Hi there lovely people!
My regular readers will know how much I love nail polish, and they will also know that I am a fan of Makeup Revolution, but all their chosen bloggers seem to be posting about make up and not giving the gorgeous nail polish any love at all. So I was dead happy when Mark put in an order for a few nail polishes for me, amongst other things. I chose the collection “Full Hopes and Dreams” There are 6 nail polishes in the collection, with the offer of buy 5 get 1 free. I do think that the description of the nail polish collections are quite deceiving, it states “Buy all 6,and get 1 free”
Firstly, let me say that I am only showing 5 of the 6 nail polishes from this collection because I have actually already reviewed one of the shades before, a very dark blue one that I had in a goody bag given to me at the brand launch of Makeup Revolution. I shall leave a link at the end of this post for you to peruse should you like too.
A pretty metallic grey, it seems to be quite matte looking so I think a top coat is needed to make this one shine. I applied 3 coats to get the coverage I liked. I do like the barrel-shaped bottles and the long top is nice to hold for application, the brush is plenty thick enough for my length of nails, but I think for longer nails it will be a struggle to get even application. I do seem to have got visible brush strokes too.
One of my favourites in the collection, a gorgeous grey shade (grey nail colours are my go to nudes for my nails as they are anti ageing) this gave me the coverage I wanted in two coats, and this time it has a sheen to the finish when it’s dry, which incidentally takes no time at all to become touch dry. I like this colour a lot.
For me this is more of a baby pink rather than a lilac shade, it’s very pale but I do love the colour a lot. It started out quite chalky looking as I was applying it but I applied 3 coats to get the finish I wanted, and again it doesn’t take long to dry at all.
My favourite shade in the whole collection, its a blue/purple shade and very anti ageing for the hands. It took two coats to get the finish I wanted and this one too has a lovely shine to it. A really gorgeous nail polish.
This one is a bit hit and miss for me, it was actually drying too quickly. It seemed with each swipe of the brush it left a streaky looking finish, it was drying as I was using it. I ended up with four coats of this one to get it smooth. I love the colour, it’s really very Summery and cheerful.
So what’s my opinion of Makeup Revolution nail polish? I like them very much, and it doesn’t bother me that I have to use quite a bit of product to get a good coverage, after all to buy them singly they are only £1.00 and to buy a collection of 6 it’s just £5.00.
