Maybelline Colorama Nail Color - Shade Sexy and Coral Chic Review

I am digging the hot pink / magenta pink shades these days. Recently, I bought 3 lipsticks that are almost in the same shade range of bright pink :O and it was completely unintentional. So it is obvious that I wanted a similar shade for my nails also. Now, Coral being another 'in' shade, I got to have one of those too. So got these two beauties from Maybelline Colorama range, in one of my recent hauls, in the shades Sexy and Coral Chic.


PRICE:  Rs.100

QUANTITY: 8 ml

SWATCH: 
SEXY

CORAL CHIC
 

MY EXPERIENCE: Let me start with the 'Sexy' one, which is an eye popping candy pink / hot pink shade and I just love it. The texture for 'cremoso' variant is creamy pastel like, as the name suggests. 1-2 coats gives opaque coverage.  
Coral Chic, is a pretty coral / orange shade with some pinkish hue , and some golden micro glitters, that are not discernible much to the eyes, but anyhow beautifies the shade further. The texture / consistency of this variant is thin and it requires 2-3 coats for full coverage.



Both the polishes, came with good brushes that made application easy. The staying power is 2-4 days with slight chipping on the tips, depending upon how much wear and tear your nails face. The bottle lists the complete ingredients, which is a first I have seen with any nail polish (sorry couldn't picture it as it was written in micro size fonts :P)! Only thing that bothered me is that, within 2 weeks of opening it, the oil has started imparting from the nail polishes (as occurs with some old polishes) though the expiry dates of the nail polishes are in 2013 / 2014 :-/.

WHAT I LIKED:
  • Both the shades are of good consistency and applies smoothly.
  • The brush is great and doesn't give any streaks.
  • Dries up completely within 8-10 minutes.
  • Available in various shades and different textures, and are aptly named (though not in English!) and is pocket friendly as per the quality.
  • The packaging is nice and the cap has dents that gives a good grip while applying. Also, it is the first brand of nail polish I came across, that lists all the ingredients (though written in microscopic letters), with the expiry date on the bottle.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE: 
  • Within two weeks of opening, the polishes have started to impart some oil (like old polishes do).
  • I don't know why, but Maybelline never launches all the shades in India (what have we done?! :( ). I want to try the Ruby Rays (google it...you would drool) shade next, but it isn't available here..boohoo.

VERDICT: This is surely a great range to try and I wonder why I hadn't till now! Great quality at a great price and some amazing shades to try out.

RATINGS:  4.5 out of 5
