Colorbar cosmetics recently revamped its entire nailpolish collection and I picked up a few shades. All the nailpolish range now have same packaging and some of the previous shades (like 24 ct collection or heavy metal collection) have been branded as ‘Arteffects‘ range. I have already reviewed the following shades:
Snow White (2nd shade in pic above)- beautiful off-white color with heavy shimmer
Pinken Gold – gorgeous duochrome orange-pink color
Liquid Gold – unique antique bronze color
In this post I am reviewing a deep red color- Heroine (first one in pic above).
Price: Rs 250 for 12 ml
Colorbar Luxe Nail Lacquer Heroine Review
Colorbar Luxe nail lacquer comes in thick, cube glass bottle with short brush. The nailpolish bottle looks attractive but feels heavy and bulky and takes up more space in stacking. The brush cap is silver colored with ‘CB’ logo embossed on top. The shade name and other details are stickered at the bottom. The brush is short and wide and slightly rounded which helps in clean application.
Heroine is a beautiful deep red color with faint brown tones. This is not a vibrant but mature kind of red, and looks absolutely gorgeous when applied. This shade is perfect for fall. It The pigmentation is good and needs 2 coats for full opacity. One coat looks vibrant cherry red (similar to THIS Chambor nailpolish) and second coat gives the deeper color. The consistency is creamy and application is uniform and non streaky. The finish is glossy and it dries quick.
Unfortunately, the wear time is not so impressive. The Arteffects range is more long lasting than this. Tip wear started after 2 days and proper chipping started after 4 days. Pricewise it is okay for the quantity.
Overall, Colorbar Luxe Nailpolish comes in short, glass bottle which looks attractive but feels bulky. The brush is short and slightly rounded which helps in clean application. The consistency is creamy and pigmentation is good. It needs 2 coats for full color build up. Finish is glossy. The shade Heroine is a beautiful deep red color which will suit all skin tones. This nailpolish is okay for its price as the quantity is big (12 ml). The only con is the wear time as it starts to chip after 3-4 days.
