Maybelline launched Party Girl collection last year towards the end and I have been meaning to review them on my blog ever since. This is such a stunning collection and anyone who loves glitter polish will go bonkers. I myself had to control myself from buying too many shades (I only picked 4 :P) I will review the shades I have and here I am reviewing my favorite shade from the collection : Tequila Sunrise 112
Pssst! My love for Glitter nailpolish can be seen HERE 😀
Price: Rs 175
Tequila Sunrise 112 is a beautiful rose gold-pinkish nail polish with rose gold hexagonals and glitter. The nailpolish has golden shimmer which gives this naipolish a beautiful rose gold sheen. This 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 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 it is high on golden shimmer so you can wear one coat also.
The shade is more golden and light pink as compared too swatches below which are more pink and less gold.
Tequila Sunrise 112 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 ok, as I dont expect these polish to be super long lasting.
Overall, this is a beautiful rose gold glitter nailpolish and if you love glitter and if you love the color rose gold, you should definitely check it out.
Maybelline has an entire range on gold themed nail colors: Gold Digger Collection, and I am reviewing a beautiful peach color nailpolish from this range ~ Gilded Rose 903
I have reviewed the first three shades in the pic above HERE, HERE and HERE
Price: Rs 145
Gilded Rose 903 is a peach colored nail polish with sugar texture.
It comes in classic Colorshow packaging: cylindrical transparent bottle with black cap and name engraved on top. The brush is decent but not great. Gilded Rose is a peach colored nail polish with peach and golden shimmer. This is not as bling shade as some of the OTHERS in this collection, but it is a good shade if you like subtle colors. However, this shade can make hands look dark, so try it at the counters before you purchase.
People confuse this shade of Gold Digger collection with ‘Pink Champagne’ shade of the previous Glitter Mania collection. There is a difference between the two shades, the latter being more blingy and rose gold in color, and Gilded rose is peachy in color with toned down bling. Also, there is no chunky glitter in Gilded Rose. The texture however, is the same. Personally, I like Pink Champagne shade more.
This is not a top coat, and it takes 2-3 coats to build the color. The tip wear starts after 3-4 days. Being a glitter nailpolish, its removal is quite a pain. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE
Overall, this is a good color if you like subtle colors with toned down bling. This is a great office appropriate color in my opinion. But it may make hands look dark, so try it on your nails first.
This year has gone by so fast, don’t you think? It’s november already! The evenings have started to get chilly and the sun has hidden under the thick smog (Seriously Delhi, where do you want to go with the pollution levels?!) While the winter is about to make its entry in this part of the world, I thought of reviewing my fav nail polish for winter. Spring is about colors and vividness, Fall is all about dark colors. Revlon Colorstay LongWear Nail Enamel in shade Bold Sangria is one perfect Fall color.
Price: Rs 350 for 11.7 ml
Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in shade Bold Sangria is a beautiful eggplant purple nail polish which flatters my medium skin toned hands. I don’t like wearing black nail polish and this is such a beautiful alternative to wear dark, gothic colors. The color is dark eggplant purple but it also appears bit brownish in some lighting.
Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamels come in a sturdy cylindrical bottle with shade name sticked on top. What impressed me most apart from the color is the brush of this nail polish. The double-barrel brush is wide with tapered corners, making nailpolish application a dream. The entire nail gets covered in two strokes. I absolutely hate thin brushes and the brush of this nail polish is amazing. The unique shape of the brush allows hassle free and quick application.
The formula of this nailpolish is creamy, it is neither too runny nor too thick. Color consistency is great and gives full coverage in 2 coats. The finish is super shiny and it looks high end on the nails. I saw minor tip wear starting next day onwards, but this happens with almost ALL the nailpolish I own (As seen in pics below). I would call it pretty long lasting if applied with a top coat.
One thing to note is that this is NOT quick drying and it will take its fair share of time to dry. So better apply it when you are not in a hurry. I applied it at night and even after giving it full time to dry, ended up with crease marks in morning.
Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in shade Bold Sangria is a beautiful eggplant purple color. The consistency is creamy and highly glossy. The brush of this nailpolish is unique and makes the application hassle free. Only drawback is this is not quick drying. But the color is so gorgeous that it has become my fav Fall color. If you like dark, gothic nail colors, do give this one a try.
Maybelline has an entire range on gold themed nail colors: Gold Digger Collection, and I am reviewing a stunning top coat from this range ~ Gold Gluttony 905
I have reviewed the first two shades in the pic above HERE and HERE
Price: Rs 145
Gold Gluttony is a transparent nail polish with chunks of gold flakes of different sizes. This is a top coat and looks great on both light as well as dark base colors. This is a no-fuss nail polish which can take your manicure up a notch in no time.
It comes in classic Colorshow packaging: cylindrical transparent bottle with black cap and name engraved on top. The brush is decent but not great. I think the brush could have been wider to pick such chunky gold leaves effectively. Sometimes, I am left with only 1-2 gold specks in one coat and so have to place the gold flakes individually on each nail. Also, using multiple coats to load up on the bling makes it gloopy and slow to dry.
Other than that, it is a great nail polish to bling up the manicure. I always wanted a nailpolish like this- gold chunky leaf glitter, and this one is a great budget option to have.
Being a glitter nailpolish, its removal is quite a pain. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE
Colorbar has recently launched a new range of Nail polish- the Heavy Metal Collection. There are seven beautiful shades in this collection and I couldn’t help but pick one shade myself. I bought the shade Pink Topaz 006 and I will be reviewing it here.
This is how Colorbar describes Heavy Metal nail polish
Sparkle like a gemstone wherever you go! Embrace the richness of deep and heavy pearl toned shades that add character to your nails and give that heavy metal effect. The shades reflect the personality of the popular gemstones hand-picked to suit Indian skin types. The stark contrast of the shades against your nails make them look attractive instantly and they look like beautiful gemstones. The formula is intense yet fast-drying with deep intensity of self-pearls and high shine. In just a single stroke your nails are enveloped in irresistible and trend-setting metal shades of the future. What’s more is that the formula has an excellent drying time along with being 3-free, long-lasting, non-yellowing and chip-resistant.
Price: Rs 300 for 9 ml
Colorbar Heavy Metal nail polish comes in a rectangular bottle with shade name sticker on top of the cap.The cap has a colorful wavy art design which is signature to this range. The brush is decent and picks enough nail polish for one stroke application.
Pink Topaz 006 is a beautiful deep onion pink color with pearl finish. This polish is sheer in one coat and it takes 3-4 coats to build to full opacity. Pearl finish nail polish tend to be streaky, but this one is not at all streaky. This nail polish is fast drying, so you do not have to wait much between the coats. The staying power of this nail polish is good. I did not see any tip wear for 3 days and chipping started only after 5 days.
Even though I picked one color (for now ;)), the other shades worth checking out are : Emerald Heights (emerald color), Chrome Sapphire (Yellowish gold) and Garnet mist (maroonish-brown).
This nail polish looks more pink in some of the swatches above, but it is more deep and purplish pink in color
Heavy Metal range by Colorbar consists of beautiful deep colors with pearl finish. Pink Topaz 006 is a deep onion pink color with beautiful pearl finish. This nail polish is fast drying and fairly long lasting. Even though the consistency is sheer, the color is buildable in 3-4 coats. Only thing is, it could have been a little cheaper. The quantity is same as the Colorbar Exclusive nail polish range, only they have introduced new colors. Other than that, the formula and color is excellent. I will probably purchase more colors of this range
It has been a long time since I last posted a nail art, and so here I am posting a nail art which has been sitting quietly for many many months in a forgotten folder somewhere in my computer. (Eeeeee!)
This was supposed to be a color block nail art of pink and yellow, but then I added a zig zag line (just like that) with a nail art pen.
My nail art pen went gloopy, that is why there are random black lines here and there
See my other super easy color-block nail art HERE & HERE
Hope you like it 🙂
Maybelline launched Gold Digger Collection in their Colorshow nail polish a while back. I will be reviewing a few of their shades in a series of posts. I had reviewed a beautiful top coat from this range- Bling Thing 902 earlier and here I am reviewing a gorgeous silvery gold color from this range ~ Oh-My-Gold! 904.
Price: Rs 145
Oh-My-Gold 904 is silvery gold nail polish with gold specks and glitter. The golden glitter and specks get masked by the silvery polish which gives a muted shimmer effect to the whole look, which I love! This is a metallic nail polish, which is neither silver nor golden, but somewhere in between.
One coat is opaque enough, but I apply 2 coats anyways. It dries fairly quick.
The glitter and golden specks are not too out there and gives a beautiful diffused shine.
The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottlewith black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks enough nailpolish for one coat. The glitter in this nailpolish 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.
I am right handed, so my polishes start to chip early on my right hand. I could see minor tip wear from this polish starting next day on my right hand (which happens with almost ALL the nailpolishes) and proper chipping in 4 days. But nail polish on my left hand stayed put for 5 days (!), and so I am impressed with the staying power of this polish.
Oh My God 904 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
Overall, Oh-My-Gold 904 is a beautiful silvery-gold color with muted shimmer and specks which gives a beautiful overall diffused shine. If you wear metallic colors like silver and gold, do check this one out. I love this shade and will definitely repurchase it.
