The first polish I have to show you today is this very Christmas appropriate green from the Revlon Top Speed line. This is Emerald, and the formula on this beauty is divine! The photos show 1 coat, no top coat and no clean up. Yes, you did read that right, I didn't do clean-up. The formula on this is so easy to control that I didn't really need to. That has happened to me a total of 3 times now, so it's pretty big. There were a couple of streaks when I applied it, but it self-levelled nicely. Dry time was pretty short (not that I have much to compare, as I always use quick-dry top coat), and it dried nice and glossy.
here, and they are still in stock, so if you need a dark green for Christmas I would absolutely recommend this. Naturally, I was compelled to do my first Christmas mani over this base. It would be rude not to!
here for £1.49. This is 2 coats with top coat, apart from the ring finger which needed 3 coats to help cover some bad staining I have on that nail. It didn't quite do it, but never mind. Incidentally, that staining is from Brisk Blue from the same line of polish. It didn't stain when I wore it alone, but I used it as a base for a chunky glitter polish, and it left stains in spots under the larger pieces of glitter. That was a couple of weeks ago, and it's still pretty bad. Any tips on getting rid of them would be greatly appreciated : )
