Hello girls! As I promised, here is the review of another gorgeous shade from Elle 18’s nail pops collection. This time it is shade number 65 and this is a lovely blue nail polish. So let us get into the review :)
Rs 50 for 5 ml
I’ve already said in my last review of these nail paints that I love the packaging :D It is sturdy (I did manage to drop this particular bottle and it didn’t break! Thumbs up!) and different.
This shade from Elle 18 is one of the most perfect blues I’ve seen in a nail polish. It’s not too light, so it won’t make your hands look dark. It’s not too dark; so that it looks almost black from some angles (I HATE it when nail polishes do that! I may as well have bought black then na?!) It’s just right! Like goldilocks’ bed lol! It is a slightly muted shade of blue, as you can see in the photos. I think it’s perfect for spring and summer!
I’d recommend a clear top coat over this to really make the colour pop. The photos show 2 coats of the nail polish on my nails. I think this colour would look great on the toenails too. I love blue nail polish on toes!
One of the issues I have with this nail polish range is that I wish Elle 18 had named the shades. I’ve never been a fan of just numbers to identify shades, whether it’s in lipsticks or nail polishes or any cosmetic product actually.
- Lovely summer colour
- Colour stays true
- Does not chip for a good 2-3 days
- Formula becomes thicker over time
Rating: 4/5 (-1 for the formula)
This gorgeous shade from Elle 18 nail pops should be in your stash, it’s a summer must-have! I also think it’s a lovely summer-to-monsoon transition shade.
I do admit that, at 50 bucks a polish, these are like use (5-6 times) and throw. But I am happy with that, given all the pros. This range has a lot to offer and I think every girl should pick up at least a few shades from it :) It has a variety of shades from subtle (like Elle 18 Nail Color 06 which I’ve reviewed previously) to bright and summery (like this one!) and also it has some glittery nail polishes! If you are willing to compromise a bit on the formula, I’d say go ahead and take your pick!
