This is my first nail paint review on IMBB. I’ll be reviewing 5 nail paints from Elle 18 nail pops range. Elle 18 has always been more famous among us youngsters, especially college going girls. Elle 18 introduces everything in fun shades to suit the taste of playful young girls. I picked up this 5 inexpensive nail paints from a local store.
I’m not into shimmer nail paints much and most of the nail paints in that store had a shimmery finish, and therefore I picked up these 5 paints which aren’t much shimmery; well, one of which is transparent too 😛 Nail pop range doesn’t have names for this cute-looking nail paints, they are all numbered. Personally, this fact doesn’t matter much because it’s the color we look at when picking up nail paints from the stash, rather than the codes and names. So it’s all fine with me.
Product description (from the website):
With so many shades to choose from, there’s one for every mood and occasion. Dazzling reds to pretty pinks, electric blues, pastel mauves and tangy oranges.
Price and quantity: INR 60 for each nail paint of 5 ml.
Shelf life: 36 months from packed date.
These nail paints come across in cute round pots with black screw cap on which has the picture of the Elle 18 girl logo. The bottles are of glass yet they are sturdy enough to survive travelling. They take around a minute to dry which is normal. The application brush is of nice quality as against the price charged. The color glides on easily with the brush. In most of the shades one coat may do, but I prefer double coats for all my nail paints.
The nail paints are pigmented enough and have a fine texture. The paint is neither very thick nor too runny. Shaking the bottle well before application is the trick here; otherwise the oily runny part of the content will be picked up. They last pretty well and I happy with what I got for the price I paid.
Let’s see how each shade looks individually:
Shade no. 27: I don’t think this shade needs my description. It’s a crystal clear shade. It can be used alone or as a base. I ran out of my transparent nail paints and therefore decided to buy this one along with the colorful lot.
Shade no. 83: It’s a girly peach like color. It isn’t too loud or anything neither is it very bright. This is a non-shimmery shade and looks very decent and subtle. I prefer it for everyday wear.
Shade no. 45: I’m not sure what this shade looks like, but the shade is one of the prettiest shades that I own. It has a shimmery finish and the color is between pink and mauve.
Shade no. 41: This is a beautiful bridal red color. I have bought this for my mother as she likes such red-maroon kind of nail paints. I’m more of a bright red lover but I must say that this shade is sexy.
Shade no. 42: This is my favorite amongst my recent purchase. It’s in wine color. I find this shade to be very feminine and sensuous. It comes with plum undertones and will suit all skin tones.
