Hello Gurlzzz! 🙂
Today I have come with a post on a great product from Lakme. Lakme is undoubtedly one of the most preferred cosmetics brands in India and all over the world. It is one of those brands which consistently releases reliable products that are available in a variety of colors and fragrances and this one is an all time classic! Say hello to Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Grape Blossom.

My Analysis of Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Grape Blossom
My nails look really bright wearing this nail color and I did get a lot of compliments donning this shade of Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist. This product makes my hand look really elegant and I like it a lot! The drying time was around 7 to 8 minutes on my nails which is a bit longer than the Revlon and Maybelline Color Show nail polishes that I had used earlier (you’ll find the links down below 🙂 ). The wear time is around a week, which is pretty decent and after that it slowly starts coming off from the tip of my nails.
Color, Texture and Fragrance
Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist has a dark purple color that makes my nails look really sophisticated and stylish. The color is bright and not at all opaque. The texture is creamy and it glides smoothly over my nails. The finish has a high-gloss factor and you will get that sort of a satin look which is pretty attractive. The fragrance of this product is like any other nail polish.
I think the applicator is a bit thick and it is a bit difficult to keep the color away from your cuticle. This thickness leads to a compromise in terms of flexibility of the brush. So, this is something that I think Lakme must work upon. This product took two swipes for me to get the color that you see in the picture. One swipe will not get you that bright glossy look, and I think two swipes are required.
The Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Grape Blossom is packaged in a glass bottle with a pretty broad base. The packaging is quite efficient and is no different from other nail polishes.
My Final Word
I like using Lakme products and I liked Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Grape Blossom also. The color is shiny and glossy. It will give your nails a metallic finish. The wear time is pretty decent and the drying time is a tiny bit longer than the other brands that I have used. The main disadvantage that I have experienced is with the applicator as I find it very thick and thus compromising a lot on flexibility. I will not buy this the next time as I would like to try out more shades and look for a variety of other nail polishes. But that mustn’t stop you from buying it though 🙂 🙂
