A few months back, Nykaa had released a range of nailcare products specially formulated to provide nourishment to the nails. I recently tried out the 7-in-1 Nail Spa from the range, which claims to provide the following 7 benefits to the nails – Strength, Hardening, Protection, Smoothing, Hydration, Nutrition, and Shine. Read on to find out whether this product lived up to my expectations or not.
The Nykaa 7-in-1 Nail Spa is basically a slightly translucent, milky nail polish that provides a “My nails but better” look with two coats. It can be worn on its own or under another polish as a base coat. The formula is not thick, spreads easily on the nail and provides some shine too. It has a mild fruity scent which is quite pleasant. The formula contains Acetyl-Methionine and Keratin-like Peptide to prevent breakage and Hexanal to harden the nails. It also contains amino acids to stimulate growth, vitamin E and violet extracts for hydration, and argan and Baobab oils for nourishment.
While I have never suffered from growth issues, I do experience chipping of the upper parts of my nails quite frequently. After using this nail paint, my nails have not chipped or broken at all, and I am pretty pleased about it. Additionally, when used as a base coat, this nail product extends the life of nail paints by at least 2 days.
Overall, I am satisfied with this product purely because it strengthened my nails and prevented breakage. While it does provide a nice shine too, I personally prefer using it as a base coat, so the shine is lost on me. Priced at INR 249, this product is definitely worth the buy if you are suffering from weak nails that are prone to breakage.
