Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish

Revlon ColorStay™
Longwear Nail Enamel

Welcome to Sik's Glamness in July! These posts in July will be an assortment of Makeup, Skincare, and Fashion. I guess that really isn't different than the usual posts, I guess the difference will be the frequency and the Glam Factor. The first post is on Revlon's ColorStay™ Longwear Nail Enamel!

Here's the Skinny on it from Revlon:

ColorStay™ Longwear technology seals nails for up to 11 days of lasting color and gel-like shine

- Unique double barrel brush allows for smooth, even, precise application.

(You can see this unique brush really good in the clear Top Coat.)

- Available in 30 gorgeous shades plus a top and base coat.

- No light required

I have always been the biggest fan of Revlon Nail Polishes out of all the Drug Store brands. I actually even prefer it to most of the high end brands, and Sik knows a good polish when she uses one. I don't claim to be the best at painting my nails, but I am getting better as I practice.  I have started to paint my own finger nails and I am actually having a lot of fun with it. I always found that Revlon nail polishes were the most user friendly and had the most fabulous finish. I always thought there brushes were different than the other brands, but I didn't think too much in to it. After all, it is just Nail Polish!

When I saw that Revlon had come out with ColorStay™ Longwear Polish, I bought it instantly.  I saw them in the store Gleaming and I was instantly intrigued that it claimed to be long lasting and leave a gel like finish. I will say this, It defiantly last a good solid week on my nails and that for me is Loooong. I usually chip in a day with any other polish that I use. It also leaves a nice shine that gives it that Gel like Finish.

Besides the base and the top coat, I only have four out of the 30 colors. I would have more, but I had got so many polishes in the beginning of Spring when I had that "Spring Fever" going. I want to at least try some of those out before I buy more of these. And I WILL be buying more of these. The colors are Amazing.

Here are the Colors that I have:

"090 Sorbet" Honestly the Best Orange Nail Polish
I have Even Seen! I love Wearing it with my Orange Lip Gloss!

"100 Buttercup" It is the perfect Summer Yellow!

"Naturally Tan" This one had No Number. I think it was a Limited Edition!
I got this one for a Neutral Color. It is the Most Beautiful Tropical Sandy Beige!

"140 Fall Mood" It's funny because I got this one for the fall and than I
saw the name. I knew it was Meant to be!  It is the most beautiful Shimmery Fall Brown,
even though I have already rocked it this past week.

Here are the Colors Swatched!
I have "Fall Mood" on in the Picture!

I love these polishes and I love how long they stay on. I also have the base and the top coat. I don't use the base coat. I never use base coats, but I think the Top Coat has a big impact on sealing the polish to that gel like finish. I also use my LED light (from my at home gel polish kit) to speed up the drying process. I know those are typically only used for Gel Polishes but a very experienced Nail Artist told me that I could use it to speed up the drying time on some normal polishes and it worked.

Final Thoughts:
 I am so excited that I have started to do my own Nails. Please be dubious of Nail Salons that you do not physically see the Nail Technician pull the instruments that they will be using on you out of the autoclave in the appropriate sealed bag. I only go to Nail Salons for Pedicures. I could never do my own feet, and frankly I don't even want to learn. Plus honestly, I kinda go sometimes just for the foot massage. Hope you enjoyed and Welcome to Glamness in July. Think of it as my Christmas in July to you! Sik is keeping you Glam this July!
