I am a big fan of dark nails and especially love black nail paint. Black is such a versatile color that you can never really go wrong with it. Short black nails look extremely chic whereas longer ones can make a bold statement. Both silver and gold rings can be thrown on to add a bit of sparkle. My favorite black nail paint is the Nykaa Pop Nail Enamel in the shade #84 Black Licorice.
It is a pure black color that becomes opaque in 2 coats. It has a medium shine and lasts on the nails for 5-7 days before it starts chipping. I would recommend using a top coat with this color to make it really stand out.
If black is not your color then I will recommend trying out the other shades from the Nykaa Pop Nail Enamel collection. The range of shades is very diverse and they all wear equally well on the nails. Priced at INR 149 for a 9 ml bottle, these nail paints are excellent in quality. They apply evenly and last long without staining the nails. Definitely worth a shot in my opinion.
If only I could summon spring by wearing bright colors! I almost detest winters because they are so dull and dreary and seem to suck the energy out of me. I love being up and about but the cold weather always casts an evil spell on me and I end up doing nothing. Things are looking up now because the clover leaves are starting to appear and the grass is getting greener, therefore, I am joining the celebration by embracing spring colors.
Today on my nails, I am wearing the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel in the shade #48 Lemon Pudding and am loving the vibes of spring that this color is imparting to my look :). Nykaa always knocks my socks off with the beautiful color selection of every nail paint range that they bring out. All the colors that I have tried out till now are unique and at par in terms of variety with the international brands. This particular shade is a muted, milky yellow, which makes it so much more wearable than an over the top bright yellow.
Although the formula of Nykaa nail enamels is not the best (it starts chipping and cracking on my nails within 2 days), I keep getting drawn to this range because of the attractive colors. I really hope that they improve their formula a little or introduce a range with a gel formula.
A 9 ml bottle of this nail paint is priced at INR 179. I would recommend trying out all the pastel shades from this range for spring.
