   The Maybelline Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Enamels come in cylindrical glass bottle containers similar to other Color Show variants and are provided with a black colored screw caps engraved with the shade name and code number and attached with pliable applicator brushes. These bottles are attractive to look at, compact, sturdy and very travel friendly.
   The shade "Star Struck" consists of a base of clear polish which is interspersed with graffiti particles of varying shapes, colors and sizes - Large white colored stars, medium sized hexagonal light and dark blue and small and minute hexagonal white decals.
   The graffiti particles are well dispersed in the enamel solution and are easy to apply with the brush provided. The enamel has a quick dry formula and can be applied singly as an enamel or a top coat over a colored enamel. It has a good thin consistency to start with, but with time becomes thick and clumpy earlier compared to other enamels due to the presence of the graffiti particles. It has a staying power of 2 - 3 days by itself after which it starts to show tip wear, while it's durability is influenced by the base enamel when used in conjunction with one. The graffiti particles remain well stuck to the nails even after days of application but the larger white star shaped ones make for a difficult application due to its non flexible, sharp ends especially for those with tiny nails like mine. It can be tackled with a coat or two of clear polish or by carefully cutting off the pointy sharp ends with the help of a blade. Few of the blue colored particles loose color to appear white after a few days and also, it takes quite some time to get rid of the enamel with a remover. But nonetheless, the enamel gives a well manicured, zesty nail art look and instantly jazzes up the nails.
   Easily available across the nation and is pretty affordable!
