Revlon Colorstay Base and Top Coat Review

Hi everyone!
I am here wide awake at almost 2:30am LA time while it is 5:30pm in Manila.  Kyle just went to bed so I guess I'm left nothing to do but blog.

I have received Revlon's ColorStay base and top coat last year when I was still pregnant so I gave this pair and skipped and waited until I gave birth to try out this combo.  I know I have stopped doing nail art for almost a year (Promise, I'll get back to that) but I did not stop applying nail polish!  With my very busy life as a mom, nail polish chip in less than a week so it was a pleasure for me to try Revlon's newest base and top coat.

AMW says ---
  • Great flat brush applicator.
  • Formulation is easy to apply.
  • The base coat has a gel-like texture making it easy to fill up the surface of the nail and create a smooth canvass.
  • Polish stays  more than a week with hardcore washing.
  • Polish stays shiny and fresh even after several days.
  • Fast drying.
  • Did not state that this product is free from Big 3.
A nice base and top coat that helps prolong nail polish up to almost 2 weeks and it keeps my polish shiny and fresh-looking for days.

  • Apply a coat of base coat and let dry before you start nail polish application.
  • Seal the polish with top coat and don't forget to include the edge of your nails.
  • No matter how tempting it is to leave your polish for 2 weeks straight, try to let your nails breathe at least after a week as nail polish tends to stain our nails.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Nail polish users.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Revlon counters for Php325.00 (approx $7.74).


The unique brush making it a breeze for me to apply.

Side view.  This surface can be used to reach out the edges of your nails.

Have you tried any polish from Revlon Colorstay line?
How do you like it and do you prefer the brush or the traditional nail polish brush?

I find Revlon is "upping" their game when it comes to nail polishes!  I have quite a number from the ColorStay line and I love the variety of shades and the lasting color!  I wish they would come up with a really safe one for pregnant and breastfeeding moms like me! :)

Keep smilin'
