Isfahan – 786 Cosmetics
This week, I’m testing and wearing Isfahan by 786.
Color: Isfahan is described as a soft mauve cream.
Price: USD$12.95 on 786cosmetics.com
Formula: Full coverage in one coat. I have on two coats of Isfahan, in the photo above, for a bolder color. Nail polish is easy to apply and goes on consistently with no streaks. Dries to a nice glossy finish.
Wear Test: lasted 4-5 days without chipping
Comments: The mauve color is absolutely beautiful and I was skeptical at first because 786 is the very first (and only) Halal nail polish formula I’ve tried before. So I was worried since they don’t use certain alcohol in the formula that the application wouldn’t be as smooth or the polish wouldn’t last as long but 786 Halal formula was very impressive, better than most conventional nail polish actually!
They apply like a dream and last longer than other nail polish in my stash. Definitely would recommend 786 nail polish formula for everyone!
