Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Polish in Matinee Mauve || Review and Swatches

Hi All!!

I am very thrilled to review a beautiful glitter nail polish for you today. The reason I am thrilled is because I have seen so many sand textured nail polishes in USA but there was none in India.  But Maybelline came to rescue us Indian girls. Introducing Maybelline's Glitter Mania Nail polishes which was launched recently in India for just Rs 125. It's is a jaw dropping price for such an amazing product. This product reminds me of Loreal's Color Riche Gold Dust Nail Polish which is priced at around $6.99 in USA. So Glitter Mania Polishes at just Rs. 125 is definitely worth grabbing.

I think:

I love Maybelline's Color Show Polishes as its formula is amazing. But Glitter Mania polishes have a different formula and texture. They contain two different sizes of glitter particles. Majority of the particles are fine, but some particles are bigger, circular and silver. The mixture of textures make it look interesting and fun. The polishes mimic sand texture but does not give the true sand texture as Formula X for Sephora Lusture in Super Charged (reviewed HERE).

I love the name Matinee Mauve (color number 605) which is absolutely appropriate for this color. In the bottle, the polish does not look very enticing to be honest but the color comes out to be a lot prettier on the nails than in the bottle. The bigger glitter particles have a weird tendency to gather around the inner surface of the bottle, making it look prominently silver than mauve. But on nails the mauve colors shows off really well. The glitter does not wear off on rubbing or even scratching. The formula though not completely opaque in one coat, looks quiet nice with the light coming through it. With single coat the color looks like beautiful baby pink color. With second coat it takes up the true mauve color. It is build-able to good coverage even with the first coat but it is completely opaque with two coats. The formula dries up quiet quickly. It does not streak and applies beautifully and evenly right from the first coat. The polish is super long stay as it does not start to chip till 4-5 days. See the picture below to know how little it chipped by the 7th day of wear.

On the seventh day

I love that it can be worn different ways. You can wear it shear to achieve a beautiful baby pink color. You can pair up any other color as a base color for an added effect. I wish they come out with more colors in this range.

Pros: 
  • Applies beautifully
  • Does not streak
  • Can be worn sheer or opaque
  • Opaque in 2 coats
  • Quick drying
  • Super long stay (does not chip for 4-5 days)
  • Smudge and crease resistant
  • Affordable
Cons:
  • Tough to take off
  • Glitter separates in the bottle

Final Verdict: 4.7/5
