NOTD: Revlon Colorstay 'French Roast'


I feel really bad posting this right after my not-so-great (though apparently hilarious [y'all flatter me]) Revlon Colorstay Foundation review but... well, it is what it is, such is life, etcetera etcetera, so on and so forth.
And, to be honest, this isn't a BAD review of this polish; it just wasn't what I was expecting so it's not going to be as enthusiastic as my typical polish posts!




French Roast had me at "oh hey" (when do I ever say 'hello'?).
The Revlon Colorstay line of polishes is one of my favorite drugstore formulations and the little multicolored (think funfetti) sparkles were the hug turned heart squeezer (lil' tease) for me (and my credit card).


And while the polish itself is as wonderful as its Colorstay polish brethren in formula, the polish itself really was, as I said above, a tease. Even the macro shot above is a teaser since, in real life, you can't see the beautiful sparkles at ALL on the nails.
**SOB SESSION**
Aside from that, this is a beautiful brown polish very reminiscent of a Hershey's chocolate bar.
I was just sad since I already own a Hershey brown polish so now I've basically got two of the same color lying around on my nail polish shelf; I wish the glittery goodness showed up on my nails to justify this purchase!!

Have you tried Revlon's 'French Roast'?
Were you as disappointed as I was with the tease-tastic glitter (or did I just get a dud)?
What's your favorite color in the Revlon Colorstay polish line?
Do share!!

  2. These look really nice it's a shame the glitter doesn't show up more clearly.. maybe salvage it by going over it with a glittery top coat? x
