Packaging:  It comes in a square glass bottle with a black twist up cap.

My thoughts: The Salon Formula collection has a vast variety of colors I think more than 130 colors in India.. which are quiet difficult to find in Indian market. All the pastel colors have a creme formula which is very easy to apply. It doesnt smells like nail laquer where you get that varnish smell in most of the nail paints..
for an opaque finish you have to put 2 coats. It takes alot of time to dry up even the 1st coat!!! (Really longgggggg time). But it doesnt dries up rock hard .. It gets some fabric impressions or some other impressions how much ever you try to avoid it.. :(

 This is how it looks like with 1 coat..

 & with 2 coats when the 1st coat was still a little damp.. so it dint turn out totally opaque

This how it looks like when i waited for 20mins for the 1st coat to dry then applied the 2nd coat..
It turned out very opaque.

  • Mind blowing ranges of colors
  • smooth finish
  • easy to remove
  • doesnt stains or drys nail
  • Opaque finish in just 2 coats
  • Good staying power long lasting formula
  • Doesn't chips off
  • vivid brilliant colors
  • Takes ages to dry up
  • A little too pricey
  • some how it gets some impressions after trying hard to dry it up.. /hmm
Verdict:  Yes I recommend it.. but those beauties who doesn't have patience pl don't buy it.. or you may buy it & change your mind later because you will love the colors..
I wish it was a little less inexpensive... I would have bought the whole range!! haha

Rating: 4/5
