NOTD: New Revlon Colorstay: Spanish Moss with Peach Leopard - 19/07/12


 My rainbow coral nails were looking a bit chipped so I decided to pop on this new colour before work - that's why the application looks a bit sloppy. 'Spanish Moss' came in the post on Tuesday and it's part of Revlon's new Colorstay polish range which boasts 'gel like' results. I'm trying it out to write a full review soon as I'm interested to see what the formula's like and if it lives up to Revlon's claims. 

The colour isn't one I would of picked; Spanish Moss is an unappealing name and I don't favour muddy/natural colours but khaki green and army prints are making a come back for autumn/winter 2012. Two large Boots stores I've visited in the last couple of days have the new Revlon nail stand, separate from the Revlon counter, with a large range of these colours. I've read great things about the colour Buttercup from Amarixe's Blog so if I enjoy the formula of this colour I think I'll pick up that colour.

I applied the leopard print using my favourite coral/peach colour and my trusty nail art pen to try and brighten up the dull colour. Unfortunately the finish of the Revlon polish reacted badly with having other polish applied on top and made the whole nail peel, #fail. Luckily I just used the Bourjois Remover Pot on my two index fingers and repainted them using Instyle Coral quickly before work. Shame as I like the two colours together with the leopard print design, but I've enjoy the formula of the Revlon polish so far. Full review to come.
