First apply a clear base coat to prevent your nails from yellowing and to help your nail color last longer. With one sweep, paint the first line of nail polish up the center of your nail starting from the base to the tip. For the cleanest look, be sure to leave a small space at the base of the nail. Then apply nail color to the rest of the nail.

My Experience With Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Bold Gold 008:

Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquers come in a cylindrical bottle with a black screw on cap. The shade name and number is embossed on to the lid. It's a sleek and sturdy bottle. The brush is pretty nice as well.
The shade Bold Gold is a dull gold shade, very contrary to its name. I still like it though. It looks really good with ethnic wear. This shade would look awesome with a little black dress. It is also an ideal shade for events/ parties/weddings.
One swipe is all you need to get an opaque coverage of this shade on your nails. It dries up pretty fast. The only problem I faced with this shade is that, the application was kind of streaky. I am assuming that is because of slightly texture of the nail color. It stayed on my nails for a good 4–5 days without any chipping.

Pros Of Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Bold Gold 008:
  • Lovely dull gold shade
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Affordable
  • Dries pretty fast
  • Stayed on my nails for 4-5 days without any chipping
  • Gives opaque coverage in just one coat

Cons Of Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Bold Gold 008:
  • It looks little streaky after application.

Final Note:

I really love this dull gold shade. The only con is that, it looks a little streaky after applying the nail polish. If you can work with this con, go ahead and pick this shade. It's the most affordable gold nail polish available in the market.
