A few months back, Nykaa had released a range of nailcare products specially formulated to provide nourishment to the nails. I recently tried out the 7-in-1 Nail Spa from the range, which claims to provide the following 7 benefits to the nails – Strength, Hardening, Protection, Smoothing, Hydration, Nutrition, and Shine. Read on to find out whether this product lived up to my expectations or not.
The Nykaa 7-in-1 Nail Spa is basically a slightly translucent, milky nail polish that provides a “My nails but better” look with two coats. It can be worn on its own or under another polish as a base coat. The formula is not thick, spreads easily on the nail and provides some shine too. It has a mild fruity scent which is quite pleasant. The formula contains Acetyl-Methionine and Keratin-like Peptide to prevent breakage and Hexanal to harden the nails. It also contains amino acids to stimulate growth, vitamin E and violet extracts for hydration, and argan and Baobab oils for nourishment.
While I have never suffered from growth issues, I do experience chipping of the upper parts of my nails quite frequently. After using this nail paint, my nails have not chipped or broken at all, and I am pretty pleased about it. Additionally, when used as a base coat, this nail product extends the life of nail paints by at least 2 days.
Overall, I am satisfied with this product purely because it strengthened my nails and prevented breakage. While it does provide a nice shine too, I personally prefer using it as a base coat, so the shine is lost on me. Priced at INR 249, this product is definitely worth the buy if you are suffering from weak nails that are prone to breakage.
The world has tried, reviewed and moved on from the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Nail Paints, but I usually wait a little before trying out buzz-creating products, so here I am after several months, finally reviewing the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Cherry Crunch Nail Paint. So if you are still looking for a review of the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Nail Paint, read on.
The basic idea behind the Nykaa Cookie Crumble Nail Paint range is that these nail paints come in pretty pastel shades with tiny black specks embedded through the formula, to resemble cookie crumbs. The range comprises of 7 shades and I picked up Cherry Crunch – a muted pink shade with the cookie flecks running throughout. Cherry Crunch is a perfect nude shade for my complexion, which makes this nail paint look pretty subtle despite the black flecks. In fact, I feel that the Cookie Crumble range, in general, is a great way to flaunt some nail art without going overboard. These nail paints can even be worn to work without looking flashy.
The formula of the nail paint is similar to that of other Nykaa cream nail paints. It is thin and runny and spreads quite easily on the nails and also dries up within a few minutes. The pigmentation is a little sheer, so you need 2-3 coats to get a fully opaque finish. The nail paint does not chip off for a good 4-5 days but the colour does begin to fade off a little in a couple of days. Also, because of the flecks, it is a little difficult to remove the product with a regular nail paint remover, but it is definitely not too hard either.
Priced at INR 199, this nail paint is a fun nail colour to have in your stash when you want something different and cute on your fingers 🙂
Won’t say much more in this post because the colour and shine of the nail paint speak for themselves. I highly recommend this nail paint range and everybody needs to try out at least one shade from the collection.
I just came to know that Nykaa is releasing some new shades as a part of their Pastel Nail Enamel collection, and here I am, still drooling over the shades from the original range. On my nails today is the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel in the shade 82 Lychee Delight, a sophisticated yet unique nude nail color that is the perfect balance of white and grey.
As the name suggests, this shade seems to be inspired by the color of the pulp of the lychee fruit, although it has slightly heavier grey undertones. This milky grey color will complement fair to medium skin tones really well and is the perfect shade for professional women.
This particular shade requires at least 2 coats and you may even need 3 coats if you want a completely opaque finish. Just like the rest of the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamels, the formula of Lychee Delight is also quite thin and easy to work with. The brush is a narrow one and you will need to go over each nail at least thrice to coat the entire surface. Despite the brush being narrow, the richness of the formula prevents the final finish from being streaky.
Priced at INR 179, the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamels are quite a bargain, considering the huge range of flattering shades they are available in. The only problem that I have with the formula is that it begins to chip within 3 days. Nevertheless, these nail colors are gorgeous while they last on the nails and I will definitely be checking out the new shades launched by Nykaa for this season!
I hope that this review was helpful, you can buy the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamels here.
