This polish is a bit tricky to work with for me - since Revlon polishes tend to be sheer, I tried layering it over white polish for opacity. However, this turned it into a pale aqua. It's more true to bottle color on my natural nails, but is too sheer. The greatest flaw of this product is how sheer yet thick and gloppy it is - it's very difficult to apply neat, thin coats. It also seems to chip pretty quickly, even on my toes - my pedicures usually take a month or more to chip. I could try to find a properly opaque nude polish to layer it over, but with my difficult pale but golden skintone and the other issues with the product itself, I'd rather just try a different minty shade, probably from another brand.
This nail polish has a beautiful colour! Unfortunately, the application can be extremely annoying. When I first bought the nail polish, it was easier to apply, but now that I've had it for about a year, it's constantly streaky and little bubbles form on in and it gets really lumpy. Also, I've been noticing that it takes a really long time to dry now even if you put on really thin layers. It makes me really sad because I really love this nail polish. Maybe the nail polish has just gotten to old and I need to buy a new one.
Love the color of this! Needed 3 coats but i was impressed with how it dried. I would purchase again!
I had high expectations for this nail polish since I loved the colour, but there are just too many problems.
The coats are thin and streaky. With one coat, it looked horrible. To get the colour opaque, you need at least 3 coats.
The worst was still to come. After my 3 coats had dried, I noticed tiny bubbles on each nail. I tried to smooth them out, but they would not go away. It makes each nail seem lumpy and amateurish.
And now, it has started to chip on the second day. It takes no effort at all to scratch it off my nail. Definitely not long lasting.
Even though I loved this minty green colour, it was pretty much the only thing I liked. Sorry Revlon, will not be repurchasing :(
When i couldn't get MAC Mischievous Mint, i was very disappointed. But there was a "buy one get one half off" sale at CVS, so i picked up Minted (#85 Revlon Nail Enamel) and this to compare the formulae, since they are pretty much the same color.
Jaded and Minted are practically the same color - Minted may be just the faintest hint deeper, but both are very pastel cool minty greens. Both are cremes, but when i examined my nails under VERY bright direct light, i could see there was a tiny amount of very fine silver microglitter in Jaded; but it isn't visible under normal lighting conditions, so i would not characterize it as a shimmer polish.
Jaded Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel went on OK, but it was a little harder to manage than the regular Revlon formula, not as smooth. And after two coats, it was more uneven and streaky. Additionally after a brief while a couple little bubbles emerged on each nail, which had me worried, although they eventually disappeared.
I put this on a few fingers to compare it with Minted, and it has not held up as well. While the regular formula has not chipped in a week, after a few days i got some chips in the Fast Dry. I would buy it again if there was a color i loved that only came in the Fast Dry formula, but the regular formula is superior.
The colour is lovely, I have to give it that. A true jade colour.
However, there are many downsides to this.
To start off.. this is probably the worse smelling polish that I have! The scent is unbearable.
The brush is a bit on the small side.
The formula is very hard to work with. It's thin, but goops up easily on the nail, making it VERY hard to work with. It took me about three-four coats on each nail.
I love the color of this Nail Polish. It took me 2-3 coats, depending the nail, to get it opaque. It does dry very quickly, which made it not a big deal to do mulitple coats. I would use it again.
This is far superiors to another revlon polish I bought recently. It went on streak-free and I love how fast it dried.
The color is a really nice minty green (sort of pastel). I didn't notice that it was metallic, but it's on my toes so maybe it is.
Good deal if you have a coupon or another drugstore deal.
omg, best color ever!!!! good for summer and winter!!!!!!! LOVE it!!!!!!! so fresh.
I would have to agree with the previous review, it is a very nice colour, but it took FOREVER to get a nice opaque look. 4 coats later, I have lost my patience. Good thing it dries quickly! Looks nice on paler skin tones, but I don't know that I would buy it again...
