This post will review some beautiful shades of Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Paints that were left out from my last post. As you all will agree, a lady cannot have enough nail paints to paint her colour according to her moods. And when it is Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Paints with some vibrant shades, even 40 shades are not enough.
So let’s continue with our appraisal of the beautiful nail paints Maybelline New York has given us. I will keep the description of texture, pigmentation and staying power the same, as all the shades that I am reviewing do not vary in these aspects.
Maybelline Claims: Stay right on trend from your tips to your toes with new Maybelline Color Show. Our gel based formula with color popping pigments, comes in 40 bold, super stylish shades that look great on nails. So go on, mix, match and make the most of color.
Price: 75 INR for 6 ml.
Shelf Life: 36 months.
Directions For Use: To begin with apply a clear base coat, to prevent your nails from yellowing. It also helps your nail colour 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 colour to the rest of the nail.
Packaging: The nail paints come in cute, cylindrical glass bottles with black cap. The colour of the shade pops out of the glass bottle. The name and number of the shade is written on the top the cap.
Applicator: The brush/applicator is dense and easy to use, depositing just the right quantity of product on the nails. It does not leave brush marks on the nails like some nail paint brushes do.
My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Nail Paints:
Texture: The texture of these nail paints is creamy, neither too runny nor too thick, just the right texture for beautiful non-streaky application.
Pigmentation: Despite the price, the pigmentation is also great. One coat gives opaque coverage but two coats bring out the true colour. You do not need to resort to a third coat at all.
Staying Power: The lasting power of these nail paints is quite decent. Like any other nail paints, these last for about 5-6 days before fading begins. Chipping can be seen after 3-4 days. I generally change my nail paint colour every week so I cannot really comment on how long these take to completely disappear from the nails.
Shades I Am Going to Review:
Tangerine Treat-406: Tangerine..I love this name. This word brings to mind such lively things. The shade Tangerine Treat is, well a true tangerine or bright papaya colour. Instantly brightens your nails and day. 🙂
Lavender Lies-217: Well, I love the name Lavender too ( What is it with colours and their English names). But seriously this colour is a knock-out especially for purple lovers like me. This is a dark purple shade which will complement all skin tones.
Porcelian Party-102: Nice name again..This shade is pure, semi-matte white. I had been searching for a pure white nail paint during my nail-art stage (Yes, I passed that stage when I used to create nail art every 3-4 days 😀 ). I bought some horrible whites during my search, some whitish cream, some creamish white, some with a shine..aargh. And then Maybelline handed this over to me to end my search. So yes, your search for an affordable pure white colour could end with this beauty.
Mint Mojito-404: This is a beautiful minty green shade. But this particular colour stained my nails without a base coat. 🙁
Pros of Maybelline Color Show Nail Paints:
- Dries up quickly.
- Beautiful, wearable shades.
- Opaque in two coats.
- Brush is dense and easy to apply.
- Texture is neither too runny nor too dense.
- Lasts for a good 6-7 days before fading.

Con Of Maybelline Color Show Nail Paints:
Like I said in my previous post, a few colors can stain nails when applied without a base coat.
IMBB rating: 5/5.
