Revlon Tahitian Coast & Mayan Riviera

Howdie!  Oops, I missed posting yesterday!  Just for that I will show you 2 polishes in one post 😉  I’m also doing this because I can’t stand these polishes and they are no longer in my collection because of it, but thought I would share anyways because someone out there might like them.

Both pictures are 2 coats of each polish.  All I can say about the formula, application AND removal of these polishes is “GROSS!”  The formula is thick and gloopy and it gets worse as you are polishing, like instant thickening and drying.  And removal, wow!  I even tried the foil method (with my Julep Party’s Over Glitter Removal caps) and the polish did NOT want to come off.  The, after scrubbing the glitters (after sitting with the caps on for 10 minutes), there was glitter everywhere.  *sigh*  I guess I shouldn’t have had high hopes for these since they are basically a mix of different sized glitters in slightly tinted bases, and they are “drugstore” brand, which I don’t normally have an issue with.  If you like textures similar to Zoya Pixies or Julie G Gumdrops, these are definitely not for you.  The texture of these is SUPER gritty, they catch on everything and I have an all around dislike for them.  They are much prettier in the bottles on the store shelf, and that’s where they should stay if you want my honest opinion.

I did wonder about Mayan Riveria and a glitter gradient with it, so I tried it out over 2 colours (no top coat) – Sinful Colors Exotic Green (left) and Julep Laura (right).  They definitely look much better like this, but because they are so gloopy, I think application would be a pain in the butt to have it look right on all 10 nails.

Sorry Revlon, this collection is a major fail for me 😦  What do you guys think?  I can’t be bothered to keep these in my collection because I know I will NEVER use them again, and I don’t want to burden someone else with them, so these are headed into the garbage 😥  RIP polishes.

  1. I’m sorry you had a terrible experience! But I’m REALLY glad my boyfriend didn’t bring these home to me at any point…he likes to pick out crazy glitters…
