Maybelline Express Finish 40 seconds Turquoise Lagoon review

Maybelline Express Finish 40 seconds – Turquoise Lagoon

I am bored of seeing reds, browns and pink shades on my nails, so thought of trying pastel shade this time. Pastels in summers are such a breezy thing, i love to wear pastel colors that doesn’t make my hands look dull. This Maynelline Express Turquoise Lagoon is one such color. Awesome color, texture and glossy finish, Maybelline nailed it this time. I have other colors from this range which i will be reviewing soon.

What Maybelline India says about this Range:

MRP: Rs. 220. I bought it for Rs. 200, may be price has been revised.

Why You’ll Love It
•Quick dry anti chip formula and vivid shades
•Unique Control-Flow brush applies only the required amount of nail color for a smooth and even application
•Long lasting color in 18 dazzling shades.
•From wet to set in 40 seconds

Expert Tip
With one sweep, paint the first line of nail polish up the center of your nail starting from the base to the tip. For the cleanest look, be sure to leave a small space at the base of the nail. Then apply color to the rest of the nail with additional sweeps of polish on each side of the original line. Let your nails dry before applying a second coat.

Lets get started with reviewing this gorgeous shade.

Color: Beautiful Turquoise shade that comes as a cool breeze in summers. Perfect summer shade.

Formula/Texture: The Formula is perfect, neither too runny nor too thick. The best part is it sets and dries quickly, which is why i love this range the most. It is perfectly in tune with the fast pace life we people are living.

Brush:  Brush is wide and ideal for precise application, it cover my nails in just two swipes. It fans out over the nail distributing the color uniformly, but the credit for it also goes to its texture. Haven’t the texture be so good the brush would not be able to bring out the uniform color.


Application: Application is smooth thanks to the wonderful formula and wide brush. The application is very uniform with no streakiness at all.


Opacity: Great, provides full coverage in just 2 swipes. The color on the nails comes out to be exactly same as that in bottle.

Dry Time: Dry time is really quick as claimed by Maybelline. I applied the second coat right after completing the first coat on all the finger nails and noticed that first coat was completely dry.

Longevity: I had a wear time of 5 days. But i do not do much of the household work, the longevity may vary for the ladies who do so.
Removal: Easy to remove, i had applied 2 coats.

I really recommend to all the lovely ladies out there to try this shade. You will love it!!

My Rating: 5/5
