Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Nails FANTASY | Frosted Baby Pink | New Lakme Nail Polish Collection

Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Nails FANTASY swatch review

I am quite happy to see Lakme grow by leaps and bounds every year. More happy to see the interesting limited edition collection that Lakme launches during Fashion Weeks. This year, Lakmé unveiled at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort’14 Grand Finale, the statement for the season, showcased by Rajesh Pratap Singh.

Lakme Absolute Illusion comprises of eight metallic shimmer eyeshadow monos which can be worn wet or dry (Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Pearl Eyeshadow priced at Rs.750) and four limited edition nail colors (Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Nails priced at Rs.200).

Here is what I found at Lakme's website - 

Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Nails

Description - Dramatic mirage to bedazzled daydream, 4 colors to create the perfect Illusion this season.

Key Features - 
Easy application
Brilliant metallic hues
Available in 4 shades


BTW, I can bet on one thing - there is a person at the shade-naming-department of Lakme (I hope there is a division as fancy as that!) where a person attaches pink with Fantasy! Do you remember the Fantasy collection by Lakme (back in Spring '11)? They launched some beautiful pink nail polishes - 250 and 252 which are sadly discontinued. I really miss them. 

Anyhow, I picked the frosted pink nail polish from the Lakme Absolute Illusion collection and no points for guessing that they named it 'Fantasy'


Lakme Fantasy is a frosted baby pink which is sheer in formula. You will need around three coats to make it opaque. The brush is the same as Absolute range - broad and almost covers the nail in one stoke. I have worn it for three days without any signs of fading around tips or chipping. All in all, I like these. But, I do wish that the formula was a bit thinner and more opaque.

Left is under sunlight and right is taken in shade. I am doing this under and without Sun after a long time because the shade looks very different this way.

Overall - Another great color by Lakme which does not fade and remains radiant for 3 days straight. I am yet to wear for longer than that. The price is a bit high at Rs 200 but now almost all polishes cost that much for 10ml bottles in India. There are other 3 colors from Lakme Absolute Illusion range which are also quite unique.

Keep Shining,
Shayoni
