REVIEW: Revlon Nail Art ExpressionistSonya Benham
Earlier this year, Revlon released their Nail Art series consisting of three varieties: Moon Candy, Neon, and Expressionist. Each of these double-sided products comes with two polishes that can be used together to create the latest nail looks. Moon Candy comes with a dark shade and a glitter polish. Neon includes a white base coat that makes the neon shade even brighter. The most interesting version, for me, is Expressionist. It comes with two colors one with a regular polish brush and the other with a thin brush for drawing.
I had been eyeing this product for a couple months now. It’s hard not to be drawn to the bright and fun color combinations and unique packaging. Besides, Expressionist appeals to my love of nail art and my crafty side. Even though I have way more than my fair share of polishes, I finally gave in and bought it.
Here’s my review:
- Fun color combinations
- Clever design
- Dries quickly
- Drawing brush
- Polish is a little thick
- Narrow design seemed unstable
- Dries quickly
I really enjoy using this product. I love the fun colors and think the design possibilities are endless. The base coat was a bit thick for my taste and not as easy to apply as most polishes. I also worried that the bottle would tip over because each end is pretty small and narrow. But it was easier to draw with the drawing brush than I anticipated and I like the two-in-one design. It’s really portable and I can definitely see bringing this along with me to play with on summer getaways.
This polish dries quickly which I listed as a pro and a con. It’s nice to not have to wait too long for the lacquer to cure but it made drawing a little harder. In my humble opinion, it would be nice to have a little more time to work.
Overall, I would recommend Revlon Nail Art Expressionist. A few flaws aside, it’s pretty fun to play with and I always appreciate the chance to be creative!
