Hey guys! It's time for the 2nd post of the swatch fest, and this time it's #92 Candy Drop, from Lotus.

I've always been a fan of these nail polishes because they are Toluene and DBP free, yet have the most amazing consistency and flawless application. And considering how they are priced, you can get them all!


The bottle is not very fancy-shmancy but I quite like the simple look of it. It's like the polish doesn't need added confetti to sell itself :) The cylindrical glass bottle is sturdy (I've dropped it a few times, and it hasn't shattered, thank god!) and leak proof. The handle of the brush is quite long as you can see, which does make storage a problem sometimes.

Coming to the shade, it's a gorgeous dusty coral pink which will flatter nearly all skintones. When I first saw it sitting on the counter, I wanted to whoop out loud, it is thaaaaat pretty! Plus, now that I'm back home, I wasted no time in trying it out on Mummy and Dadi, and yes ladies, this shade is timeless.
This kind of coral pink is muted, chic and very feminine, ideal for office wear, or formal occasions, or when you're in the mood to give your neons a rest.

Application was a dream as the consistency is medium runny. It doesn't flood your cuticles and spreads evenly. In this aspect, I personally quite like the long brushes Lotus makes. They make it very easy to maneuver around your nail bed. All in all, even nail polish novices will find the formula hassle free :)

This shade does require two thin coats to go opaque, but I have seen that the colour does not change with layering (as you may have experienced with Lakme nail polishes). It dries quickly to a glossy creme and wears well for 3 days. Beyond that you will notice a decrease in the shine, and tip erosion.

Looking at all that, I'd definitely recommend you to check this shade out, if not for yourself then for your dear Moms. It won't disappoint you, I promise!

Price: 99INR for 8ml

(Update: Luscious Berry is a great shade to check out too, especially if you want to rock the metallic trend with some colour change! And Pure Plum is a must have shade that will suit all!)
