Current Favorite: Base Coat & Top Coat

Today's featured products are Revlon's ColorStay Base Coat and Top Coat! I had never been one to think too much about my base coats or top coats. I'd always buy those 2-in-1 base coat/top coat polish which always worked fine for me! Upon watching a video on YouTube I saw a blogger review these saying how she couldn't believe how long it had made her polish last! I didn't even bother looking for reviews and just decided "what the heck?" and they were on sale as well! 

I first tried these coats (I feel like I'm talking about jackets and parka's haha!) over my, then new, Deborah Lippmann polishes. Those manicures lasted me a week and a half with minor tip wear before I started to scrape them off my nails. I wasn't completely sure if that was the nail polish itself or these base and top coats. So I then decided to use these with a polish I was vaguely familiar with wear time! To my surprise the manicure lasted a really long time! I mean there was minor tip wear by the end of week 2 but that's still pretty amazing! The top coat also leaves your nails nicely glossed! I've often heard it being compared to the ever so cult favorite Seche Vite which I have never used myself. 

The last thing I have to say on this power nail duo is that I love how they make your nail color ... well, stay! Usually with all my other coats, by Day 3 the color on my nail would bubble up underneath (does that make sense?) which made it that much easier for me to pick at it and pull it off my nail. With the Revlon ColorStay Base Coat and Top Coat I find that I don't have to worry about repainting my nails because I have to, I repaint them because I want to! Which is the best kind of praise I can give to a base coat and top coat. I highly, highly, recommend you gals give it a chance! You have my 100% guarantee that you shan't be disappointed!
