Revlon Nail Enamel - Elusive

It's been a while since I've used a Revlon nail polish, but I used to use them all the time a few years ago! Today I have Revlon's Nail Enamel in Elusive* ($5.95 CDN) to share with you, which is one of their new shades. This nail polish is perfect for this time of year, as the black base makes it a bit mysterious and elusive...

Revlon's Nail Enamels come packaged in a glass bottle with a black plastic lid, containing 0.5 oz of product. This bottle brings back memories of all of my old Revlon polishes, and all of the shades that were in my mom's collection. The brush for this range of polishes is fairly thin, which makes application easy, but you might have to use a few more strokes to cover each nail. I also noticed that this brush picks up a ton of product, so definitely be sure to swipe the brush against the bottle to remove all of the excess product.

The shade Elusive is comprised of a matte black base and bright blue/teal glitter pieces of varying sizes. I surprisingly don't have anything like this in my collection! I found that I had to use 3 coats of this polish, as the third coat really deepens the colour. Two coats would have been fine in a rush, but I did find the polish to lack a bit of depth with just two coats. I also made sure to add a top coat to really enhance the shine factor of this polish. Without a top coat, Elusive will dry to a matte-satin finish, but I personally prefer a shiny finish for most polishes. From afar, Elusive looks like a simple black/navy polish, but it looks absolutely gorgeous up close. I really love how the glitter in this polish is visible, but it isn't too overpowering.

  4. I reviewed this on my blog a while back too. I do like it but was slightly let down. The glitter is so much more evident in the bottle than it is when applied. And I was surprised about the matte finish!

    1. I kinda like that this isn't so in your face, it's different from my other glitter polishes! But ya, I wasn't a huge fan of the matte finish!
