Hello lovelies,

This is my first nail polish post on IMBB and I took quite a long time to get done with this review. Summers are here and I picked a few nail paints from my all-time favourite drugstore brand, Maybelline. Among these nail paints some are glittery whereas some give a classy matte finish. I will be reviewing all of them today. Without much delay, let’s get started with the review.

My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish:

Packaging:
The nail polishes that I am going to review today are from three different Color Show ranges of Maybelline: Party Girl range, Bright Matte Range and Glitter Mania range. Even though they belong to different ranges, there is no variation in the packaging of these nail polishes. They come in the same round shaped glass bottle with a black cap on it. The brush applicator is attached to the black cap of the bottle.

The brush picks a decent amount of product and is perfect for applying nail polish flawlessly. The shade name of the nail polish is mentioned on the top of the black cap. Only for the Bright Matte variant, the body of the bottle has a beautiful, frosted matte kind of finish which further enhances the packaging value. Overall, the packaging is travel-friendly, attractive and cute. But these are not sturdy since if you drop them, the bottle is likely to get smashed into pieces

My Experience with Maybelline New York Color Show Party Girl Nail Paints:

Texture and Finish:
This range is specifically meant for you if you are going to a party and want glittery nails that shine like a bomb. The nail polishes are designed in a way so that they can be used as a glitter top coat over your normal nail paint. Each of the shades in this range has a party like a glittery texture. The texture of this nail paint is quite awesome. It contains lots of chunky glitters which looks gorgeous when applied on nails.

The consistency is medium-thin and can be applied to the nails easily without any tugging or pulling. It contains both medium sized as well as micro-sized glitters. The nail polish can be applied to the nails smoothly and it gives an even finish. However, while applying the nail paint, glitters have a tendency to spread unevenly, so you have to handle the brush smartly to diffuse the glitters on the entire nail.

It definitely is not quick drying nail paint. It takes about 10-15 minutes to dry down completely, so you cannot touch anything within this time to avoid transferring on objects. After this nail paint dries down completely, it settles to high-shine glittery nail paint and looks perfect for parties. The colour payoff of these nail paints are quite good, so you can use them as individual nail paints also. While experimenting with these nail paints, I used them as an individual nail paint to test their effective performance as a stand-alone nail lacquer.

Shades:
This range has a total of 8 nail paints and the colour variety offered is really good. From subtle pink glitter shades to bold red glitter nail paints, you will find a nail paint that compliments your choice aptly. I really love the shade range. The nail paints are perfectly pigment packed and the colour shows up well on the nails vividly. If you are using it as individual nail paint, you would need 2-3 strokes to achieve the perfect colour payoff.

However, if you want o use this nail paint as a top-coat glitter, only a single stroke is enough and you will have party-ready nails. I bought three nail paints from this range and the colours I have chosen are both from bold as well as muted glitter families. This is because I would not wear bold glitter nail paint on an everyday basis. I got the shades ‘Fireworks’ and ‘Rock the Night’ especially for party wear. For every day wear purpose, I got a muted glitter paint in the shade ‘Blushing Bubbly’. Let’s define each of these shades individually.

Blushing Bubbly:

This is a very pretty baby pink glitter nail paint which is not very abundant in glitter. There are no visible chunky medium-sized silver glitters; it just contains very fine micro-sized baby pink glitters which mix well with the base pink colour. It actually looks quite pinky when worn alone as an individual nail paint. The colour looks muted but very classy. I personally love these kinds of nail paints. It can be worn on an everyday basis and will go preferably with fair to medium complexions.

Fireworks:

This is a beautiful red based glitter nail paint which contains a lot of chunky silver glitters and micro-sized glitters which looks very beautiful. It is perfect to match up with your little red dress. If you are going for evening parties, then this red glitter nail paint is the perfect pick. It looks very sophisticated on nails and glams up the nails. This colour will suit all skin tones. I love this nail paint a lot. The colour payoff is amazing and I prefer wearing it as individual nail paint. You can also use it a top coat over a base colour. It will preferably go with black base colours.

Rock The Night:

This shade is a bold and beautiful dark blue shade which contains dark blue and golden shimmer suspended in a blue base colour. The dark blue glitters in this nail paint, when diffused with the blue base colour, gives a gorgeous look to the nails. The golden glitters are however not very prominent but they do give a beautiful golden bluish shine to the nails. This colour is less pigmented compared to the other two shades that I picked and requires multiple strokes to achieve the perfect glitter finish. Overall, this is a great party shade and I love this shade a lot

Staying Power:
These nail paints stay really long, for about 10-15 days on my nails. After 10 days of application, I noticed slight chipping of the colours from the ends of the nails. But still after chipping off, the glow looked very fresh and there was not much variation in the colour intensity. From a drugstore brand like Maybelline, I did not expect this long staying period, so I am really amazed. If you don’t engage yourself in household chores much, you will have a long staying period. But if you do household chores, use a transparent topcoat over this to ensure a longer staying period.

Coming to the removal of these nail paints, it is really tough to remove glitter based nail paints. With normal removers, you would actually end up using a lot of product. Better dab nail polish remover on a piece of cotton and keep it pressed for some time on your nails. This step comparatively helps in easier removal. But then again, the removal would not be as easy as you have with normal nail paints.

Overall:
I am very impressed with the texture and quality of these nails paints. My personal favourite is ‘Blushing Bubbly’ and I wear it quite often. The staying power is like OMG!!! I can’t stop falling in love these nail paints. These are perfect for parties. Be a stunner and grab a few nail paints from this range.

IMBB Rating: 4.8/5
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Maybelline New York Color Show Party Girl Nail Paints?
Yes, surely.

My Experience with Maybelline New York Color Show Bright Matte Nail Paints:

Texture and Finish:
This is a beautiful matte nail paint range from Maybelline. The nail paints in this range are very easy to work with and a very smooth medium-thick texture. It glides on the nails effortlessly and occupies the nails evenly without any tugging. These nail paints dry down really fast, so you wouldn’t have to wait hours to get your nails done. These are quick drying nail enamels. The finish is perfectly matte and looks very beautiful on the nails. These days matte nails are trending everywhere and I love matte nail polishes. Overall, the formulation and quality is really good for a matte nail paint

Shades:
This range has about 6 shades, but the shade selection in this range is not diverse. Mostly, colours from pink, red and orange families are found in this range. Shade variety wise, it is quite depressing as I was expecting more options from Maybelline. I would have picked more shades if the colour range was varied. Anyway, I only picked up one shade from this range. It is in the shade ‘Blazing Orange’. The colour is highly pigmented and would need 1-2 strokes for the perfect matte finish. You can also apply a single stroke, but to ensure more evenness in the application, I use two strokes.

Blazing Orange:
As described in the shade name, this is a very vibrant and poppy orangish red shade. It goes completely matte in one stroke. This colour is a perfect mix of red and orange undertones. I love this type of bright and poppy colour for summers. It instantly brightens up my nails. This colour is very versatile and would suit all Indian complexions well. One can also wear this colour as bridal nail paint. I love this playful orangish-red nail paint and I am really impressed with the finish.

Staying Power:
The staying power is about 5-7 days depending on how much work you do. If you are more into household chores, it will start chipping off from the edges after 3 days. Use of a topcoat is helpful in this case. Overall, the staying power is cool at this price point.
This nail paint is very easy to remove as well. Any normal remover would remove it completely and it does not leave behind any stain.

Overall:
I do not have much complains about this range. It performs really well as a matte nail colour. The staying power is also good. Just that, I feel Maybelline should have launched more colours in this range. If you are more into reds and oranges, this range is perfect for you.

Pros of Maybelline New York Color Show Bright Matte Nail Paints:

• Travel-friendly packaging
• Nice applicator
• Frosted matte finish body of the bottle
• Affordable
• Great for summer wear
• Bright and poppy reddish-orange colour
• Can be worn as a bridal colour too
• The color payoff is good
• Occupies the nails evenly.
• The nail paint glide on the nails smoothly
• The perfect matte finish which looks gorgeous
• Lightweight formula
• Nails do not get patchy
• Staying power is good
• Removal is very easy

Cons of Maybelline New York Color Show Bright Matte Nail Paints:

• Starts chipping off the edges after 3 days
• Colour variety is bad
• Shades mostly from red and orange family

IMBB Rating: 4.5/5
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Maybelline New York Color Show Bright Matte Nail Paints?
Yes, surely.

My Experience with Maybelline New York Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Lacquer:

Texture and Finish:
This range was launched by Maybelline long ago. It is another glitter range by Maybelline. The colours in this range are decent. It mostly contains micro-sized silver glitters and shimmers which renders a beautiful touch to the nails. The glitters are not chunky and the polish is quite gritty in nature. Texture wise, the nail paints have a medium-thick texture which glides on the nails easily without tugging. The colour occupies the nails perfectly and ensures a smooth and flawless finish.

All the colours in this range are sandy textured and apply like a breeze. The colour payoff is great and the nail paints are quite pigment packed. It gives a beautiful high-shine glitter finish to the nails. The formulation is really great and works decently as a glitter nail polish. However, I love the glitter finish of Party girl range more with respect to this. I use two coats of this nail polish for a perfect colour payoff. The colour dries down really fast and takes about 5 minutes to settle completely. I would not say it is quick drying nail paint.

Shades:
This range has a total of 7 shades and the colour variation is cool. I just picked one shade from this range recently. I wanted a blue-based purple, so I picked ‘Papparazzi Purple’. If you are looking for a red based Purple, you can try the shade ‘Matinee Mauve’. Now let me describe the shade.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish - Blushing Bubbly, Fireworks, Rock The Night, Blazing Orange, Paparazzi Purple Review5

Paparazzi Purple:
The shade ‘Papparazzi Purple’ is a gorgeous blue toned purple with silver glitters suspended on the base colour. When applied to the nails, it looks like textured glittery nail polish. The glitters do not diffuse with the base colour but remain suspended and give a grainy look. The colour looks very classy on the nails and will go mostly with western outfits. This will suit fair to medium skin tones more.

Once it sets, the glitters do not fall off. The nail polish appears super shimmery at the time of application, but as time passes the shimmeriness reduces and it looks more texturised. If you are not quite used to gritty nail paints, this might surprise you.

Staying Power:
This nail paint stays for about 7-10 days on my nails. It starts chipping off after 4-5 days from the edges and the glossy sheen fades away. With the help of a top coat, the sheen can be restored and staying period can be increased. Just like other glitter nail polishes, it is quite hard to remove this nail paint. Normal nail paint removers take more time and quantity to wipe this off completely.

Overall:
This is a decent purchase as a glitter nail paint. It looks beautiful, budget-friendly and it stays for long as well. But if you do not like texturised nail paints in the form of glitters, you can give this skip. In a nutshell, I am happy with the purchase.

Pros of Maybelline New York Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Lacquer:

• Travel-friendly packaging
• Nice applicator
• Affordable
• Beautiful blue-toned purple glitter nail polish with silver shimmers
• Great for evening wear and with western outfits
• Texture is gritty
• Consistency is medium-thick
• Dries off fast
• The color payoff is good
• Occupies the nails evenly.
• The nail paint glide on the nails smoothly
• Perfect glitter finish which looks gorgeous
• Lightweight formula
• Nails do not get patchy
• Staying power is good

Cons of Maybelline New York Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Lacquer:

• Starts chipping off the edges after 4-5 days
• Shimmer finish reduces after 4-5 days
• Texturised glitter finish which appears quite sandy
• It is hard to remove this nail paint

IMBB Rating: 4.3/5
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Maybelline New York Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Lacquer?
Yes, only if you love texturised glitter nail polish, then go for it.
