My Experience With Lotus Herbals Color Dew Nail Enamel 915 Desert Drizzle:
Packaging: The nail lacquer comes in a long cylindrical glass bottle which is quite sturdy and competent in handling falls if you are careless like me. The cap is a blackish silver with a long conical shape that has an applicator attached. The long handle helps really well in application. The body of the product is slim and very easy to carry during traveling. Overall, the packaging stands out on its own and looks good too.
Applicator Brush: The applicator brush, as mentioned before, is long and very useful while applying the color. The bristles are closely packed, soft and work smoothly on both long and short nails without a glitch. No matter how careless you are or how many coats you want to go for, the lacquer just won't smear, have bubbles or form streaks. This is the best part of this nail lacquer.
Shade: The shade Desert Drizzle is a muted brown MLBB with frosty micro shimmers. The color looks beautiful and flattering on every Indian skin tone irrespective of the complexion. It is a perfect color for office as it adds slight glossy touch without being loud at all.
Texture: The texture of the nail polish is glossy frosty finish. The consistency of the nail enamel is perfect – neither runny nor thick and hence it is pretty much workable when you are in a hurry. The shine and gloss are decent but not something which you get in a gel finish. The nail polish is completely safe as they are Acetone, DBP, and Toluene free and doesn't leave a yellowish cast on the nails.
Pigmentation: For a light nail lacquer, the pigmentation is worth mentioning. With just 1 coat, it gives 80% opacity and I generally prefer wearing a second coat for that complete opaque look. It dries off pretty quickly than any other nail polish too.
Staying Power: The staying power is good but not great when worn alone. It stays on my nails for 3-4 days and after that I notice it chipping around the corners. The story is different when I apply a top coat and then it stays put for almost a week.
Dupe: The nail polish has an exact dupe which is the Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Silk Stockings that has already been reviewed here. Between both the shades, I would definitely go for this one for the impeccable quality it delivers.

I absolutely love this range and would definitely recommend Lotus Herbals Color Dew for the perfect quality they deliver. They also have a variety of shades and very recently they also added some new ones along with a little price hike. For this particular shade, go for it if you like frosty MLBB.
