Chained Nails: Viviana Blinding Splash+ Stamping


I have been searching for a really nice yellow nail polish.
Summer just doesnt feel complete without a couple of bright yellows.
I got a yellow polish, now I need a yellow dress and a couple of yellow accessories. Ofcourse I m not wearing all together. :p
The Yellow nps I am reviewing today is by an Indian brand called Viviana.
Viviana Nail Lacquers are DBP free and toluene free. They are priced at Rs.129/- (approx $2.5) for 8ml

My NOTD with Blinding Splash:

Base: Viviana Blinding Splash Nail Lacquer
Stamping Plate: XL D
Stamping Colour: Konad Black

The company claims: 
Viviana Nail Lacquer provides a long lasting extra gloss finish. The special formula, ensures a perfect adherence along with constant viscosity and an incredible smoothness. It is Toluene and D.B.P. free and is water resistant.  

Application: 2 coats were quite uneven and streaky. The polish takes long time to dry and I had to take out the whole thing and re-apply as I managed to dent it after 30 mins of drying time. The brush is thin and doesnt help application of the runny polish.

What you see below is my 2nd attempt with really careful 3 coats. As you can see tiny marks on the NOTD which are pillow/bedsheet marks that happened over night even after drying each coat carefully.

Shade: I loved this yellow shade, perfect for a summery afternoon outing. While I loved the shade, the application/dry time leaves a lot to be desired.

Verdict: While I loved the shade, I wasnt too happy with the uneven application and long dry time. 

Have you tried any Viviana polish?

Disclaimer: This polish was sent to me for review.
