Colorbar Luxe Nail Lacquer ~ Heroine : Review, Swatch

 

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 fainbrown 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.

Chevron Accent Nails

Hello girlies,

It has been a long time since I last posted a nail art. I have been a bit lazy, thats all. Now, I was not a huge fan of Accent nails but decided, Eh! I might as well try. And, after this nail art, I have pretty much started liking accent nails. It looks pretty. Takes much less time (1 nail vs 10 nails).

So, accent nails are basically when you paint one of your nails differently from the rest. It can be any nail. I chose the ring finger.

I chose to draw a  chevron sign for accent nail.

First I decided to use a scotch-tape. But the final result was not symmetrical.

So, I had to touch up and redo the design  free hand.

Accent nails are comparatively easier and best for the times you are running late. Plus when they prettify the nails well, who’s to complain? 🙂

 Happy painting!

Love,

Blossom 🙂

Polka dot nails

Hello lovelies

Today I bring to you a very simple and classic nail art- ze Polka Dots…

 

How to do it– Its super simple. Paint your nails with color of your choice and dot with a contrasting color using a dotting tool or the back of a toothpick. 😀

I used neither and dotted free hand using the nail polish brush itself.

 

This color combination gives it a retro look..don’t you think?

You can paint all nails with one color or alternate with two like I have done.

Polka dots look good on both long as well as short nails, but I think it looks cuter on short nails.. don’t you think so? 😀

Hope you find it useful.

Love,

Blossom 🙂
