Maybelline has two range of nailpolish: Colorshow (with its multiple variants like THIS and THIS and THIS) and Superstay. While I love Colorshow collection for its wide range of colors, I LOVE Superstay range for everything else one looks for in a nailpolish. As the name says, this range of nailpolish is supposed to be long wear and give Gel finish. I have already reviewed my favorite Blue nailpolish HERE and here I am reviewing a gorgeous pastel peach color – Sunkissed 873
Price: Rs 350 for 10 ml
Maybelline Superstay Gel Nail Color 7 days: Sunkissed Review
Unlike colorshow range, Maybelline Superstay Gel nail polish comes in a flat, glass packaging with white cap. The shade name is stickered at the top and the list of ingredients is at the back in peel off sticker. Formula wise, these nailpolish are amazingly pigmented and creamy with glossy, plump finish. These are fast drying nailpolish and do not pose a problem if you are in a hurry. I am really impressed with the brush. I absolutely hate thin brushes in nailpolish. The flat, wide, U-curve brush makes the application breezy and less prone to error, especially around cuticles. Two coats give full pigmentation.
Sunkissed is a stunning pastel peach color. I LOVE pastel colors and this nailpolish is one of my fav, especially for summers (as the name suggests- Summer Bliss ).
Now coming to the Superstay claim, this nailpolish stays for 5-6 days with minor tip wear without a top coat and you can prolong the wear time by applying a top coat. I am a nailpolish hoarder and I know which nailpolish has better stay and which doesn’t. This nailpolish definitely is a win in long stay department.
The higher price of this range of nailpolish (as compared to Colorshow) is totally justified. You will feel the difference between the two range as soon as you start to apply these.
Word of caution though, the shade Sunkissed makes skin look a tad deeper in complexion.
In the swatches below, I have applied Colorshow Gold digger nailpolish in shade Bling Thing as top coat.
I have applied this nail polish as part of a nail art HERE.
Overall, Maybelline Superstay Gel nail color in shade Sunkissed is a beautiful pastel peach color which is ideal as spring/summer shade. The formula is creamy and highly pigmented. The wide, U-shaped brush makes the application incredibly easy. These are long lasting nailpolish and will last for 5-6 days at least if you wear it with a top coat. The formula is top notch. This shade however can make your skin tone look deeper. I love this shade nonetheless and I will definitely repurchase it.
