Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish, Pinkalicious: Review, Swatches

Hello ladies!

I am back today with another nail paint review post and it’s from the beloved brand Maybelline. This particular shade is called ‘Pinkalicious’ and forms a part of the Color Show range. So let’s begin and get into the detailed review as well as nail swatches. Stay tuned…

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 is clearly mentioned.

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: Pinkalicious is a pale pink color with a pearly effect. It sets into a shiny finish and looks beautiful on the nails.

My Thoughts On The Product: Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in the shade Pinkalicious has just the right consistency! It is neither too runny nor too thick! The nail color applies smoothly on the nails and dries down quickly too. This shade is decently pigmented, however being a lighter color, it needs 2-3 swipes to completely go opaque.

Like most nail polishes, it might start chipping off from the tips in a day or two, if you are into kitchen chores. Otherwise, it stays on for a good 4-5 days. This is a great shade for everyday wear and looks elegant too! If you are into nude nail paints, then I am sure you will love it!

Along with this, the removal of this nail color is also quick and fuss-free. It easily comes off in a single go with a good nail polish remover and does not leave any stains behind. The product retails for Rs 110 for 6 ml and can be easily found online as well as at Maybelline counters.
