Classical Ballet On My Nails

At first, I pronounced it "Bail Classico". I thought it meant "Basic Classic", or something like that. Hey, don't point & laugh at me! 
I googled the two words only to get those French dashes on top of the e & a (now how do you type those on a laptop?), and the meaning popped up like a slap in the face.
It means 'Classical Ballet', you idiot! And 'Bail'? What the F....rench?! Here, slap your face against my hand, I can't bend my arm from this position. 
Maybelline Colorama Balé Clássico is a beige with an equal mix of taupe & pink undertones . The combination makes it a delicate color. I am so in love with it that it could be....it already is, actually.....my holy grail nail polish. I like it better than the Colorbar #66 I showed here, just because it has more pink in it.
It is sheer, like most light nail polish, and I had to apply 3 coats for it to look opaque. With a top coat, I start to see it chipping after 4-5 days- my right hand fingers. Left hand fingers still look almost as good as new.
 Price ~ Rs.100

Just wanted to show you the natural pic below, coz I like how it turned out. I love how the sun  rays gave it those bubbles....
Very Center Stage.  I see beauty in the most unlikely things, so it's okay if you don't get it  =)

  12. I bought it and I think it is the ultimate nail colour. It's something that Audrey Hepburn, or Jennifer Aniston would use. It's for women who don't have to try too hard. It is quiet and elegant. I'm addicted to it. My all time favorite colour. Thanks Colorama.

  13. A brazilian nail polish <3

    I had no idea that the Colorama was sold in other countries! In general, nail polishes here has great brands and colors
    And yes, "Balé Clássico" portugues, means Classic Ballet

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
