Maybelline's Color Show Nail Lacquer

Hello Beauties! I have been needing a nice classic red for a while now. I surprisingly only have had two reds in my collection and neither fit the bill. 

So, while at the grocery, I remember Maybelline's Color Show, and quickly went to check them out. What variety of colors! But I had to stay focused on the task at hand...RED.  

Paint the Town! 

It is a perfect classic red. Not to dark or to light.
My first impression upon opening the bottle was it appeared to be slightly thin, which worried me. But once I applied the first coat, I was pleased to see that it still covered very nicely. And if in a hurry, could easily get away with the one coat.

Here I applied two coats, and on the ring finger one coat for comparison of coverage.
It has a nice shine finish.  Above photo has no top coat. 

Overall, I am pleased with this polish.

  • Offers good coverage.
  • Drys pretty quick.
  • At around $3, it is affordable.
  • They offer a huge range of colors.

I will give an update after a couple of days to let you all know how it wears, if it peels or chips.

Have any of you used this polish? If so, what colors and what do you think of them?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
