Nykaa nail polish in violet macaroon swatch

Lipsticks, I can get away with buying just one shade, as it happens quite frequently. But for nail paints, I always get multiples. I don't buy nail paints very frequently. I hadn't actually bought a single bottle for over a year, simply because, I didn't need to. I had every shade imaginable when I was very much into nail art a year back (still into it, but just got lazy). And when recently, those old ones started to disintegrate, I loosen my purse string and bought some unique shades which I had never spotted before.



Maybelline had always been my favorite nail polish brand, as they are affordable and have a great selection of color. But when Nykaa hit the market with their selections of nail paints, lets just say I was simply wowed and now I do not buy anything else but Nykaa. They truly has unique and amazing shade selections. Take this gorgeous shade for example, violet macaroon.

Its a taupe with purple mixed in. They have mixed the purple so brilliantly that it gives a duo chrome effect. Of all the nail polishes I have tried in my entire life time, this has to be my favorite of them all. Even since I got this, I find myself only reaching for this, but then I control myself and wear other pretty shades, which again I got from Nykaa.

Nykaa proudly claim their formula to be free of Toluene, DBP and Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. They also contain UV filters to protect your nails and prevent from tuning yellow, which actually is true. None of the shade from Nykaa had made my nails yellow. The texture has the perfect consistency which smoothly applies on to nails without any pull or tug. The brush applicator, is the best. The flat brush coats the nails evenly without being streaky and gives a gel effect like finish. I am not able to find any negative thing to say about Nykaa's nail polish formula.

Priced at Rs 179, I feel is a little expensive, the only ouch factor!

These nail swatches were taken on the second day of wearing the nail paint. Doesn't it looks as if freshly applied ?

I know its quite expensive but it performs really well. The pigmentation is extremely opaque and single coat covers my nails evenly and looks pretty. Two coats always enhances the color, though. But you can easily get away with one coat. Most of the nail polishes I have tried from other brands, have always chipped from the second day, with my regular household work like cooking, cleaning etc. But this ones, stays on for quite a long time. I find it to fade and chip from the edges after 3-4 days, which is noticeable only if you look very closely. Their matte nail polishes stays even more longer. I had posted about them here.


This shade, you all have to get. It's the most elegant nail polish shade that your money can buy at Rs 200 price range. I am sure if you look into the ranges of OPI or Sally Hansen or any other high end brand you would find many elegant shades, but then they would burn a hole in your pocket. Kudos to Nykaa for making such high quality nail polishes.
