Revlon Buttercup is from the Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel collection. It claims to wear for up to 11 days* (*but only if used with the Colorstay base and top coats). Usually I can get my manicures to last for 7-9 days with my Orly Bonder and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat. By then, I am ready to change my color! I don't think I would be able to wait 11 days haha.
Buttercup is a soft, creme pastel yellow. I love pastels for the spring, so get ready to see several pastels from my nail polish collection!
(sorry for the messy nails, did it in a rush)
This nail polish has a thin, watery consistency. When I first applied it, I took the amount I normally do from the bottle onto the brush, put it on my nails, and it was an overload of polish! I had to put some of it back, and redo the nail again. Anyways, I learned from that moment that this polish required thin layers.
I bought Buttercup in August and have been reserving it for the spring. I fell in love with the color at my local drugstore. Looking at it on my nails, I don't know if I like it as much. On its own in the bottle, it is beautiful, but I don't think yellow nails go well with me. (Oh well, it was worth a shot!) I have been wanting to try different shades and color ranges on me and I have almost every color in the rainbow in my collection (except green). Now I know I should stay away from yellow polishes! I'm still not sure if I will keep this polish on my hands all week, but I will try it the first few days and see how it goes.
