Maybelline SuperStay 7 Days Gel Nail Color Review | 230 Berry Stain
Hi there, guys! How are you today? I hope you're having an amazing day and you'll enjoy this post! Let's go!
I have never done a product review, so I thought I could give it a try. I recently found a blog post (though I've lost the link, I'm sorry >.<) that featured a summary of all the Nail Polishes in the Maybelline SuperStay 7 Days range, and let me say I instantly fell in love with all of them! I especially liked the Berry Stain shade, so I broke my hiatus (it had been 6 months since I bought my last nail polish! I kept buying more and I needed to calm down hahaha) and bought it!
The top picture was taken some hours after having applied it, and you can see the shade is completely gorgeous. I don't think I've EVER gotten so many compliments on a nail polish shade, I got a lot for this one! I also like that it is wearable during every season, even though I think it would look its best in Autumn (I live in a zone full of vineyards and it would suit the season so much!). It's quite glossy, even more if you apply a top coat, but the colour is opaque and very pigmented: you only need two layers and it's done! It dries really quickly too, which is something I really like because I don't seem to manage being still until they get dry. It's not bubbly, the brush is quite thick so you don't have any problems when applying it, it dries evenly, no streaks...
It's not hard to see I loved it A LOT! It's more expensive than the ColorShow range (€5.99 against €1.99), but I think I'm gonna be checking out more of them, even though I'll stick with ColorShow most of the time because the price in relation to the quality is a bargain. I've already eyed new shades from both the ranges and I can't wait to try them out. Bring them on!
Finally, the last question comes: do they really last seven days? Well, you can see on the picture below that they do. I've been wearing it for 8 days now and, although it has begun to fade at the top of some nails (don't mind the thumb one, I didn't do my best job at applying it so it's competely my fault), they still look amazing. If I wanted them perfectly perfect I would change it by now, but I'm not really picky with that and I reckon they will last some more days, maybe even a week! I think next time I use this shade I won't apply a top coat to see if I can notice any changes.
All in all, I totally recommend buying it. The shades are gorgeous and the quality really good. I bet you won't be disappointed!
Have you tried any nail polish shade from this range? Which one would you recommend? Thanks for reading and see you on Monday!
A big big hug,
