Colorbar has rebranded the previous 24 ct range of nailpolish as Arteffects range and I have a few shades of the 24 ct range with me. I have already reviewed a gorgeous bronze gold shade- Liquid Gold HERE and in this post I am reviewing my favorite shade of the collection- Pinken Gold.

 

Price: Rs 325 for 12 ml

 

Colorbar Arteffects Luxe Nail Lacquer Pinken Gold Review 

Colorbar has standardized the nailpolish packaging and you won’t find any of the previous cuboidal packaging at the counters now. The pics below are of old packaging. The new packaging is thick, cube glass bottle which feels heavy (same as in THIS review). The brush is short and stout but wide to pick enough product for 1 coat application. The shade name is stickered at the bottom. Being a bit heavy and huge, it takes up more space in storage than the previous packaging..

Pinken gold is a beautiful dark pink color with gorgeous orange duochrome effect. It has gold and pink microshimmer which gives an added depth to this beautiful color. The consistency is sheer in 1 coat and takes 2-3 coats for full opacity, depending on the thickness of coats you apply.  It dries fast and there is no waiting time in between multiple coats application. Pinken Gold is a one of its kind shade with prominent duochrome effect. If you are fond of pink colors, do check this one. The shade is quite different and unique from other shades in Indian market.  This nailpolish will suit all skin tones.

Wear time for this nailpolish is good and tip wear starts after 2-3 days  (without top coat) on my dominant hand. Proper chipping sets in after 5-6 days. Price is a bit high but this is a big bottle (12 ml) so it is ok if you do the math, compared to other nailpolish in market (Maybelline’s Colorshow range is Rs 175 for 6 ml).

There are many naipolish in market claimed to have duochrome effect. But if you want true duochrome action, this is the nailpolish to look for.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Colorbar Arteffects Luxe Nailpolish comes in short, glass bottle which feels bulky and heavy compared to Colorbar’s previous packaging. The brush is short and slightly rounded which helps in clean application. The consistency is sheer and needs 3 coats for full coverage. Price wise, this nailpolish is okay for its price as the quantity is big (12 ml). The shade Pinken Gold is a gorgeous pink color with orange duochrome effect. It has pink and golden microglitter which adds a subtle depth to the color.  It lasts 5-6 days with tip wear setting after 2-3 day (without top coat). It will suit all Indian skin tones. You don’t get to see true duochrome shades in Indian market and this one is worth the buy. I will definitely repurchase.

xoxo, Blossom

 

 

Colorbar Arteffects Luxe Nail Lacquer ~ Liquid Gold : Review & Swatch

I bought a few shades from 24 ct range of Colorbar nailpolish when they hadn’t revamped their nailpolish packaging. I think this was an amazing range with wide variety of gold shades. But now Colorbar has rebranded these shades under their Arteffects nailpolish range.  The packaging of Liquid Gold is like the pic above. I have reviewed another gorgeous shade from Arteffects range HERE.

Colorbar Arteffects Luxe Nail Lacquer Liquid Gold Review 

Colorbar has standardized the nailpolish packaging. The pics below are of old packaging. The new packaging is thick, cube glass bottle which feels heavy . The brush is short and stout but wide enough to pick enough product for 1 coat application. The shade name is stickered at the bottom.

Liquid gold is a beautiful bronze gold color with pink and gold microshimmer. It has a pearly finish and does not have a dazzling shine, which makes it more attractive in my opinion as it gives the nails a rustic look. The consistency is quite sheer and takes 3 coats for full opacity. Colorbar claimed 24 ct range had duochrome effect, and to be honest I didn’t see any duochrome action with this nailpolish. But this is a beautiful shade nevertheless. Liquid Gold is not a bright color and if you like subtle shades, definitely check this one. This nailpolish will suit all skin tones, especially dusky skin beauties.

Wear time for this nailpolish is okay and tip wear starts after 1 day (without top coat). Proper chipping sets in after 3-4 days. Price wise, it is okay for the quantity (12 ml).

This is not a bright shade and will suit all Indian skintones.

Colorbar Arteffects Luxe Nail Lacquer ~ Snow White : Review & Swatch

 

Colorbar has changed its nailpolish packaging and launched some new range. Arteffects range of Colorbar nailpolish has some of the old shades (24 ct collection & Heavy metal collection) and some new shades.

I am reviewing a beautiful glitter off-white shade from Colorbar Arteffects range in this post- Snow White 26.

 

Price: Rs 325 for 12 ml

 

Colorbar Arteffects Luxe Nail Lacquer Snow White Review

Colorbar has changed its nailpolish packaging and now all the range have same packaging- thick, cube glass bottle with short brush. The nailpolish bottle feels heavy and bulky and honestly I liked the previous bottle more. Stacking of these nailpolish now takes up more space (I had to carry 5-6 while moving from Delhi to Mumbai, so I know how inconvenient this packaging is especially for travel).  The brush cap is silver colored with ‘CB’ logo embossed at the top. The shade name and other details are stickered at the bottom. The brush is short and wide and slighly rounded which helps in clean application (I ike rounded brush like THESE).

The pigmentation is slightly sheer and needs 3 coats for full opacity. Being sheer, this may also be used as a top coat. This nailpolish feel smooth to touch and not at all  gritty or sand textured like other glitter nailpolish.

Snow White is a beautiful off white color with heavy shimmer. The glitter is very fine so it doesnot stand out against the nailpolish like THIS nailpolish, but gives a beautiful dimension to the overall color. The small glitter are holographic and the holographic effect is slightly visible in pic at the top of this post. Being holographic, the shimmer appears to be multicolor and looks beautiful against the off white color. This shade is a beautiful alternative to silver and white colors.

Price is a bit high but this is a big bottle so it is ok if you do the math, compared to other nailpolish in market (Maybelline’s Colorshow range is Rs 175 for 6 ml). Tip wear is after 2 days and proper chipping starts after 4-5 days.

I have used this nailpolish in Christmas nail art I did recently HERE.

I am in love with this shade. This is such a nice alternative to white and silver. I will repurchase this color, though I think this bottle will last fairly a long time.
