A more sophisticated and chic vibe is the current fashion calling. If so, don’t our nails need them? Nykaa recently launched their “Nude Matte Nail Enamel Collection,” and they perfectly fall into this category. This collection consists of irresistibly beautiful 8 nude shades, catering to everyone’s liking. I love the quality and color selection of Nykaa nail paints, so I thought of giving this new collection a shot. Moreover, I have never tried matte nails so far. And I picked the shade “Nutcracker Dreams 151.” Although it took a while for me to get used to non-glossy nails, I absolutely love them now.

Ingredients: Nykaa Nude Matte nail enamel collection is “five free”: that is, these nail polishes are formulated without the three most common chemicals found in nail polishes (toluene, DBP, and formaldehyde) as well as without two other very dangerous chemicals (formaldehyde resin and camphor). However, the text “5 Free Nail Enamel,” which was present earlier on the nail polish bottle itself, is now missing.

My Experience with Nykaa Nude Matte Nail Lacquer Nutcracker Dreams 151
Packaging: This nude matte nail enamel comes in a small square matte glass bottle, representing the formula. It has 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, it has a classy feel. It is indeed sturdy and travel friendly.
Shade: “Nutcracker Dreams 151” is a beautiful pinkish-toned brown. It is a very subtle color to my dusky skin tone, making it ideal for office wear. I just love it on my nails. Moreover, it did not make my hands look darker. It is definitely one of the prettiest nude shades I have used. It adds a lot of feminism to the nails. It gives a sophisticated look. It is my first matte nail paint, and I never knew I will love matte nails so much until I used this one 😉
Texture: The texture of this nude matte nail enamel is a bit thick but dries quickly. It applies smoothly and gives an opaque finish in just one coat. It applies with usual glossy texture but dries down to a pure matte finish within seconds. I quite like the formula. Moreover, it is free from toluene, DBP, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor, which is awesome.
Performance: This nude matte nail enamel will suit all skin tones. As its name, it is a true matte nail enamel. It does not apply streaky and dries pretty fast. Its exquisite formula with rich pigments and long-lasting color gives one stroke, sheer perfection. One coat gives a smooth and gorgeous coverage. As it is quick drying, I wondered if applying second coat would make the application patchy. But no! Surprisingly, the second coat adds a stunning, plumping effect. Pamper your nails in the weekend, and your nails are sorted for the whole upcoming week. Yes, this nail paint stays good for 4–5 days. However, there will be no chipping but color fading. This kind of staying power on someone who does all household chores is incredible. This nail enamel is very easy to remove and absolutely gives no discoloration to the nails. No base coat is required. Overall, it is an easy-to-use, long-wear, sophisticated matte nail enamel.
