Hello Beautiful,
I get thrilled whenever there is a new nail product launch in a drugstore brand. Be it Maybelline Go Graffiti or the Color Show Range. These drugstore brands have one thing is common, affordable price range and good stuff, if not outstanding. Sometime back Lakme had launched a range of nail colors which were unique in terms of texture. Today I will review one such shade which I chose to buy. It’s the Lakme 9 to 5 Frosties in the shade Pink Frost.

See it Through my Eyes
Now a days nails can grab a lot of eye balls, if you know the tricks to grab that attention. Nail art for one is the best option, but everyone doesn’t have the time or creativity. To ease out these things, these brands have found a new way to make it simpler to apply yet attract attention.  The Frosties is one such example. It doesn’t ask you to do anything, but just paint your nails and see the difference. Isn’t that exciting?

The Lakme Frosties are housed in a round cylindrical glass nail paint bottle. The cap is typically screw open in metallic finish. The bottle is quite big at 9 ml and fat, as per my liking. The shade name is mentioned at the base on stick on and onthe cap’s neck The other details of expiry, manufacturing is mentioned at the back of the bottle.

The texture is as described frosted on application, in other words its gritty and bubbled up. I am so addicted to the texture, its not funny. I keep on brushing my fingers on the nails throughout the day. Its just what I was looking for, something different and unique. The other day, I had visited the Sally Hansen counter and was shocked to see a similar range of nail paints called Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Textured Nail Color priced at Rs 460 double the price of Lakme Frosties. Coincidently, I was wearing this shade that day, the SA thought I was wearing the Sally Hansen Sugar Coat. She was surprised to know what I was wearing and the price I got it for. So, girls just imagine the quality offered. Kudos to Lakme for this one.

Lasting Power
The lasting power is pretty amazing; it stayed on me for a week with minimal chipping on the tips. Though I had worn a top coat over it.

The shade is oh! so pretty. This sure is an attention grabber, I got so many compliments about the shade and how it suited me so well. The other shade in this range are equally beautiful. This is an intense warm coral shade in two coats, while a beautiful coral hue in one single coat.  This shade is pretty flattering on the Indian skin tone. I don’t know why they have named it “Pink” Frost, I beg to differ this is Coral and not Pink.

Color Pay off
I am simply surprised as to how pigmented these are. One coat is enough to give that desired color and opacity. The texture comes out beautifully on a single coat. But me being the greedy me, applied a second coat. The texture slightly got smoother. The frostiness reduces as you go on layering it. It’s better to apply just one coat, to get the true frosted look. Only if you are satisfied by the opacity and color pay off.

What I like about Lakme 9 to 5 Frosties Pink Frost

  • Very attractive shade.
  • Thick formulation gives that rich appearance.
  • Goes opaque in one coat.
  • The frost/texture is so addictive, play with my nails all day long.
  • Stays on long. (5 to 6 days with minimal chipping on the tips)
  • Good quantity of 9 ml.
  • Available easily online and at the counter.
  • Dupe of Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Nail Color.

What I don’t like about Lakme 9 to 5 Frosties Pink Frost

  • On application of top coat, the frost reduces to a great extent.
  • Little expensive, but am not complaining for what I get.
  • Takes a little effort while removing.

Recommendation: Oh Yes!
