Nails Nails Nails !! The so-called weapon of a girl 😀 . Honestly, I am not too much into nail arts but which girl on this planet says no to paint her nails if she has good colored nail enamel handy? No one, right? To bring glitters and shines to my today’s post I thought to review a glitter-based nail enamel that I received in my June 2015 Fabbag from the brand CUCCIO Colour in “Manhattan Mayhem”, read on to know how it fared-Price- INR 675/- for 13ml
About- Cuccio Colour™ Professional Nail Lacquer is formulated with Triple Pigmentation Technology for rich coverage in one coat and true coverage in two coats. For the Love of Colour™ contains no DBP or toluene.How to use- On bare nails, apply a coat and let it dry completely. Apply another coat as top coat.
My take on Cuccio Colour Manhattan Mayhem- This nail enamel from Cuccio comes in a very sturdy glass bottle, and the size of the bottle is good enough, I think I dont have any nail-enamel of this size in my kitty already. The shade I received is a beautiful red with red and silver glitters inside which makes it very much wearable for outings in evening or night. This shade is surely gonna pop out your nails even in a boring outfit. The bottle at a glance looks highly pigmented but one coat doesn’t give good coverage and hence second coat has to be applied to make the nail-enamel show up just like how it looks inside the bottle and give hands a party-like look. Since this nail-enamel comes with a high price tag, I expected much out of the brush applicator, but it was a regular thin brush and nothing extraordinary.I like how quickly it dries off, the staying power is what disappointed me the most, it looks beautiful on hands but it starts chipping off in less than 2 days if no top-coat is used. For those who are into household activities, this is surely a skip! It will chip off like crazy when you are washing clothes, utensils or any other thing. This is a beautiful shade but its staying power is a big turn off considering the price its being sold off in India! The finish is quite like Maybelline Colorshow Glitter Mania range but they have more matte finish than this. Here’s my NOTD using the same-What I like about Cuccio Colour Manhattan Mayhem-
