My Views:

So, I couldn’t stop myself after trying 2 of Maybelline Colorshow Nail Polishes (Orange Fix and Wine & Dine), these are really addictive! During my last trip to the mall, I couldn’t resist  picking up 2 more nail polishes from Color Show Range – Velvet Wine & Tenacious Teal.

Velvet Wine is a gorgeous sorbet pink color, more like “rani pink”. It has pink & silver shimmer  which makes the finish somewhat gritty. It applies smoothly & the first coat goes somewhat sheer but with the second coat it goes completely opaque. The formula was a little runny but easily manageable. I don’t know how I missed picking up this beautiful pink last time but I am glad I have it now.

Tenacious Teal is another different & nice shade from the collection, it a jade teal/green color. I usually do not like to wear greens on my nails but Tenacious Teal is an exception, love its creamy & glossy finish. This one too had a slightly running formula but easily manageable. And again, with two coats I got opaque coverage.

I got a weartime of about 4 days with both the colors, after that it started wearing off the tips. I think being budget nail polishes 4 days of wear time is good. The glossiness maintained throughout the weartime and it  looked creamy throughout. Drying time between 2 coats wasn’t long either. The quantity is definitely less compared to other nail polishes from brands.

Recommendation: Velvet Wine is a pretty “rani pink” shade & Tenacious Teal is a unique jade green in my collection. Formula is great & these nail polishes dry real quick too.
