Revlon's Bare Bones

Morning Loves!

Today I have a swatch of Revlon's Colorstay in Bare Bones. When my family went away this was another gem they picked up for me. Recently I've been getting more into nude or 'neutral' polishes. They can look really classy and lengthen your nails, you just need to find one that works with your skin tone.

This one isn't too bad against my skin. It's a little cooler than my skintone so there is a little contrast. I hate when it looks like my nails have disappeared into my skin. Not an attractive look lol.

This polish was nice and opaque in 2 coats, it was a little streaky in the first coat, but evened out nicely on the second. This is a true beige colour. There aren't any pink undertones hiding in there which I really enjoy.

I didn't realize how sausage like my fingers look in the above picture until I uploaded it... hmmm. Oh well.
These swatches are without a top coat, so it really is nice and shiny!

The size of these polishes is only 0.4oz, so a little smaller than traditional Revlons. I only wore this for about a day so there was no tip wear or chipping for me. I have heard that the Colourstay polishes do last for a little longer than normal, if you know let me know!

What do you think of nude polishes? Do you have a favourite?

Sincerely Stephanie

  4. It's a lovely colour, is it anything like Revlon Smoky Canvas do you know?

    1. It's pretty similar, I think that Smoky Canvas has a deeper taupe colouring to it than Bare Bones. I think this is actually closer to OPI's Skull and Glossbones just not quite as gray as S&G.

  5. I'm not really into nudes by themselves-but it would make a nice base with some darker stamping on it perhaps?

    1. I used it as a base for a bright splatter mani here http://sincerelystephaniee.blogspot.ca/2012/03/cocktail-brights-splatter.html
      I only lasted about 12 hours with just the nude lol

      It would be cool with some dark stamping I think! You could probably come up with something epic for it. I love your stamping :)

  7. Hi Stephanie. Sorry I'm commenting anonymously, I just don't feel like creating an account to make a quick comment. Anyway I just got this polish today and while I think it looks great on your nails, it looks disgusting on mine. It just totally clashes with my skintone. Too bad because I thought it was such a pretty color in the bottle.

    1. awww I'm sorry to hear that! Nude's are tricky and finding one that looks great against your skin tone can take some time! I'm sure you will find one that looks awesome!
