My Review

Today I am going to share my review on this beautiful Shimmery Pink color by Kiko Milano. I am not a fan of baby Pink color on me but when the SA asked me to choose a complimentary Nail Polish from their huge selection, I could not help but notice this beautiful baby pink with hint of sparkle. You know me…. Glitters make me weak at the knees.

The color is BEAUTIFUL and shimmer particles makes it OH SO UNIQUE. You just need to have 2 coats to get that perfect pink nails. Kiko Milano Nail Lacquer in 505 dries super-fast and gives Textured/Sandy finish to the nails.

I had it on my nails for 4-5 days and afterwards it started chipping from the ends. I didn’t use any base or top coat as I wanted to check the longevity of this nail lacquer on its own.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Autumn Spice, Wintermint Review and Swatch

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Autumn Spice and Wintermint||0

The day I heard about these scented nail enamels I could not resist myself and purchased them online from Flipkart and got them delivered the very next day.

Today I am reviewing two shades from this range.

1. Autumn spice: It is a dark brown color with hint of golden and slight pink shimmers. It is a really beautiful color.

2. Wintermint: It is a minty green color with blue glitters and gold shimmer. I found these blend of colors really unique.

MRP: Rs. 350

Product description on Revlon Website:

A whole new way to experience color. Vibrant shiny shades go on smoothly for flawless color and then dry to light, irresistible fragrances.


Light fragrance revealed when dry

Light fragrance lasts all day

Available in 24 scented colors

Packaging: perfume inspired square bottle with black bulb cap.

Brush: Standard size brush.

Autumn spice



Color: Dark brown color with hint of golden and slight pink shimmers. Perfect color for winters.

Formula: It has a very smooth formula which is neither too runny nor too dense.

Opacity: It is very opaque, provides full coverage in one coat.

Dry time: Dry time is considerable, it took 8-10 minutes for two coats to dry completely.

Scent: I got the faint smell of cinnamon and vanilla.

Longevity: Regretfully the wear time is not so good. It started chipping from the tips within a day and color also started looking very dull. I am very disappointed with the wear time.

Removal: Easy to remove and leaves no stains.

My Vedrict: I am not satisfied with autumn spice, there is no doubt about the color but wear time is very disappointing.

My Rating: 1.5/5




Color: A minty green color with mix of blue and mint glitters. The combination is blended with golden shimmer.

Formula: Formula is little on runny side may be due to precise application of glitters. The even and smooth texture helps the glitters to disperse evenly on nails.

Opacity: Very translucent in first coat, you can build up the color in 3 coats.

Dry time: Dry time is considerable, it took 10-12 minutes for two coats to dry completely.

Longevity: Good wear time. It stayed on me intact for 5 days.

Removal: Difficult to remove like all glitter nail paints. Leaves no stains behind.

My verdict: The color is beautiful and so is the finish. I love how the glitters disperse evenly on the nails. Wear time is good as well.

Rating: 4.5/5 I wish the removal process of glitter nail paints are easy.





Ciate Twilight Nail Polish Review and Swatch

Ciate Twilight Nail Polish Review and Swatch

This is my first purchase for Ciate London. I got hooked with the color of the nail polish the moment i tried it.  Black is my all time favorite nail color plus i love all the things glittery and full of shimmer. And this nail polish is the blend of both. Gorgeous black color with golden shimmer, what a combination!!

MRP: Rs. 1,000
Shade Name: Twilight
Size: 0.46 fl.Oz/13.5 ml

I got this from Sephora in Select City Walk, Saket.

Packaging: Square curved transparent bottle with a cute bow.

Formula: Neither too runny nor too dense. Shimmer is like glossy flecks and well blended in the nail polish itself.

Application: As the formula is very good so is the application.

Opacity: Provides full coverage in two coats. First coat is quiet transparent and the color builds after the second coat.

Brush: Perfect shape, soft bristles. Covers the nail in 2-3 swipes.

Longevity: I am testing it and will update soon.

Dry Time: Dry time is quick.

My Rating: 4.5/5. Half mark deducted for the price but I don’t think we can do much about it. Still it really pains my heart to spend 1000 bucks on a nail paint.

OPI nail lacquer vernis a ongles esmalte de unas nagellack

MRP: Rs. 600

I am a BIGGG OPI fan and admire their nail paints for their awesome finish and longevity. This particular OPI nail paint was a random pick during one of my shopping trips to a shop nearby which sell many international brands. I liked the color then and there but was bit hesitant on spending 600 bucks on nail paint. After much debate in my mind I decided to pick this up and I am glad that I did 🙂

It is very gorgeous berry color, i am wearing two coats of it in pictures below.


The formula is neither runny nor dense.

Application is very smooth and even.

Two Coats give full coverage.

They didn’t chip for good 5 days.

Lovely Color: Color alone gets a plus from me.


Price is on high side.

My Rating: 4/5
