I received two shades from this range, Flaming Matte – a deep orange, and Crimson Matte – a beautiful berry pink. These Matte enamels have very good pigmentation and go totally opaque in two coats. The first coat appears streaky as it dries but once you apply the second coat and it settles down to the velvet matte finish, there are no streaks – just bold, opaque colour. Both these shades look beautiful on our Indian skin tone.
As with almost all nail polishes, the Revlon Matte enamels too, don’t last long on me. Whether it is my nails or the fact that I am a hands on mom – almost no nail polish lasts more than a day on me. By the second day, it starts chipping even if I do apply a top coat. These Revlon polishes are no exception. Because of this, I can never be a good judge of nail polish wear time though if a polish lasts 3 days on my nails, you can be sure it must be exceptional.
One thing you need to remember with these matte polishes is to wear a base coat underneath them. The rich pigmentation, combined with it’s matte formulation give it a tendency to stain the nails so it is advisable to apply a base coat before applying these polishes.
While I prefer glossy, shiny nails, I really do like how the Revlon Matte Polishes look on my nails. The shades too, are very pretty and would look great on pretty much all skin tones. I also love the fact that Revlon has priced these polishes very affordably.
