Review: Lotus Herbals ColourDEW Nail Enamel in Candy Drop

I won the Lotus Herbals Mother’s day contest and they sent me a hamper. The hamper contained Lotus nail paints and I must admit that I am in love. Not puppy love but true, everlasting love. These nail paints are that awesome!Check out the swatch below. My apologies for the blurriness. It is a phone camera.


Lotus Herbals ColourDEW Nail Enamel in Candy Drop

What Lotus Says
ColourDEW™ is a range of 10 exciting Nail enamels all together in a new packaging. Natural and safe, Acetone, DBP and toluene free, Fast drying, Flat and sturdy brush. Smooth application

What I Think   
I got strawberry shake in the hamper and within 2 days I bought Candy Drop. Both shades have amazing pigmentation coz one swipe gives decent coverage and dry in a jiffy! Perfect for those who are always rushing or running after a toddler!
Don’t even get me started on the lasting power. I went 5 days without a single chip wit strawberry sparkle! F.I.V.E whole days… a boon for lazies like me who do their nails once a fortnight or only on special occasions!

What it Costs
Used to be 99 a pop for the longest time. Now, they have increased the prices to INR 110. This still goes cheaper than Lakme Absolute and Colorbar. Though at par with regular Lakme and Maybelline Colorama, the quality beats them by a long shot!
The Good
  1. Amazing Pigmentation
  2. Great Formula
  3. Applies like a dream. No Streaks!
  4. Awesome Lasting Power. Really… this is the duracell of nail paints 🙂
The Bad
  1. The long handle makes it difficult to fit in boxes and drawers. I have been storing mine horizontally 🙁
  2. Availability is an issue with all Lotus Colour Cosmetics
The Ugly
Ugly? What Ugly?
