Elle 18 Color Bomb Nail Polishes ~ 30, 17 and 23 ~ Photos, Review and Swatches

These small little bombs are so cute!!!! 
I wanted to try them for so long but I was not getting the full range of shades at my place,,so finally when they re-stocked this range I went and picked up these 3 shades :

23 ~ baby pink n silver with very fine glitters

They are very inexpensive and comes only in the 5ml packaging which is nice,


Following are the 3 shades ~

1) shade 30 ~ a very pretty berry shade which needs atleast 3 coats for the shade to be even on the nails, it is very think but not completely transulecent.

2) shade 17 ~ a pretty bronzy-pinkish shade that needs around 2 coats to look even on the nails, it shimmers a bit but not too much

3) shade 23 ~ is a baby pink+silver shade that is so damn cute!!!! very soft baby pink with the silver providing the necessary shimmering effect in it, you will need atleast 3 coats to make the color show itself on your nails

Elle 18 color bombs are in my opinion very nice for girls who want to experiment with colors they don't buy every now or then because not only they are cheap but also their quality is pretty decent,,good for nail art lovers if they can find bold shades in this range.

The quality is not very nice, it is just ok . On my nails it did not chip for around 3 days,,after which it all started. The brush is not nice,,it is small which makes the application difficult.

The packaging is nice  because of the graphics on the bottle and the shape of it.

Elle 18 could have actually paid attention to the quality rather than the publicity,,but still they are nice for one time usage, I don't see myself buying any other shade from this range at least .

Qauntity ~ 5 ml


Price ~ 45 INR

Recommendation : please skip these,,as there are way better brands available in the market which are very affordable. Buy these if you are a nail art fanatic and you are lucky enough to find a bold shade for nail art in this range.

Thanks

  3. I like the color bombs have three of them all in deep berry red and mauve shades. The quality is decent but they have increased the price to around rs.50. what a bummer!!! still worth it i guess
