Last week saw the launch of the Maybelline’s new Color Show Glitter Mania polishes in eight dazzling, glittering colours which are already the talk of the blogsphere. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have already caught a glimpse of these beauties and seen the little slideshow I made on it. If you haven’t seen it, here it is…
The Color Show Glitter Mania polishes come with a “3D” technology, are very shimmery glittery and give your nails an amazing textured finish like the liquid sand finish.
All the bloggers at the event were given a personalised gold clutch with all eight shades of the polish in it. The colours range from light to dark and there’s sure to be at least one that will capture your heart. The wear time on these polishes is also wonderful. I have the Matinee Mauve on my nails since three days and there’s just very slight tip wear. As you know by now, practically no polish lasts for more than two days on my nails and this one is almost intact. You can only notice the tip wear if you look at my nails closely.
Here are swatches of all the shades (my clutch had 7 shades in them, the blue was missing. I didn’t bother to buy it because blue polish isn’t my thing anyway along with black, green and yellow). In all the pictures, I’m wearing two coats of each polish without any top coat.
Silver shimmer and silver glitter make this one true to it’s name. It really is dazzling and is one of my favourites.
All That Glitters
All that glitters is not gold….it could also be this beautiful, soft gold polish that would appeal to the inner magpie in all of us. I’m so glad it is not a bright, in-your-face gold but a softer, dull colour because with the glitter, it looks just fab. I LOVE this shade! The glitter particles in this one look dull gold from certain angles and silver from others. Perfect for weddings, this one shade would see you through all the pre-wedding functions to the wedding and reception without a change of polish.
Just look at this beauty! It is a baby pink polish with tons of silver glitter. I think I need to stop mentioning that this is a favourite since I’m probably going to be saying that for all of these colours.
This is the colour that’s been on my nails since the last three days. I had swatched this one the last and let it remain and then applied it on my toe nails too. Isn’t it lovely? It’s a pink-y mauve with mauve as well as silver glitters. You need to see these in bright sunlight to actually appreciate their beauty.
I should have zoomed in a bit more in this pic. Anyway, this one is a blue-based purple with purple and silver shimmers.
All you brides out there…go and get this shade because the combination of red and gold glitters in this polish proclaim “Indian Shaadi” like no other. It would look lovely on mehndi-d hands and anyway, why shouldn’t the nails have their share of bling?
My least favourite among all these shades but that’s simply because I’m not a big fan of black polishes. There’s loads of silver glitter in a black base and it’s the perfect shade if you want the “Rocker Chic” look. This is the polish I wore in my L’Oreal L’Or Lumiere Red Carpet Look.
