Today’s post is a review on few Colorlife nail paints and Elle18 one too that I picked up some time before from Urbantouch!

You can read about my nail paints haul here: http://healthnbeauty-hnb.blogspot.com/2012/02/my-nail-paint-haul.html

I too wanted to get all set for some great fun today! So thought of trying out these paints on my nails today – which could also serve as a post for HnB… πŸ™‚

Colorlife and Elle 18 dont give names to their paints.. so I have given them names from my creative best! πŸ™‚

Lets see each of the shades one by one…

1. Colorlife Nail Paint in Shade # 253

I call it Grenade Green.

This is a healthy, leaf green and two coats give the desired shade. Suits well both in the hands and the toes.

One may not like it immediately upon application, cozΒ the real colour doesn’t show up. Once it dries up, it looks much better and shiny. See swatch below.

2. Colorlife Nail Paint in Shade # 231

I call it Bubbly Purple.

 

This is a dual tone shade – a mix of purple and pink. Too very light on the nails. Even after two coatings its barely seen on the nails but has a good sheen . It did look better in the sunlight though.

Duskier tones might like the warm shade but fairer ones will for surely hate this. I am wheatish and I have mixed feelings for this – more hate than like.. πŸ™‚

 

3. Colorlife Nail Paint in Shade # 223

I call it Pink Paws.

 

It looks bright in the container but is a very soft pink. Simple and cute pink – there it ends!

4. Colorlife Nail Paint in Shade # 259

I call it Bang on Blue.

 

It turned out to be more bang than blue (lolz..) – its more of a purplish shade though it looks blue in the container. I was expecting some bright blue shade when I placed the order.

Simple lavender shade with medium sheen. See swatch below.

5. Elle 18 Nail Paint in Shade # 51

I call it Blush Me Pink.

Now thats wat I call saving the best for the last. I am totally in love with this shade. Its a neonish pink with shades of orange too. Looks equally beautiful on fingers and the toes. See swatch below.

A sexy, girly shade in all! πŸ™‚

All Colorlife nail paints are for INR 25 and Elle 18 is priced at INR 50.

This is how it looks on me:

Colorlife:

I am really not satisfied with Colorlife brand – more importantly on the pigmentation front. What you see is not what you get in this case.

But I am happy that I have not wasted much money on this purchase. And I am all set to gift these Colorlife nail paints now… πŸ™‚

Elle 18 –Β I believe its a steal!

Pros:

  • Beautiful shade
  • Cute packaging
  • Nice pigmentation
  • Decent quantity for the price

Repurchase? Elle18 – You bet! Colorlife – Not even for my enemy! πŸ™‚

Recommend? Read the above statement once more πŸ˜€

Love,
