Faces Nail Enamel- Shanghai Shimmer

This is the first shade that I bought from Faces Canada. It is a pretty shimmer in silver. I picked up the bottle and the cap came off. I don't know if you're supposed to use it that way (just like L'oreal) or the cap was loose.You'll need at least 4-5 coats for opacity if you're just using the shimmer. If you're using it on top of a base colour then only one coat is enough.
There are two variations- 12ml bottle and 7ml bottle. The shades in 12ml and 7ml bottle are completely different. Shanghai Shimmer comes in 7ml bottle.
It is easy to work with and the shimmer is evenly distributed.

Brush: The brush gives an even and smooth application.

Price: 99 INR for 7ml
          199 INR for 12ml

The shimmer created different kind of shine from different angles.
Base Color: Maybelline Colorama Black

Lasting Power: It depends on your nails how long a polish will last and also on how much work you do. O my nails, tip wear started in a day( no base or top coat)  and with base colour it lasted for 2 days with no chipping.( I do house hold jobs and the longest any nail enamel has lasted is 4 days.)

What you see below is 4 coats of Shanghai Shimmer (alone) and two coats of black colorama with two coats of shimmer with no base and top coat.

  • Hard to remove it(when wearing it alone) but it left no residue behind.
Overall Rating: 7.5/10


  1. Very Pretty!!
    I have two Faces nail polish that I absolutely detest. I keep picking wrong ones I guess. :)
    I love coloroma black because when layering I can get away with just one coat of it. It is great as base colour.

  2. I got colorama black from and it turned out to be cheaper than the other shades. Which shades did you buy?

  3. Roxo metallico, Black, Perla and one that has no name on it!

    They are really good and for that price and very easy to apply. Me love them much these days. :)

  4. I have not seen any of these except black. I wanted atomic orange but it was sold out and has not been back :(

  5. tu na baas kar de ab kyaa hoga when u go brokee :P!!

  6. You will have to contribute to the relief fund!
