Colorbar Nail Lacquer in Lemon Drop â€“ Review & NOTD
Iâ€™ve never worn yellow on my nails and I was a bit nervous about how this shade would look on me. I was having images of neon, banana-yellow nails that gleamed devilishly so much so that it would scare all the kids in the neighborhood :vampire: My fears were short-lived once I finally got down to applying this and now me likes it very much! :shy:

Lemon drop is a cheery, bright yellow that has the teeniest hint of mustard that lends the color some warmth and makes it more wearable. Since my hands are a bit wheatish in tone, I was afraid this shade would look awfully stark on me. But surprisingly it brightens up my hands without looking OTT.
Hereâ€™s where it fails big time! The color is absolutely sheer and application is streaky and uneven. It takes a minimum of 3 coats to opaque color. Application is far smoother when used over a base coat than when worn alone. Plus with the base coat, I needed only about 2 coats of lemon drop to get even color. It does not bubble and dries well within a minute.
It has a nice glossy finish. The nail paint looks lovely and smooth in day light. Under artificial lights the streaks tend to be more prominent.
I canâ€™t comment on the lasting power or chipping issues since I havenâ€™t worn this for more than a day. I have an obsession with matching everything to my clothes and this is the kind of shade that can clash badly with certain colors and outfits.
Removing this is quite a messy affair considering the number of coats it takes to apply this nail paint. Nevertheless, it does not stain nails and inspite of the intense yellow shade, my nails donâ€™t look one bit yellow after removal.

- Claims to fortify nails
What I donâ€™t like about Colorbar Nail Lacquer in Lemon Drop:

Final thoughts on Colorbar Nail Lacquer in Lemon Drop:
I would recommend this nail lacquer purely for the fun color. If you love bright hues and donâ€™t mind the application issues Iâ€™ve mentioned, then go for it. This is also a very apt shade for nail art, donâ€™t u think? :cute:
