Maybelline ColorShow Glitter Mania Paparazzi Purple : Review & NOTD

Hi Everyone,

Once again i have been MIA for a longtime. I think i should just stop writing this on my posts now! Lol...Anyway... I've been meaning to post this review since  a long time. A couple of months back Maybelline launched the Glitter Mania nail paints in India. I resisted picking them up for quite some time... Then i thought let's try at least one shade... there's no harm plus it doesn't even cost a bomb like other glitter polishes. So i went ahead and bought the shade Paparazzi Purple. Oh boy,after using this shade i was completely smitten by range. Slowly and steadily i have picked up almost all the shades :P

My Experience:

Maybelline Color Show Glitter polishes comes in a sleek cylindrical clear bottle with a black screw on cap. The shade name is mentioned on the cap. It comes with a very good quality brush.  I'm loving the look of the Glitter Mania Nail Paints. The texture of the nail color is neither runny nor too thick. It applies very evenly and smoothly onto the nails. It dries pretty fast and You need just two coats to get an opaque finish.

The shade Paparazzi Purple is a pretty purple shade with silver hexes and micro shimmer. These nail polishes give a slightly sand like texture to the nails. It's a slightly dark shade but i really love the way it looks on my nails. It adds a glamour quotient to your look. A must have shade from this range. This stays on my nails for a good 5 days without any sort of chipping. Only con of this nail polish is that removing it would be a task. This applies to all glitter polishes.


  1. Simple and compact packaging
  2. Good quality brush
  3. Dries very fast
  4. Gives a sand like texture to the nails
  5. Beautiful purple shade with shimmer and glitter particles
  6. Stays on for 5 days without chipping
  7. Adds a glamour quotient to your looks


  1. It's a dark shade which some people may not like
  2. Difficult to take off 

Final Views: 

Maybelline is one of my favourite brands and I'm highly impressed by this range as well... I went ahead and picked up 5 more shade *grins* If you haven't tried these out as yet please go and buy one shade... its impossible to get textured/ glitter nail polishes at this price. Plus, Paparazzi Purple is such a pretty shade....
