Happy Vegan Mani Monday! This week, I’m trying and reviewing another lovely vegan nail polish from 786 Cosmetics! Last time, I tried out Isfahan and was pleasantly surprised with the application and formula of this halal nail polish brand.
This time around, I’m trying out one of 786 Cosmetics’ best-selling colors, Kashmir. This stunning color was inspired by Kashmir’s traditional tea, Kashmiri chai and the pink blossoms and tulips of the Mughal Gardens.
Kashmir – 786 Cosmetics
Color: Kashmir is described as a purple dusk color with a slight pink tone.
Price: USD$12.95 on 786cosmetics.com
Formula: Opaque. Non-streaky. Good formula and consistency. Full-coverage in 2 coats. Easy application.
Wear Test: Started chipping on my dominant (right) hand on the same day. Lasted 1 day without chipping on my left hand.
Comments: I really love the color and the formula of Kashmir by 786 Cosmetics but unfortunately, I noticed it had already started chipping later that day that I applied it.
I used a regular top coat but I would highly recommend using a gel clear top coat with Kashmir (I love NCLA’s Gelous? Extended Wear Gel Top Coat and Londontown’s Gel Genius Top Coat) and to definitely cap the tip of your nails to prevent it from chipping as quickly.
