Hi IMBB beauties,
Hope your are doing great today. In my last NOTD post I told you that I stick with safe nail colors and yet to try bright funky ones.
I’m so happy today that I bought my first bright shade from Colorbar and I’m enjoying it to the fullest
I found the Colorbar counter in Big Bazaar and wanted to try their i-glide pencil in black. Unfortunately they were running out of stock and they had only Prunelle and Gold. The SA applied Prunelle on my upper lashline and it did not show up that much on my darker eyelids 🙁
Then I saw the blush and asked her if they have all shades. She said they have only one shade :(( . I so wanted to buy something from Colorbar but did not find what I wanted.
I was so upset that I cudn’t find anything from colorbar. Suddenly saw the lovely array of funky nail colors on the shelf and my eyes poped out.
A long time back Rati posted about 6 new shades added to Colorbar nail lacquer. Below are those shades.
Orange – No 1 Mimosa
Yellow – No 2 Lemon Drop
Pink – No 3 Rasmopolitan
Purple – No 4 Grapesangria
Green – No 6 Apple martini
Light Blue – No 5 Blue lagoon
I swatched all of them at the counter expect the Yellow one. I loved them all. I so wanted to buy all shades but decided to pick just one as the I’m new to bright shade and the price was 150 🙁 . It was really tough for me to choose one from the lot. So I asked for my cousin’s suggestion who accompanied me. She told me Purple looks good. Even the SA told me that Purple is the fast moving shade and they always run out of stock. Do I need more reasons to pick that shade 😀
I couldn’t wait to get home to remove the shade I already had on my nails and try this one. The consistency of the nail color was thinner than other brand nail colors I tried and when I applied the first coat it was not that opaque. I applied second coat and hurrayyyy it looked so opaque and flawless :yahoo: :yahoo: . It was not at all streaky.
I applied it to my toe nails as well. It instantly brightened up my hands and legs :manicure: . I so love this shade. I feel so happy that my first purchase from colorbar which is also my first bright shade turned out to be very good :jiggy1: :jiggy1:
Now coming to the staying part, it goes on really shiny when applied and the shine reduces a lil bit after 3 days (not completely though). It stayed put on my nails for 4 days and then started chipping.
Pros of Colorbar Nail Lacquer
Cons of Colorbar Nail Lacquer
1. PRICE. 150 for a nail color is too much :-/ . I wish they could sell it for a lil less so that everyone can try more shades .
2. As the days pass by, some minute scratches appear on the nail, which will not be obvious unless taken a closer look (I guess I’m too much excited about using bright shade for first time and observing my nails to much :toothygrin: )
Other than that I don’t have anything to complain about this product. I’m enjoying every bit of it.
Rating : 4/5 (-1 for the price)
Will I buy again : YES. I liked the quality of the Colorbar nail paint. I wanted to try more fun shades now.
Will I recommend to others : I know, no one needs a recommendation to buy Colorbar nail paints now. But I do insist everyone to at least try one of their fun shades. I’m sure you’ll love it :haanji:
Byeeee… :puchhi: :puchhi:
