Nails of the Week: Maybelline Verde Palmeria

Hey Girls,

So, here are the Nails of the Week. This week it's Maybelline Colorma in Verde Palmeria. 

Price: INR 100 for 8 ml of the product. The packaging is standard Maybelline packaging with a cheap plastic cap housing the brush. I like the shape of the bottle though, very sleek :)

Ingredient list:

The brush is pretty sleek and deposits the nail paint evenly on my nails, not very streaky and not very smooth either. 

The nail paint is a gorgeous green color, perfect for the summers as it cools down my temperament instantly. The cap is pretty tacky though the brush is okayish and helps in even application of nail paint on my nails. This is one of my first Maybelline nail paints, so can't comment on the quality of earlier brushes or nail paints. The nail paint is fluid enough to spread easily on my nails, though it may thicken with time. Also, it is one of those colors that give a kind of glow to your hands while you are wearing them. The lasting power is okayish, just two days after which it loses its shine and starts chipping. Drying time is ok, with the total application time being 5 minutes for two coats of nail paint. 

And here is how the nail paint (two coats) looks on my nails:

And now for the nail art, I did on this nail paint with Konad image plate m79. I am loving the pattern so much, got lots of compliments from family as well as friends :)

Product rating: A, available at all Maybelline counters and e-shopping websites. Would definitely be buying more shades of these and in fact have got two more Coral Chic and a lavender shade (forgot the name). Would recommend these to girls looking for some fun colours.

Do tell in the comments section below, what do you think about my nail art? And which is your favorite image plate?

Take care...
