Nails of The Week :) Elle 18 nail pops No. 68: Review,Swatches,NOTW

We can never have enough nail paints..Can We?
Well this is my first brush with Elle 18 Nail Pops and I must say...or maybe I'll say later :P
Brand Info:
Elle 18 is a color cosmetics range launched in 1998. Elle 18 Color Bombs is an exciting and funky range of color cosmetics and has been designed for young trendy girls. The range designed in cool shapes has explosively vibrant colors for lips, nails and eyes. The products are packed with the goodness of Cocoa butter, Jojoba Oil, Rose Water and Almonds.

Product Info:
Elle 18 presents funky, youthful nail colors in explosive shades.

Price Vs. Quantity: INR 50/ 5ml

Packaging:
Elle 18 nail pops come in a small round bottle. They occupy unnecessary space in my stash because of their round shape. The brush is too small for comfort.

Shade:
No.58 is a deep ash grey shade that looks gorgeous.

My Take:
As said earlier,this is my first Elle 18 nail paint. Though I'm not happy with the packaging,I can't say the same about the formula. It has the right consistency. Doesn't take an hour to get dry and the staying power is decent too. Mine did not chip for 4-5 days without a top coat. But the brush is too small for comfortable application and is screechy too.
 
My Likes:
1. Has an array of shades to choose from.
2. Did not take too long to dry.
3. Did not chip for 4-5 days.
4. Easy on pocket.
5. Easily available....everywhere!!!

My Dislikes:
1. Round bottle occupies unnecessary space in stash.
2. Brush too small for comfort.
3. Brush quality wasn't good.
4. I wish they had shade names instead of numbers.

Last Word:
Elle 18 nail pops are good for the price but I would still prefer street wear colour rich nail enamel for the same price!

Repurchase: 
Not the same shade!

Over All Rating: 3.5/5
