I’m a terrible floozy when it comes to nail polish; I love trying out new formulas, new shades, new finishes and tend to switch up my polish at least once a week. I use a lot of nail polish remover.
But despite my floozy polish habits, I am actually pretty picky when it comes to my favourite polishes – particularly where the formula and brush are concerned. So when the latest nail polish release from Revlon landed on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to whack it on my nails and test out the results. And I have to admit I’ve been pretty darn impressed.
The colour range is ruddy huge and they have some superb shades included – such as High Stakes, the beautiful forest green seen above, which was the first colour that I tried from the collection. Formula-wise, the polishes are incredibly opaque and offer an almost-perfect finish in just one quick coat (I opted for two but one would have worked); in terms of staying power, the polish lasted for about three days completely chip-free – and that’s without a top coat too so imagine what it could do with a layer of Seche Vite whacked on top. The only thing that I think could use a bit of improvement is the brush – fairly wide but not quite the cuticle clinger that I tend to like.
All in all though, I’m pretty darn impressed with the results and I think this collection is going to prove seriously popular – particularly as the shade range is so ruddy brilliant. I’ve already got my eye on a few more colours…
