Nykaa Mirror Chrome Nail Lacquer, Pink Pinwheel, 177: Review, Swatches

Hello there!

I am back today with another nail color review from the brand Nykaa. Now as you must be knowing, Nykaa has a wide array of nail polishes with endless number of colors to pick from. I am just crazy about metallic nails; so when I came across their Mirror Chrome Collection, I got really excited and just had to try it for myself. The shade that I bought from this range is called Pink Pinwheel. So without any further ado, let’s get started and jump right into the review. Stay tuned!

Spin the world around you with our Nykaa Mirror Chrome Nail Lacquer in Pink Pinwheel. This bright pink shade is all you need to leave your head and heart on the dance floor. Dip your pinkies in this fun shade and go dancing with your girlies!


Packaging: The nail polish comes in a pretty glass bottle with a black cap. It clearly states all the vital information such as date of manufacturing, date of expiry and product volume. However, I did not find the MRP anywhere, which is strange! The shade name is mentioned at the side of the bottle, while the shade number is there both at the top as well as the side. The brush is quite long but easy to use. It picks up a good amount of product in one go and covers the entire nail area properly. All in all, the packaging is pretty, sturdy as well as travel friendly.



Shade: Pink Pinwheel is a flattering metallic pink shade with a silver shimmer base. The color looks beautiful on the hands and can be worn to work too.

My Experience With The Product: Nykaa Mirror Chrome Nail Lacquer in the shade Pink Pinwheel has an incredibly smooth texture that is neither too runny nor too thick. It beautifully spreads on the nails and is easy to apply. I did not experience any clumping or streakiness at all during applying it. It has a rich color payoff and provides a gorgeous hue in a single swipe. However, out of habit, I always apply 2 coats for the color to show up completely. It dries down quickly and has a good staying power. It lasts for around 5-6 days, which is great! However, like most nail colors, it will start chipping off from the tips in a day or two if you are into everyday kitchen chores. Nevertheless, the color remains intact!

Here I would also like to point out that this is a shiny metallic nail paint and it will not exactly give you a true chrome finish. Chrome nails are best achieved with the help of chrome powder, thus one should not expect any sort of mirror-like finish from this nail polish. I feel this particular shade would look best on fair to medium skin tones. Along with this, removing the color is also quick and fuss-free. It easily comes off with a good polish remover and that too without staining the nails, which is another plus.

It is easy to apply and dries down quickly. The color payoff is excellent and you get a rich color in just a single swipe. The staying power is also good and removal is also not a problem either.
