Hey BFFs,

This post is long due & the product has been also launched a year back & there are a lot of reviews of the same is available online. However, I still want to blog about it as my views are a bit different & I want to jot it down here. So keep reading till the end if you want to know that this product is worth it or not.

My Experience with Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Strawberry Shortcake 139:
The packaging of the product is pretty good with the matte finish which matches the theme of the product also. The color is pretty fuchsia tone with the matte finish. The applicator brush is of decent length which helps in applying it nicely to the nails. One coat will give decent finish without any streakiness for this shade but however if you want an opaque color then apply two coats of this. It takes a minute to dry if its single coat & 2 minutes if it the double coat. If you don’t let it dry completely & start rubbing it then it may smudge out. It gives a matte finish look to the nail. However, after 2-3 days it becomes glossy & that matte look is gone from it. It remains on the nails for up to 4-5 days without the wear & tear. It doesn't chips off in layers but it chips off on the tips of nails due to the friction of wear & tear.
The only thing which I highly don’t like is strong acetone smell when you open the bottle. I have shifted to nail removing wipes because I don’t like the smell of the acetone & this nail paint contains the same smell. It goes off after some hours but still, it’s really very strong compared to other nail paints from other brands.
The shelf time of this nail paints is longer than the Maybelline color show range. I am using the Nykaa matte nail enamel since last year & the consistency of the same is not changed till date. I will give full marks for it as I can finish it off completely without drying up it quickly.

Pros of Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Strawberry Shortcake 139:

·        Long wear time
·        It doesn’t dry up quickly
·        Very beautiful shade
·        The packaging is very good

Cons of Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Strawberry Shortcake 139:
·        Strong acetone smell
·        It loses it matte finish after 3-4 days
·        A bit pricey considering the quality it comes with.

BFF Rating: 3/5

Final Verdict on Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Strawberry Shortcake 139:
I like the color selection of this range & particularly this color but the strong acetone smell is a big turn off. I will try the new launches from Nykaa as they keep launching new verities in their nail range.
