   The Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamels come as cylindrical, transparent glass bottles with a black colored screw cap which is engraved with the shade name and number. These bottles are attractive, compact, sturdy, travel friendly and have become the signature for all the enamels which have been released under the 'Color Show' label. The screw caps are provided with a brush attached on its underside. These brushes are soft and pliable, and help in easy application of the enamel.
   The shade Buried Treasure consists of a taupe base with the minutest hint of lavender undertones with gold particulates interspersed in it.
   The enamel formula has a perfect liquid consistency, neither too runny nor clumpy. Though a single coat gives a good amount of color, two coats are necessary to make the nails appear opaque. The enamel dries quickly after application to give a smooth, shiny finish without streaking of the color. While their availability in a wide range of shades makes them perfect to mix and match with the rest of your ensemble, their poor staying power lets them down. The enamel stays only for a day or two on my nails when applied singly without the use of a base or a top coat before it starts chipping. On the plus side, the formula is easy to remove and does not stain the nails while doing so.
   Ease of availability across the nation and a consumer friendly buying price makes them a hit amongst the users!
