Review: Maybelline Color Show Nail Varnish in Downtown Red

Maybelline Color Show Nail Varnish - £2.99
A while ago I mentioned that I only had one red nail varnish which I subsequently gave to my sister as she favoured it more than I did. So, in guidelines with my 'one in, one out' rule I just had to buy another.

The red I chose is a lovely deep apple red which comes across a bit lighter in the photos than it is in real life. It's a real classic red which I do think I've been missing out on - who knew red nails went with pretty much everything?!

The Maybelline Color Show Nail Varnish in Downtown Red is a gorgeous, classic colour that will look absolutely fab during A/W. Usually I apply a different nail varnish each week but this lovely colour stayed on my nails for about a month as I love it so much! (With touch ups, of course.)

Now onto application! Downtown Red is a very opaque nail varnish and you could get away with one thick layer of it to completely cover your nails but I used two coats out of habit. You may notice in some of the photos that I had a tiny chip in my nail - this was after 2 days without a top coat which was a little frustrating but nothing that a little touch up wouldn't cure.
