Hello everyone! I got busy with some personal work but believe me it is very hard to stay away from this amazing place and all you amazing people. So I am back today with the review of Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer. Maybelline is one of the most affordable brand in India with some good quality makeup products. After their Colorama range of nail paints, Color Show has been around for a while. I always wanted to try them but never got a chance because I don't have a Maybelline counter near my place. But on my recent trip to a local store I saw these cuties. They were not having the entire range but whatever was available there, I could not miss having at least one of them. So I got myself two colors of which I am reviewing Tenacious Teal today.

75 INR for 6 ml

Shelf Life:

Directions For Use:

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 Tenacious Teal:

I have never seen such a cute packaging for a nail polish till date. I literally wanted to have all of them as they looked super cute. The nail paint comes in a cute little cylindrical glass bottle with a black screw cap. The shade name and number is printed on top of the cap. The bristles are quite dense and allow ease of application. I am quite disappointed with the formula of these nail paints. I expected it to go opaque in a single coat but they are watery and sheer in single coat. They don't deliver real good pigmentation. In this aspect Elle18 Color Pops deliver better result at a lesser price. You definitely need to have 2-3 coats of this nail color for the desired opaqueness and glossiness. The drying time is quick. The color Tenacious Teal is a fabulous jade green color. It has more of a dusty green hint rather than a perfectly teal color. I got a wear time of 7-8 days while doing some regular household chores after which the color started to fade a little. I think it is a perfect shade for summers as this is the right time to go bold and bright with your nails. Overall, this is a lovely green color which looks elegant and does not look over the top. Leaving aside its runny formula these nail paints are real cuties to have.

Pros Of Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Tenacious Teal:
  • Beautiful jade green color
  • Dries real quick
  • Affordably priced
  • Awesome cute packaging
  • The boldly written shade name on the cap makes it easier to locate
  • Good wear time of about 7 days without any chipping

Cons Of Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Tenacious Teal:
  • I expected the texture to be creamy but it is runny
  • Need 2-3 coats to get the desired pigmentation
  • The bold cap makes it a little difficult to hold it

Final Note:

These nail colors are a real steal at just 75 bucks. They have an awesome range of shades to try. The only negative point is its runny formula. Tenacious Teal is a beautiful dusty jade green color which is worth a try and perfect for summers. I have done a nail art on my pinky finger using this color which I will be posting soon as a tutorial.
