Packaging: The nail paints come in the usual transparent Maybelline nail polish bottles.
Texture: Since the shades are all glittery and contain fine sequences, the texture is a bit rough but a transparent top coat can be used to make it smooth.
Shade: Here is a summary on 4 shades I got:
Bling It On: This is a shimmery golden shade that contains fine golden shimmer along with bigger sized sequence in a transparent base. This is best used as a top coat as it does not have a colour of its own.
Bedazzle: This is similar to the above-mentioned shade, just that this is silver and not golden.
Tequila Sunrise: This is a dark pink coloured shade which is abundant in shimmer and actually looks pink when used alone. This too contains fine dark pink shimmer along with bigger sized pink sequence and fine golden shimmer in a transparent base. I like using it alone as well as a top coat.
Blushing Bubbly: This is similar to the above mentioned shade, just that this one is baby pink in colour and contains no prominent golden shimmer.
Fragrance: Smells like a usual nail polish.
How I use and staying power: These nail polishes can be used either alone or on top of any nail polish. I like using the golden and silver shade as a top coat either on a nail polish or on a French tip manicure. The pink shades are pigmented and can be used alone too. Now coming to the staying power, they last really long! Like seriously very very long. I clicked these pictures 12-15 days ago and I still have it on my nails looking fresh! I never expected any nail polish to stay this long that too without chipping. I mean, ok I don’t do a lot of house chores but even if you do, this will surely last for a week or maybe more. The problem comes when you have to remove it since you need a lot of nail polish remover and some efforts to remove everything especially if you have used this as a top coat! I am highly impressed with the shades I got and with the staying power; I am surely going to pick some more shades from these.
