As always, wishing you all a happy Monday. Dug out this old nail polish from the bottom of my makeup drawer and I thought I’d share it with you. This is Revlon’s Top Speed nail polish in the color, Cupid.
Color: A very pretty cool-toned Barbie pink. I don’t usually share my opinions on shades here, because everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but this is just so pretty. Depending on the light, it may look more like a hot pink or more lavender.
Application: It has a fairly typical brush, unlike the Wet N Wild polishes, and applies about average. No complaints.
Drying Speed: Despite its name, I don’t find this dries much faster than ordinary polishes. I’ve certainly scuffed up my nails waiting for this polish to dry before.
Wear: And now we get to the reason that this has been in my drawer untouched for maybe a year. This chips like crazy for me. The first or second day wearing it, it has noticeable chips, and by the third or fourth day wearing it, I’m ready to remove it completely. I will say this though: even though I haven’t touched this in a year the formula hasn’t gotten gunky at all, so at least in the bottle, it ages well.
Cruelty-Free: Alas, no.
