Maybelline Color Show Nail Disaster

So this product immediately caught my eye when I first saw it. Its the most beautiful turquoise I have ever seen and I just had to have it on my nails at that very moment

In all fairness this product apply's nicely and smoothly with no bumps or clumpy bits. Its very much true to colour and looks great on the nails when its been freshly applied. So for a while I had absolutely no problem with this product. It's staying power was nice with little to no chipping after its first week of being applied to the nails. It was when it came to taking off the nail varnish with my regular nail varnish remover, that the problems began. 

As you can see below the nail varnish completely stained my nails with the colour making them go a vile greeny/ yellow color that I have yet to figure out how to remove.

I have decided to hide my nails from the population from further notice by applying a nail varnish over the top to hide all that stain. I also noticed after a while that the polish had not only stained my nails but it had also made them extremely dry and weak. I cannot review this product more poorly.

I have been a fan of Maybelline's products and I'm extremely disappointed in this situation I'm in. I will be thinking twice about purchasing any products from this brand again and be staying away from their nail varnishes entirely! 

Please comment telling me if you have had the same situation occur to you or anything similar so I can find out if its the products line or just a faulty defected product I obtained. Thank you for reading! 


  1. Hi! I have just read a couple of your posts and have really gained some tips for what to look out for and what to miss in the shops! I'm very glad I found you, hehe xx did you apply a base coat before applying this nail varnish? I have to say maybelline nail varnishes are one of the few that I haven't actually tried and now I'll be staying well clear from the likes of them. If you have the time, I've just started my blog and would be extremely greatfull if you could possibly check it out? If you are interested from the few posts then you are welcome to follow. http://xbeyoutifulx.blogspot.co.uk
