18 Reviews

Availability: selected retail and department stores, and pharmacies

A quick-dry nail colour that goes from wet to set in 40 seconds. Maybelline’s Express Finish 40 is available in 12 different shades and 3 finishes (pearl, lacquer and diamonds), and also comes with a control-flow brush.

What we say:
‘Maybelline Express Finish nail polish is my new thing! It dries super fast, which suits my impatience perfectly and comes in the most amazing colours! With pastel and tropical colours being on trend this summer, you won’t have any trouble matching an outfit with any of the polishes in the Express Finish Collection.

‘I chose Exotic Violet and Turquoise Lagoon, and decided to be a little bolder than my usual self and use both colours alternatively on each finger. I really like the result, and I have received a few compliments, so it’s not just me. I just scratched the surface on nail art, and ladies around the world are styling
polka dots, chevron stripes, hearts, ombré and glitter, not even to mention the colour combinations! My advice, go wild. Try every colour, adorn your nails with shiny, sparkling things and be daring with your choice of colours this season. If not, why not? Maybelline also offers for some awesome options.

‘I encourage you to find your flare and mix it up a bit. Take a pic and post it on our Facebook page or our Pinterest boards. Simply follow us, drop us an email at and we’ll invite you to add your pics.’

I have tried many nail polishes in my life and this is by far the worst. It started chipping within a day! Never buy these!

I loved the flat tip brush as it made application super easy! It also dried in record time. Winner!



Excellent. I hate waiting long for my nail polish to dry. How long does it last on the nails though?

Sounds great, I haven’t noticed it in shops before.
