My Overview of the Product :
Uptown Blue is such a beautiful shade of blue! It is very much sky blue – a color which we identify so easily with ever since we were kids. 🙂 When I first saw the shade, I wasn’t sure how it would translate on my nails. But girl, this one looks heavenly! I’m so much in love with the shade, that I can actually go on and on rambling about it. 😛 I feel Uptown Blue is very much a spring or summer shade, when we have those pristine blue skies with the sun’s golden rays seeping through… This would be my shade for a vacay to the beach. 🙂
Uptown Blue isn’t a stark shade of blue, rather turns out quite pastel and as I said, summery. 🙂 The packaging of the polish is good, the applicator brush even better! The consistency is pretty awesome and together with the stout brush, results in an opaque coverage with a single coat. This is pretty amazing and I’m super impressed. However I tend to go with a double coat.
The finish is super glossy and smooth, and I love it. The luster wanes down a little after around 3 days but it’s really not noticeable. On my nails, the color stayed on for a whole 5 days (without a top coat), and started chipping at the tips on the sixth day. However, if you’re spending a lot of time in the kitchen, or a cleaning spree is on your mind, I’d suggest you to go with a top coat to add on to the longevity of the polish. 🙂
The Final Verdict :
I absolutely love the Maybelline Super Stay Gel Nail Color Uptown Blue on my nails. It delivered more than I expected. So you know it definitely feels good. 🙂 The packaging is simple and neat, the brush amazing and the finish satiny and lustrous. It may not live up to its claim of staying put for 7 days, but it didn’t wear off too soon as well. It means that Maybelline did formulate this polish to be long wearing, and did not just throw it in the air as a publicity gimmick. 🙂 Kudos for that!
There are numerous shades to try from this range, and I’m planning to get a few more of these. I love the finish and the ease of application too. And Uptown Blue is a shade for keeps. 🙂
