What The Brand ClaimsWith trendy, super stylish shades, these nail colors add oodles of attitude to your overall look. Presenting 40 attractive shades, the Maybelline Color Show Range lets you mix, match and experiment with color!

Packaging: Like most Maybelline nail polishes, this one too comes in a cute little glass bottle with a black cap. It contains 6 ml of product and all important information such date of manufacturing, shelf-life, net volume as well as MRP are clearly mentioned. However, there is no ingredient list present!

The name of the shade along with the shade number is mentioned at the top of the cap of the bottle. The brush is also easy to use and picks up the right amount of product. It covers the nail area properly and does not feel harsh at all.

Shade: ‘Bold Gold’ is a true gold color with a metallic finish. This is a great shade for everyday wear as well as festive season. It looks classy and elegant and not at all OTT.

My Experience With The Product: Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in the shade Bold Gold has just the right consistency! It is neither too runny nor too thick! It applies smoothly and dries down quickly too. It sets into a beautiful metallic finish that looks lovely on the nails. The pigmentation of this shade is excellent and delivers a rich color payoff in just 1 swipe. However, out of habit, I always apply 2 coats for the color to show up properly.

Coming to the wear-time, it stays on for a good 4-5 days on the nails. However, like most nail paints, it starts chipping off from the tips in a day or two if you are into daily household chores. In addition, the removal of this nail color is also quick and fuss-free. It easily comes off in a single go with a good polish remover and does not leave any stains behind. The product is priced at Rs 110 and can be easily found online as well as at Maybelline counters.
