Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish Tomato Tango

Now usually , anything called ” Tomato- Anything’ will make me run far far away. I dont understand them in salads, i dont get them in a bloody mary, and i don get how people can eat them raw . They give me this squishy, ick feeling and the only time tomatoes are acceptable to me are in pizza’s, pasta’s , facials, and now this Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish called ‘Tomato Tango ‘ !

Okay first of all let me tell you this is my new favourite formula of polishes. These are SOOO good ! Im not even the kind of girl who gushes and goes like ‘OMG you guys, that lip balm was AHMAZING it changed my LIIFEE ‘  types but these really are ! They are super super glossy, opaque in two coats and they maintain their uber glossyness over the course of 4 days.  There is also something super fun about applying these- they have this gel like consistency that just spreads smoothly and you are done in a jiffy! You will see tip wear by Day 2-3 but these dont chip until Day 5 so if you are planning a trip going trekking or something – these Lakme Absolute Gel Stylists need to be stashed away  in your rucksack !

Coming to the color- its a regular, sheeny orangey red . The name tomato tango is pretty appropriate actually! I just think its the glossyness and finish that elevates this from a regular red polish to a stunning one. They also have a gorgeous neon pink in this which i tried on my trip to Mumbai for Lakme Fashion Week 2013 !

Verdict: A

Price: Rs 400/-

Recommendation: These Lakme Absolute Gel Stylists have a super finish, are super glossy and last over 4 days with minimal tip wear. I really like these polishes, and though i definitely think they could have been priced more competitively (You get OPI for 80 bucks more), i have to give credit where due. These are pretty great, even though the glossyness can become dull after 4 days…most polishes dont even last 4 days so yay!

The colour looks great, and the finish is glossy, which is a good thing! However, it is a little pricey for a Lakme product.

This is such a lovely colour :)
I need to get one of these !!

Since red is my favourite colour…. this seems awesome…

However, they are a little pricey indeed…

It looks so amazing on your nails! Loved the bright colour.. I run away from tomatoes too..except in soups and ketchup :D

Love the colour, I also like some of the pinks in this range.

I love tomatoes.. especially tomato chutney :) That could be cos I love tangy food :)
the nail polish.. Wow! So shiny.. The colour looks soo good..
But 400.. A little too much.. For someone like me who doesn’t even wear
a nail polish regularly, 400 would be a little expensive..

oohh looks amazing. I have coral rush and I absolutely love that shade. I love the glossy effect they give. On me they survive for a more than a week.


sakhi October 29, 2013 at 12:06 pm

A bold and beautiful color


Krithi October 29, 2013 at 1:23 pm

This shade is a must have ! looks lovely on your nails!

I tried these but was disappointed because the quality is not worth the money they are a little better than regular nail polishes … But the colors are gorgeous… They chipped off in just 2 days:(


Supria October 29, 2013 at 5:55 pm

Gorgeous colour! I tried a random grey shade in store one day and was appalled because it did not go on like a gel polish should, very thin and runny! Looks like I should have given these one more try.


Faiqa October 29, 2013 at 8:47 pm

the shade is very pretty.


Tiny October 30, 2013 at 1:11 pm

So pretty and glossy <3
but bit exp for me :(


Jyoti October 31, 2013 at 5:04 pm

Very bold and beautiful color :)

Not at all good. Chipped off in just 3 days….Lakme products are really not up to the mark. The lipsticks stink as well after six odd months. Over time they seem to just increase price. OPI is really great….worth the money you spend.
