Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel in shade Black Cherry Pie- 08

Hi my lovely souls…

I am back with the product reviews and today I will be reviewing Nailpaint from Nykaa. This nailpaint was launched by Nykaa last year and I really wanted to try a shade in black which I have never done that before. I came across this pretty shade which was Black Cherry Pie and as it was pretty reasonable, so I thought to give it a try as even if I didn’t like shade, I won’t feel bad as it was quite reasonable in price considered other brand.

Price- INR. 179 for 9ml

My Experience with Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel in shade Black Cherry Pie-

Nykaa has launched their 12 shade in square shaped glass bottle with a black color cap on it which looks good but won’t say attractive. They have also given little matte touch to outer glass of bottle which gives you effect of matte nailpaint and somewhere it resembles to color of that shade. I was much excited to try this shade as it the first time, I was going to try a black shade but hold on this shade surprised me.

The texture of the nailpaint was having a spur of berry tint into it. It’s consistency of product was good, neither too thick nor too thin. The brush was good enough to cover the nail evenly. It’s application on nails was smooth, comfortably and easy giving matte finish to it.

When I applied first coat of this shade it gave me dark maroon berry color but as it was having matte finish I was little disappointed as it was not looking great on first coat. It was giving more of dull finish, but the best part is it dried quickly. So, I applied second coat on my nails and was damn happy to see the after effect. I was impressed that my nails dried quickly within a minute plus it gave me the perfect black matte finish with a berry tint to it. After application of two coats you will see black cherry color and not pure black color. In short, what they named product, they stood on that. I really loved shade after the second coat as it was bold matte color and was not hurting my eyes in fact it made my fingers looks more prettier than before.

On my nails, Shine stayed up too two days and after that it was giving a dull finish and being a matte color it looks duller. It purely stayed up to 3 days on my nails even after doing all household chores and then it started clipping off. I would like to mention one more point here is that even after removing nailpaint it didn’t turn yellow which was great otherwise there are nailpaint of good brand which make your nails turn yellow plus make it look duller.

Overall, I liked the shade very much. I would recommend this shade to everyone and now I am pretty confident on this range/ brand and soon will try different shades. Its reasonable and value for money product. Teenager, college going gals and working ladies can try out this shade and range of shades from this brand as it does not burn your pockets.
