Review | LYN Nails - Colors Galore
What's colorful, fun, long lasting and light on the pocket? Well, we are talking about a super cool Nail Enamel brand that hit the Indian market earlier this year. LYN (Live Your Now) Nails, originally launched globally 13 years back, is a fun and trendy nail enamel line. It was officially launched in India during the Nailathon in Mumbai this year. Since I missed the event held during the Nailathon in January, I made up my mind to not miss the pampering session organised for us at the Juice salon and nail bar by the folks at LYN last month. While we got a chance to try the relaxing mani-pedi and then, choose from an array of nail colors to experiment with some nail art, we also decided to sample some of their other shades and review it for you.
Product: LYN (Live Your Now) Nail Enamel
Price: Rs 350
What it promises: The Live Your Now team has worked closely with an expert formulator based in France to create a revolutionary high defination nail lacquer that promises to give you nothing less than pure color perfection. These lacquers have been formulated with pigments that reveal their true brightness and vividness for ultimate wear. LYN salon quality nail lacquers glide on like satin, dries fast and are available in 100 gorgeous shades!
Texture: Very smooth. True to its word, it does glide on quite smoothly.
Application: The nail enamel pot's brush is a fine, sturdy one, which makes the application hassle free and holds enough nail paint without dripping.
Our experience: LYN spoils you for choice when it comes to selecting a shade. During my first experience at the event, we had the option of choosing from the available nail art designs or flipping through the additional options from their catalog on the iPad. After selecting a combination of pink and gold, the base coat was used, which is a good product for its price. Next, the nail enamel was used and I must say, the application was very smooth. The first coat itself had a satiny finish and needless to say, the second coat brought out the true color of the enamel beautifully. In the end, the top coat ensures a glossy finish and makes sure the color holds on for long. The same happened during our second and third trial at home. In case you are experimenting with multiple colors (or nail art), beware, as drying your nails might require more time. Otherwise, two coats of a single nail color dries off quite quickly. During all the three trials, the color lasted for 5-7 days.
What works: - Since LYN falls into the same category as other leading nail enamel brands, we like the pricing. It is the same amount that you will pay for the Lakme Gel Stylist or Revlon Parfumerie range. And for the kind of variety that you get, LYN definitely has an upper hand
- The texture is definitely our favorite pro of this item
- Apart from colors, you also have tons of metallic and shimmer options to choose from
- Both of Base Coat and Top Coat do their job well; the Top Coat a little more.
What doesn't: - Right now, the availability is a tiny issue. LYN Nail Enamel is available at Juice salon outlets and on e-commerce sites like Purplle.com and Nykaa.com.
Verdict: If you are looking at experimenting with new shades, trying a different color everyday or are just plain bored with the ones available in the market, we suggest you give LYN nail enamel a shot! Highly recommended for its variety, finish and brilliant texture. With tempting colors like Evagreen, No Morning Blues, and sexy shimmers like Mauve The Merrier; you will definitely want to buy em all!
