Faces recently launched their Ultime Pro Sand Coat Nail Lacquers and I had blogged about the event HERE.
Today I will be reviewing a gorgeous shade from the same range called Red Velvet.
The Faces Ultime Pro Sand Coat Nail Lacquer #63 RED VELVET (Rs 399,available across Faces Counters, and stand alone stores) is a beautiful Red with a hint of Pink and an absolutely gorgeous gritty finish like golden sand.
The Nail Color needs three coats to give completely opaque color. It comes in a round nail polish bottle with a black cap and I think they could have done a better job at the packaging. The round cap/brush handle sometimes slips from my hands while I apply the polish and therefore I would’ve loved something with a better grip, maybe a rubberized cap!
The consistency of the nail polish is neither too thick nor too thin and the excellent quality brush makes application a cakewalk. I especially like the fact that even with a gritty texture like this, the nail polish dries quite quickly, but not as fast as to make application tough.
The Nail Color chipped mildly after 3 days of wear as you can see in the pictures below, and this is when I wash my hands way too many times a day, and do quite a bit of housework. Otherwise, I am pretty sure you can get a minimum of 5 days of wear with this one, even without a top coat.
It’s your magic potion for a fabulous manicure at home!!
Surprisingly, for a glittery grainy nail color, I had no trouble taking it off with a nail polish remover, so that’s a big plus from my side. You know how tough it is to take off glitter nail polishes,right??
Overall, The Faces Ultime Pro Sand Coat #63 Red Velvet is a total winner for me because of
- The staying power
- The fabulous brush tip
- The gorgeous grainy finish
- They can instantly turn your nails from Drab to Fab, who wants to go to a salon for a manicure!
- Finally,we have textured Nail polishes in India
