My Experience with Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour Surreal, Bubble Gum, Rouge Passion:
Packaging: The bottles looked beautiful on the Maybelline counter and trust me I was drooling over them. They come in glass bottles which look very classy with see-through packaging. It becomes really easy to spot the colours. They have a wide variety of shades to choose from, ranging from sober shades to bright ones and then bold and super dark ones. I picked some bright and very common colors to try and see if they worked different than the regular ones. I overall loved the packaging because they are very handy. The bottles are sturdy and won’t break even if dropped.
• Rouge Passion-This is certainly the most beautiful red that I have used till date. I wouldn’t mind calling it the perfect red because it is bold, bright, sexy and glamorous. The moment I paint my nails, the bright red shade adds life to my nails. This is a very eye candy colour which everyone is sure to notice. It instantly makes my hands look fresher and brighter. This colour is great for bridal wear too. A bride would look perfect in it! This is an all-rounder shade which you can wear for any occasion or on any outfit too.
• Surreal-This is one of the most unique shades that I have tried! Surreal is a beautiful periwinkle blue or a pretty lavender-blue shade. It is a very crisp and a refreshing colour. Pair it with a boring outfit and it does the trick of taking away all the attention. This is a very different shade to try out. Earlier I was a bit hesitant to pick this up but it turned out to be really beautiful. This shade cannot be easily duped, so it is a fun shade to try out.
• Bubble Gum: How can I not pick a pink? It is a bright bold pink which adds a lot of feminism to the nails. It looks very cute and girly and this is my on-the-go shade. It is an eye candy shade and one of the best pinks that I have used. I pair it with my Infinitely Fuchsia lipstick from Maybelline and they both steal the show. It gives me some cute Barbie nails which I love flaunting every now and then. It adds a lot of hotness to my nails.
Texture, consistency and pigmentation: The pigmentation is great. I need 2 full coats to make it look opaque and bright. But I don’t mind applying 2 coats since they dry pretty quickly. The texture is very shiny and glossy. It gives you the look of gel nails, so am happy that it does what it claims. The consistency is thick but it is very smooth on the nails but you need to be careful and not keep the cap open for long while application. Also, we need to keep the fan off while applying these; else they might dry up completely.
Staying power: The nail paint actually stayed for 7-8 days. The glossy sheen was reduced but my nail paint was there, colourful and bright. It might peel a little from the cuticles area if your nail grows super fast like mine. Now if you are into vigorous washing of clothes and dishes every-day and you apply only 1 coat, then it will chip off from places because that happened with my mom when maid was on leave. And for that, make sure you apply 2 coats and a top coat. It chips a little from the ends if there is not much activity but just a little which will be seen only when observed closely.
Overall great ones if you can spend that much on a nail paint.
