In their Argan Oil range, Lakme has recently added new foundation, serum, cream, matte lipsticks, and nail color remover. As I am always into nail colors, I was immediately drawn toward their new Nourishing Nail Color Remover with Argan Oil. Moreover, this is the season for dark nail colors, which ultimately means yellow nails. So, I thought of keeping my nails nourished with this nourishing nail color remover. Read on to find out how it fared on me.

My Experience with Lakme Absolute Nourishing Nail Color Remover with Argan Oil
Packaging: This nail color remover comes in an opaque black glass bottle with a golden screw-up cap. The gold letters against the completely glossy black bottle make the packaging stand out. All the necessary information, except the ingredients list, is provided on the bottle. The packaging being a glass bottle does not make it travel friendly. Also, the opaque packaging makes it hard to figure out the quantity of the product available.
Texture: The texture of this nail color remover is loaded with oil. It has an acetone free formula and is infused with argan oil. It is not so liquidy and does not evaporate. It has a very strong smell, not chemical though, but it is quite unpleasant for me.
Performance: This nail color remover is so gentle on the nails. Its oil content nourishes the cuticles and nails. I feel there is nothing special in this nail color remover as it removes nail colors just like other nail color removers. Extra effort is needed to remove glitter nail colors. Only if a large quantity of this remover is used, nail colors can be removed effortlessly. However, it is not a free-flowing remover and does not soak up the cotton ball easily. Moreover, for the price it comes, using up so much quantity may not be economical. It leaves behind a coat of oil on the nails and cuticles. Unfortunately, once it is wiped off to apply nail color, my nails feel dry, and there is also white residue, which is disappointing in a nourishing nail color remover. I did not find any change in reducing the yellowness as well. I find Kara Nail Polish Remover Wipes working best. Overall, I am not happy with its performance.
