NYX Advance Salon formula Nail Polish in English Rose

Hey everyone,

Today I will be reviewing my first NYX product on this blog - NYX Advance Salon formula nail polish in English Rose.

I am a big fan of nailpaints and my makeup shopping list always include hoarding on the nailpaints. Plus I love to try different brands. The only hiccup is that somehow I cannot bring myself to buy anything new apart from reds, pinks and oranges . Sometimes I choose nude or metallic colors too, but still there is a while lot of variety out there to choose and hoard :P.

This time I tried NYX . This is the first time I bought their Nail paint otherwise all I have heard about NYX is their famous blushes and eye makeup range. NYX has 144 colors in their Advance Salon Formula nailpaint range. 144 !!!! Can u believe that . How can one possibly make a choice in such a huge variety of color range. I mean you are spoilt for choices. And that's what love and absolutely adore about NYX everytime. Unlimited choices for everything. In my case I bought the first shade on display at . The shade is English Rose and of course a one belonging to a pink family.

What does NYX says about the product 

One coat of this pro favourite polish is all it takes to transform your hands from ho-hum to haute stuff. With so many brilliant, on trend colors and 10 nail treatments, out salon formula system makes it easy to get sexy, salon quality manis and pedis without ever leaving home

My take on the product 

The nailpaint comes in a square shape transparent glass bottle with little tapering at the end and little detailing on the top of the black cap which makes it quite stylish and diffemt from the standard packaging of the nailpaints. The packaging is cool, trendy and travel friendly. The brush is wide and fanned and gives a smooth streak free  application.

The English Rose color is a bright pink color and looks really nice . It brightens the nails and gives a glossy finish . The two strokes and you are done with the opaque finish of the bright pink color. However though the formula on initial application is quite salon like , the glossiness fades after 8-10 hours and you are left with the matte color on the nails. The staying power is at par with the average range i.e. the color stays on for 2-3 days without chipping . These nailpaints are available for Rs. 350/- on Nykaa ,Amazon and other Online sites in India and for $4. 00 in other places. I could see them selling at discount at $ 3.50 on CherryCulture and other online sites. Price wise they are nothing compared to Maybelline but in the same range as compared to all other brands. 

The plus Side of the NYX Advance Salon Formula range is the astonishing variety of 144 colors where you can pick absolutely any shade you can think of and any shade you are not getting in any other brand . The downside is the early fading of glossy sheen. Otherwise I found the formula reasonably good. 

My rating for the product : 4/5

So have you guys tried Nail paints from NYX. Which is your favorite nailpaint brand ? Would love to hear all about it. Till then,
