The colour and the exact same picture have been found on a search page of Google and the image belongs to Shutterstock. People have called out the brand on an Instagram page which exposed the brand and Manish Malhotra collab. The account posted the image and left the comment section open for beauty junkies for discussion.

The caption of the post states, in under eight minutes and counting, about 2100 people reported the shade advertised by the company does not resemble the picture in the campaign. In fact, the shade can be found when searched for “green nails”. The image is owned by Shutterstock and a Shutterstock image was used for the marketing of the product instead of taking pictures of the products. People seemed upset in the comment and said he should just stick to making clothes. People are finding this situation rather hilarious and waiting for the brand to let some "intern" take the blame, just like every other brand that goofs up.
