When I was in school, I was very fond of nail polish. So much that I would buy them very frequently. I almost had all shades of nail paints. I would see a particular shade, fall in love with it immediately and buy it.
Slowly, when I came in my masters,I reduced applying them. I would hardly have time. That is when I decided to do a downsizing of my nail paints. I realised that most of them had expired, gone bad and old. This is when I thought that I was holding on to them just for the sake of the collection I had. I would feel so bad throwing them because I had invested so much of money in it which just went down the drain.
Over the years, my patience with putting a nail paint also decreased and I would apply it only for any functions or parties. Now I am proud to say that I possess only few basic shades which I use. It’s easier to maintain them and keep a check of their expiry.
So here are my top 5 basic nail polish-
1. Kay beauty nail nourish rose dust-20
Kay beauty is a brand by famous Katrina Kaif, it is one of the best beauty brands in India now. When I was going through their collection I came across very beautiful shades of nail paint. My most favourite is the rose dust. It is a very good peachy nude shade which goes with almost everything. The shade is neutral and subtle. The quality of nail paint is very good and it stays long with a top coat. You can buy this shade from Nykaa.
2. Kay beauty nail nourish shade- Angellic 08
This shade is the most loved and favourite shade of Kay beauty. It is a beautiful lavender colour in pastel shade. The shade is neutral but at the same time so vibrant and cute. It is the perfect shade for an afternoon brunch, or a girls day out. This is one shade I would love to purchase again and again. This nail paint will surely grab a lot of attention. Easily available on nykaa. It’s affordable and lasts long.
3. Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist- 25 Marshmallow
Lakmé is a well known name in India. It is a brand I have grown up with. Lakmé never fails to amaze me with their range of nail paints. I have been using Lakmé since my school days. I came across this range of nail paints by them called as gel stylist. It claims that it has a glossy finish to it. I must say it is true to its claim. The nail paint is shiny and glossy with gel technology which make it lasts longer. My favourite shade is the marshmallow. It’s a very cute baby pink colour which suits with a number of pieces in my wardrobe. It is easily available on Nykaa.
4. Lakmé 9-5 premier + gloss Red Splash
