Faces Cordovan is a gorgeous nail polish. I had been looking for a brownish red colour for a long time. I popped into the Faces store two months back and when I saw this, we just clicked!
I’ve tried some Faces nail polishes before. The quality is pretty uneven across the range you do take a chance. Shimmer Peach is another Faces polish that I love. This one turned out to be for the better. The polish is creamy and not too thick. You do need 2 coats to get the application even and opaque, However, there is no streakiness or bubbling. I don’t quite like the finish. It isn’t too glossy nor is it on the matte side. But you do need a topcoat for this. It looks a lot better with it. I am wearing Revlon’s topcoat in the photos below.
But the colour just beautiful? It’s a lovely burgundy shade. It looks like wine sometimes in the light. I love it!
The packaging is good in its square glass bottle. The brush is thin though. I like thicker ones better, makes it easier to apply for me.
It stays on well for 3-4 days and then there is some chipping. You would need to reapply if you want to to be perfect throughout the week. But at Rs. 199 you get a really decent polish in a pretty alright quality. There are better polishes out there but for the price, it’s quite alright.
