The metallic trend that was all the rage in 2016 is here to stay this year as well, and I am not complaining. With tonnes of metallic shades to choose from, be it rose gold, silver, tungsten or even a metallic purple, I still place my bets on the classic gold.
Gold not only looks classy, it also complements a lot of different looks and outfits. My favorite way to wear gold is on my nails, these nails take me from a soft peach dress in the day to a little black number at night. I also feel that gold looks particularly beautiful on medium to dusky skin tone and highlights a holiday tan perfectly.
On my nails today, I am wearing my beloved Colorbar Metallic Nail Lacquer in 011 Treasure. This is a slightly muted gold without any over the top yellow undertones, which makes it more wearable on a daily basis. It is a gold metallic lacquer, with tiny micro shimmers in the same color that catch the light beautifully adding a more posh look to your nails.
The formula is quite liquidy and glides smoothly on the nails; each coat takes around 7-8 minutes to dry completely. For a completely opaque metallic look, I usually need 2-3 coats. The brush is the old school thin variety which aides with precise application.
The staying power of this polish is quite good and it does not chip on me for a good 5 days, the color, however, dulls a little after 3 days to a more silvery gold. I love the fact that it does not contain any chunky glitter which makes the polish more elegant and also easy to remove without needing to rub vigorously with acetone.
Colorbar Metallic Nail Lacquers are available at a reasonable price of INR 250 for a 9 ml bottle, which I believe is great value for money. I would highly recommend this nail paint to all girls on the hunt for gorgeous golden nails.
