Faces Ultime Pro Nail Lacquer review

Hello everyone!
Today I will be reviewing Faces' nail enamel in Disco Lights. I happened to stumble upon it while looking to buy their eyepencils and fell in love with it!

Price: Rs.399
 The nail lacquer contains tiny glitters of blue and purpley pink. I love the look! It truly does feel like disco lights, or something one would wear for a girls night out. The colour really stands out! The bottle is a short and stout transparent one. It is not too heavy, but I don't think carrying nailpolishes around is the best idea.

The nail lacquer's brush is not too thick nor too thin. It is just right for application. Even the length of the entire applicator is just fine. If you are putting it as a base coat, 3 coats are minimum to bring out the colour. If used as a top coat, 2 are enough. The only (and biggest) con of this colour is that it is a real pain to remove. I took nearly 30 minutes trying to remove this from my nails!! Finally found out that dipping cotton in nail polish remover and leaving it on your finger for a minute helps in removing the stubbon paint off your nails. But this takes foreverrr!

The colour lasts on nails for 3 days without chipping. But I highly recommend you put a transparent base coat over this once you're done applying it as the texture of this nail lacquer is rough, and hence more prone to chipping sooner. Also, it helps smoothen out the rough surface on your nails.

Sorry for my untidy nails.. will get them back to normal this weekend :D. I tried taking pictures in different lights to get the exact look but I couldn't do justice to it at all :(. The thumb and ring finger is with 2 coats while the rest are with 2.. put it that way so you know the difference it makes to the shine.




Without flash

Pros:
- Shiny and fun colour
- Easy to use

Cons:
- Expensive!
- Creates a rough surface without a transparent top coat
- A HUGE PAIN to remove.

Yay or nay to recommend?
I would recommend this nail lacquer for a party or fun occasion but definitely not something to wear every week. You do not want to suffer while removing  it all the time.

  2. Pretty color Neha.:)
    I know removing glitter polish can be very tiring. BTW you can put a cotton pad with remover on the nail and then cover it with a foil paper and let it stay there for a minute. This way removing them is easier.:)

  10. Ohhh my gosh, that polish looks so beautiful. I love a good opaque glitter! I think removal is a pain, too, but soaking or the foil method does help ♥
