My Experience With Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Midnight Taupe:

Packaging: The decent packaging is the one where there is no scope for complaints at all. This nail color packaging is in a transparent cylindrical glass bottle with the shade name and number embossed on top. You can easily spot the lacquer even if you are having more than 5-6 shades in your stash.
Shade: The color is dark grayish taupe with purple undertones. As I mentioned earlier, this classy shade is perfect for the winters and would suit all the skin tones. The shade is very much wearable for office as well.
Applicator Brush: The bristles are soft and smooth. They do not give any bubbles or streakiness and you don't have to worry about the neatness while applying the varnish.

Texture & Pigmentation: The varnish has the high glossy effect and is completely creamy. If a good top coat is applied, it gives the effect of a gel polish. The first coat is quite sheer and it is advisable to use two coats to get a clean opaque coat of the lacquer. Overall, it gives a decent pigmentation for its price tag.
Staying Power: It stayed on my nails for a good whole week and there was hardly any chipping or breaking of nail paint.
Coming to the dupes, here are some that I have found out. They are China Glaze Foie Gras, Essie smokin' hot, OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys and Chanel paradoxal.
I am totally in awe of this shade. From the color to the texture to the pigmentation, no where this nail polish has disappointed me. I must mention that the price tag is a surprise as well.

Pros Of Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Midnight Taupe:
  • Nice travel-friendly and easy packaging.
  • A lovely dark grayish taupe with a strong purple undertone.
  • Perfect color for fall and would suit all Indian skin tones.
  • Creamy and glossy finish.
  • With just two coats, the color comes out opaque.
  • A very good applicator brush
  • Amazing staying power.

Cons Of Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Midnight Taupe:

Final Note:

Fall colors are always my favorites over spring and summer ones. Moreover, this color is so uncommon and beautiful that you won't find a dupe in every brand. The dupes I have found are only available with the brands that we hardly get in India. Therefore, it is a golden opportunity to grab this piece of beauty for the lowest possible price tag. In fact, I have brought another bottle in case I finish with this one.
