Revlon Colorstay - Bare Bones

Monday 8 April 2013

While out shopping I picked up Revlon Colorstay in the shade Bare bones (300). Like everything else I pick up on a whim - I liked the colour, and deciding I didn't have enough nudes in my collection this little beauty was mine!

So I bought this with the intention of having beautiful nude nails, and like a lot of things I buy it goes in the "to review pile". When I eventually got round to try this out, it was a little disappointed - but it wasn't Revlon's fault. It was my own. I obviously think of myself more tanned than I actually am, as this colour just washed me out. It barely looked like I had any nails at all - which was kind of freaky!

So I quickly removed the polish and picked something to give my hands a little bit of life, and placed this safely back on my nail polish rack to tackle again once I'm a bronzed goddess!

Now it's not that I don't wear nudes - I do, I just think this shade was TOO nude for the winter me. But I still love the colour so I really do hope I get to wear it again sometime soon.

The application however was smooth with the easy to hold brush, and colour pigmentation wise it was average - you needed at least 2-3 coats to get the full colour of the polish. I'd say the colour is more a coffee nude - a nice milky latte colour than some of the pinky nudes you get.

You'll be able to pick this up from most Revlon stands, in they UK they are priced £7.99 from Boots (link) which have a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment, in Malta I'm sure you'll be able to pick this up from Franks or one of the pharmacies for around the 10 Euro mark.

What your favourite Revlon colorstay shade? I'd like to try more colours. 


  1. It is quite a different colour isn't it?? Weird how different polishes can be once actually applied rather than just seen in the bottle! Just wait for the summer :) x

  2. I never really wear pale or nude colours on my nails, but I really want to get into them more for S/S and this looks lovely
