Streetwear Quick Dry Nail polish - Girly Pink



Hello Garrrlllss!!!!


Looks like I have caught "pink fever" recently.. I have been buying a lot of pink shades recently.. Pinks, Violets, Purples are the shades that I have been buying for the last 1 month!!! Please do let me know if you feel the shades and reviews to be monotonous and any specific shade range you'd like me to swatch!!!

 I was actually surfing through Urban Touch's site and I found a new range of Street wear nail polishes.. I am not sure how long they have been under existence, but didn't want to miss them when they caught my attention.. I love fast dry nail polishes because I don't have to sit hours together for my manicure to dry  for me to carry on with my daily chores... So, I ordered two shades namely Girly Pink and Cute Pink!!! Both pink :P

Shade: Girly Pink


Girly Pink
Firstly, I loved the name "Girly Pink and so do I love all girly stuff.. I am sure girls love pink :) But when I received the order Iwas kind of shocked.. It was such a bright pink that I have never worn in my life time.. Not the one that I expected !! A big con of online shopping!! Anyways, let's proceed with the review.


Girly Pink


I was a little skeptical about wearing it because the color looked a little gaudy in indoor light. But wanted to give it a try..  So, please see for yourself for how it looks on me and let me know your comments...






The price of this nail polish is 140 INR

Initially, I thought it would be like the usual plum/mauve shades and was not too happy about it.. Because I had lots of similar shades.. But when I swatched it, that's when I realized that this shade is something new... So, a new surprise shade.. I love it!

Here's one more:


I totally loved the shade, though I received some comments at work stating the shade is way too bright and eye-catching.. Well, by now you all should be knowing that I really don't care for such comments :)


I know I have been talking on and on about the shade but never spoke about the wow feature that made me buy this nail polish!!!

Yup, You got it right ~ The Quick Dry Formula!! I should say that streetwear has done real good job. This product lives to its claims!! I am starting to love Street wear nail polishes once again.. I wish they never discontinued their old range!!


Like I said before, this shade is too bright in fluorescence.. Let's see how this looks under a tube light, with flash on! Now I would call it a Rani Pink Color..

Under Fluorescence

Let's talk about the Yay and Nay factors!!!

The Yay's:

<3 The quick dry formula really works.
<3 Affordable and less expensive when compared to quick dry polishes of other brands.
<3 Nice color selection.
<3 Gives creamy and glossy finish.
<3 Intense color .

The Nay's

:( I haven't seen them at the local stores yet, availability may be an issue.
:( It chips pretty fast.. It stayed on for 2 days and started chipping (with a top coat)..  Might not be long lasting without a top coat
:( I wish the brush was a little longer with nice and flat brush ( a personal choice)

Overall, I am happy with this product as this one did serve the actual purpose of being Quick Dry.. I will rate it 3/5. Not a must have, but you can give it a try


Before we  wrap up, I have one other good news to share..

I got my second blog award!! This time it was from Puja Malhotra of Cute Nails!! Most of you would be knowing her ( Does she need an introduction?).  She is a Diva of Nail Art!!!

For those who don't know her, let's see something about Puja in her own words ( Flicked it from her "about me" column)


"I am trained nail artist and mother of 4 year old girl...... I own my own nail art studio and do nail art professionally and teaches nail art"

Now about Puja in my own words!!

Pu (that's how I call her) is a Nail Art Guru!!!! Very talented and creative.. Her nail art ideas are mind blowing... I adore her for following her dreams.. She is very encouraging, visits my blog almost everyday and marks her presence by a sweet comment.. I value her support and friendship , especially at my blog's budding stage :)  I love you Pu and thanks for this award!! You know how much this means to me!!!


This is the award I received from her.

 

I would pass on this award to:
