Color me impressed!

Revlon’s ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel line has quickly become my favorite drugstore brand polish line. I’ve had nothing but good luck with all the polishes I have tried from the line but since Revlon claims this line is a longwear line I wanted to do a wear test.

On their website Revlon claims this polish wears up to 11 days and is “shatter proof”. I didn’t make it 11 days, but I did make it 6.

I applied Revlon ColorStay Provence on a Wednesday and wore it until the following Tuesday. For a base coat I used Julep, and for a top coat I used Revlon ColorStay.

Overall, I am exceedingly impressed with how well this polish wore. I had no major chips or cracks, just tip wear. The biggest difference between my day 1 manicure and my day 6 manicure was the amount of shine. The manicure did dull quite a bit over the 6 days.

Below the jump there is a picture of my nails on day 6 along with a macro shot. The tip wear really is quite minimal for the amount of time I wore this manicure.

One thing is for sure….this turned out a heck of alot better than my last wear test!

    I have had good luck with most shades in this collection with stay power – but like you, I don’t get 11 days! And their topper and base don’t help IMO. I get much better wear time when I use my go to base (Orly Nail Armor) and SV for a topper. I went nuts for this when it first came out and got almost all the shades the collection came in – a definite over-kill in my collection now! There are maybe 5 shades in it that I go back to wear more than 1 time and there are some in my never been tried category still. This is one I do like it’s not too milky/chalky white for me like many pastels can be.

      I haven’t used the top coat enough to have a definite opinion on it but so far I think it’s just mediocre. SV, on the other hand, I hate! Top Coats are so personal!

    I have the Provence – in spite of a good base coat and top coat, it chips on my nails after barely 24 hours. I even tried using it over a coat or two of some China Glaze that stays on a week (unaided), it didn’t work much better. I’m gutted, I love this colour…

What do you think?
