Lakme is one of the most popular and budgeted makeup and skin care brands in India. Each one of us began their journey of makeup with Lakme before we got obsessed with brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, NYX, Morphe, etc. Surprisingly, I hardly tried any of the Lakme nail products. I was mostly into Maybelline, Nykaa, and few other brands and this is why I was so excited to try out the Long Wear Nail Color from Lakme which I received in my Diva Likes haul. The color I am going review today is called Saffron Space and it is one of the recently launched ones. Here's an elaborate review on the same.

My Experience With Lakme 9 to 5 Long Wear Nail Color Saffron Space:

Packaging and Applicator: I have always adored the Lakme 9 to 5 packaging and this one is another pretty one from the range. The nail lacquer comes in a clear cylindrical thick glass with a metallic rose gold screw cap. The screw cap has the applicator attached to it. The color can be easily spotted through the transparent glass. The bottle, though made of glass, is quite sturdy and efficient and has survived one or two falls as well. The applicator has proper bristles and spreads the product on the nails quite nicely. Overall, I really liked the packaging.
Shade: The shade Saffron Space is a beautiful creamy bright saffron color. It is the perfect color for spring-summer and brightens up the hand quite well. The color would suit a wide range of skin tones and looks very feminine. Considering the range is targeted for office-goers, the color is very young, wearable in office and nothing obnoxiously bold at all. It is not a common color and adds a fresh look to the hands.

Pigmentation: The pigmentation is not very impressive for the creamy color. In the first coat, it is absolutely sheer and uneven. It requires minimum three layers for the color to look even and proper.
Texture: I didn't like the texture of the nail polish at all. It goes on very streaky and uneven and with two proper thick layers, it has the habit of separating on the nails, giving an untidy look. The consistency is very thin and requires three coatings of the color. Also, the nail polish has the tendency to stain the nails very badly. My nails were totally yellow after few days of wearing this color and this why I didn't like the texture and formula of the nail enamel. The finish is glossy. The glossiness stays for a couple of days and the sheen vanishes thereafter.
Staying Power: The staying power of the nail enamel is around 3-4 days. After that, it starts to chip from the corners. With top coat, it lasts for a couple of days more. Considering the price tag, I expected a better quality from Lakme.
