Color payoff

One coat is nicely pigmented for darker colors but neutral shades are semi transparent. To get the perfect shine and opaque salon like looks 2 coats work the best.

I applied 2 coats of the nail paints for an opaque and shiny finish.

Overall thoughts

Overall I am really impressed with the Nykaa Gel Shine Nail Enamel. I got only two of them right now. But will definitely purchase more.  The only issue I faced is that the nail enamels dont dry fast hence you need to give some good time to yourself for these.

I would give Nykaa Gel Shine Nail Enamel 4.5 out of 5

  1. Though I tend to leave my nails to the professionals, this polish could easily pass for something from an upscale salon! I love the neutral shade- so glad to hear the color is long-lasting and relatively chip-proof!
