Review, Swatches: Maybelline Color Show Party Girl Nail Polish, Tequila Sunrise

Hey beautiful!

Maybelline India launched their Party Girl Collection some time back and I had picked up 4 shades from this range. The packaging and shades were just so stunning that I was literally drawn to these. The shade that I am reviewing from this range today is called Tequila Sunrise. So let’s get started and jump right into the review. Stay tuned…

What The Brand Claims: The stunning glitter nail paints are the best accessory you can flaunt this season. These runway inspired range of colors help you stand out and make a style statement. The bold, glittery and glossy texture nail paints look opaque in a single coat and makes an instant hit.

How To Apply:

Step 1: Apply a clear base coat to help prevent your nails from yellowing and to extend the life of your nail polish color.
Step 2: Brush one coat of lacquer from the center of your nail starting from the base to the tip.

Packaging: The nail paint comes in a cute little bottle with the words ‘Party Girl’ mentioned in holo. It states all the important information like date of manufacturing, MRP and shelf-life clearly. The shade name as well as the shade number are mentioned at the top of the bottle. The brush is also easy to use and smoothly covers the nail area. All in all, the packaging is beautiful, sturdy as well as travel friendly.

Shade: First of all, let us take a moment to appreciate this color! It is just so surreal that words fall short to describe it. I am so besottedly in love with this shade and trust me, the pictures do not do complete justice to this beauty. It looks just spectacular in person! I have tried my best to depict the color as closely as possible under different lightings and included a GIF snippet as well. The following brush shot depicts the shade really closely.

Maybelline has clearly put in a lot of thought in naming the shades which I absolutely love. This shade instantly reminds me of a sunset. So serene and so beautiful! 😊

Tequila Sunrise is a stunning coral-pinkish shade with strong hints of gold. It has an iridescent finish and the gold shines beautifully as soon as the light hits. It also contains specks of glitter that are not at all harsh or gritty. Aptly named, this indeed is like ‘party on the nails’.

My Experience With The Product: Maybelline Party Girl Nail Polish in the shade Tequila Sunrise has a medium consistency because of the presence of glitter particles. Nonetheless, it is easy to work with and beautifully spreads on the nails. It applies smoothly and the glitter does not feel chunky or harsh on the nails. It dries down quickly and settles into a gorgeous shiny finish. The pigmentation of this shade is pretty decent, but you do need 2-3 swipes for the color to show up completely. Talking about the lasting power, I am really impressed with this one! The color easily stays put for a minimum of 5 days, which is great. Of course, if you are into kitchen chores, then it does start chipping off from the tips and slightly lose its shine, but that too only after 2-3 days. Otherwise, the color as well as the shine; both remain intact.

Since this nail paint contains glitter particles, removal is definitely a task and it can get slightly messy too! Even though the color comes off easily, but the glitter particles take some time and effort to be removed completely. You do need to go over at least twice with a good polish remover to properly get rid of the glitter. The product can be easily found online as well as at Maybelline counters.
