Two Thumbs Up: Maybelline Express Finish 50 Second Nail Color

A Product Review by Here We Are

Maybelline Express Finish Nail Polish in Racey Red

Product UPDATE: This product has been discontinued by Maybelline. SAD, but true!

It is still available online: Buy it here while you still can!!

In the meantime, I am currently testing a few other options and will let you know my results in an upcoming HWA product review. ~ Luci, 8/5/15

Ereka!! I've found it! Please see my latest product review on a quick drying nail polish, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Is Insta-Handy! Love it, and I think you will, too!! ~ Luci, 7/30/18


This little bottle of color will lend a hand in helping you paint the town red in a flash! With 20 shades to choose from, this is definitely a time-saving product to have in your beauty kit.

10 Top FingerTips for Maybelline's Express Finish 50 Second Nail Color:

1. It's dry in the two minutes it takes to apply one coat to both hands.

2. One coat gives you plenty of color with semi-opaque coverage.

3. Two coats gives you opaque coverage.

4. Due to its thin consistency, it is easy to brush on and control the amount of polish on the brush.

5. The .5 fluid ounce bottle lasts a long time without becoming clumpy or dried out.

6. Two coats of polish produces the color you see in the bottle.

7. While it's quick to apply, it is also quick to remove with regular polish remover without residual staining on the nails.

8. One coat lasts approx. 3 days but will start to fade around the edges a bit with lots of handwashing (not bad considering it only takes a minute to apply). NOTE: I only tested this on my hands.

9. Two coats lasts approx. 5 days. Again, unlike chipping, it will fade away at the edges, but it is quick & easy to touch up if you need to prolong the wearing time.

10. Most large drug store chains carry it for less than $4.00.

Bonus: This product also works well for quick and easy touch-ups which is perfect for your travel bag.

@Jessica: It really is... I know about that big fingerprint! This polish totally avoids that issue. Thanks for popping by HWA. :)


This sounds great! I'm one of those people who can't stand waiting for nail polish to dry. I always wait about 2 minutes and then I "test" to see if it's dry. Sometimes I'm right and other times I leave a big ugly fingerprint.
