I’ll be reviewing the Colorbar Nail Lacquer Pro in the shade Mauve Like Me. As you might recall, I had shown this nail paint in one of my shopping haul posts last month. Since then I’ve been trying to review this for guys but I’ve been facing some trouble with its photographs. Anyway, I thought of finally going ahead with the review so keep reading what I like about it and what I don’t.
Get the perfect salon finish for your nails with Colorbar PRO Nail Lacquer; it’s double patented technology gives long lasting wear with magnified shine and nourishing care. This 15ml Nail Lacquer bottle comes with a superior quality flat brush that promises easy and streak free application.
Rs 400 for 15mL
The product comes in a regular glass bottle with a matte finish black top. The brush inside is round with a flat edge, again a pretty regular one, but it seems to do its job well. The nail paint spreads pretty evenly and gives a streak-free finish. Unevenness if any, quickly gets lost because of the flowy texture of the nail paint. It goes on sheer in one coat and to get an opaque finish, you will need about 2-3 coats. The finish you get is ultra glossy and it retains that for the next 2-3 days. The drying time is very impressive and the nail paint dries in less than a minute.
As I told you guys above, I was having a hard time with the pictures of this product. That is because the exact shade of this nail paint is a little hard to catch on camera in most lightings. The closest I got to are the pictures you see above. But thankfully, the nail swatches are quite true to the actual shade. It is a dark mauve shade with grey undertones. The shade looks so beautiful even in the bottle that as soon as I saw this in the store, I knew I’d love it. And I was right! Its a very beautiful neutral shade that you can wear with a lot of different dresses. I personally don’t like wearing very bright shades on my nails so this shade is one of my most adored ones!
The only area it lacks in is the staying power. You can start seeing some chipping around the edges in about 2-3 days and you will have to change or reapply it in about 4-5 days. I personally don’t like the look of chipped nail paint so it is a a little high-maintenance for me to change my nail color in 2-3 days.
Colorbar Nail Lacquer Pro- Mauve Like Me is beautiful dark mauve nail paint with grey undertones that makes a perfect neutral to wear on your nails. It looks gorgeous freshly applied but the low staying power is disappointing, especially considering the price. Apart from that, the formula and the high glossy finish are amazing!
