Glossy Top Coat for Nails With Oriflame and Lakme
I must admit I have been striving for neat glossy nails these days. Pinky glossy nails are just so sleek and professional. More so they take such little effort. Most good top gloss coats dry within ten seconds if worn alone on the nail. Whenever I am short of time, I paint a coat of clear gloss on my nails and I love that sparkle. I am still in the market for a pinkish glossy color but as of now I am very happy with my clear nail gloss coats. Obviously I keep testing and my new favourite for nails is Oriflame. Apart from these two gloss coats, I have the growth booster, nail butter, cuticle serum, nail hardener, base coat, and peel off whitener from oriflame(tell me if you need me to review any of these before you buy them)I bought all of these cause I completely trust the brand and they really work! There was a time when my nails had just stopped growing and were so brittle when ever they grew. The people at the salon said that I should consume more of milk. I did not do so but I started taking care of my nails with strengthening products from a lot of reputed brands and now my nails are not only, strong but they grow and are whitening each day. So in order to retain that quality I let my nails be and just paint them with these glossy top coats every now and then. I also use these over nude nail paint or any other if you like.
Oriflame beauty glossy top coat:
7ml (please visit their website for the current price)
This comes in a very cute rectangular bottle and has absolutely thick clear liquid inside. I just love the look and the packaging. There is a “please turn over” symbol on the tiny leaflet attached on the bottle which says instructions in various languages. The one in English says “ apply top coat over dry nail polish as desired”. The cap is rectangular and super easy to hold while application. The brush is amazing with sturdy thick plastic bristles which really spread on the nail for even application. Just two strokes will cover the whole nail evenly. This coat dries in 15 seconds when air dried. I will give the glossiness 4 out five for this one. Use with French manicure, over nail paint, on its own or as barrier against peel.
This is a specific top coat, a very clear liquid and does not claim any glossiness on its part. They come in round bottle with a normal looking cap like any other nail paint with normal bristles. This is also quite cheap (69 rs for 8 ml) than the above glossy top coat. The liquid inside is not as thick as the above one and is more runny. On the contrary, I realised that this top coat is glossier than the above and dries faster than the above too. It is a must have for this price and quality. Use with French manicure, over nail paint, on its own or as barrier against peel. five out of five for glossiness. Lakme spa line go gloss hard wear top coat: Price :195 rs for 7 ml
What the product claims on the pack:
- Illuminate your nail make up with a coat of gloss
- With extra protective armour against wear and tear
How to use: Apply one coat on dry nail polish to enhance shine and give protection to your nail color The bottle has a long shape with a very long shiny silver cap like its other spa line products (lakme protective base coat review here) the bristles are like the glossy top coat by oriflame but softer. (Bristles do make a difference in ease of application for me as I have a wide nail bed) just two little strokes are enough. The liquid is not as clear and has a yellow tint to it. It is like a plastic coat and dries the fastest.
All the above can be used for French manicure, top coat, only coat or protection against peel and brittleness as these form a plastic like coat on the nails for a week. All of these work well but lakme and oriflame beauty glossy top coat last longest. However, if you are also looking for protection and hard coat buy lakme. But the oriflame visions quick dry top coat for gloss factor, the money and the quantity.
So what top coat do you use?
I also need recommendations for a pale glossy pink nail color in any brand.
