Name: Lasting Color in Afro Terracotta
From Pupa’s website:
A nail polish with an ultra glossy effect and very intense color, easy to apply, in just one stroke. Dries quickly and has a great hold.
What I liked:
– beautiful summery shade with a glossy finish
– great colour payoff
– thin texture doesn’t streak
– dries quickly
– decent staying power
– adorable packaging
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– if you’re hard on your nails, it’ll last only three days
Originally launched in 2012 as part of Pupa’s summer collection Afro Chic, Afro Terracotta is a beautiful brick shade with orange undertones and a glossy finish. I’m actually surprised by how much I love this colour. I usually prefer bright neons, delicate pastels, or vampy dark hues, while Afro Terracotta is more on the neutral side. But it still packs a punch.
Very chic, Afro Terracotta is also easy to apply. One coat is all you need for an opaque colour payoff and it dries in less than ten minutes! Don’t you wish all nail polishes did that too? The consistency is on the thinner side, and glides smoothly on the nails, without creating streaks or bubbles.
How long does it last? On my nails, it started to chip after 3 days, which is not bad at all, considering how hard I am on them. Besides, I soon get kinda bored of wearing the same shade for a few days in a row, so I’d probably remove it after that anyway. But if you want it to last longer, instead, just apply a protective top coat on top. That should give you a couple more days of wear.
