Love treasure hunt? Go hunting for Maybelline Glitter Mania Nail Polishes!!

Yes! Finally in India we are paying attention to our nails! We'll, not that I am a manicure girl. But point your finger at one girl you can single out who doesn't enjoy her nail polish. I, being terrible at nail art, have to look otherwise.

Besides, I see no point of nail art. The hours of labor would anyway go waste in a day or two. I would
rather stick to nail polishes of different textures. So far, we have had some flakes of glitters at exorbitant price.

 But Maybelline took it upon itself to set the ball in motion and make our life easier!

Texture: I am loving the texture! This is not the regular glitter finish which looks like a shiny disco ball. But they are like grains of sand you want to play around in. It's like colored sparkling sand in my dream!

Application: The brushes are better than what I expected. They do  neat nice job.The best part of these nail polishes are that they are so forgiving! With normal polishes, I am always worried about streaks etc. Since this does not give the typical 'shiny finish', the gritty texture doesn't allow any streaks to show up! All the better for people like me who have the skills of 4 year old!

Drying: For the texture,they dry pretty fast. I would wait for five minutes between coats. One coat is enough, though I prefer two. ( Don't ask me why because I do not know! ).

Staying power: Well, I can't keep myself from running and scratching my nails. The grit and the beautiful color and the overall effect, I can't keep myself from touching!! ( Rather scratching with my nails and feel the grit! ). But for three or more days, I have not seen any chipping. After that I removed the first color and wore the second. So, can't comment on that.

Removal: Oh yes. Removing these is a real pain. Because of the glitters, the paint refuses to melt. I used my Colorbar Nailpolish remover pot which normally takes off everything in a jiffy. This time, I had to struggle hard. I think any other method would work. But foil method or this kind of pots work way better.

Love Love Love!! I am picking up more colors from the line. Yes, I am surely doing that!

In case you are wondering, no, I won't swatch the colors over here. I won't swatch them here at all! Each of them deserves to steal the show!! So, stay tuned!
