Maybelline Color Show Nail Polishes Review

Hi everyone! Today I have for you my first beauty review. Maybelline's Color Show Collection has finally reached Chile and I couldn't help but pick up a few colors I had had my eye on for quite a while.

 

First up is Fierce N Tangy, a bright sunshine yellow. This was the first color I picked - it's just looks gorgeous! Sadly, on the nails it doesn't look as great. I have a lot of nail polish, and this was the first time I encountered such a weird formula. It was streaky, and it tended to 'group' and leave some parts of the nail uncovered in the first layer. It took me three coats to achieve an opaque look, but it still looks streaky on some nails. 





The other polish I got was Green With Envy. This one is definitely the best one of the two. It was nearly opaque in one coat, and not at all streaky! I ended up doing two coats to even out the color, but you could get away with just one if you were in a hurry. I'm in love with mint polishes at the moment, even thought it's fall here and technically mint is sort of a spring/summer color but I don't care! 

I won't comment on the wear of these polishes as my nails have always been really weak and polish doesn't last me a day without chipping, so I'm not the best person to review that.

Overall, I'm torn - Fierce N Tangy isn't the best polish I've encountered, while Green With Envy is one of the best pastel polishes I've had, so I guess it all depends on the individual color.

What do you think? Have you tried the Maybelline Color Show range?

Hola! Hoy día les traigo mi primera reseña de belleza. Por fin salió acá en Chile la colección de esmaltes Color Show de Maybelline, y no pude resistirme y compré unos de los colores a los que le había echado el ojo.

El primero se llama Fierce N Tangy, y es un brillante amarillo. Éste fue el primer color que escogí - es tan lindo! Lo malo es que en las uñas no se ve tan bien. Tengo muchos esmaltes, y esta fue la primera vez que me encuentro con una formula tan rara. Se notaban demasiado las rayas y tenía la tendencia a 'agruparse' y dejar círculos de uña sin pintar en la primera capa. Me tomó tres capas lograr un acabado opaco, y en algunos igual se notaban las rayas.


El otro esmalte fue Green With Envy. Éste fue definitivamente el mejor de los dos. Estaba casi opaco con solo una capa, y no se notaban las rayas! Al final hice dos capas para que estuviera perfecto, pero si no tienes tiempo podría pasar desapercibido con solo una capa. Me encantan los esmaltes menta en este momento, aunque acá sea otoño y técnicamente el menta es un color de primavera/verano pero no me importa!

No voy a comentar en cuanto duran los esmaltes, porque mis uñas siempre han sido débiles y no aguantan un día sin que se me arruinen con cualquier esmalte. 

En total, Fierce N Tangy no ha sido uno de los mejores esmaltes que tengo, mientras que Green With Envy es uno de los mejores esmaltes pasteles que tengo, así que parece que todo depende del color individual. Cuando yo me los compré me costaron $1.990 pesos chilenos cada uno.

¿Qué piensan? ¿Han probado la colección Color Show de Maybelline?

 También se me olvidaba decir que me hice un Instagram! Mi usuario es TheTotalOpposite por si quieren seguirme :)

  8. I love both of these, especially the yellow although it's a shame it's such a rubbish formula to work with!
