This week I am going to paint the town red! After the much coveted red lips with MAC Ruby Woo (read here), I am here with shiny red paws. I love painting my paws in bright shades and I make it a point to change my nail paint color every week. Infact girls in my office often ask me how do you maintain your nails so well 365 days around!!! Well…..that’s a hobby you see! I am religiously doing this exercise from years now.
Today’s review is on a beautiful orangish red- Keep Up The Flame from Maybelline India.
What Maybelline India Says:
Make a bold style statement with Maybelline New York’s Color Show nail color range.
- With trendy, super stylish shades, these nail colors add oodles of attitude to your overall look.
- Presenting 40 attractive shades, the Maybelline Color Show Range let’s you mix, match and experiment with color!
- Here’s why you’ll love it:
- Nail colors have a gel-based formula for increased staying power
- Is chip-resistant and comes with an easy-flow brush
- Available in 40 different shades
Price: Rs. 100/- (was Rs.75 sometime back!)
Packaging: is same as other color show nail paints. Nothing fancy. A simple cylindrical bottle.
Shade: Keep Up The Flame is a gorgeous tomato red color. Its ahmazzzinngg!!!! Perfect summerish color. Can pair it with western and Indian wear both. Also the orange tones in the shade are not much obvious, thus it does not make hands look darker.
Texture: the texture of the nail paint is perfect! Neither too runny nor too thick. Just the perfect consistency to be applied evenly on all nails.
Pigmentation: this particular shade is very pigmented and goes opaque in single coat itself, however, I like to use 2 coats for that perfect color to show.
I love love love this shade and have worn it so many times this season! It makes my hands look fairer and gets me compliments from people around.
The brush that comes along is also nice to use, applies the nail paint evenly on the tiny nails also.
The shades in this range are awesome and very shiny and the shine lasts throughout till you remove it.
The staying power of this particular shade is decent enough. 2 coats easily last for 3-4 days without chipping. I always follow this up with a transparent top coat and this way my nails remain chip free for the whole week.
- Beautiful shade of red
- Perfect consistency
- Nicely pigmented
- Decent staying power
- Brush applies well
- Decently priced
Not So Best Features:
Do I Recommend: Definitely yes! The quality is top notch for the price this comes at and the shade!!! Aaahhhh……its sheer love.
