Photo Diary With Maybelline Color Show Nail Polishes ~ Day 10-06

Hello, Color Show! These were launched not so long ago in India, and everybody is going ga-ga over them, because:
  • Their price tag is as rare as a celebrity without botox. At Rs.75 | $1 | £0.73 a bottle, I think they are flying off the shelves.
  • They're available in 40 shades. I saw some ladies buying ALL 40 shades at once! I'm guessing they thought: 'When in doubt, buy both all.'
  • Price & variety aside, we can agree it all comes down to quality. For me personally, these feel no different from the ones that cost more. They are creamy & glossy, and can look opaque with just 1 thick coat. All swatches here are 2 coats. Drying time is minimal too. I'm sure of this because I a-l-w-a-y-s see small scratches on my nail polish (usually from my long hair, I don't know how), but I did not see any on these, surprisingly. 
  • They don't chip for 5-6 days on my left hand nails. Right hand nails, well, the same with every other nail polish, maybe 3 days tops. I think the main culprit is the steam from cooking.

I've got 10 shades with me, but to avoid crowding one blog post & skimping on photos, I thought it's better to split the post up into 2 parts. I'm putting up Photo Diary Day 10-06 now, and will be posting Day 05-01 shortly.
From front to back (R-L): Lavender Lies, Blackcurrant Pop, Coral Craze, Bold Gold Fantasea Green, Shocking Seas, Pink Voltage. They will also appear in the same order below.
Day 10:  Lavender Lies #217 & Blackcurrant Pop #402
These are like sisters, so I had to wear them together. Lavender Lies is a lavender color (duh!), while Blackcurrant Pop is lighter and looks like a faded version of Lavender Lies. Two shades that could create a perfect ombre effect when sponged over one another. Don't you love the name Lavender Lies? {"Lavender lies! Not white, lavender lies!", Lily yelled at Rose angrily.}


DAY 09 : Coral Craze #211 & Bold Gold #008
My TOP 2 must-have shades from the Color Show Collection. The bow is a Maybelline blue bow nail sticker - I painted it with Bold Gold, and then added the middle loop with Coral Craze.
Maybelline Nail Art Stickers ~ Bows, Moustaches, Neck Ties & Hats. CUTE!


 DAY 08 : Fantasea Green #302

This is a very interesting color, and not one I've painted my nails with before. Very grunge....but dainty butterflies will want to fly to it anyways.....






Day 07: Shocking Seas #303
One of my favorite shades from this range! Definitely one of the prettiest blue nail polishes I've ever worn. It looks so chic next to denim and pink.


DAY 06 : Pink Voltage #010
An almost magenta pink with a hint of duochrome effect. I think this would go with a lot of rani pink Indian wear, like lehengas & saris. *I'm wearing faux fur, by the way.
A few days back, I asked you to guess the name of this pink nail polish here. The WINNERS are Poorna Banerjee, Nidhi, Richa, Lakshmipriya, Geetz, Pavithra B, Shrutika, Mothini Karthikeyan, Snehal Nandagawli.

Well done, ladies! Remember to make a special wish this Christmas ;)
Just some fun pics with my Style Your Own Necklace
Price of Color Show Nail Polishes: Rs.75 for 6ml. The bottles are small and super cute!

That's the 1st batch. I hope you liked the photos. Now you can see why I had to split it into 2 parts. Stay tuned for Photo Diary Day 05-01. UPDATE: See Day 05-01 HERE

A big THANK YOU to the Maybelline India team for generously sending me all these nail polishes to try out.

  20. One of the main reasons I love reading your blog is because of the photos you take. The attention to detail, the accessorising, and background.. they just fit so well! My favourite picture has got to be the one with Fantasea Green- where you grab the fur. It's ethereal. :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
