No matter how much freedom we get during these college years, the reminiscences from school are something else. We cherish them as long as we live. The other day I went out with my school friends for Paulite Fest in my ex-school which was like a dream world to me. I wore a floral maxi dress paired with my latest possession of Maybelline nail color. This shade is called Lavender Lies and I am sure all of you have already guessed why I chose this color. Not only the name but the shade has a floral touch to it and so I found it to be the right pick. Do you want to find out why I got so many compliments on wearing this color?

My Experience With Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Lavender Lies 217:

Packaging: The super adorable nail lacquer from Maybelline comes in a cylindrical glass bottle with a screw plastic cap that has an applicator brush attached to it. The shade name and number in engraved on the top of the black cap and it is very easy to spot the bottle from array of nail varnishes kept together. The little bottle is very travel-friendly and easy to carry around.
Shade: The name of the shade is absolutely floral i.e. Lavender lies and the color matches a lot with the name. The shade is a deep lavender or deep orchid purple with no shimmer at all. It is a very bright, though not loud shade and brightens up your hands instantly. In fact, the color looks lovely with white and floral outfits and would suit every skin tone.
Texture: The texture is absolutely creamy and has a nice sheen to it. Do not expect a gel like finish though. The consistency of the nail varnish is neither too runny nor too thick. It has the proper consistency of a varnish.

Applicator Brush: A very good applicator is provided. The brush is nice and the bristles are soft enough to give a neat and tidy finish on your nails. It doesn't form any streaks or bumps while applying the color.
Pigmentation: Color show nails paint vary a lot on the pigmentation. In this particular shade, it has decent pigmentation and with just two clean and fuller strokes you can achieve a neat opaque lacquer on your nails.
Staying Power: The staying power is slightly low as compared to the other nail varnishes of this range. It stays on my nails for 2-3 days and then the corner starts chipping slightly. But I believe that the staying power can be improved with a good top coat.

Final Note:

Lavender Lies shade is very girly and beautiful. I could hardly find a closest dupe to such a beautiful color which comes with a price tag of less than 100 INR. This color is surely an absolutely steal for every girl who loves to add a floral touch to her nails.
