Maybelline Coloroma- Rubi
For long I’ve been looking for this blood red that is not too on-the-face or borders on maroon and I guess Rubi is the gem of my calling!
Priced at Rs.79 for 8ml in a thin pear shaped bottle, Maybelline Coloroma Nail colors are a Steal. The shades are pretty like-able easily too.
Some others I have on me are Brillo (the transparent basic one), Cafe Latte (color is exactly what it says – it look like a latte in matte – my HG for formal nails), Dusty Rose (matte burgundish brown – my other HG for casual dark nails), Glacial (glossy light pink – if you want to be the sweet nice lady of the house) and Silver Sand (shiny buff shaded grey – for those slightly ‘different’ moods)
Given that I had picked Rubi just by looking at it I was very happy how it turned out.
As all coloromas the consistency is medium and not too runny; the brush is fair and if you can pick just the right amount and apply it flat on the nails it works well.
Seen here is me wearing a double coat of Rubi (on my rather-bony-wrinkly fingers ;))
These are in broad daylight – sunlight in fact. If you notice the third picture of the bottle, the shadow can be seen. So dark is as good during day as is for night.
I think this is one red that will easily go on all Indian skin tones. What more it would compliment all our Indian ensembles perfectly well as it does the western outfits too.

- The Bottle (easy-to-store-stack in my refrig)
Removal – The first removal (use Lakme nail color remover with vit E) colors your finger all around the nails; second makes it better; its the third time its taken off fully.
Sometimes a triple coat may help bring out this color better.
Buy again? – Yes, for the color
Go on, its worth a try without making you guilty if you don’t really like it for more than one or two uses 😉
