I’m not one for blue nails really but when I saw this nail paint at the Faces counter, I conjured up an image of glossy iridescent midnight blue, like the gorgeous L’Oreal Infallible eye shadow All Night Blue. Sadly, this nail enamel from Faces turned out nothing like that! Read on to know why..
Price : Rs 199
My take on the Product
I haven’t tried any nail enamels from Faces before so I don’t know if this is the quality of the product the entire range. But if it is, I’m definitely not picking up another shade! The nail paint has a slightly thin consistency and one would need a minimum of 2 coats for near opaque coverage though I applied 3 for fully opaque coverage. It dries fairly quickly but the finish is rather dull – not creamy/glossy/metallic but just somewhere in between. It looks glossy when freshly applied but within a few hours, it degenerates to a dull finish. I added a clear top coat and that added some glossiness to it. With 3 coats of nail paint and 1 top coat, I had expected this to not chip too soon but I began seeing wear at the nail tip from the second day itself. At Rs 199, it definitely does not deliver. I would rather pick up Lakme, Revlon or Colorbar nail paints for lesser price and get much better quality!
The shade Siberian Nights in a deep cerulean blue with a slight metallic sheen. Few hours after application, the finish gets rather dull and looks neither metallic nor glossy or matte. It looks much darker in the bottle and thats how I had envisioned the shade to be when I bought it. I think the shade would have looked lovely if only the finish was more refined and long wearing!
The GOOD about Faces Nail Enamel Siberian Nights :
- Dries fast
- Decent brush
- Needs 3 coats for full opaque coverage
- Streaky finish
- Finish gets dull very quickly
- Begins to chip after a day even with 3 coats and a top coat
- Overpriced for the quality
Faces Nail Enamel in Siberian Nights is a deep cerulean blue with fine metallic shimmer. It needs 2-3 coats for opacity but even with that, it begins to chip in a day itself. The finish is neither completely matte nor glossy or matte. While it does have some redeeming qualities like quick drying time, it wears poorly and the finish is streaky and tacky. I would not recommend this!
