Diana of London Nail Polish Maple - 02 Review and Swatches


Hi All.

Today, I am going to review a very pretty nail paint from the range of ‘Diana of London’. The shade name is ‘Maple -02’. It is a lovely dark tone shade in the tones of maroons. But I tell you, it’s not maroon or brown, it’s very different colour, very rich and looks good on all.

How To Use –

Apply Base Coat: A base coatclear coat provides an ideal surface for nail polish. This step is optional but recommended. Applying a thin base coat to your nails will make your nail polish last longer and look smoother. Wait for 2 minutes to dry well.

Apply nail color of your choice: Applying polish can be tricky try to apply just enough to cover the nail without showing brush strokes. 
Dry After Each Coat: Each coat of nail polish should be given at least 5 -7 minutes to dry before another is applied or a top coat is applied.

Clear Coat: Apply a top coat clear coat when your nails are completely dry. To help make sure your nails have dried completely try applying the final coat of polish half an hour before bed time and then apply the top coat in the morning


Cost –

Rs. 195 for 12ml 

The quantity provided at the cost is quite good. It is good quality nail paint. I am using it for almost 2 years (leave alone expiry dates ;)) and that too frequently but it dries up on my nails still with the same speed and has the same consistency. It doesn’t chip out soon and that’s when I am not using any top coat. Brush is good. No streaks, no bad looking lines, just good coverage with good pigmentation. It dries off quickly. I usually apply 2 coats of this nail paint and that’s enough or it will look black J
You will love this shade if you like dark colors. It doesn’t have any shimmer. It has a good staying power.
