This has been my all-time favourite nail polish for many years. The Lakme True Wear nail polishes come with a very good applicator brush. It holds enough paint so you don’t need to keep dipping the brush many times for each nail, and not so much paint that it clumps up on the nail. The brush also spreads well when applied to the nail and distributes the paint well. The consistency of the polish is good and it spreads evenly on the nail, not patchy at all. It also lasts pretty well on the nail and does not chip for at least 4 days. I like the fact that it dries quite fast. Lakme True Wear nail polish comes in many beautiful wearable shades to suit every occasion and mood.

The only drawback is that it doesn’t have a high shine finish like some other nail polishes I’ve tried.

However, I have repeatedly been willing to compromise on the shine factor simply because of all its other good qualities. Overall, it’s a great nail polish for the price (I think it is presently Rs. 90 to 100).

My favourite shades: 103 (a lovely light purple with a little shimmer) and 202 (Wildflower Mauve)
