Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish Review – Nude Skin, Lavender Lies, Red carpet

Nail paints are every girl’s love. I rarely come through girls who don’t like nail paints. But yes, I know some GFs of mine who don’t like the applying nail paints (Even I used to be one of them). In my hostel days I never used to apply on my own and on days I applied it would be so untidy that my friends used to comment “Have you painted your nails like walls”?

But thanks to the drugstore brands that we Indians are also getting some awesome nail paints that we don’t need to anymore look into foreign brands and say aww that’s a hard-to-find shade…

Nude Skin – I haven’t come through any nude better than this. It just feels like your nails but with a more refined look. Nude skin is a stable earth-toned shade which has a mauve finish to it. The nail paint does not seem to contain shimmer in it but still, the complete look is so polished. It is one shade that can be termed as universal. It will look flattering on all skin-tones and Indian skin tones will rock in this shade.

Lavender Lies – Such a pretty lavender color. The color looks great on nails. It is a beautiful color which is perfect for everyday usage. The color looks very understated yet classy on nails. This is a perfect office wear color.

Red Carpet – Coming to the star color, this is the glitter shade. And the shade looks gorgeous on nails. This is the perfect party nail color which is an instant mood lifter. Coming to the shade, it is a bright red color with glitter finish which is perfect to brighten up your hands.


Both the matte and glitter colors are superbly pigmented. With just one swipe, you will get a smooth opaque color. You can obviously go for multiple swipes to darken the color. But the pigmentation of these colors is truly bang on!


Mostly, the brushes of these nail polishes are also great. First application and you will get a smooth opaque finish. But in 2 coats you will get the real color. It dries super quickly. And even a novice like me can get a smooth coat then I think anybody can get. Also, it stays in place for a good 4-5 days.


  1. Affordable
  2. Easily available
  3. Flattering color
  4. Gives smooth opaque finish
  5. Dries super quick
  6. Remains in place for 4-5 days.


  1. None for me
