What the brand says: Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Nails gives instant matte finish which has a smooth texture, it last through the week. the packaging looks really pretty with a matte finished cap. Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Nails holds true to the chip proof promise but comes with a lot more.
MY TAKE ON LAKME 9 TO 5 PRIMER + MATTE NAIL COLOR
Packaging: The nail polishes come in the usual lakme nail polish bottles with frosted/matte rose gold cap. The applicator is easy to use and the packaging is travel friendly.
Texture: Some shades of nail polishes are thick while some are thin. They dry quickly into a beautiful matte finish.
Shade: There are a total of 9 shades in the range, I got the below 4 shades-
Green Matte- This is a beautiful greenish-mint shade and I absolutely love it! The finish is quite opaque in just one swipe.
Magenta Matte- This is a pure magenta shade and the finish is quite opaque in just one swipe.
Crimson Matte- This is a pure red shade and the consistency is a bit on the thinner side. You need 2 swipes for an opaque finish.
Charcoal Matte- This is a pure black shade and the consistency is a bit on the thinner side. You need 2 swipes for an opaque finish.
How I use and staying power: To use, simply apply 2 coats and let it dry. The nail polish dries to a completely matte finish which looks absolutely gorgeous. All the shades in the range seem pretty. I applied the nail polish a week ago and I still have it on which is quite surprising! I have a habit of using my nails as tools (bad habit, I know!) and my nail polishes always chip from the edges and eventually peel off. This nail polish after good 1 week hasn’t chipped even a bit and looks great! Also I feel these cannot easily be scraped off so your nail polish isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! If you are in a lookout for a long-lasting and matte nail polish, you definitely need to give these a try! I give this product a thumbs up.
