Lakme True Wear Nail Enamel – Siren Red Review, Nails

Lakme True Wear Nail Enamel – Siren Red is my first ever Red nail color which I bought almost 2 years back. But even after buying this nail color at first place I was not sure whether I am going to put it on my nails ever. The nail color lay untouched for almost a week and then one morning my sis showed me some of her party pictures where one of her friends was wearing a Red nail paint and I fell completely in love with it. I immediately took out my Siren Red and painted my nails Red.

My experience with Lakme True Wear Nail Enamel – Siren Red:-

Siren Red is a flattering Red shade with orange undertones. It is a bright red shade which makes my hands look just gorgeous.


The original consistency of the nail color is good, neither thick nor runny which spreads easily on the nails. The brush is lengthy enough and nicely packed to give a smooth application. The formula is intensely pigmented to give an almost opaque finish in a single coat. With 2nd coat the color tends get a bit darker but not gothic. It dries quickly to give a creamy glossy finish. The nail color lasted for 3-4 days easily on my nails but depending on the amount of work you do the staying power can vary.


The only thing that I didn’t liked about is its removal process. The nail paint doesn’t gets removed completely and leaves bad looking red stain to the nail beds.

The nail paint used to give an even rich red color to the nail in a single coat but one day my cousin used this nail color with a fan running over. Since then, I have noticed that the consistency has become thicker which makes it difficult to get an even coverage. Now, when I try to get the nail color on my nails it gives a patchy application. Some part of the nail gets a lot of color but the other is quite sheer and when I try to spread it evenly with the brush the whole application messes up.
