Nordic Cap of Sweden Star Nails in NP 20 Review & Swatches

By Tuesday, December 22, 2015 , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing a nail paint that I picked up on one of my grocery shopping trip. This is a fairly new line I think, I could be totally wrong but I took notice of this few months back only. They have nail paints, lipstick, lip glosses and body care products. I wanted to try out something from the line but kept forgetting to do so. This time around I went in with a friend so it was bound to happen . We looked around did a bit of swatching and decided on trying the nail paints first. I picked up two nail paints NP 20 and NP 24. Let see how it fares out.

Price: 1.5 USD

As far as the packaging is considered it comes in a square glass bottle with black cap.

Nordic Cap of Sweden Star Nails in NP 20 is a dark emerald green shade. The texture of this polish is quite creamy and smooth. Nicely pigmented but two coats are needed for the perfect look. Have nice glossy finish. Brush is a standard nail polish brush round and cut straight at top. Not a big fan of the brush. As far as the staying power is concerned its very good. Without any top coat it stayed strong for three days with slight fading and minor chipping around the edges and by the end of the fourth day it chipped a little more but nothing horrendous. Glossy effect stayed good for 2 days but started wearing of by third day. With a base coat and a top coat the wear time definitely improves and you can easily get 5-6 days of wear out of it which is quite impressive. Generally nail paints don’t last that long on me and I was not expecting this one will last this long. I would have been okay if it lasted for even 2-3 days so I am quite happy with my purchase. 

The Good:
  • Nicely Pigmented
  • Smooth and Glossy finish
  • Staying Power
  • Nice shade range
  • Not streaky
  • Quantity
  • Affordable
The Bad:
  • Not a fan of the brush
I am pleasantly surprised with the nail paint and didn't expect it would this good. Some of the more expensive nail polishes didn't last this long on me and this is so inexpensive. I am definitely getting more nail paint shades and will get the lipsticks as well.

This is how it looks on 5th day
