Maybelline Colorama Astral and Konad Special Polish NOTD and Review

I'm having Monday blues again :( sigh! It is as it is so hard to start work after a 2 day break..and even tougher when you got a long weekend (Fri+Sat+Sun).

So what did I do to cheer myself up? Make a delicious meal for myself and try some more nail art! :D

I made wraps today! Wish I had clicked them and showed you! They were YUM!
But I was so hungry by the time they were ready that I just gobbled them down *blush*

And coming back to my next favorite activity (the first being eating!), I decided to dress up my nails a bit! :)
This time I chose my all-time favorite polish - Maybelline Colorama Nail Enamel in 'Astral'.
It is an adorable baby pink color which makes your hands look so delicate and pretty!

The consistency of this polish is a little runny and I need a good 3 coats for the color to really show. But it has a smooth finish and is not streaky and that is one thing I love about the Maybelline Colorama nail polishes.

My experience with Maybelline Colorama Astral

I own quite a few shades from this collection and Astral is my favorite out of all of them! It is the most wearable, universal and pretty pink! It is more of a nude pink I guess.. It has a good brush handle which enables a good grip. The brush is smooth and allows for smooth and  easy application.
The polish consistency itself is a little runny but dries to a smooth, non-streaky finish which I love.
Again it may sound weird, but this is another shade in my collection which I feel makes my hands and feet glow! :D

Whether you want to wear it to office or otherwise for a neat, polishes look, this is THE color to have! Moreover, it is quick drying which is 1 thing I love because I am a little hyper and cannot sit around for hours waiting for my polish to dry!
I do feel that it doesn't really stick to its promise of staying over 5 days without chipping. I use a top coat on this to lock in the color and shine and still it starts chipping after the 3rd day!

To add an extra dimension, I used my Konad nail stamping plate m2 and used the Konad special polish in the shade 'White Pearl' for the first time. (I used normal polishes for my previous nail art posts) here and here.
Honestly, I think they looked way better than this Konad Polish!

I did quite a bit of research online and saw many videos on youtube. Based on that I could see that Konad's special nail polishes do stamp better than the regular polish.
But in this case, I was honestly very disappointed. It was as good as my regular polish and now I feel like a fool for buying a basic white polish for 150 bucks! I also bought Konad special polish in Silver and Black Pearl and am yet to try them out! 
Have you guys had the same experience with Konad? Or is it just my polish?! Lemme know! :(

Below are the pictures I took with Maybelline Colorama Astral and Konad Special Stamping Polish White Pearl. I used 3 coats and still my nails are visible!

  7. I own Maybelline Colorama too and I agree with you, they chip after three days! The color you used is so nice! perfect for bridal nails. looks so feminine. Regular nail polish works well with stamping. I wouldn't waste my money for Konad polishes. They're too pricey! Btw, I'm a new follower. Hope you can follow back :)
