Nykaa Unicorn Potion Nail Enamel: Mystical Mermaid ~ Review & Swatch

 

Nykaa launched Unicorn Potion range sometime back and I immediately bought two shades from this range.  Although Nykaa describes this as ‘Holographic’ polish, these are NOT holographic in any sense. A couple of shades may be duochrome but none of them is Holographic. For the record, THIS is a true Holographic polish. I have reviewed a gorgeous lavender-blue duochrome shade- Frosted Fairy from this range HERE and in this post I am reviewing the shade Mystical Mermaid.

 

Product description: Be a mermaid and makes waves with our Nykaa Unicorn Potion Nail Enamel in Mystical Mermaid. This stunning blue shade is formulated with iridescent pink and silver pearls that give your pinkies an ocean-inspired holographic effect. Dip your pinkies in this magnificent shade and blow some kisses!

 

Price: Rs 199 for 9 ml

Shelf life: 3 years

 

Nykaa Unicorn Potion Nail Enamel Mystical Mermaid review

  • Like all Nykaa Nail Enamel, Unicorn Potion range comes in sleek rectangular packaging with brand name at front and product details at the back.
  • Unicorn Potion Nail enamel range has an interesting packaging with elongated and pointed cap (copy of Louboutin nailpolish?). The rose gold color of the cap with chrome finish is attractive.  The pointed cap makes it bit difficult to store compactly, but otherwise the packaging is stunning and looks quite fancy.
  • The shade name is stickered along the side.
  • Mystical Mermaid is a surf-blue color with slight pink iridescence. It has blue and pink microshimmer which gives an overall pearl effect. This is a soft color and looks really subtle and pretty.  All the shades in this range have a blue shimmer shift which is visible from different angles.
  • The consistency of this nailpolish is on the sheer side and needs 3 coats for full coverage. I like to wear this nailpolish on its own without any base color. Wearing a white/ black base color will change the color of the nailpolish.
  • There is a slight streaking so you have to apply carefully.
  • The brush is long and picks enough quantity for one coat application.
  • Staying power for these nailpolish is amazing and lasted 5 days with minor chipping on my hands.
