Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamel is a budget friendly and colorful range for your nails. The range is Formaldehyde, DBP and Toluene free. It’s been around for a long time. the range gets juicier every season. Recently Maybelline introduced Matte shades in the already existing colors. I shall talk about the matte range some other time. Today I am going to write about a quirky shade from the range – Ladies Night. It is a pretty bold shade for night outs & high time. I like to wear it for some extra oomph factor. Hope you too like it.
The range is pretty fabulous considering the shade variants & colors and not to forget the different textures available in the range. You can find nail polish, nail color, nail lacquer, mattes, shiny colors, glitter and what not. The glitter range did not really impress me with the pigmentation, but other variants are pretty good considering the price range.
Rs. 110 for 6ml. Buy here at discounted price.
Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamel comes packed in small cylindrical pots with black cap & applicator brush at the top. The packaging is quite prone to breakage if accidentally dropped on the floor. I already broke 2 shades from the range without even wearing them once on my nails. The applicator is thin but efficient, I like it since it makes it easy to apply the color on my not so wide nails.
Shade – Ladies Night 006
This is a beautiful electric blue shade. It is bright & bold. It is full of shine and looks very glamorous on my nails. The fabulous shade is perfect for night puts & parties.
Fragrance & Texture
The nail paint is very runny. It drips if taken in excess. I wipe of the extra paint against the mouth of the bottle. Fragrance in a nail paint can not be avoided. This too smells heavily of acetone, which stays on nails after application for about half an hour or so.
The pigmentation of the nail enamel is actually impressive. Even though it is runny but it is not thin in color. It gives nice opaque finish to the nail in the very first stroke. Make sure to let the color dry off before putting up another layer to avoid application.
The nail enamel gives nice shine to the nails with opaque color. The nails look really beautiful as well as glamorous at the same time. Shiny nails are definitely a must have for night outs.
If you do not do much household stuff, then the shade & shine will stay intact for about 4-5 days, as I have tested. But if you have to take care of home & other homely duties, of course you will notice loss of shine as well as color chipping off from the top of your nails in just 2-3 days. You should wear gloves while carrying out cleaning etc. to take care of your nails & hands in general.

- Not every shade from the range is that much pigmented. The peach shade I got with this Ladies Night, was very thin in consistency and the pigmentation was not that good. Also the glittery shades does not have much color to them. The color pay off is less while glitter is quite chunky.
Summary : 4.5/5
I absolutely like the range for the budget factor associated with this range. Shiny shades are worth trying from this range. Dark shades are nice in color pay off.
