NewU has been my new fascination lately and I so love <3 exploring their store! My half empty nail polish bottles were poking me for a while and I knew it was time to checkout some new ones! (P.S: By “checkout” I mean BUY, it’s just a guilt free way of presenting my intention 😛 )
I visited their store near karvachauth (that time of the year when your husband cannot say NO to your shopping, even if he wants to :P). Time was in my favor and I took advantage AND picked 8 of their nail polishes… there is a long story behind why and how it all happened… if you have the time read on, else you can jump in the review.
The Story behind NewU Nail Polish Haul
It was karwachauth time and I had decided my outfit, makeup, nail art etc.. etc.. for the day. I was so excited to do a traditional, red glittery nail art… In hunt of a RED GLITTERY top coat, I headed the mall. I did come across a few reds but didn’t find the perfect red.. some were too bright.. some were too dull… some weren’t just glitter enough to blind everyone… BUT… I didn’t come back home empty handed, the search introduced me to 8 gorgeous glitterryyyyy <3 nail polishes that refused to stay back. The pre decided nail art was obviously cancelled and so was the other detailing.
I picked up the following shades from their glitterati collection
- Silver Chrome
- Icy Cool
- Pixie Pink
- Rose Quartz
- Autum Glow
- Pink Angel
NewU Nail Polish Review
These polishes come in a sleek, usual glass bottle. The brush is not very impressive, it’s slightly thin and doesn’t help much in perfect application. Even the bristles are slightly rough.
Wearability and Quality
The polishes stay comfortably for about 5-7 days after which it starts to chip off from the ends. The shades aren’t super quick to dry. The texture for pixie pink was rough and disappointing, even Autum glow was not very smooth on application, rest of the polishes were fine.

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
- These polishes take slightly longer to dry
- Some of the shades give a rough and not so impressive finish
