Hope you are all doing well. This is my second review and I really enjoyed doing it because of the large number of photos involved.
Today, I’m going to review a set of NYX nail polishes from the NYX Decadent Delights Nail Art Collection. I must say that the nail polish centre of my brain had been lying deactivated for so many years and it suddenly jerked into action a few months ago 😛 I was googling for something and I came across some stunning pictures of glitter nail polishes and that was it, I decided to give it a go and bought this set. This is my first attempt at a nail polish review, so kindly bear with any mistakes.
Decadent Delights 18 piece nail art set offers a variety of jewel-toned options for manis and pedis. The high-quality formula comes in the season’s hottest on-trend fashion colors. Go for it, there are zero calories in this indulgent decadence.
My Experience with NYX Decadent Delights Nail Art 18 Piece Set:
This is a set of 18 mini nail polishes. They consist of 9 creamy, 3 shimmery and 6 glitter polishes. I chose this mainly for the glittery ones, and I thought the other colors were pretty too. As a starter, I got much variety in a single pack. This is called nail art collection, but I don’t have any experience in that field, so I am using them as regular polishes with a little bit of layering. Most of these are from NYX’s Advanced Salon formula nail paint collection. You can buy individual shades from there. Let’s check them one by one:
Pure white. Opaque in 2 coats.
Cloudy grey. Opaque in 2 coats.
Opaque shade. Single coat used here.
Creamy nude. Opaque in 2 coats
Shimmery green. Requires 3 or 4 coats.
Very sheer, almost watery blue. You never achieve the color in the bottle, 4 coats applied here. A bummer!
Bright red. Opaque in 2 coats
Requires 3 coats.
Brownish gold. Great for Indian skin. Opaque in 2 coats.
Opaque in two coats.
Gentlemen Prefer Red:
Deep maroon. Opaque in two coats.
Opaque in 3 coats.
Lasting power is good. Goes 4 to 5 days without chipping.
Now the glitters! These are beautiful colors. But glitter pay off is not much. You have to apply at least 3 coats and it never dries because all these have thick gel bases.
Small silver holographic glitter in clear gel base. Looks good over colored base coats, 2 coats over NYX Black here. This is the one with maximum glitter pay off. Looks more beautiful in real.
Golden small and large hexagonal particles in clear base, 3 coats over NYX White here.
Pink small and large hexagonal glitter in sheer pink gel base, 3 coats worn alone here.
Dark red small and hexagonal glitter in sheer black gel base. 3 coats worn alone.
Small hexagonal purple glitters in clear base, 3 coats over NYX Nude pink here.
Small and hexagonal holographic glitters in sheer black gel base, 3 coats over NYX Black here.
