Colorbar Nail Paint Exclusive 56 - Review & NOTD

I love glitter nail paints. I love how they shine & shimmer. I love how they stay on for really long. And I also have a fascination for black based shimmer nail paints. So there is no way I could have walked away from the counter without this nail paint. I don't know why this is called "Exclusive" though, I'm not sure if this is LE.

Price: Rs 150 for 9 ml bottle.

What I liked:

1. This is based based golden shimmer nail paint. On the nails, the black forms a very light base, dark enough to accentuate the golden shimmer & light enough to get the shimmer take center stage.

 2. The formula itself is thin and therefore I find it easy to work with. I don't like polishes that are too thick as I always mess up the application. The first coat goes on sheer, but it is very build-able  I'm wearing three coats in the pictures + a clear top coat. The glitter is densely packed in the formula & you will get very good coverage in 2-3 coats without your nail feeling heavy & suffocated.

3. My maid has been absconding, which means I have been washing utensils myself. I was sure this would come off after one session of washing. But it has stayed on. It faded very little bit along the tips - very little. But on the whole it didn't chip, dull down or wear off.

4. The brush is pretty decent. Nothing exciting, but nothing bad either.

5. It is a neutral shade, I think it'll pretty much look good on everyone with everything.

6. The shimmer / glitter is very, very fine and doesn't feel gritty or heavy on the nail.

What could be better: 
1. The price? Y U NO make economical products anymore Colorbar? Y U try to ape Inglot? Y NO name?

Overall: I'm very fond of gold & silver shimmer / glitter nail paints. So I really like this one as well. If you are into glitter nail paints then you will enjoy this. 


  1. I love the color and the overdose of shimmer...Colorbar is hiking their prices like anything the new nail paints in the OPI lookalike bottles are so so expensive

  2. I also like colorbar nail paints.. they give nice finish and staying power is good.

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
