Revlon - Touch of Mauve Review

Okay, this is another Revlon nail polish review.

It's not that I'm a big fan of them, it's because they're the nail polishes that I have easy access on & still quite in my budget.

Anyway, I went to a Revlon counter a couple days ago specifically to buy their Cotton Candy nail polish I talked a couple months ago but to no avail, so I bought this one instead.

So, here it is Touch of Mauve

It's a pinkish nude color with purple/silver micro-shimmer. The micro-shimmer doesn't really show on nails, but you can see it in the bottle.

the formula is okay. They're not the best to work with, but hey, it's Revlon, I never really get along that well with their application mainly because of the brush (the formula itself is actually not much of a problem, but I like my brush wider). With this one though, the formula is a tinsy bit hard to layer with cos they make your nail kinda bumpy and a bit hard to get a smooth finish without topcoat.

Anyhoo, the opaqueness is good enough. You can get away with 2 coats, I suppose, but I think 3 coats is better.

This is with 1 coat and the nail line is actually still quite obvious.

This is 2 coats. It doesn't really show in the picture, but there's still a bit nail line peeking throuh and still very bumpy, so I decided on 3rd coat.

This one is 3 coats without topcoat.

With topcoat (really smoothen the bumpiness). The color is a bit different here because of the lighting, the 3rd coat photos is the one with the accurate color.

The close-up on the micro-shimmer. It's almost non-existen irl and you can't really see it. If you don't really look into it, it's like a creme finish. 

So, that's my opinion about Touch of Mauve.

I do love the color, because the nude does match my skintone, but the application I'm not really keen with. Would I buy this again if I ever run out? Yes, because this is one of only 3 nude nail polishes that I've found matches my skintone :)
