The Nykaa Nail Enamel comes in a transparent glass bottle with a slender black cap. The bottles are more square in shape, as compared to the regular round polish bottles we see. Packaging is quite sleek and the square bottom makes it easier to store.

The color pay off of the Nykaa Nail Enamel range is pretty good. You do get a fair amount of color in the first coat itself. Also, the pigmentation is really good – the color doesn’t appear sparse or translucent at any point.

Lasting Power

This particualar shade lasted me for a good 4 days with absolutely no chip. This time frame includes a small amount of housework and also a hair wash test. Around the 5th day onwards, i did see the shade slightly chipping. Even then, it didn’t totally come off. The lasting power therefore is actually pretty good.
