Its been quite sometime since I did a NOTD post. A few of the nail posts in the coming months will not be “Nails of the DAY” per se since I have had these queued in the drafts since a few months. Good thinking on my part as my nails have been chipping like crazy since I’ve moved to US. Lifestyle change combined with more house hold chores being the catalysts! Hoping to get my nails back on track soon with all the extra nail care I’ve been doing these days *fingers crossed*. Anyway, here is my take on the beautifully gorgeous wine red shade called Downtown red (shade no:216) from the Maybelline Colorshow range.
Downtown red is by far the deepest red I have ever come across. Its screams winter/fall and is a delight to wear. I don’t know why but I feel this is THE shade to flaunt on dinner dates. It gives off a passion/seduction vibe :P. So ladies, get your claws in action!!
Downtown red is absolutely creamy in texture and applies opaque in 2 coats. Formula wise its quick drying as well as chip resistant if you don’t do much household work. Last time I wore it, it lasted on my nails without any traces of chipping for about 5 days straight. However now that I applied it again last week, it started chipping by day 3 which is not bad at all. Overall I love this shade and its definitely a color everyone should have in their collection.
Price 75 INR
