Lakme Absolute Nail Tint Review- Purple Rain

Lakmé Absolute Nail Tint- Purple Rain Review-


Nykaa recently gave me a chance to try these lovely nail paints out and I am more than happy today to review this nail polish, which is a bit expensive, but totally worth it :D I am currently loving this pastel shade and the finish is really good...Read on to know more...

Product Description- These pastel nail colors in 8 tinted shades promise a jolt of color with an unmissable smooth finish and lacquered shine that say tint all the way. Get purplicious with the all new Purple Rain from Lakme Absolute Nail Tints. This subtle yet poppy hue makes your nails garner all the attention without being OTT.

Shelf Life- 36 months from Pkd.

Ingredients- Not mentioned


Price of this nail varnish- Rs. 250 for 10ml ( I got it for Rs. 225 from Nykaa.com)

My Take On Lakme Absolute Nail Tint: Purple Rain-

This Lakme nail lacquer comes in a good looking glass bottle with a plastic cap. It is a Limited Edition Nail paint from Lakme Fashion Week. This nail tint smells a bit alcoholic and some might not like it, but believe me, most of the nail paint smell that way! The brush is of good quality and it helps in spreading the nail polish nicely. One problem I have is with the consistency- it is very very thin, which makes it very difficult for me to apply it properly. After a lot of time, I managed to properly apply the nail paint with 2 coats.


This nail colour is a lovely pastel lavender kind of color and it would look good on all skin tones and nail sizes. The finish it gives is slightly glossy and slightly matte, which is overall semi-matte. This nail varnish stays on my nails for like 3 to 4 days after which it starts to chip. Yes, I expect a bit better staying power at this price. Also, the ingredients list is missing. Overall, this nail enamel is a good buy and you should definitely try it out because such beautiful shades are a bit difficult to find!

PROS-

1) Lovely pastel lavender-purple shade
2) Average staying power of 3-4 days
3) Would suit all skin tones
4) Would look lovely on all nail sizes- short, medium or long
5) The brush does its job well
6) Packaging is travel friendly and stylish
7) Lovely semi-matte finish
8) Amazing shelf life of 3 years


CONS-

1) A bit expensive
2) Ingredients list not mentioned
3) Was expecting a better staying power and quantity
4) Very very thin consistency makes it a bit difficult for me to apply it


Final Verdict- This is a very pretty shade of nail paint from Lakme! The staying power is really good, of about 3-4 days, and this nail paint looks really stylish. Also, this pastel shade will suit almost all skin tones and would look good on long and medium nails as well on short nails. These Lakme nail tints are available in the following shades- Orange Squash, Coral Romance, Red Chiffon, Fuchsia Sorbet, Purple Rain, Kiwi Martini, Blue Breeze, Aqua marine.
