Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Polishes 212 Hooked-On-Pink, 214 Orange Fix and 301 Tenacious Teal

Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Polishes (INR 75 for 6 ml

212 Hooked-on-Pink is a bold and Bright, almost bordering Neon Pink with a creamy shine. The nail Polish applied opaque after 2 coats and takes a while to completely dry.. There is no streakiness and the formula applies uniformly. This particular nail polish chipped on the 2nd day itself.. The consistency is medium thick. The second coat brings out the best of the color. The finish is shiny but not really glossy.

214 Orange Fix is a pretty Orange with a hint of coral, and is absolutely a stunning color for summers. It screams "Beach Holiday" for me. The consistency of this one is on the runnier side and not being careful with application can lead to pooling on the sides. The color needs to be built up in three coats and even then there is slight translucency in the formula. The texture is unlike my other Color Show Polishes. It feels a little liquidy gel like and performed the best out of my all Color Show polishes staying for as long as upto 4 days without chipping. The shine is fantastic and quite glossy. It's my favorite!!

301 Tenacious Teal is well, not really a Teal if you ask me. It is more of a Green ,maybe a little darker version of Lotus Herbals Go Grapes that I reviewed HERE, but nonetheless, a fabulous Color for nails. It goes opaque in 2 coats.The color kind of darkens and deepens after a day of wear, and loses it's shine easily too. It stays for almost three days with a little chip. 

My biggest concern about the Color Show nail Polishes is that the quality varies across shades.. The brushes in these three polishes are thin,and not that wide. The polish bottles are small and look cute. But overall, I love how these perform, with a exception of a few colors here and there, most of them applied smoothly and gave rich ,saturated color in 2 coats.
