Revlon Top Speed Royal

i was lucky enough to be at the barn yesterday when the farrier came to trim Aramis' feet... so, i got to watch a horsey pedicure :D i learned that horses' hooves are really similar to human toenails... i had no idea they had so little feeling in their feet and that the hoof is trimmed back, just like a giant toenail. pretty cool!

today's polish is Revlon Top Speed Royal. it's a deep blue polish with a jelly finish. the color is beautiful, but i'm not a big fan of the formula. it refused to stay at the tips of my nails, even though i added extra polish to the tips between coats AND wrapped them. even with three coats, there was still a bit of visible nail line as well. i really wish this polish was more opaque, because the color and finish are stunning! it dries shiny, but really comes alive with a shine topcoat added... super glossy.

three coats Royal, one coat Seche Vite.

the VNL is a bit less noticeable in person... it's like the camera has X-ray vision!

Happy Tuesday! Ria :)
