Nykaa Matte Nail Lacquer Review & Swatches

” A Woman is helpless only when her nail polish is drying , although even then she could pull a trigger if she had to 😉 “

Hello my loves,
Welcome to my first ever product review blog post !
I would like to put it out there that all my reviews are my own and in no way sponsored. I have purchased all the products shown here by my own moolah !
Remember that time when a perfect manicure ended with a shiny , glossy top coat ? Well those days are long gone ’cause now , all that doesn’t is glitter is Gold ! Confused ? Don’t be ! I’m sure that by now , with the latest lipsticks coming out in the market , most of you must already be aware that this is the era of Mattes. So why should your talons be behind ?!?! Matte top coats have always been in the market but these weren’t very easily available and also they were pretty expensive. I personally am a fan of all things matte so when Nykaa launched their matte nail polishes , filling the huge gap in matte nail polishes for the Indian fashionistas , I just had to indulge ❤ . They come in 12 different shades of which I have bought 8 and I shall be swatching them for you. 

This is what Nykaa says about these nail polishes :
Get your nails runway ready with Nykaa’s Matte Nail Lacquer Collection. Keep these gorgeous shades on standby for the times when you want a more sophisticated vibe. Presenting tempting shades that dry to a stunning matte finish, this collection is dedicated for the ‘It’ girl in you. It’s time to embrace your chic, daring side with these alluring matte nail paints.
Our fashion-forward matte nail polish collection is bound to win every fashionista’s heart with its rich pigments and long-lasting color. From urban-chic pastels to daring deep hues, our matte collection has something for your every mood. T
he Nykaa Matte Nail Lacquer Collection is FIVE FREE. These matte nail polish formulas are not only made without the three most common chemicals found in nail polishes (Toluene, DBP and Formaldehyde), but also without two other very dangerous chemicals (Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor).
The Nykaa Matte Collection is NOT tested on animals (just on our team!) and contains no animal-derived ingredients.

Well , I totally agree ! Infact it’s more than what I had expected it to be.

  • You have a lot of options to indulge into and the palette ranges from dreamy pastels to chic grunge.
  • It is packaged in standard nail polish bottles but with a frosty finish making it look matte and super glam.
  • These are very durable and start chipping only after 3-4 days.
  • The consistency is thicker than usual , it isn’t as runny as glossy nail polishes.
  • It spreads evenly and applies perfectly opaque after 2 coats.
  • Dries super fast considering the thick texture that it has.
  • Dries to a beautiful matte texture.
  • Priced at Rs.199/- only.
