Nykaa Nail Paint Rose Quartz

Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel In Rose Quartz (No.27) – Review And Swatches

Hola Amigos!

Beatles Legend John Lennon quoted in one of his songs- “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”. These amazing words of wisdom certainly apply to me. I’m the most procrastinating person when it comes to applying nail paints. I almost plan everyday to apply or change my nail paint but it rarely happens. There have been times when I’ve gone out with full glam on but without my nails being done (I always happen to keep them crystal clean though). But there are random days aka weekends when I reach out to my Nail Paint stash and become the Painter that I’m not. Coming to the first Nail Paint review of Blame It On Makeup, this beautiful shade- Rose Quartz  from Nykaa’s Pastel collection caught my fancy as it is one of the Pantone Color of the year 2016.

Price: INR 179

Quantity: 9 ml

Shelf Life: 2 years from Mfd.

Detailed Ingredient List:  Not mentioned on the bottle or the website. It just mentions that it is free of some harmful chemicals.

Packaging:  Clear rectangular glass bottle with Black screw cap. Subtle packaging which doesn’t look cheap at all. The brush is perfectly sized which is neither too thin nor too broad. It gives complete nail coverage in 3 strokes. It should however mention the Shade and Range name on the bottle i.e. Rose Quartz & Pastel Collection instead of the sticker

Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel In Rose Quartz- My Review

Rose Quartz is a beautiful pale pink sans any shimmers which definitely makes it a summer color. The nail paint looks really pretty on my currently tanned hands and stays on for around 5-6 days. I would have loved it more if it smelt like roses (I’m such a dreamy little girl). As much as I’m in love with this shade, I don’t like the fact that this nail enamel from Nykaa takes at least 3 coats to get the perfect opaque color which is a big No-No for me in nail paints. I wish it had a good color payoff in single stroke and wasn’t translucent. I have tried other shades from this range and they are nowhere like this one.  Stay Tuned to see Reviews & Swatches of more shades from Nykaa’s Pastel Range.

Final Verdict: I might not go back to this particular shade because of the application hassles it comes with.  I have tried other shades from this range though and look forward to trying out some more.

                  The best way to thaw is overnight in the? refrigerator, the second best way is to run cool water over them until they thaw. If they smell fishy, try sprinkling with lemon juice and letting that sit on there a while before cooking. I’ve also heard you can soak “fishy” fish in milk, but haven’t tried that with shrimp. Good luck!
