But before I get into my recs, don't forget that there's a printable $1 off Revlon nail product coupon HERE that you can use to bring down your final price even further!
First, I want to mention that the Colorstay Top Coat and Base Coat both get A LOT of love from the nail community, and I know that quite a few of you are upset that these products are probably going away. So if these are favorites of yours, stock up while you can! I personally haven't gotten around to trying either the Colorstay base or top coat, and now I'm kind of glad I lagged on that since, with my luck, they'd probably become holy grail products (why do I always fall in love with things that get discontinued??).
My first rec is Rain Forest:
Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in Rain Forest -- two coats
(from my original post from August 2012)
My pic doesn't do this one justice, but I still adore this color since my original purchase in August 2012. If you love deep greens and you don't already have this one, get it. Gnarly Nails has a nice comparison post here and I love Rain Forest the most out of all the shades she swatched with it.
My second rec is Sunburst:
Sunburst is a deep tangerine jelly (sorry if it looks red on your monitor but I assure you it's orange). I did these quick swatches to show you what this baby looks like in a jelly sandwich manicure because look how opaque this is for a jelly! I only used two--yes two--coats of Sunburst in these photos. The "meat" in this jelly sandwich is one of the Blue Cross Pumpkin Polishes from last Halloween (click here for pics) that contains holo and black hex glitter.
So just to confirm, in the photos above and below I applied one coat of Sunburst, then one coat of the Halloween 2013 Pumpkin Polish in Chunky Nail and one more coat of Sunburst on top of that. That's it. Look how opaque and intense that color is, would ya?
Hello, jelly sandwich!
I get asked quite often for recs for good drugstore jelly polishes, and this is definitely one of the best, in my humble opinion. So get it while you can! It looks beautiful with just about any glitter polish and it looks gorgeous alone (without glitter) after just two coats. One more thing: I bought a back-up of this polish at my local Big Lots about a month ago for $1.99 so if you can't find it at your drugstores, check Big Lots.
What are some of YOUR favorite Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel shades? I'd love to hear your recs!
PS: Again, don't forget to print out this coupon for $1 off any Revlon nail product to use during the Walgreens or CVS clearance sales!
