Buffed and shined, and one top coat applied.

The time has come to do a serious rescue for my nails and I have to say, I think I’ve found a new favourite product. I have unbelievably thin nails, and as much as I love nail polish, my nails are probably the second most neglected part of my beauty routine. The first is my hair – but that’s another story!

To full post…

As you can see from the stunning photo of my bare nails, I experience ridges, discolouration, peeling, you name it. All that wonderful stuff. This picture was directly after I peeled – yup peeled – off a nail polish colour that started to chip. Bad habits ahoy! Thankfully there’s a lot that can be done to repair shabby nails.

Sad, scuzzy looking nails in need of some TLC.

Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat:
I am in love with this top coat. I am by no means a top coat expert, but this has been the best I have tried. I will absolutely buy this again.  The formula is relatively thin, almost watery looking inside the bottle. It also dries quickly. I found I was able to go about my business fairly quickly and once you could feel it set, that’s it. I wasn’t afraid to ruin the coat. It has a glassy shine to it, and feels so smooth once it dries.

I buffed and shined my nails and applied one coat and as you can see, it’s a huge contrast to my bare nails. And you know best of all? Once this was done I went on to do my Easter nails creation – coming in the next post or here – and used it as a base coat and a top coat. I’m really happy with the results.

Final Verdict 10/10

Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer:
I really liked this buffer, especially the shape. It would fit neatly in the palm of your hand. For me, any good buffer needs a decent flat edge to get nice and close to the cuticles, and a good corner to squeeze into any places that the flat edge won’t reach. It was easy to hold and maneuver. The only reason it doesn’t get 10/10 is because the buffing side could be a touch more abrasive and longer lasting.

To be fair, I’ve yet to come across a buffer that lasts more than one round of, both hands and both feet. And this is no exception, so that’s not a huge surprise. I have seen slightly quicker results with other buffers, but not enough for me to be worried. It certainly gets the job done. And the shine, well whats to say other than it imparts an amazing shine. Overall, I do like this a lot and would consider getting it again. I’m a big fan of Revlon, so I most likely will.

Final Verdict 8/10

The buffer is double-sided, one shine buffer (white), and one abrasive (green).

    I really hate the quick dry top coat. I hate the applicator. I think it should be much wider and it doesn’t even last. It chips my nail color in two days. I’m not happy with it I really hate it.

      Hi Lilia! I’m so sorry you don’t like it and it doesnt work for you. You should write to Revlon to give your feedback. I think it’s important, whether it’s good or bad to let them know as it can influence what they do in the future. Thanks for stopping by! 😀
