Revlon Nail Art Expressionist Silhouette Swatch And Review
As many of know might be aware that Revlon got these new flashy nail art range with loads of other goodies in the Indian market recently. The nail art have three categories. One of the categories is Expressionist - A combination of two colors with one color having a normal brush and other having a nail art stripper brush. Unfortunately, I already had the similar colors of the Expressionist range in my vanity. The only 'unique' one was Silhouette.
Here, is how the brushes are both of colors. They are two different colors joined in the middle. When you use the brush of one color, you can leave the other one hanging in the wand. That does not make it heavy.
The n*de beige with micro shimmer is my new n*de favorite. It is a bit creamy in texture and you need 2 coats max to give a great look but even one coat does the job fine. The application is easy. I have no complains with the formula. I never found any issues while applying. You can see a tiny bubble type thing on the index fingernail but its there because I skipped buffering my nails.
I tried the conical french look with both because frankly the combination is hardly noticeable. I did a plaid design once but the design hardly showed up properly. So, for swatching I tried this. I had no intentions of doing polkas again so, I went to my favorite angled french (also done 1.5 years back here). Not bad but not a great idea either. Even this was not properly showing (check the first image) so, clicked it in more light so that the metallic color will reflect more to distinct from the beige.
This was reflecting in natural light so, I shot this in low light to show how nice the color is. I am loving this metallic taupe. Another color which was missing in my vanity. Every metallic taupe I discovered was leaning toward gold but thankfully this one does not. My complain here with with the formula. Its very runny. For a nail art stripper, you need a thick formula for better control and ease.
Overall - I loved it. For 300 INR, I got 2 unique colors in my vanity which last long for my nails. I faced not chipping or fading for straight 7 days! I changed the polish after that. Can I complain?
But, I will.
I wish the formula for the metallic color was thicker. It was too runny to be usable for real nail art job.
Also, somehow the combination is not striking enough. So, I will recommend this for girls who want to lay low but still wish to experiment with color. The beige is my new everyday office favorite.
I wish I could buy more but I already have similar colors with me. I have spotted two shades on some international blogs. I will go and check on those next time. If I buy them then the swatches will be legendary!!
It would have been great if at least one of them had a black stripper. I would have recommend that one to everybody. Black strippers are the ones mainly required for most nail arts.
