I hated this polish. I wanted to love it because of the colour, but I hated the formula. It went on thin and streaky and gooey? I did two coats and it was still a streaky mess.It took forever to dry and the next day I could peal it off like rubber! I will stick to OPI.
Essie's mint candy apple is much better.
I got this and Coral Me Wild on sale. I have long nails no matter what and because of this I always avoided nail polish since it screamed "look at my creepy long witch nails". It was only lately that I started to fall in love with colour and decided what the heck! I'm sure anyone afraid to try colour can make it work if they really want it to, long nails or not~ I love wearing coloured nails when I am wearing all black/grey/white :)
Application was not at all like Coral Me Wild. This baby bubbled and went on thin and streaky. Take your time with this and layer it on. Impatience will make this come out bad! Put it on thin and LET IT DRY properly. I also found that this colour likes to rub off a bit when I add on a top coat.
I wouldn't buy this again but I would find another brand with this colour. I've never had a NP bubble on me so that sealed the deal of no return!
bought this on a whim at the grocery store. love the color but the formula is pretty bad. takes forever to dry, doesnt spread very well, and bubbles like CRAZY. however i don't really mind the bubbling part that much since a layer of a good clear nail polish will hide the bubble bumps. i'm not sure if its because i put a good top coat on or not but this nail polish has not chipped yet and i have been wearing it for 4 for so days. i will not buy this again but i will be on the lookout for a similar color from a different brand.
I really wish the formula was a little better- 3 coats for it not to appear streaky and bc of that, it takes a while to dry and even when it does, my nails get really cakey. The color is super cute but bc the formula i would not repurchase.
I got the nail polish for three dollars so if you really wanted to save money then be patient and wait for Revlon to be on sale.
I really do enjoy this nail polish. I do not have any bubbles when applying it, but there are ways to avoid it if it happens. The formula is quite watery, so streakyness will happen. But you can use a white base to help avoid that also. If you are good at applying nail polish Revlon polishes won't be too difficult. On the other hand, if you don't want to bother with putting extra effort and patience, then spend an extra couple of dollars on OPI or Essie. This usually takes two coats for me. It does not chip and I don't use a top coat. It's a beautiful color and definitely a cheaper alternative to Essie's Mint Candy Apple. The main concern about Revlon polishes is that it really tests your 'skills'. I personally like Revlon polishes!
Other reviewers have said that it comes on streaky - yes, the first coat is. After the second (I usually do three) it looks completely solid. The color is exactly the same as it appears in the bottle and it lasts at least a few days before chipping. Despite the inconvenience of having to do three coats instead of two, its still one of my top three polishes.
FORMULA is messy, streaky, gets tacky, and never seems to dry on me. overall, it just sucks.
COLOR looked prettier in the bottle for me. of course, this might have to do with my skin tone and/or the fact that I had to glomp on layer after slow-drying layer to get it completely streak-free and smooth. anyway, I've seen swatches of it looking quite pretty on other people so it must be me, I guess.
APPLICATION is a pain because of the aforementioned formula and took forever. I had to start completely over sometimes. also, I've tried like, five times to get this right. it hasn't happened yet and I don't plan on trying again.
this is only the second nail polish from Revlon I have purchased, but I don't think I'll be purchasing any more in the near future. I wanted to like both of them, I really did. it just never happened.
I agree with other reviews that the formula is really streaky but mine dried really really fast to my surprise and the colour is beautiful! I required 2-3 coats for it to be opaque. Yes I would repurchase but definitely not at full price.
The formula isn't too terrible. I find it goes on a little streaky on the first coat, but after a second coat, I don't have a problem with it.
The color is beautiful! I buy this all the time because I just love the color and can match it to almost anything I wear. It's pretty and soft, but a little surprising, too. The color in the bottle is pretty much exactly how it looks on your nails.
My only big issue with this is that it seems to dry out way too fast. I still have about a 4th of the bottle left, and the product has gotten too gloopy and dry to even apply, and I have to buy a new one.
I got this color for 40% off at RiteAid.
Yes, the formula is a bit... crappy to the say the least but definitely something that you can work with! I apply 3 layers and a fast-drying topcoat and the color came out beautiful!!! I normally stick to dark colors (brown, purple, navy blue, etc) but I bought this one cuz I thought it was pretty and it's been sooo rainy here.
I'm so glad I went out on a whim!
