Colorbar Hard As Nails and Maybelline Colorama Nailpaints Overview
This post is my entry for the 500 Post Giveaway and I thought rather than doing some random product review, why not do a post about something which is very special to me and that has been possible thanks to IMBB. This post is also my way of saying thanks to Rati for this awesome platform she has provided to us not only for sharing our common liking for beauty and makeup but also adding a bit of a humor in our everyday life.
Many of you might have read some of my comments on IMBB cribbing about my brittle nails . 🙂
I have extremely brittle nails that refuse to grown beyond a certain limit and stay put there. To be very frank, I used to bite my nails until some years back and maybe that’s wht made my nails so brittle. But even after completely stopping that, my nails would just break or chip into 2 after growing to a certain extent. I would also joke to my friends saying they are scared to grow now, they feel I will start eating them again….
I tried using olive oil etc on my nails but that too didn’t seem to work. Because of this, I never really felt like even purchasing nail paints (not that I didn’t) because even the prettiest of colors wouldn’t look so nice on my nails . 🙁
Then came Neha’s post on Colorbar Nail Treatment Hard As Nails and after reading that I was extremely happy that maybe now my problem maybe solved. So the immediate weekend I rushed to the beauty store to get the Colorbar nail hardner but to my utter disappointment, it was out of stock. I went back again after 2 weeks (that’s when I was told stocks would arrive) but this time too it wasn’t available. But the SA showed me the colorbar nail repair which also seemed to harden brittle nails and help grow. So I purchased that with high hopes of getting some decently beautiful nails.
Did the Nail Repair work?? Lets see the pictures below…
Peals be ready for some not-so-pretty pictures
This is a pic of my nails on the day I got the Nail Repair. Can you see how small my nails are . 🙁
And my nails now…after almost 4-5 weeks !!!
I know many of you might be thinking that my nails are much more longer than this!! Why is she excited about these nails!! But if you see my nails above then they have come a long way!! :))
So now that my nails are in pretty decent condition, I thought of sharing with you some Maybelline Colorama Nail Paints I own.
I am not very neat at applying nail paints so apologies for that ( any tips??) ….I am thinking of getting the Oriflame corrector soon, since I would be using more nail paints now . 🙂
Dusky : This is a non-shimmery brown shade. Not really a nude color but a very soft color with glossy finish. A very nice pick for office wear.
Silver Almond : This is a pure silver color. Gives a glossy finish.
Crystal Clear : As the name says, this is just a clear nail paint…no shimmer or glitter.
Chic : It is a deep pink color with glossy finish. I don’t really like bold color nail paints. I basically bought this for my mom..this shade suits her a lot but just thought of trying on my hands as well.
Starlight : This is a shimmery brown color. Loving this shade a lot!!
The have increased the quantity and price of the nail paints from the last time I bought. As you can see, Dusky, Silver Almond and Crystal are 7.5 ml. Chic and Starlight are 8 ml.
The older ones i.e Dusky, Silver Almond and Crystal Clear costed me Rs. 65. Chic and Starlight costed me Rs. 79.
I hope this didn’t sound like a rant post and you guys enjoyed atleast having a look at the nail shades!!
P.S A very very special thanks to Neha for her post on the Colorbar Nail Hardner. I wouldn’t have bought the Colorbar Nail Repair had it not been for her post and would have still been cribbing about my nails. These days I just keep looking at my nails every few hrs and keep adoring them . 🙂
Though I like nail paints but I never really shopped for them with keen interest since my nails would not do justice to even the prettiest of colors…but now nail paints are on high priority on my list !! Bought 1 from colorbar with the nail repair and am soon gonna buy some more….want to try colors like blue etc now
P.P.S : I wish that Rati would announce the 1000 Post Giveway pretty soon!!
