Revlon Colorstay Polish Going on 9 Days Now + Nabi Polish Display at Walgreens

I put on the Revlon Colorstay nail polish on Sunday, April 1st, and now it's Monday, April 9th.  The polish was actually in perfect shape until Friday night when I hand-washed one of the dog's kennel towels in the hotel sink.  After that the polish started to lift off the nail on a couple of fingers.  Tonight, if I can get over the migraine I have now, I will finally remove this polish and put on some Sally Hansen nail polish strips.

I took the picture below last night, in the hotel room, so the polish is a week old in that picture.  I last touched up the tips a few days ago and since then have only been putting on a coat of Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat every morning.  Sorry about the lack of cleanup on the top coat; I didn't bring polish remover with me on our trip (so I'd have an excuse to go to local drugstores).

So, I went to a Walgreens in northeast Florida on our way north to Savannah, Georgia, with my excuse reason being needing some polish remover.  I saw a huge Nabi polish display (picture below), and I got very excited thinking it might be a display of the Nabi magnetic polishes that Scrangie found at her Walgreens (see her post here), but it was all crackle nail polish.  I never got into the crackle trend.  My sister-in-law likes crackle polish, though, which I only remembered after I had already left the store, or I would have bought her some bottles.  Anyway, for those of you who love crackle polish, this is an amazing assortment of colors, and the colors are vibrant and beautiful, and you can buy three bottles for $10!  We do not have any Nabi polishes at all in my local South Florida Walgreens stores.  Here's a picture of the display.

Below is a picture of my manicure today, in our hotel room in Savannah, Georgia.  I took the picture in the sunlight from the picture window in our hotel.  Day 9 of the Revlon Colorstay manicure!  Can you believe it?

Base coat, two coats of Revlon Colorstay Indigo Blue, 1 coat SV, 1 coat Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat, 2 coats Finger Paints Motley (blue-green flakies), 1 coat Seche Vite, and another coat of Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat each day for 7 more days.  That's 15 coats of polish, if my math is correct.

I will update the Colorstay polish posts if I get any staining when I try to remove the polish.

Thank you for reading my blog!


  1. WOW! Revlon color stay works.
    BTW, this color looks good on you.

    1. What I really liked about it was that one coat was enough (if you are good with painting your nails--I had to use a second coat because I'm not very skilled, my hands shake a lot, etc.). Thanks for the compliment. Just as I was about to remove the polish, my husband said the manicure was starting to grow on him. ;-)
