  • I love the packaging of Nykaa nail-enamel collections, in general.
  • The nail polish comes a frosted acrylic bottle
  • The cap is kind of matte black
  • Sleek packaging
  • Shade name & number are mentioned on the packaging
  • Warning is mentioned on the back of the bottle
  • Also,at the bottom of the packaging the manufacture & product-expiry details are mentioned,which is really great!
  • Travel-friendly packaging

Formula & Texture:
  • The formula is too good.It's not runny 
  • Has a medium coverage type of a consistency at one go
  • We need to apply the product at least twice to get that even-looking polish and opacity
  • Smooth application
  • Rich(full) colour payoff in two-three coats
  • We get kind of a sheer-finish in a single coat
  • Once applied, dries out quickly
  • Dries down to a complete matte finish

  • Stayed on the nails straight for five days and I observed that it had lost it's matte-effect on the fourth day from the day of application.
  • Didn't chip-off ,I had removed it after five days using a nail-polish remover
  • Easy to remove
  • It is a great nail polish especially when we are on a budget
  • It's worth every single penny as it has no harmful elements in it and is of a really good quality!
  • We are getting a lot(9 ml) of a product in INR 199,which is really cool in my opinion:)
  • Plus there are eight shades which are different from one another...that's awesome
Nothing at all

Will I re-purchase?
Yes,definitely.I want to try other shades from the collection.

Overall,I am in love with the shade that I have picked this time.I highly recommend that you check out the shades from the Nykaa's Nude Matte Nail Enamel Collection.They have some amazing shades to offer that too at a very reasonable price!
