Pigmentation & Color:

This is a beautiful silver tin foil color! :D This one needs at least 2 coats before its fully opaque! :)

This is me wearing two coats:



Texture & Scent:
This nail polish is a little thick and goopy, so it takes awhile to dry and doesn't really go on smoothly! :(

This one smells just like nail polish!! lol!! :P

Packaging:


This nail polish comes in a glass bottle with the usual brush applicator attached to the cap! The brush is just the right size:



Time Test:
For some reason this polish doesn't really last long! It chips the very next day!! >.<

Price & Availability:
This nail polish costs RM20, and should be available at all Revlon displayers at Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket! :D


My $0.02:

I got this as part of the Buy 1 Free 1 offer when I bought the Red Hot Tamale shade! :D

This has been long regarded as a dupe of the MAC $$$$ Yes nail polish first released with the Fafi collection, and I can see why! It's such a beautiful silver shade thats just begging to be looked at! :D

Unfortunately the texture is a huge letdown! Thick and goopy - it doesn't go on smoothly and it streaks too! >.<

At RM20 this one isnt the cheapest nail polish out there, and I believe that there're definitely better options available. I will not repurchase because of this!

  1. Looks quite sheer! that's sad to read that it did not last long especially the Revlon Polishes down here are quite pricey!

  2. Well, if a RM20 cannot last long, I think you can invest in brands like Face Shop, I personally think its good, cheaper somemore!

  3. The color's beautiful but it's too bad about the formula. What a bummer!
