Elle 18 Color Bomb Nail Polish No. 7 Review and NOTD
I’m gonna review my first Elle 18 color Bomb Nail polish in Shade No.7 (in fact my overall first color bomb product).
I never had an idea of picking any Elle 18 products off late. I have used their nail paints and lipsticks when I was in college. Also, their color bomb range seemed to target teen gals more. So, I always relate that brand as a college gals brand :tongue: .
I was doing some toy shopping for my nephew in some random fancy store and was waiting for the shopkeeper to give me the change. There I saw 2 (only 2 ) Elle 18 color bomb nail paints lying in a container. One was a very glittery shade and other was the No. 7 shade, which was a decent-looking pink. It looked so nice in the bottle that I had to pick it up!! (the shopkeeper told me not to swatch as it was not a tester and he didn’t have one :-/ ). That’s how I picked my first Elle 18 color bomb :announce:
Price: Rs.45 for 5 ml.
Lemme try to explain the shade better. It’s neither a bright pink nor a baby pink. It’s between nude shade and pink shade. You can even call it as a dirty nude pink :dumb:
When I applied it on my nails, it made them look fresh and nice. Guess what ? I feel so much comfortable with this shade that I have applied this second time in a row :jiggy2:
The swatch photo below is as close to the real one:
But, when I took the bottle to apply for the second time, I saw a layer of liquid separated on top. After shaking the bottle, it became okay, can’t expect more from a cheap product like this :nono:. Can you see what I’m trying to say in below picture.
Also, I liked the concept of smaller quantity (5ml) than other brands which are usually 8ml. That way, I can finish up the nail paint pretty fast and don’t have to store it for long time until it gets dried. In case if I like a shade so much, I can always go ahead and buy another bottle of it after finishing it up. Also, the cheaper price would give us freedom to try so many more shades :haanji:
Lets see the pro’s and con’s.
Pros of Elle 18 Color Bomb Nail Polish No. 7:
1. Cute packaging.
2. Consistency of the nail paint was neither too runny nor too thick, perfect to glide on without much effort.
3. Two coats of it gave a complete opaque and medium glossy finish.
4. Each coat took about less than a minute to dry.
5. Came with a decent brush.
6. Affordable price and quantity of 5 ml is a pro for me.
7. With 2 coats it stayed for 4-5 days without chipping.
Cons of Elle 18 Color Bomb Nail Polish No. 7:
The separation of the liquid when left idle for a long time :yuck:
Other than that, I don’t have any other complaints.
4.5/5 (-.5 for the liquid separation).
Overall Verdict :
This is a very good nail polish and very easy on the pocket for nail polish junkies like me. They have so much fun shades and I’m gonna try most of them :jog: :jog:
