Hi everyone! I had reviewed Nykaa Silk Lacquer in Pretty In Pink sometime back on the blog. Fascinated as I was with the pastel colors, I had picked up two more shades from the range along with Pretty In Pink. I have been sporting Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady on my nails over the past week and here is the review. 🙂

My Overview of the Product :
The packaging of the Nykaa Silk nail paints is similar to their other Nykaa nail enamels. Streamlined bodies with matte black applicator, and shade names on a sticker on the side face of the bottle. These have a runny consistency and apply easy. However one needs at least two coats to give an opaque coverage. The drying time is decent, but I would rather be careful than be sorry. 😉
The finish is highly glossy, and gives an impression of “silk”. It is the finish of these lacquers that inspires the name of the range. These give a pearlescent sheen finish. However, the surface is prone to minor scratches if you’re working. Like when I’m typing away at the keyboard, the nails pick up some little damage on the lacquered surface.
The staying power of all Nykaa nail enamels that I’ve tried so far is commendable. These stay on for around 5 days without chipping, and show signs of wear around the sixth day. And all this without a top coat!
The Colors :
The names of these shades bear resemblance to old Hollywood classics. Wonder why Nykaa chose to name them this way? But I admit, I have always liked the names Nykaa associates with its products. 🙂
My Fair Lady – A pure pearly white, the one I’m sporting on the ring finger.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s – A mint green color with slight greyish undertones, but very subtle. Like Pretty In Pink that has subtle tints of pink, this shade also has “hints” of the pastel green hue. But I quite like this unconventional color, and more than that I like the name. Wonder if Audrey Hepburn would approve of this shade? 😉
The Final Verdict :
The Nykaa Silk Nail Lacquers are different from the normal nail paints in that they have a shinier finish than their contemporaries. The colors in this shade are very much pastel and look quite classy. I absolutely love their names, Nykaa always does a great job at that. They have a good staying power, but a little prone to scratches. I haven’t tried these with a top coat though. Of the three that I have, my favorite is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. 🙂 Oh and these are limited edition, so grab one at the earliest if any of the shades has caught your fancy!
My Rating : 4/5
