My views on Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish in Electric Orange:

I had heard about Gel Nail Polishes, but never really tried them because the whole thing is very expensive. I first read it on some blog. A lot of brands have come up with gel nail polishes and one such brand is from Lakme. I actually did not buy it mainly because of the price, I wasn't too happy to spend 400 bucks for lakme polish. Don't get me wrong I somehow never liked their nail polishes much. They chipped of in just 2 days.. But I still decided to try the Gel Stylist range...

Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist in Electric Orange is a nice bright orange and looks pretttyyyyyy on both hands and toes! These I find like most nail polishes but these are a bit more thicker and application is pretty easy types no bubbles. The finish is very glossy but nothing out of the world kind. OPI's normal nail polishes give this glossy effect so I am not too impressed on that. 

Since the nail polish is thick, it takes its own sweet time to dry and that is annoyingggg! I actually ended up with messy nails the first time i applied but now i have learnt my lesson the hard way. I let it dry for 25-30 mins and then it was good. The Glossy effect lasts for 3-4 days and then it becomes pretty dull and chips off a lil bit... see i told you these are good but not awesome.

I like the packaging of Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist, its big and reminds me a lot of OPI nail polishes. The  brush is quite large and application is very easy with this. The nail polish is opaque in just one coat but I feel with 2 coats it gives a more glossier finish.

Pros:

1. I quite like the packaging, the brush is big an that makes application a bit easy.
2. Goes opaque in just one coat.
3. Gives a glossy finish for 3-4 days and then they look like normal polishes.
4. Chipping is considerably less.. mostly normal nail polishes chip of in just 2 days.
5. The color is gorgeous.

Cons:

1. Price! Oh c'mon these are not Gel nail polishes but slightly better than regular ones but not worth 400!
2. Glossy finish vanishes in just 4 days :/

Recommendation:

Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist are slightly better than regular nail polishes but no where close to Gel nail polishes. These give a glossy finish for 3-4 days and considerably chip less. I would probably not pick any more nail paints in this range.
