ABC challenge: Revlon Indigo Night

Hi everyone!

Time for letter R and I picked a worldwide popular brand: Revlon. I quite like this brand (both make-up and nail polish) but I had never tested their Colorstay nail polishes. ABC challenge was a good chance to do so!

My choice is Revlon Indigo Night (180) which is a lovely cobalt blue despite the name. Formula is fantastic, it's so creamy and dries extremely shiny. Just be warned it's very watery so you gotta be careful not to flood your cuticles, which I totally did and I had to do some major clean up.

Two coats, no top coat.

As you can see it's extremely shiny on its own so I was kinda curious to check if a top coat would make any change. I recently bought Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond top coat, which lots of people were raving about.

In the below photo I only applied this top coat on one of my nails. Can you guess which one? I swear there's no visible difference.

Did you guess the top coated nail? It's my middle.

Despite not seeing any difference right when I applied top coat there was actually a BIG difference the day after. Fact is I woke up with bed sheet marks on all of my nails except for the one with top coat! And I painted my nails at noon, go figure! You'd better use a top coat for speeding up drying time which is obviously not fast at all.

Other than the dry time issue which can be easily solved I must say I am absolutely in love with this shade, it's just gorgeous! Do you agree?

  1. OMG!!! *_* Loooooooooveeee this beautiful blue! And yes, it's not at all possible to find which finger nail is top coated! I must say, it's a very impressive polish in color and quality! Lovely swatches! :-)

  3. Per quanto mi riguarda, non è possibile evitare di usare il top coat. Ora dovrò provare anche il top coat Revlon! Indigo Night è certamente nelle mie corde.

    1. A volte non lo uso proprio per vedere lo smalto arriva al giorno dopo o se resiste al lavaggio capelli!

  4. Peccato per l'asciugatura molto lenta, ma il colore è bellissimo! :-)

  5. E un colore bellissimo! Adoro questi tipi di blu. Io non faccio mai una manicure senza il topcoat (a meno che non stia facendo swatch di tutta una collezione, in quale caso non uso il top coat).

    1. A volte non lo uso quando mi sembra che sia già asciutto, o anche per vedere quanto resiste senza!

  7. I love this shade! I hear you on the sheet marks in the morning, before I discovered quick dry top coat, the same thing would happen, no matter how early in the day I did my nails. Now, I don't even chance it, no matter how beautiful a polish's original finish might be.

  8. Oh! Nice and shiny! Sometimes mainstream cremes are just as good as indies.
