Revlon Multi Care Base + Top Coat Review ($5.75) A great multi-tasking product: it first smoothes the way for nail color, then seals and protects with a hard, shiny, chip-resistant finish.
I’m sad to say I didn’t end up liking the Revlon Multi Care Base + Top Coat. As a base coat, it didn’t keep the dark nail colors from staining my nail. As a top coat, it didn’t the usual shine I’m used to getting from other top coats. I also found the formula to be too watery and thin. I also noticed it caused my nail polish to go on streaky. It was so weird. Another complaint is that it took forever to dry. I don’t think it even dried. It’s a shame because Revlon nail products are usually really good.
Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat Review ($5.75) Quick Dry Top Coat sets in 60 seconds to a hard lustrous finish. Formula safeguards polish from nicks and chips
The Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat isn’t my favorite top coat I’ve tried thus far but it isn’t the worse. Don’t get me wrong. It works; just not as well as others. It leaves a shiny finish and dries quick (about 10 minutes). There isn’t a strong scent (Seche Vite I’m looking at you!). The top coat does a good job of keeping my nail polish chip-free. I can go about 3-4 days without seeing any chips. Another plus is the brush can reach the bottom of the bottle. Yay for no wasted product! However, it is oily. I don’t like how oily it is. It spreads and drips down my fingers. Also if I’m not careful, it creates bubbles. It isn’t a lot of bubbles, but it’s enough for me to notice. Overall, I’ll get it again because you’ll always find it on sale and you get so much product for how little it costs.
Revlon No Chip Top Coat ($5)
LOVE! Finally an affordable top coat that performs as if it cost hundreds of dollars. It was able to keep my nail polish chip-free for over week. It also gave my polish a nice shiny, glossy finish. Unlike the super popular top coat that shall remain nameless, Revlon’s No Chip Top Coat didn’t get goopey and thick overtime. It also dries super quick. I recommend Revlon No Chip Top Coat to everybody!
Revlon Scented Nail Enamel ($4.79)
How fun! Scented nail polish! I’ve never used scented nail polish before so I didn’t know what to expect when I tried out Revlon’s Scented Nail Enamel. Surprisingly, the scented nail polish was very pleasant. The scent wasn’t too overwhelming when the nail polish dried, and they all smelled like their names. Mmm…yummy! I only could smell the fruity scent when my fingers were near my nose. The scent lasted for a couple of days. As each day passed, the scent would fade away.
The nail polish itself is great. I didn’t experience any chipping or peeling for days. I didn’t even use a protective topcoat! Two coats was all I needed for full coverage, and the polish applied very easily and smoothly. There are 16 shades to choose from. You can view them here. The 5 out of the 16 shades I own are:
305 Sublime Strawberry: a rosy pink with tiny golden shimmer
315 Pretty In Papaya: a bold reddish, orange
350 Raspberry Rapture: a red with a hint a of dark pink
365 Orange Pop: a golden, orange duochrome
375 Passion Fruit: a dark, grape purple
Note: Don’t be stupid like me and take a whiff of the nail straight from the bottle thinking it’ll smell yummy fruity. I don’t know what I was thinking. In fact, I don’t think I was using my brain, because I didn’t notice the “scented when dry” label on the bottle until the after big whiff incident. I think I was too excited about the scented feature to notice the big “scented when dry” label.

I think I may have found the best product for quick drying nail polish. Revlon Liquid Quick Dry was indeed quick drying. It was able to dry my nail polish in less than 5 minutes. No joke! In less than 5 minutes! What I like about the Revlon Liquid Quick Dry is that it’s not messy. You just brush it on like you brush on nail polish. It does take longer to apply than using a dropper because you have to brush it on each nail. However, Revlon Liquid Quick Dry is a lot less messier than the ones that come with a dropper since it’s more precise. It’s the perfect solution for when you want to do a quick manicure and you’re worried you don’t have time.
