Welcome back to my blog. Hope you are doing great! Colorbar is one of my most favorite brands when it comes to nail lacquers. A while back, I had reviewed the shade Pinken Gold from their 24 Carat Range and today I have with me another shade from the same range, that goes by the name Liquid Gold. I would also like to mention here that Colorbar has recently revamped the packaging and this nail color now forms a part of the Arteffects Range. So if you wish to know my thoughts on this nail color, then do keep on reading. Let’s begin!
What The Brand Claims: A luxurious range of Golds with a Dual Chrome effect that envelopes your nails in 24 carat gold finish instantly. Replete with intense dual-shine golden pigments, this unique range allows you to experience two complementary color tones in one go. With a range of 6 shades of Gold, you are spoilt for choice and can easily find any shade of Gold that you desire.
The application is smooth, streak-free and single stroke. It leaves behind a unique almost foil-like liquid gold finish on your nails. What’s more is that the formula has an excellent drying time along with being 3-free, long-lasting, non-yellowing & chip-resistant.
Packaging: Colorbar has done a great job with the packaging of these nail colors. Like most nail polishes, this one too comes in a glass bottle that is sturdy as well as easy to carry around. It has a golden-colored cap that looks beautiful and adds bling to the overall packaging. The size of the brush is just right and it is very easy to use. It helps in even application of the nail color and makes it fuss-free. The shade name along with the shade number is mentioned at the top of the bottle, while the date of manufacturing is mentioned at its base.
Shade: ‘Liquid Gold’ is a unique and beautiful shade in this range. It is a bronze-gold color that contains loads of tiny orangish and golden shimmer particles. These shimmers are incredibly smooth and very finely milled. I would also like to mention here that this is not really a duo-chromatic shade but a shimmery one. It looks beautiful when the light hits and is great for daily wear too. This color looks great during both day as well as night time and not at all OTT.
My Experience With The Product: The Colorbar 24 CT Nail Lacquer in the shade Liquid Gold has a perfect consistency and the applies beautifully on the nails. The shimmers are very finely milled and feel really smooth on the nails. There is no harshness or gritty feeling whatsoever! The brush is also easy to use and picks up a good amount of product. The nail polish dries quickly and lasts for 4-5 days. But if you are someone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen or in doing household chores, then it can start chipping off from the tips in a day or two.
The pigmentation of this shade is quite sheer and needs around 3-4 swipes to go completely opaque. I have never experienced any yellowing of nails while using this nail lacquer. In addition, it is DBP and Toluene free as well, which is another plus! Removing this nail color is also not an issue and it easily comes off with a good nail polish remover.

It spreads on the nails with ease and dries down quickly. This shade needs around 3-4 coats to go completely opaque. Thus, the color payoff could have been better.
