I have been a fan of Kiko and Maybelline nailpolish and I don’t have many Lakme nailpolish. It never occurred to me to check out Lakme’s nailpolish collection, until recently when I spotted a beautiful rose gold shade among many other shades in display. After trying the rose gold shade (which will be reviewed soon), I purchased a couple more shades after a few days. Silver Glimmer shade is a recent purchase which I am reviewing in this post. I have many silver looking nailpolish (like THIS and THIS one) but I didn’t have a proper silver shade. This is my first true silver nailpolish.
Price: Rs 400 for 15 ml
Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist nail polish Silver Glimmer Review
Lakme Absolute gel nailpolish come in a big cylindrical glass bottle with long matte black cap. The shade name is stickered along the side of cap and price is written at bottom. The brush is wide but straight (not rounded like THESE) which makes the application uneven especially around the curve of nails. The brush picks up enough nailpolish to cover entire nail in one stroke.
As the name suggests, Silver Glimmer is a beautiful silver color nailpolish with silver microshimmer. Silver is an evergreen color which can be rocked in Spring as well as Fall, on traditional as well as western attire, as everyday color or in functions. Lakme Absolute Gel nailpolish in shade Silver Glimmer has mini holographic glitter which is more visible in the bottle and adds an overall beautiful effect on the nails. The added shimmer makes this a dazzling color. Metallic colors like silver tend to be streaky, but Silver Glimmer being a shimmer polish, hides the streaks.
The texture is neither too liquid nor too creamy. The pigmentation is amazing and the color goes opaque in 2 coats.
If you are not a fan of true silver color but still want a similar color, check THIS nailpolish by Colorbar.
This nailpolish takes a bit effort to remove because of glitter in it.
Price is a bit high but this is a big bottle so it is ok if you do the math, compared to other nailpolish in market (Maybelline’s Colorshow range is Rs 175 for 6 ml).
Lasts for 4-5 days without chipping and the shine tends to dull after around 4 days.
notice the holo glitters
Overall, Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist in shade Silver Glimmer is a true silver color nailpolish with shimmer and minute holographic glitter. The shimmer makes this a dazzling color, different from normal metallic finish. The consistency is between liquid and creamy and pigmentation is good. It goes opaque in two coats. Wear time is ok, 4-5 days. One thing which could have been better is the brush. The brush is long but straight and makes the application messy around the curve of nail. Price is on high side but the quantity is also more, so it will last a really long time. If you are fond of silver colors, do give this one a try.
