its been a long since i have tried and posted my NOTD's. Today its about not so HG brand and i tried this for the first time. Its GALA OF LONDON...its an Indian brand which claims to provide international quality at affordable prices. Infact i was intrigued seeing the shades in those tiny bottles while doing Diwali shopping.
Gala Of London in 123- its a cool, pretty pink shade with mild blue undertones (between pink & lavender). its would great on Indian skin tones and combined with silver glitters, it was awesome. its a funky shade, in vogue these days and goes with all kinds of outfit.I wore this with a silver glitter coat for that festive look.
it comes a pretty square 7 ml bottle and fine, smooth brush applicator. Gave an opaque finish in 2 coats and was quite smooth and shiny. Dried quite fast. what i liked about this is the staying power- it lasted 5 days without chipping or loosing its sheen. Gave a healthy look to my hands. Price is quite affordable, i got it for INR 50 from the counter. Also its quite easy to remove with remover pads, does not leave colour residue or hardened/yellow nails after removal.
Gala Of London in 191- This shade is quite different from the normal range of bright colours. its brownish orange/coral shade; warm, dark and bright to suit almost all Indian skin tones. it would look good with golden glitters (which i tried on counter) and surely would go well with traditional indian wear.
its again 7 ml provided at INR 50 but this time has a different packaging. Bottle is ovu-cylindrical, provided with a fine, smooth brush applicator.
it took 3-4 coats for an opaque finish and also took a little more time to dry up. I had to wait for next coats as it took time to dry but as soon as it dried, all set. I applied this at night and woke up with the same finish, no crease marks etc.
it is also easy to remove. Staying power is less (2-3 days) as compared to previous one, guess it differs with pigments at times.
Only downside is that contents are not specified and i am not sure if it is Toluene or formaldehyde free.
Overall nice picks for that trendy fashion diva in you who keeps looking for colors to change every week.
