The Best Nail Paints in India
Maybelline Color Show Bright Sparks – Power of Red
We love this shade from the Maybelline Color Show Bright Sparks range because it's bold and flirty. Plus, any nail paint collection is incomplete without a lively red. But in case you're looking for alternative hues, check out Flash of Coral (a bright salmon pink) and Burnished Gold (a deep shimmery bronze).
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail Polish – Unwine'd
The Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail Polish in Unwine'd is one of the best nail paints available because it contains argan oil that delivers intensive nourishment to your nails as you polish them. Be assured of up to 10 days of fade-proof, chip-free wear. Wear this shade on moody days.

Get a matte-opaque, streak-free finish with SUGAR Cosmetics Tip Tac Toe in Holly Golightly – one of the best nail paints in the pink segment. This non-toxic nail paint contains colour-protecting UV filters and patented 2-fold plasticizers that guard against chipping.
