Revlon Colorstay Polishes. After admiring them every single time that I visit the drugstore, I finally decided to try them out!
These polishes promise "11 day shatterproof wear". Now, I did not buy them thinking that I could actually go 11-days without needing to change my polish. I mean, if a polish lasts 3 days then I am pleased! 11 days sounds crazy-long! But, I would be happy with any polish lasting longer than 3 days. For best results, Revlon suggests using their Colorstay base and Colorstay top coat for extended wear. So, of course I picked those up too. Actually, I needed a new topcoat. Normally I use Seche Vite (which I totally love); but, I am almost out. So, I might as well try the Colorstay!
The new Revlon Colorstay polish selection is really amazing. They have a nice range of shades which include creme colors as well as some frosty/shimmery ones. Buttercup drew me in as it was a very nice yellow shade (and a shout out to Amarixe who always mentions it in her videos). I have such trouble with yellows. Most of them look just terrible with my skintone.
Revlon Colorstay Base Coat and Top Coat:
WOW! These smell *strong*! But, they totally work!!! Not only does the Colorstay Base and Top Coat extend the wear of the Colorstay polish, but also it extends the wear of every polish that I have tried with it. As I mentioned above, anything beyond 3 days is extended wear to me. Now, I do get the usual "tip wear" (no chipping or peeling...just some soft signs of wear at the tips). After about a week, I usually just remove it as the finish is looking dull...but the polish is still going strong! I am quite amazed with the wear!!!
I am not quite sure yet if the Revlon Colorstay Base and Top Coat will replace my beloved Seche Vite and my Nailtiques Formula 2 (that I use as a base coat). But, for longer wear, I don't think the Revlon combo can be beat!
