Colorbar Nail Paint-- Blue Lagoon NOTD

I have never been a manicure girl. The chief reason, during my school days I could not wear them and later, I find nail paints are difficult to maintain and I hate chipped nail polish. but recently, since in my opinion, my makeup stash is overflowing, I turned to nail paints. Remember the little Colorbar Haul I had made ages ago? recently, I got time enough to wear the pastel blue from that purchase. Well, I never wore a Color like this, usually because I feel I'm too old to wear this kind of color. You can suggest me if it's ok. This is the first time I wore a Colorbar Nail paint and here is my opinion

The shade is Blue Lagoon. I actually fell in love with the name.

Ok, these days I'm lazy to watermark my image, but thieves, don't steal this, I would find out.

Price and Quantity: 150 INR for 9ml

My experience:

I am not really good at wearing nail paints, so whatever quality nail paint I use, it goes over streaky. This time, it was no exception. I wore the first coat and it looked uneven and streaky. The color looked translucent. I wore a second coat, it looked better, but still I was not happy with the opacity.  After it dired, I out on a third coat and this time I was happy or rather happier.

See the streaky application.

So, what I liked:
1) The bottle looks quite good and classy. the brush that comes is not bad.
2) The color range is amazing. I so fell in pastel shades from this range.
3) Most importantly, it dries pretty fast, although I don't remember any such claims.
4) it has started chipping only from the fourth day.
Well, these are enough reasons to call this a good nail paint.

What I disliked:
1) Whereas most brands come at a low price, I don't see the point in spending 150 INR for a nail paint and that too, for the same quantity.. IMO, it's pricier than average brands.
2) I am not happy with the opacity. You need several coats to get the effect of the color in the bottle.
3) The should have been a bit superior.

What do you think about these? Do you have any shade from this brand?

    @ Indgal: Thank you. Hheeheh. I was so skeptic! henceforth I'll wear the craziest colors!!
    rids: Thank you
    @ bhumika: This is the first time I'm having much fun by wearing a nail color. Nooooo, it's very streaky. So many coats made it indiscernible.
    @ Pooja G : Lol!! You made my day!!
    @ Vanity: Joining a language class and meeting the classmates most of whom are younger than me is giving me complexes :P
    @ Phhokie: I agree. Even I don't think I'll spend so much even on the craziest color I want. But I had received quite a few freebies. So, it ultimately became cost effective.
    Thanks for appreciating my nails. Actually I do nothing. But by default I include much protein in my food. May be it's the gene because believe me, my father and I have the same hands!!

  14. @ Miss Pretty: Nice to know. Even I got greencard discount and freebies as well. That's the precise reason I got this :P
    @ Kejal: Good to know I'm not the sole one complaining :P
    @ Tanvee: Actually it wont even if you have short nails. When my nail paints start chipping and I have no time clean up and do it again, I just cut my nails short :p. It's not bad at all. trust me. Only looks like the hands of a teenager . LOl
    @ Harshleen: Thanks girl for the kind words. :)
    @ Rekha: Thank you. yes, suddenly I'm in the mood of funky nail colors.
    @Megha: I wish I had her as my friend too :P
