Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel collection
Nkyaa sent me their newly launched Matte Nail Enamel Collection last week. At the risk of sounding like a brat, I haven't applied a high-street brand's nail polish in years. I had my nails turn yellow twice, on using polishes from two different budget beauty giants and have stuck to the luxury section since. Needless to stay, I was skeptical to try these polishes but decided to give them a try because of the amazing range of shades in their uber cute frosted bottles (and their yummy names).
First things first, I am happy to report that there was no discolouration on my nails. I have tried on six of the twelve shades and even the dark colours came off clean leaving my nails looking healthy. The nail paints go on easily, giving you the bottle colour in two applications. These nail enamels were also one of the fastest drying that I have used. The finish is completely matte with zero shine. I was a pleasant change from the glossy polish that I usually go for. I was also happy to read that these nail enamels are "devoid of harmful chemicals."
My favourites of the lot were, the Pink Meringue, Lavender Panna Cotta, Blueberry Macaron and White Chocolate Ganache. I was probably leaning towards these as it is still very hot in Bombay. I am sure come winter, I will enjoy wearing the darker shades just as much. :-)
