I have quite a few Maybelline Colorama nail polishes, so I was curious to try the re-launched range. Compared to the old design (and my horrible photos) this new look is so much better, it is chic and looks like it could be a part of a luxury line.
The brush is also easier to use now, it’s not a wide-and-thin one but I can’t complain.
But since I have a lot of red nail polishes already (my favourite has to be Revlon Red, the best red, in my opinion), I gave this one to my aunt along with red lipstick. My uncle better appreciate, ha!
Today I want to show you one more nail polish which is among my favourites and it is L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium Nail Polish in 734 Black Red.
I’ve actually had it for over a year now and wore it numerous times but somehow always forgot to take the photo.
So here it is finally! And I am so in love with the blackened red, it is a perfect combination if you ask me… It looks absolutely stunning on the nails.
The nail polish applies evenly and is opaque with two coats but the thing that I hate about it is the brush. It is long and thin (and I like it to be short and thick) so I manage to create some mess, especially near the cuticles. But if that’s the kind of brush you like, it shouldn’t be a problem for you.
Although on me it doesn’t last for seven days, as promised, I love and use this nail polish a lot.
When I was looking at the nail polishes that I haven’t tried yet, this 17 High Gloss Nail Polish in Risky Red caught my attention so I’ve decided to put it on.
Actually I did not expect anything phenomenal but I was shocked at how amazing it turned out! On the photo below I am wearing only one coat! It is painted over the Seche Clear base coat but no top coat on. Not only it looks opaque but also glossy and shiny. I am very impressed.
I’ve actually got this nail polish as a
Today I am wearing Revlon’s Revlon Red, which I had to get after seeing the swatches of it online, and I have mixed feeling about it. I like a lot of products from Revlon and I really wanted to like the nail polish, too, especailly after reading some great reviews.
So why do I have mixed feelings? First of all lets start with the positive things about it!
The colours are really beautiful and there are quite a lot to choose from. I have 2 Revlon nail polishes and they are both very beautiful! The colours are very pigmented and are opaque with only one layer (but two layers give a even better coverage).
Now this swatch is just UGLY! I know. But I just wanted to show what I mean by saying that I can’t manage to use this brush – the nail polish is all over the place as you can see and I can’t manage to paint my nails near the cuticle. But the colour however is stunning! I am showing you only one nail because all the others look the same unfortunately.
And what I don’t like about it. For some reason Revlon nail polishes don’t stay for a long time on me even after I’ve used a Seche Vite top coat. I am also not sure if I like the brush, maybe I just need to get used to it but that is obviously my personal preference. I am not saying that it’s a bad brush but for some reason I can’t use it without making a huge mess.
I will try to experiment with these nail polishes more and I really hope that they will stay on for a longer time. It is such a shame that it starts chipping on the second day as the colours are SO beautiful.
And for how long does the Revlon nail polish stay on your nails?
Those of you who follow me on twitter probably already saw this photo of me wearing Ellis Faas Creamy Lips in L101 Ellis Red which is just amazing! According to the brand it should look nice on every skin tone. They also have the famous Ellis Red in other formulas: Milky Lips L201 and Glazed Lips L301 so you can choose a formula, too.
As for the nail polish I am wearing Revlon’s Valentine and although I absolutely love the colour I am not happy with the application and the brush. But I will write about both products in more details later, so stay tuned!
I plan to show you some other red and plum lip products over the next few weeks. And I would really love to hear what lip shades are you loving now? By the way, have you seen my tips onhow to wear a red lipstick?
