Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish in Mint Julep | Review & Swatches

Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish Mint Julep

I am a very messy at applying nail polish. I manage to get them streaky, clumpy, uneven, and all this very easily. I also tend to bang and scrape my hand against various surfaces, thus hurting myself numerous times a day and managing to chip my nail polishes easily. For all of this I tend not to be keen on nail polishes, but I do love painting my nails. On one of my random shopping sprees I picked up a gorgeous mint nail polish – Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish Mint Julep.

My Experience with Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish Mint Julep

Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail polish in Mint Julep is a pretty muted mint green. I say muted because the shade is lighter than other mint shades I have come across. The polish is slightly towards the streaky side, at least this shade is. Using a base coat helps here. The brush is big and it is easy to paint over each nail. Since, I am messy at applying nail polish I used a water-glue mixture outside my nail to avoid as much as unwanted polish as possible. The pigmentation of this shade is good. 2 coats are all you need to get an opaque effect. I have seen the polish last close to week though it starts looking dull after 2-3 days. The gloss also takes long to dry. The biggest con is see is the price bracket – 400 bucks for a nail polish is expensive. I wish it were cheaper and the shade a little deeper. I am not sure if I will pick up another Absolute Gel nail polish but it is worth trying once.

    1. Some of Lakme’s products are quite high priced that sometimes I think I’ll add a little extra and buy MAC instead. But you got to agree, the shade is pretty.
