Maybelline Colorama in Bale Classico: Review,Swatches and NOTD

I always like alternating my nail paint shades...like I need a bright fuschia post a grey nail paint...and then the fuschia is followed by a nude enamel.
Lets see how this beige nude nail paint by Maybelline fares:
Company Claims:
Glossy, chip resistant nail color in vibrant color.Maybelline Colorama Nail Color offers high-gloss nail color with over 5 days wear without chipping. It combines a visually stunning palette of pigments, pearls and glitters. It’s the ultimate accessory that transforms your look from day to night, fun to funky and classic to daring in a flash.

Price Vs. Quantity: INR 100/ 8ml

Packaging:
Maybelline Colorama in Bale Classico comes in a flat oblong glass bottle with a white cap.As the cap is quite long,it makes the application of the nail paint super convenient.The applicator brush has non-screechy soft bristles which allow smooth application.

Shade:
Bale Classico is a nude beige shade..Its very true to skin and that is why it works wonderfully well in french manicures.. Its Classico for sure ;)

My Take:
This is one shade I like to wear all the time. Its nude,its classy and it goes with everything you wear. If like me you are also a fan of French Manicures,apply Bale Classico as your base coat and paint your tips white and your nails would look amazing. The long cap makes the grip and application very very convenient.I guess this is what I liked most about Maybelline Colorama.The brush/applicator was nice gave smooth swipes.The colour shows up properly in two swipes (one swipe is not opaque enough). The staying power is nothing to go gaga about. Without a top coat it won't survive on me for even 3days.

My Likes:
1. The applicator/brush is easy to hold.
2. Beautiful,soft nude shade.
3. The bottle consumes less space because of its shape.
4. Did not take huge time in drying (could be because of the top coat).
5. The brush gives nice finish (not screechy at all).
6. Pocket-friendly so collecting different colours would be fun.
7. Works great with French Manicures.

My Dislikes:
The staying power isn't that awesome.Started chipping the third day :(

Last Word: 
I absolutely love the shade. Even the formula for the price isn't bad!

Repurchase:
Till Eternity...............

Over All Rating: 4/5

P.S. In the above pics I have 3 coats of Bale Classico followed with a top coat.
