Colorbar Arteffects Nail Lacquer ~ Pepper Pink : Review & Swatch

 

Colorbar relaunched its entire nailpolish collection as ‘1001 shades of Love‘ and I bought a few shades (Haul post HERE). I have previously reviewed a gorgeous burnt orange shade ‘Italian Spice’ HERE. In this post I am reviewing a beautiful speckled nailpolish from the Arteffects range – Pepper Pink.

 

Price: Rs 199 for 10 ml

Expiry : 3 years

 

Colorbar Arteffects Nail Lacquer Pepper Pink Review

  • Colorbar has not revamped the packaging, it is the same as previous bottle, only with a couple of tweaks. The colorbar logo now has a heart instead of ‘B’, and the cap of the nail polish is brown chrome color with new hearts logo of Colorbar on top. Other than this, the packaging and the brush is same as their last packaging (Read more about packaging and brush HERE)
  • Being a speckled polish, pigmentation is semi sheer and gives decent opacity in 2 coat. The semi sheer consistency brings out the hexagonals beautifully.
  • The formula is creamy and non streaky.
  • It dries quick.
  • Pepper Pink is a beautiful soft pastel pink color with matte flecks of small black glitter, medium glitter and large hexagonals of different sizes. The swatches below are 2 coats.

Psssst, check a top coat of chunky black and golden glitter by Maybelline HERE 

  • Pricewise this is a good buy for the quantity.
  • Colorbar claims it is formulated with a 7-free formulawithout formaldehydes, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, camphor, paraben, and xylene.
  • The removal part is quite a pain, but you can use a peel off base coat (like the one reviewed HERE), or use the foil method of glitter removal (Tutorial HERE). It will save you a lot of time and effort as the small glitter is hard to remove on its own.

Nykaa has a similar speckled nailpolish collection- Cookie Crumble and you may find a dupe for this nailpolish. Pricewise, nailpolish from both the brands are equally priced.

Haul: Colorbar Nailpolish – 1001 Shades of Love

 

Colorbar has recently launched the widest palette of nailpolish colors available in any brand- 1001 Shades of Love. It has so many shades under so many finish- be it textured or glossy or chrome or matte or glitter. And so obviously I couldn’t help but pick a few shades myself 😀

 

These are the shades I bought:

  • 412 Italian Spice
  • 469 Hotel de Paris
  • 856 Jackpot
  • 1086 Pineapple
  • 1301 Pepper Pink (Arteffects range)
  • 1352 Chameleon (Arteffects range)

 

I have bought these nailpolish online through the Colorbar website and I have noticed the colors are not exactly how it looks there. The Arteffects range is true to what it shows but the other shades look a tad deeper on the site than what it really is. So do keep that in mind if you order the shades through their official website.

 

I will post the review of these polishes soon. I have swatched the shade Chameleon on my Instagram handle HERE.

Other shades will follow soon 🙂
