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.

Revlon Matte Nail Enamel - Flaming Matte
Revlon Matte Nail Enamel – Flaming Matte

 

Hi everyone! Revlon recently launched their matte nail paints (Rs 190 each) and I received 3 gorgeous bright shades to try out. I love my matte lipsticks but I wasn’t sure about matte nail colors but I’m happy to report, I really like how these looks on my nails. The formula has medium consistency, goes near opaque in two coats, dries quite quickly and has a gel matte finish. These aren’t flat mattes but I really like the cushioned gel matte look. Because of the matte finish, the colors look quite intense and I love the polished velvety look.

Nykaa Pastel Nail Collection

Nykaa Pastel Nail Collection

 

Hi everyone! Nykaa has recently added 7 new pastel nail colors to their nail enamel range. This mini collection contains a nice variety of pretty pastels colors, with some very clever names! I have a couple of Nykaa nail polishes and I quite like the formula. It’s free from Toluene, DBP & Formaldehyde, applies opaque in 2 coats and stays well for 5-6 days with minimal chipping. The price point of Rs 149-179 is quite comfortable as well.

My personal favorite from this range is the soft purple-y color called Blackcurrant Gelato which was recently featured in my June Beauty Favorites video as well. It’s a very unique color among the usual mint and peachy pastel shades. You can buy it online here at Nykaa.com.
