NOTD: Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in Sandy Nude

Running into Poundland for some essentials the other day, I also grabbed a bottle of this Revlon Nail Enamel.

Retailing at £7.99 in Boots, the price is unbelievably good for such a well known brand.

Revlon Colorstay Sandy Nude available here

Sandy Nude is a pale, peach toned nude from Revlon's Colorstay range:

"Colorstay nail color formula is fortified with unique ingredients that provide high impact color and gel-like shine in fashion forward range of shades and finishes. This technology is based on a unique combination of resin and high molecular weight polymers designed to provide flexible, shatterproof color with excellent color retention and gloss."

It also promises "Gel-Like shine and up to 11 days of shatterproof color when worn with Colorstay™ base & top coats."

Applying two coats over my OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, I found the consisntency to be too watery, making it difficult to get a neat finish and leaving polish pooling around the edges of my nails. Because it was so thin, it was also difficult to get an opaque finish and I ran out of time after the second coat, even though there were still areas that needed covering.

I did like the glossy finish however and it does seem to last quite a while. After 6 days wear it is peeling at the base and there are a few chips on the surface from knocks, but at least 3 nails look pretty perfect! 

Overall, I really disliked the consistency, which coupled with the wide brush (which would be gret otherwise) made a professional finish impossible. I do love the pale nude colour though which is perfect for lighter skin tones as a go to nude. 

Have you guys ever used this nail polish? Do you think it may have been an older bottle?
