There was a time I was waiting to get my hands on the perfect orange nail paint. But guess what? Now I have a handful of really cool shades of orange – Neon, Brights, etc. And today I’m reviewing the shade Electric Orange by Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist. Gel nail paints are the rage abroad right now. Cured with the help of a UV Lamp – these gel paints offer much superior finish & last long.
Lakme claims: Nails are fast becoming the next big beauty accessory for today’s fashionable woman who seeks professional and salon based expertise to achieve highly styled nails. Inspired by this insight, the breakthrough Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist range packs the performance of a gel manicure in a bottle to ensure glossy and plump nails in a single stroke. This break-through product range aims to introduce the global trend of gel based manicures in the country. It comes with a highly pigmented colour formula to ensure super glossy and plump nails. A singular simple stroke delivers rich colour and a high gloss finish that stays for long. The Absolute Gel Stylist comes in exciting shades ranging from tomato tang, coral flush to nudes like nude glow and caramel melt. The range is your very own manicurist in a bottle giving you an unmatchable shine and the most perfectly styled nails.
My opinion about this product: Firstly, the size of the bottle is impressive. I read people complaining about the pricing, but I think with respect to the quantity the price is quite reasonable. The shade looks like a muted orange and matte in the bottle. But surprisingly its quite bright and glossy on the nails. It is a bright and subtle orange. I don’t like shades that make my hands look dark and Electric Orange gorgeously brighten up my skin tone and makes my hands look so pretty.
The brush is big enough for easy and equal application. The formula of the product is neither too thick nor too runny. It is easy to apply and delivers perfect finish with 3 coats. Now lets talk about the duration – Well, it looks nice and glossy for 2 days and then it starts fading and chipping from the tips and edges which is quite disappointing as c’mon these are gel nail paints so should last long but alas!
