Short Reviews: Stage Nail Color + Revlon Nail Enamel
Posted Oct 04 2009 11:14pm
You can stop laughing at my nails now. Looking at the pictures, I think I'm in desperate need of a manicure -- no idea how to remove cuticles. Nail polishes are starting to grow on me though I'm not keen on venturing into nail art (happy enough that I can paint with my left hand!). Off and on I'll do short reviews of nail polishes that I have. Today's post will feature Stage Nail Color and Revlon Nail Enamel.
Read on... Having such a thick consistency, I was worried that the Stage Nail Color would go on all goopy and chunky. It has a unique one-coat formula which is like a dream come true for me as I usually mess up my nails when I'm doing the second coat. Application was dummy-proof with minimal streaking. Even without a top coat (the one I have is sucky) my nails remained chip-free for a good couple of days. Removing wasn't too much of a hassle either. My only complaint is that I'm not a huge fan of frosty pearlescent colors for my nails. The color that I have is Charming, I think. To fix the problem, I did solid-colored brown french tips and they helped contrast the loud pearlescent finish (will post pictures when I do that again).
Retails at Stage Cosmetics outlets for RM35. Check out some other colors and reviews by Bee and PrettyB.
I couldn't wait to paint my nails with Revlon Nail Enamel in Plum Seduction and Chocolate Truffle the very night I received them. Such an irresistibly delicious pair! The watery formula was easy to apply albeit it makes the color go on sheer. Thus, a second coat is definitely needed. It didn't take long for the nail polish to dry between coats. Despite the fact that the colors are solid, which I love, they do give a glossy finish. Adding a top coat would definitely have helped prevent chipping and increase shine. I'm rather keen on getting a few more colors. At RM19 each, they're quite affordable and easily available from major healthcare stores. Bee sparked the idea to do dark french tips with Chocolate Truffle and ParisB pulls of Red Hot Tamale effortlessly.
