Revlon Rich Raspberry Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel
Revlon Rich Raspberry Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel ($5-6) is a raspberry pink with a super-glossy, gel-like finish. Indoors in low lighting the color appears much more raspberry/magenta, but when in bright lighting, the purple hues really come out and it shows more of a true fuchsia.
I don’t know what it is with nail colors, but I get sick of every single polish after one manicure. It’s very rare for me to find a shade that I want to wear continuously. Is anyone else like this? I’m beginning to think if I should stop buying nail polish all together and just get a weekly manicure at the salon. Anyway, fuchsia is one color that I don’t find myself getting sick of on my nails.
I prefer darker shades of polish in general as pastels and light shades become discolored after a few days (I’m hard on my hands). This shade in particular really seems to flatter my skintone whether I’m pale or tan. Berry shades are typically most worn during Fall, but I love breaking the rules and wearing it all year round when I’m sick of everything else in my collection.
The Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel line claims to keep your manicure fresh for up to 11 days – it’s barely been 24 hours since I applied the color, but I’ll update this post to let you know how well it holds up. I’m super lazy when it comes to painting my nails more than once a week, so if this polish stays put for a week, I’m definitely going to purchase additional shades.
The formula is fantastic – creamy, opaque and perfect with two coats. It didn’t take forever to dry between coats and the finish is shiny. The brush is large with a rounded tip for precise, streak-free application. Only, my applicator wasn’t cut evenly which is a bit annoying during application, but I was able to paint my nails mistake-free.
Have you tried the Revlon Colorstay line of nail polishes? Did they stay true to the 11-day claim for you?
