelline has recently launched some new nail lacquer collection and I love these five the most among all their nail colors ranges. I had wanted to do this post for long, but somehow I could not remove the beautiful nail colors to paint another one. All the colors are super trendy and stylish.

My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Glowing Wine 704 Bright Spark Nail Lacquer:
I have the shade Glowing Wine here. First of all, the name of this shade is very nice. This is actually a true wine shade. Packaging is similar as the other Maybelline Color Show nail polishes. This Glowing Wine has a bright metallic glow. It gives a sparking effect and instantly jazzes up my nails. That’s why I love this shade! It’s a perfect shade for winter. The texture of these nail paints is creamy, and beautiful and give non-streaky application. Pigmentation is great of this particular nail color; just one coat is gives quite good coverage. What is great about this nail polish is that it dries very fast like within a matter of 2-3 minutes. Staying power is also good; it stays perfectly for 5-6 days on my nails.
Pros of Maybelline Color Show Glowing Wine 704 Bright Spark Nail Lacquer:
• True wine color
• Sparkling effect, Metallic glow
• Great pigmentation
• Creamy texture
• Dries quickly
• Decent staying power 5-6 days.
Cons of Maybelline Color Show Glowing Wine 704 Bright Spark Nail Lacquer:
• Stains nails as well as fingers
My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Green Graffiti, Star Struck, Flower Power Go Graffiti Nail Lacquer:
This is, I think, one the best collections of nail paints Maybelline has! As per the names, the shades are all funky too. I have 2 top coat and one nail color from this range. All the colors are very summery. I can’t stop myself from staring at my nails, even in the examination hall. Packaging is cute cylindrical bottle and black cap. The bottle looks pretty cute and you can easily identify the nail color with the pattern. Applicator is also good to use.
Now, all the Colors are really beautiful and ya, you are spoilt for choice when picking these up! The quality of these nail polishes is quite thick in texture. Gel to creamy & thick. It might get slightly sticky. And, it takes some time to dry up properly. It has an amazing glow to it. This is the loveliest part. Pigmentation is great. Need two coats for the color to truly show up and also for the nail arts. Staying power is great. It stays on my nails for more than 1 week. But, it’s really hard to remove these dots. It takes long time to get removed properly.
Green Graffiti 804:
This is a green nail polish which is contains small orange and sky blue hexagonal dots in it. It’s quite a pastel shade which is perfect for beaches! I did not like this shade too much, but the blue and orange dots give a cute look to this green color. It looks smooth and sober on nails. Actually, I am girl who loves bright color, so wanted it to be brighter (I am using the Star Struck one on the ring finger here).
Star Struck 802:
It has a clear base with medium sized blue hexes, and star with some mild white dots also. The combination of this nail coat is really impressive. It’s somehow reminds me of my childhood. I used to be crazy for star nail polish back then. This shade can be used both as a top coat and as an individual nail polish. I am using here as a top coat with a yellow and pink nail color. This makes the shade more prominent and bright. Some time, the stars do not stay long enough on the nails owing to their sharp edges.
Flower Power 801:
Most of the girls always love flowers. If you too are one of them, go for this one! Flower Power has small white hexes and peachy orange medium hexes with big white five petal flowers. It is also a gel base nail coat as well as you can use it as an individual nail paint. This is the cutest one in the range. Flower Power looks really lovely. I wore it over a blue nail polish to highlight the flowers more. You need to position the flowers properly and carefully to make them stay put.
Pros of Maybelline Color Show Green Graffiti, Star Struck, Flower Power Go Graffiti Nail Lacquer:
• This range looks amazing on nails
• Cute and attractive packaging
• Makes nail art super easy
• Reasonably priced
• Glowing effect
• Need only two coats
• Great staying power; more than 1 week
Cons of Maybelline Color Show Green Graffiti, Star Struck, Flower Power Go Graffiti Nail Lacquer:
• Tough to remove
• Star and flower need to be fixed properly
My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Matinee Mauve 605 Glitter Mania Nail Lacquer:
This one is from the Glitter Mania range. Glitter Mania is a quite popular range of Maybelline India. I already have four colors from this range. This is the new one I just got. I love this name, very stylish. It’s a mauve color. I am not a fan of mauve, but this one looks beautiful. This is like a dark pink shade or purple base with tiny purple glitters. It contains silver glitters too.
The nail paint is simply saturated with glitters, a single stroke deposits a whole lot of glitter. A single coat does give good coverage of color. But, two is good to get the true color. I love the sand like finish it gives. The staying power is good as well. It stays 5-6 days properly. I actually change my nail color every week, so it hard to say if it will stay more than that. This nail color and its texture give an elegant and classy look. This is perfect for party. It’s also hard to remove.
Pros of Maybelline Color Show Matinee Mauve 605 Glitter Mania Nail Lacquer:
• Perfectly priced
• Unique sand texture
• Glitter looks classy, not cheap
• Looks beautiful on nails
• Very pigmented
• Superb mauve color
• Decent staying power
• Shine stays for long
Cons of Maybelline Color Show Matinee Mauve 605 Glitter Mania Nail Lacquer:
• Hard to remove
