I have tried nail polishes from many brands and as I love to paint my nails, I keep on buying and trying new brands. Today’s review would be about a new nail polish ‘Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer Coraline In The City’ that I tried last week.
I always get fascinated with matching nail and lip colors but never had anything that goes well. While surfing the net I came to know that Sugar Cosmetics have value sets and in some of the sets you can have matching nail polish and a lip color. So I ordered the shade ‘Coraline In The City’ set. Both the products in the set are named the same and they actually look amazing together.
Price: INR 249 for 10 ml of product (BUY HERE)

How to Apply:
Three swipes are all you need for the perfect application of the lacquer to your nails. The wide brush of our Tip TacToe Nail lacquer helps you get a burst of polish in one go, start from the base of your nail, stroke the brush to the left, to the right and then down the center and Voila!
The lipstick comes packed in a regular ‘Sugar Cosmetics box’, but as I ordered the ‘SUGAR Lips & Tips Mixology Value Set containing both the lipstick as well as the nail polish, I got a bigger box.
The actual bottle of the polish is square shaped with a black colored lid. The brand’s logo is printed on the top of the cap and the shade name and number are pasted on the bottom of the bottle. The one thing I loved about the packaging was the wand of the polish. The wand is thick. I don’t exactly know that what is it with the wand, but the bristles are shaped such that they sit perfectly on the curves of my nails making it completely effortless to apply the polish.
The lid is sturdy and travel-friendly in the sense that it won’t open inside the bag, but as it’s a glass bottle it needs to be taken with care.
My Experience with Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer Coraline In The City:
Color: ‘Coraline In The City’ is a matte orange coral shade which might not be everyone’s choice as a daily wear color. But the shade is perfect to add a pop of color to your everyday neutral colored outfit. And, like me, if you are a bright color lover, this is the perfect shade for you.
The color looks very similar to a spray nail polish I wrote about last year.
Pigmentation: The company suggests to have 3 swipes of the polish to get the finished look, but for me, 2 coats worked perfectly well. The formula is non-streaky even after the first coat.
Texture: The shade Coraline In The City is from the matte line of the Sugar Cosmetics nail polish section. The formula dries completely matte in no time and is super easy to apply
Staying Power: The polish has a great staying power. I had my polish for 5 days and up to 3 full days, there was no chipping or even fading. After the 4th day, there was some fading from the outer edges of the nails, but the polish looks good even after 6 days.
Drying Time: The company claims, that the polish dries even you can spell your date’s name which is actually true. The polish has a super quick drying time, which makes applying the polish a not so time-consuming process.
I loved the product. Not only I am in love with the color, but I like the formula too. I would definitely like to try other shades from the brand’s nail polish collection.

Cons of Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer Coraline In The City:
