Maybelline Glitter Mania Nail Polish, Red Carpet: Review, Swatches

Hello there!

Till now, I have reviewed the shades ‘All That Glitters’ and ‘Starry Nights’ from Maybelline’s Glitter Mania range. And today, I have with me the detailed review of the shade ‘Red Carpet’. So without further ado, let’s get started. Stay tuned…

What The Brand Claims: These sparkling nail colors deliver a 3D shimmering effect, adding oodles of style to your tips. They also have a unique sand-textured effect that looks and feels great on your nails. With 8 glittering nail color shades to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect shade for every mood.

Packaging: Like most Maybelline nail polishes, this one too comes in a cute little glass bottle that is sturdy and travel friendly. The shade name along with the shade number is mentioned at the top of the bottle, while other details such as MRP and manufacturing date are specified at the side of the bottle cap. The brush is also convenient-to-use and picks up a good amount of product.

Shade: ‘Red Carpet’ is a deep red shade with loads of finely milled glitter particles. Being a textured polish, it settles into a lovely matte glitter finish. The color is pure love! 🙂 It is beyond stunning and looks absolutely gorgeous on the nails.

My Experience With The Product: Maybelline Glitter Mania Nail Polish in the shade Red Carpet has a really smooth formula, that is just perfect. It is neither too thick nor too runny! It is easy to apply and effortlessly spreads on the nails. The pigmentation of this shade is bang on! It is superbly pigmented and just one swipe gives a rich color payoff. But out of habit, I always apply 2 coats. The glitters are very finely milled into the polish and do not feel harsh or gritty at all.

The nail polish dries down quickly and settles into a stunning glitter matte finish; that looks lovely on the nails. It has a good lasting power and easily stays on for 5-6 days. But like most nail polishes, it does start to chip off from the tips if you are into everyday kitchen chores. The product is reasonably priced and can be easily found at Maybelline counters as well as online.
