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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 Snow White is a gorgeous off white shade with holographic  small glitter which gives it a beautiful dimension. It lasts 4-5 days with tip wear setting after 2 days. 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.

Maybelline Colorshow Party Girl nailpolish ~ Rock the Night 117: Review & Swatch

 

 

Glitter nailpolishes scream party and with all the festivity in the air, they are perfect to adorn at this time of the year. Party Girl collection from Maybelline colorshow has been around for sometime and I have already reviewed 3 of the shades: Tequila Sunrise, Fireworks and Party Lights. In this post I am reviewing another gorgeous shade: Rock the Night 117

Pssst! My love for Glitter nailpolish can be seen HERE 😀

 

Price: Rs 175 for 6 ml

 

Maybelline Colorshow Party Girl nailpolish Rock the Night 117 Review

Rock the Night 117 is a beautiful dark blue nail polish with dark blue  hexagonals and golden shimer suspended in a sheer blue baseThe nailpolish has golden shimmer which gives this naipolish a beautiful golden-peacock bluish sheen. Maybelline Party girl range of nail polish is loaded with the glitters which remain suspended and does not settle down at the bottom of the bottle. The glitter does not tug and the nail polish settles into a smooth finish. The dark blue hexagonals against a blue base gives an overall  diffused shimmer to this shade.

The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottle with black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks enough nailpolish for one coat. It takes 2 coats for full color intensity as one coat is slightly sheer. But if applied properly,  one coat looks beautiful on its own.

Rock the Night 117 being glitter nailpolish, its removal can be quite a pain, especially if you layer this polish a lot. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE.

The tip wear/chipping starts after 3-4 days, which is quite okay, as I don’t expect these polish to be super long lasting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Rock the Night 117 is a beautiful dark blue glitter nailpolish with a golden-peacock blue sheen. This nailpolish is loaded with glitter and 2 coats give full coverage. This is a beautiful color to glamour up the nails. Party Lights range of Maybelline Colorshow is my favorite so far and I will keep on repurchasing the shades.

Revlon Nail Enamel : Splash ~ Review & Swatch

Revlon launched Glitzy Nights range last year and I picked this beautiful black-green glitter nailpolish from the range. I have reviewed the Revlon Colorstay range  previously and I absolutely LOVED it. You can check the review HERE.

 

Price: Rs 375 for 8 ml

Revlon Nail Enamel: Splash 507 review

Revlon Glitzy Nights Nail Enamel comes in classic Revlon Nail enamel glass bottle with black cap and gold detailing. The shade name is stickered on top.

The shade 507 Splash is a beautiful black- green glitter nailpolish with golden, green glitter suspended in sheer black base. The nailpolish is loaded with glitter and the brush picks up enough for uniform application.  The glitter is medium sized and not too chunky. It looks holographic in bottle, but not too much on the nails. The consistency is thick but it helps in applying the glitter uniformly on the nails. One coat is slightly sheer and 2 thick coats give full opacity. The brush is not great  and is rather thin. I hate thin brush in nailpolish as it leads to streaking and uneven application. But Splash being a glitter nailpolish, the streaks are not much visible.

These nailpolish stay put for 3 days with minimal tip wear, which is quite impressive as most nailpolish start to wear off by 3-4th day.

I have reviewed other Glitter nailpolish HERE.

Glitter nail polish are quite hard to remove, especially if you layer this polish a lot. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Revlon Glitzy night Nail Enamel in shade 507 Splash is a beautiful golden-green glitter in black base. The glitter are medium sized and does not tug or pull. The stay of this nailpolish is impressive and stays on for 3-4 days with minimal tip wear. However, the brush is too thin for my liking. Also, the price is on the higher side. Other than that, this is a gorgeous party color, especially if you like dark colors.

Golden Polka Dots nail art

 

It has been a while since I last posted Nail art. I had the pics of this nail art lying and I thought to put it to better use 😛

I love polka dots nail art as they are easiest to do without much effort and look the funkiest. I have done other Polka dots nail art. Do check it HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

This is one super simple nail art and all you need is a bobby pin/ toothpick/ dotting tool and nailpolish of your choice.

I clicked the pics after 2-3 days I did the nail art that is why you can see tip wear on my nails.

I have used Maybelline Colorshow nailpolish in shade Bold Gold.

Nail Art: Floral

 

It has been a while since I posted a nail art, and this one has been sitting in my folder for sooo long. This is an easy peasy floral nail art.

I chose the color pink, but you can pair it with any color of your choice.  This is one of my go-to nail art when I dont want to spend much time doing it. All you need to do this nail art is a dotting tool/ bobby pin/ tooth pick and your choice of nail polish. I like to do my dots using a tooth pick as it gives more uniform dots.

Do try this nail art and link back if you like 🙂
