For me, every makeup purchase has to end with at least one nail paint. This time, I ended up with the newly launched Maybelline Color Show Gold Digger Collection. This is a collection of top coats with gold shards customized specifically for the festive season. I bought the following shades : Gold Gluttony, Gilded Rose, Dreams of Gold, Bling Thing, and Oh My Gold!. This collection is perfectly named Gold Digger as we have to literally dig out gold particles from the bottles of these clear base coats.
INR 145 each
Indulge in the festive cheer with the playful shards of gold present in Maybelline Color Show Gold Digger Collection nail paints. They are easy to apply, high shine nail colors that are perfect for the festive season.
My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Gold Digger Collection – Gold Gluttony, Gilded Rose, Dreams of Gold, Bling Thing, Oh My Gold! :
These nail paints also come in the usual bottles like other Color Show Nail Paints, but the cap is wrapped around with a blingy Maybelline Color Show Sticker with the label Gold Digger Collection.
Gold Gluttony, Dreams of Gold, and Bling Thing are basically top coats filled with gold shards. Gilded Rose has the Glitter Mania texture and can be worn on its own. Oh My Gold! is a silver nail paint with gold undertones and particles.
The Gold Digger collection is perfect for the festive season. The amazing varieties of shades would suit many different occasions such as morning weddings or night parties. Except Gilded Rose, all other shades have a nice, glossy finish. They dry super quickly as well. These nail paints do not chip off for a week, but the shards fall off within three to four days. Though the shards are densely packed, they are not at all hard to remove.
This is a thick, clear base with densely packed gold shards. The shards look like chunky bits of bright yellow gold sheets. This nail paint is to be worn on top of any dark-colored nail paint. It dries off within a minute. Three or more coats will bring out good pigmentation. I applied only two coats as I wanted the base nail paint to show off. The shards do not stay long because of their sharp edges. The clear base seals the color of the nail paint underneath, and thus it does not chip off for a week. The finish is super glossy. It is best suited for evening functions as the golden shards reflect light beautifully.
This is a rose gold glitter nail paint. It is such a sophisticated color. This nail paint has the Glitter Mania texture. It looks amazing when worn as a nail paint rather than as a top coat. Two coats will bring out good pigmentation. It gives a matte powdery finish when layered on with many coats, making the nails look artificial. It dries off in few seconds, and there are all chances of messing it if not applied quickly. The staying power is incredible. It suits best for day events as the rose gold glitter pigments sparkle in the sunlight and provide the perfect bling. This adorable color will suit all skin tones. The worst part – it is hard to remove.
Dreams of Gold:
This is a clear base with small, thin strands of gold particles. This nail paint is also to be worn on top of any dark-colored nail paint. It too dries off in a minute. Three or more coats will bring out good pigmentation. As with Gold Gluttony, I applied only two coats as I wanted the base nail paint to show off. These particles do not have sharp edges, so the staying power is amazing. The finish is super glossy. It is, again, a perfect evening color. This nail paint does not show up as bright as other Gold Digger colors. It is not a must-have color. You can indeed find many dupes for this nail paint.
This is a clear base loaded with gold and black hexagons and dots. This gorgeous nail paint creates wonders when worn on top of any light-colored nail paint. It gives such an edgy, glamourous look. This is my favorite color. I love it to bits. It too dries off in a minute. One coat itself will bring out good pigmentation. Two coats make the particles look clustered. The finish is super glossy. This nail paint has an amazing staying power. Unlike Go Graffiti Nail Paints, the particles in this nail paint do not fade away or fall off in a couple of days. This is the best color that lets our nails bling their way out in the festive season.
Oh My Gold!:
This is a shiny silver nail paint with gold undertones. It is also filled with gold sequins and leaves. As this is an opaque color, the particles are not visible at all. The nail paint itself has such a nice glittery finish. The particles add no effect to this nail paint. They could be seen only when the nail paint is viewed up close. There is nothing special for this nail paint to be included in this Gold Digger collection. It has a good staying power. This nail paint can be given a miss.
I am in love with this collection of nail paints. Once again Maybelline has delivered its best.
