Revlon Nail Enamel - Sunshine Sparkle 089

     This is a super pretty pastel yellow with little baby shimmers in it, that you can really only see if you're looking super close for them.  They look much more apparent in the bottle than they do on the actual nails. 

Formula/Color - 2/5 - Oh my goodness, it took way too many coats to get this nail polish opaque.  I know light pastel sorts of colors like this tend to be a pain in the butt, but 5 coats is crazy in my opinion.  It does look beautiful in the end, but there has to be another pretty yellow polish out there in the world that doesn't require me to be stuck painting my nails for an hour.  It's not only that it took so many coats, but the fact that it was so streaky is part of the reason I had to apply so many coats.  Even at 3 coats, it was still too streaky to leave be. 
Wear -2.5/5 - I did add a top coat to this polish, so the results of my wear testing may or may not be super accurate, but I just wanted to put that out there.  The top coat I used is Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Top Coat, I did not use a base coat, and I typically don't actually.  On the third day, my thumb nails started to chip at the very edges, and there was definite wear on the tips of all my other nails, it almost looked like they were peeling, so I took this polish off.  I was not impressed with the wear time especially seeing as I wore a top coat too.
Dry time - 5/5 - This stuff did dry pretty quick and that's awesome, gotta love a polish that dries fast.

Overall, just from my experience with this one polish, it makes me not want to try any more Revlon polishes, I know there are plenty of other brands at the drugstore that are better quality for the same price range.  This polish was $3.97 at my local Walmart.  I hope this review was helpful!

Thanks for reading!
