Nail Polish Love - Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel

I have been on a nail polish kick as of late. And to my delight, I stumbled across a new collection by Revlon featuring lovely colours, nothing like what I've seen from them before, and some of which I immediately fell in love with. 

Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel


Pastels have been all the rage this season and I myself could not resist these. I picked up all 3 of the pastels in
the collection: Lily, Cloud and Jaded. They are SO pretty and absolutely perfect for summer. Granted, these
colours may not be entirely unique and easily duped by other brands, but they were different enough to
prompt me to add these beauties to my existing collection.

On my nails: Revlon Top Speed in the colour "Cloud" (just 2 coats)

I apologize for the condition of my nails. These photos were taken a couple days after I painted my nails so they're not in perfect shape, but you get an idea of the colour. I absolutely love it! What made me love these polishes was not simply the colour, but their application. These polishes apply like a dream - they are very smooth, not runny, and opaque in just 2 coats. Also, when they say "Top Speed", they really do mean top speed as each coat of polish dries within the minute.

The other pastel polish I picked up was this pale green.
Although I already owned a pale green by Essie in "Mint Candy Apple",
I was drawn to this particular shade in Revlon's latest collection because of its warmer tones,
compared to Essie's which evidently has a bluer tone to it. 

Swatches of all the polishes from left to right:
 Essie in Mint Candle Apple, followed by Revlon Top Speed in Jaded, Lily and Cloud

If you are lucky to get your hands on these polishes, I recommend picking them up. I've heard there are new shades coming out (if they haven't already!) for the fall season. I'm definitely keeping my eye out for them! ;)

Anita, I love this post!

The pastel colors are so pretty.. and I like Revlon already cuz they are CF :P but unfortunately sometimes their nail polishes drive me crazy b/c they dry too slow. Where can I get myself these new polishes?!

Jules said...

hey Anita. Cute nail polish colors! I like the Revlon Top Speed in the shade Jaded the most. I might just snag one for myself next time I visit my local drugstore. I especially like the fact that they dry with a glossy finish, even without a clear top coat! Impressive!

Traveliztera said...

revlon has really been stepping it up and is doing great dupes of the popular chanel nail colors. jaded is (obviously) a great dupe for chanel jade, and it looks like cloud is a dupe for chanel riva. i saw this revlon collection at walgreens with a bunch of other really great colors, a beigy, taupy grey similar to chanel paradoxal and some others. high-end nail chanel color at a fraction of the price...thanks revlon!

I don't know if Austria still has Revlon, because I think Revlon has been banned out of Austria some time ago. Sad... :(
