Most of you know that I have a love-hate relationship with Revlon polishes. This one teeters somewhere right in the middle. The formula was a nightmare to apply. I found it very runny- even when I had wiped off most of the color off the top, color from the top of the handle would run down and want to join the party. (This mostly happened when I had to put the brush back into the bottle while I waited for one coat to dry.) If I wiped off too much of the color- it would drag across my nails and create an uneven mess- i.e. pointer finger. I tried to layer on a coat of Seche Vite to counter the unevenness in application on my pointer finger, but alas, this could not be fixed.
On nails: Revlon Top Speed polish in Ocean
Revlon Top Speed polish in Ocean with camera flashI also hate it when I see brush strokes on my nails, which is why I tend to stay away from frosty polishes. You can see them if you put your face right up to my nails- trust me, it's there. I hate that. Also, bubbling. *sigh* Yes, those tiny little suckers started even before the polish was dry. Thank goodness for Seche Vite.

In all, a lovely color combination. I adore it. But formula has got to go. Thus, my love-hate relationship with Revlon polishes continues. By the way- Walgreens has Revlon products 40% off this week, which is why I picked up this polish in the first place.
Oceans of love,
