Nykaa Matte Nail Paint S’mores Milkshake – Review, Swatches

Hello everyone. It’s my first nail paint review as I’m not much into nail paints and rather like my nails all bare and natural! 🙂 But ever since Nykaa launched some pretty pastel shades in matte, I’ve been waiting to try them all along. I do not prefer very glossy and colorful nails, and more into pastel ones. And when pastel shades come matte, they’re definitely worth trying! The shade I’m going to review in this post is the Nykaa Matte Nail Paint in shade no.29, S’mores Milkshake.

The nail enamels in Nykaa Matte Nail Lacquer Collection is priced at INR 199 each, and certain combos are sometimes on discount. These are exclusively available at nykaa.com.

My Overview of the Product :

The packaging of the Nykaa nail paints is pretty straightforward. The matte ones have a frosted bottle and the black applicator is quite sleek. Overall, it looks quite chic and simple. The texture of this particular shade, S’mores milkshake, is a little on the thicker side and not very runny. It spreads quite evenly and is almost opaque on the first application itself. The color pay-off is pretty good too. Two coats of this, and I’m good to go flaunting my pastel matte nails! But be careful, as it takes a little time to dry completely. 🙂

The color of S’mores Milkshake is a pretty mauvish grey, and is a color I like a lot. The Nykaa nail paint stays matte for the first two days, after which the matte finish tends to get a little dull. It gets a reflective surface and on close observation, looks a little glossy. I guess the next time I’d be wearing this nail paint with a top coat, and see if that helps the application stay matte for a longer period. On me, it did not chip for a whole of 5 days, and I’m quite impressed. I wonder it must be the “plasticizer” thing doing the magic, as Nykaa says. 🙂

The Nykaa nail enamels claim to be FIVE FREE, that is, these are free from the many harmful chemicals, and that sounds so comforting. It also claims to conatin certain UV filter, protecting the color of the nail paint from fading too soon. The plasticizer infused in the Nykaa nail lacquer also shields the nails from soap and water. Wow. So many goodies in one small bottle of nail paint. Which also gives a matte finishVersatile pastel color range. And all these, at an affordable price. Quite spectacular I say! 🙂

The Final Verdict :

Well well. I totally love what Nykaa offers at this price point. I’m very satisfied with it’s longevity and the color is pretty awesome too. And oh! Did you notice the name? S’mores milkshake! It’s a sweet treat by the campfire, made of chocolates, marshmallows, crackers and all things sweet. The color, the name and the matte finish – all are so “fall”. Only if this nail enamel was a little quick drying! But it is definitely worth giving a try if you’re into pastels and mattes, and of course nail paint lovers out there! Don’t withhold on these amazing Nykaa Matte Nail Lacquers. They come so pretty and come so cheap. Now I’ll be trying their other shades as well in this range. 🙂
