MY TAKE ON MAYBELLINE COLOR SHOW INTENSE MATTES NAIL POLISH
Packaging: The nail colors come in a frosted bottles that are sturdy and easy to carry around. The applicator tip is just like any other nail polish applicator.
Texture: The nail polish is quite opaque and thick yet easy to spread. It is very pigmented and you need not even need to apply a second layer for it to look opaque. Dries pretty quickly to a wonderful matte finish.
Shade: There are a total of 10 shades in the range, I got 2 shades-
Intense Red- This is a proper red shade and looks lovely on the nails!
Fierce Fuchsia- This is a deep pink shade and not really neon like most of the fuchsia shades.
How I use and staying power: To use, simply apply a single coat and let it dry for few minutes. Since the nail polish is quite pigmented and opaque, you may skip the second layer.
The nail polish dries to a completely matte finish within a minute or 2 and does not budge for the next few minutes after that like usual matte polishes that are thick. I always get dents on my matte nail polish even after drying but that did not happen with this product. The nail polish is quite long lasting and if you do not have a habit of using your nails as tools or doing the usual household chores, it should last for good 1 week without chipping. The range has all dark shades and no nudes or light pinks, which is why the product is called ‘intense matte’. If you love matte nail colors and do not like applying several coats for an opaque finish, this is the product you need to try!
