Faces Canada Nail Enamel Purple Rain

Faces Canada Nail Enamel Purple Rain

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own

--  these lines are going through my head as I thought of writing this post. This would be familiar to you if you like listening to Jewel. This was so popular about a decade or more ago when I was in 5th grade. Ok, make it 15 years ago!!
Now what don't we do to treat our 'small hands'? We get regular manis and put on so many colors each week to make these little hands appear attractive! For me, the brighter the color is, the happier I am.
In that bid, I had picked up this nail paint from healthkart. it was just an impulse and I couldn't resist the discount.

Looks like Faces is going to be my recent on the go brand. I am craving for plums and berries and purples this winter and and it Purple Rain-ed on me.

This is how the shade looks.

Don't judge a book by its cover. Similarly, don't judge the nail-polish by the tiny bottle! it holds 7ml of the product which comes for 99 INR ( 89 on healthkart, stylecraze,  etc).

Why I like?
  • The bottle is small and easy to carry around.
  • I did not try playing squash with it. but the bottle is sturdy
  • The brush is good.
  • Dries within a minute or two
  • Gives an opaque and even finish
  • Stays on for a long time without chipping. Say for 5 days . After which, it starts wearing off from the tip
  • comes in a variety of colors
  • Honestly, None!
If Faces doesn't get into the price-hiking competition with Lakme, it looks like it can be the NYX of India in terms of price and quality.

I would repurchase but in some other shade. ( I get bored of the same color too quickly). If you are like me who is kind of sick of nude colors and the same boring browns, maroons and babypinks corals.. etc.. you should check out these. I am looking forward to get hold of some more of these!!
