We all are aware of the Color Show range and the array of colors they provide us. Every time I visit Maybelline counter, they have this cute display of the nail lacquers and I feel like buying another one. I just don't get enough of it. Sometimes I buy few colors which I never wear at all but the cute bottles are enough to distract me. Reds, corals and other conventional colors are common in every brand but some colors are totally exceptional and you feel like storing them in your stash. One such color is the buried treasure. Let's find out my take on this product.

My Experience With Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Buried Treasure 221:

Packaging: The nail polish comes in a cylindrical transparent glass bottle with a black screw cap that has the applicator brush attached. These nail paints are very much travel-friendly and fuss free.
Shade: This is one of the rarest and uncommon shades I have ever seen. It is little tricky to describe the color. The shade is a dirt greyish color with strongly visible golden undertones. The color would suit the fair to wheatish skin tones beautifully and a great option for workplace.
Applicator Brush: The applicator brush is absolutely fuss free, streak free and easy to apply the lacquer. It gives a wonderful bubble-free coating no matter how carelessly you apply the color.

Consistency & Texture: It has the right creamy consistency which is neither too runny nor too thick as a varnish. The nail lacquer has a glossy finish with visible golden micro-shimmers. It looks even more beautiful under the sunlight where the golden shimmer literally shines.
Pigmentation: It has a good pigmentation where the desired color can be achieved with single coat while the precise and neat application can be achieved with double coats. Personally, I prefer wearing 2 coats no matter how good the pigmentation is.
Staying Power: The nail color stayed on my nails for 5 days without chipping. With the top coat, it stays a little extra which may vary due to the top coat. Overall, I have no complains about its staying power.
This particular nail lacquer stands out on its own and is one of the exceptional shades I own. On searching the net, I couldn't find out even a closet dupe of this color. Therefore, if you loved this color, it is a must have item for you given the fact that it costs only 75 INR.

Final Note:

If not for anything else, I would say buy the color for the uncommon shade. It is true that Color Show range is a standout for its quality and the nominal price they charge but the shades provided are also phenomenal. It is worth having more than just one or two shades.
