I have been off from IMBB completely since last few months. There were a lot of things happening on the personal front that made my life a complete mess. But I am very happy to be back with you all.
I am going to review gel nail paint from Lakme- Coral Rush. A few of them have already been reviewed here. When I was a kid I had this bad habit of biting my finger nails. My mother had tried everything possible to stop me from doing it. She used to apply a paste of aloe vera and neem on my nails but that also couldn’t stop me from biting my nails. It was not until I went to college that I felt envied of girls having long and beautiful nails. Since then I have tried not to bite my nails and often I do get complemented by friends and family on how beautiful they look now.
Nails are fast becoming the next big beauty accessory for today’s fashionable woman who seeks professional and salon-based expertise to achieve highly styled nails. Inspired by this insight, the breakthrough Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist range packs the performance of a gel manicure in a bottle to ensure glossy and plump nails in a single stroke. This break-through product range aims to introduce the global trend of gel based manicures in the country. It comes with a highly pigmented color formula to ensure super glossy and plump nails. A singular simple stroke delivers rich color and a high gloss finish that stays for long. The Absolute Gel Stylist comes in exciting shades ranging from tomato tang, coral flush to n*des like n*de glow and caramel melt. The range is your very own manicurist in a bottle giving you an unmatchable shine and the most perfectly styled nails.
Professional finish gel nails.

400 INR for 15ml. But I got it for 360 INR as I bought 7 at the same time.
How to apply:
First, apply a base coat of clear nail polish for a smooth surface to work on. Place a drop of polish at the bottom of the nail, just enough to cover your entire nail. Spread the polish in even strokes. Apply a second coat once the first coat dries for a richer color.
My take on Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Paint Coral Rush:
I have started liking coral a lot. After purple it has become my favorite shade. Whenever I see anything in coral I am tempted to buy it on the spot and the same happened with this nail paint. This nail paint is a gorgeous coral shade with a neon touch to it. Whenever I have a doubt on what to apply over my nails, I end up applying this shade. It complements every skin tone very well.
The nail paint comes in a huge and sturdy glass packing with a black cap on it. The applicator has a flat applicator which gives a non streaky finish in a single application. The nail paints are a bit thick then the usual ones. The flat brush makes the application very easy and fast. Even a single coat of this nail paint is enough to get the glossy gel like effect but I always end up applying two coats for the perfect finish. The nail paint dries fast and I haven’t experiences any smudging. Without applying the top coat the nail paint stays intact for 3-4 days but then starts chipping. And this is when I do not do any sort of household work. The staying power of this nail paint is same as that of any ordinary nail paint. When I apply a base coat over, it stays for a week without chipping.
Pros of Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Paint Coral Rush:
• A gorgeous coral shade.
• Would suit every skin tone.
• Perfect for any occasion
• Gives a perfect glossy finish after 2 coats.
• The flat applicator makes application easy and fast.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Paint Coral Rush:
• The staying power to the price paid ratio is very low.
