Nails of the Day: Maybelline Punky Orange

So this is the 4th Maybelline nail polish that I got. It is called Punky Orange and it is a beautiful pastel coral shade which looks amazing in a bottle.

But to get this shade on the nails – you’d need at least 3 layers and yet I can’t say that it’s opaque.ย  The colour is beautiful but I don’t like to have so many coats of nail polish on my nails.


  1. That’s the problem with so many polish offerings from Maybelline: you need too many coats. By the time you get a base coat, three or four coats of color, then a top coat, your nails feel unnatural and uncomfortable. Too bad because some of the colors are lovely.

    • Hi Eileen (nice to see you), that’s true, but not all shades are like this. I also got a bright pink shade which looks quite opaque with only 1 layer and with 2 coats it looks perfect. I will post about it next week.

  2. I love the coral colour… looks FAB on you and what a great colour for the summer sun! But I don’t think I could be bothered with three coats… Who’s got that long to do their nails anyway!!!???!!!

  3. The color’s beautiful but it’s a shame it’s not that pigmented. I find that’s a common problem with most Maybelline polishes. You need so many coats that application becomes such a hassle and so time consuming.
