Pantone Color of the Year is a symbolic color selection of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude. For the first time, Pantone has declared two shades—“Rose Quartz” and “Serenity”—as the Pantone Color of the Year 2016. According to Pantone, “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” For us to enjoy this color combo, Nykaa has introduced “Pantone Combo” nail paints. So why wait?

My Experience with Nykaa Pantone Color of the Year Combo Nail Paints Rose Quartz and Serenity
Packaging: These nail paint come in a small square glass bottle. They have quite a long, thin black handle, giving a firm grip to hold and paint the nails. The brush also comes just in right thickness, neither thin nor dense. Though the packaging looks simple, they have a classy feel. They are indeed sturdy and travel friendly.
Texture: The texture of these nail paints is thin but not runny. They apply smoothly and give an opaque finish in two coats. They have a subtle, muted sheen to them and give a gel nail effect. I quite like the formula. Moreover, they are free from toluene, DBP, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor, which is awesome.
Performance: These nail paints are perfect for this spring season. They do not apply streaky and dry pretty fast. The best part is that there will be no bed sheet marks with these nail paints on. Their non-glossy and gel-like finish prettifies our nails instantly. The pricing of INR 179 is quite comfortable as well. Both the colors look great individually and in combination. Pamper your nails in the weekend, and your nails are sorted for the whole upcoming week. Yes, these nail paints stay well for 5–6 days with minimal chipping. This kind of staying power on someone who does all household chores is incredible. Although there will be no color fading, the sheen vanishes in few days of application. They are very easy to remove and absolutely give no discoloration to the nails. No base or top coat is required. Overall, an easy-to-use, long-wear, sophisticated nail paints.
Rose Quartz (Shade No. 27): This is a soft pastel shade that seeps with the lightest of rose hues. It adds a lot of feminism to the nails. It is definitely one of the prettiest pastel shades I have used. My love for pinks always took a backseat when it comes to nail paints as they do make my hands look a little darker, but this shade looks amazing on my nails. Two coats bring out good pigmentation.
Serenity (Shade No. 69): This is a sky-hued blue, one of the best summer shades that I have ever seen. It looks very refreshing and summery too. I just love it on my nails. It just lifts up your look to another level. This adorable color will suit all skin tones. Although it delivers one-stroke coverage, two coats give that perfectly manicured nails look.
