Nykaa Floral Carnival Nail Collection

 

Hi everyone! Hope you had a good Diwali! Today I’m sharing the all new Floral Carnival collection from Nykaa with you. This range contains 16 shades of cream nail paints, divided into four color categories – Reds, Pinks, Pink Browns and Purples. Each color category contains four colors starting from lighter pastels to more saturated, rich colors. There’s a color for every skin tone in here, especially among the pinks that give us lots of variety in this collection as a whole! If you’re into ombre nails, its very easy to pick the gradients as well as the colors go from light to dark.

Overall, its a very pretty collection! The Nykaa cream formula is quite nice, most shades applied opaque with single coat (only some of the lighter colors needed two coats for full opacity) and they have a nice cream finish with a quick dry formula. They stay well on my nails for 5-6 days without chipping.

Price : Rs 179 for 9 ml | Buy online at Nykaa.

Nykaa So Matte! Lipsticks | Swatches, Review

 

Hi everyone! Nykaa.com has launched their range of matte lipsticks and I am super excited to share this review with you! These lipsticks have are creamy matte texture, really good color pay off and staining long wear. The range contains 12 shades and these are priced very affordably at Rs 399.

The clean and simple black matte packaging has a magnetic closure and the square tube reminds me somewhat of Burberry lipsticks. The formula feels very luxurious, is comfortable on the lips even after 4-5 hours of wear and the faint vanilla scent makes it quite nice to use. Check out the video for lip swatches!

Nykaa Matte Nail Paints : Review | Part 1

 

Hi everyone! Nykaa has recently launched their Matte nail polish range (Rs 199 each) consisting of 12 shades, most of which are a soft pastels. I’m sharing swatches of 9 of these shades in this post along with a quick review of the formula. I’ve recently tested the Revlon Matte Nail Enamels as well and in comparison, I find the Nykaa mattes a little more durable with better staying power. The consistency of most of the Nykaa shades is on the thicker side (with some exceptions) and most shades applied opaque in two coats. I had some trouble with the white (07 White Chocolate Ganache) and pale blue (18 Blueberry Macaron), which applied a little bit uneven, but the inconsistency was visible only close up. They did not take long to dry though with the thick formula, they aren’t the quickest drying nail paints either.
