This is a ghastly nail polish. It really is terrible and certainly not worth the price.
I purchased Peach Pie and Sugar Crystals. Sugar Crystals' glitters are very pretty, but be warned that the gorgeous pink/creamy colour that the product seems to have won't show up on your nails, so it's really just a sheer glitter nail polish. Peach Pie is very very clear, almost invisible with one coat. You have to have 2 to 3 layers of product on your nails for it to actually look like the colour you see in its packaging.
When you apply a second coat to your nail, the brush actually MOVES the first coat out of your finger. I don't know if this is because the formula is too watery, as it seems to be much more 'liquid-ish' compared to other nail polishes that I own (KIKO, Essence, Golden Rose, Yves Rocher). But when you, somehow, manage to work around these problems and make it work so that your nails look pretty, the top coat doesn't seem to adhere to the product and the end result looks smushy and sloppy. Like other girls have pointed out here, I paint my nails and 2 hours later if my nails are in contact with ANYTHING, the nail polish will move!
Maybelline's colours are pretty, yes, but the formula is downright outraging for its price, especially considering that there are better nail polish lines with much cheaper tags.
So, so disappointed. Didn't expect this from Maybelline at all. Do not get fooled by the sleek packaging and pretty colours, it's really not worth your money!

I don't understand the bad reviews for this, maybe the formula is different here in Europe? Anyways I got a scarlet blood-red one called Candy Apple and it is amazing. I love it. A perfect pure blood-red colour. It went on thick and opaque with just one coat, dried quickly. No bubbles and it was very smooth. I don't know how long it lasts because I just put it on (I don't often use nail polish.)

My husband picked up Antique Teal from the Vintage Leather collection. It dries down to a matte texture. I personally like shine with my nail colors so I just added a clear coat on top. This formula dries very quickly and even after one coat it is definitely opaque so if you go for two coats you will be fine. I'v never purchased a Maybelline nail color and for $3.99 I will definitely pick up more from this line

The quality of the nail polish is mediocre at best. I purchased Purple Possibilities 30. I have to admit that I was suckered in by the packaging, which makes it look “worthy”. For starters, the polish does not go on smoothly at all, sort of in clumps. It looks as if it dries as soon as it touches your nails, which doesn’t give you time to fully polish the whole nail. It dries to a matte finish. But the finished look is horrible because, as I stated, the polish dries immediately; so you just have overlapping layers of clumpy polish. Not a good look at all.
I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt by putting a couple drops of nail polish remover in it to thin it out, it didn’t work. They have a great selection of colors, and the price is, eh, but the quality is not so good.

I don't know where I read that this nail polish was an "Editor's Choice", but I know they must have been paid to give it high ratings. (Next time I'll check here first for a review!)
I've been using super cheap Wet n Wild polishes, and they are awesome. They are easy to apply, and they dry completely within minutes.
I saw 2 Maybelline polishes that I liked at the drugstore - one is silver and the other minty green. I was so excited to try the silver. I painted my nails almost 2 hours ago, and I have smudges and nicks in the finish becuase it's still a little tacky. Seriously, who has that much time to sit perfectly still for this long?
Thumbs down Maybelline!

I bought this in Sage Staple - on impulse, without reading any reviews. So I deserve what I get. Which is a horrible formula & a near impossible application.
Color: To be fair, the color is lovely. I have very fair skin, and lupus makes my joints & fingers look red & swollen. This army green color helps to neutralize the red & makes my fingers/hands look their "normal" color.
Application: Load your tiny brush up with all you'll need in one go. A second swipe will pull the color from the first swipe off of your nail. You'll need two coats, so you end up with two relatively thick, gloopy coats that probably aren't even. It dries to a velvety, if not smooth, matte finish. The weirdest thing was when I put the topcoat on (I use Seche Vite). On some nails it smoothed everything out nicely. On most nails, there was some bubbling. On one nail, there were spots where the topcoat just didn't "take"- so that nail is glossy with small, matte spots on it.
Bottom line: I can find a lovely olive green in other brands, and don't mind paying more for a polish that applies nicely. Unfortunately for Maybelline, there are plenty of polishes at comparable price points that apply better than this.

I have one in Icey Queen. I love the color but I hated the product. It was nice at first, but then it just wouldn't go on smoothly anymore. It also chips VERY easily. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I bought the maybelline color show nailpolish and it was a bad idea. Although the price isnt that bad and the packaging is good the nail polish texture is horrible and it looks very dry + It doesnt go on smoothly. I'm not usually picky but I got mad at this one...

hmm I don't really understand the bad reviews. I have it in the mint green colour and I think it applies quite smoothly and opaque

It' cheap and the quality is too. If you're lucky than this polish might not bubble or streak or chip on you. Better luck next time Maybelline.
Edit: Try skipping your top coat. It makes it less prone to bubbles.
