Revlon Matte Suede Nail Polish - Ruby Ribbon

Revlon Matte Suede
Good Afternoon Ladies! I'm snuggled up in my house right now with a hot cup of tea (so snowy out) after a stressful morning! What better way to relieve stress than to do some blog posts! 

What I have here is Revlon's Matte Suede Nail Polish in Ruby Ribbon! I'm on a huge matte nail polish kick, ever since it came out! And personally, I think this "suede" look is even better! 


The idea of this polish is to look like suede, well, it does! Its pretty much a matte finish polish with really fine, soft shimmer to create a more 3D sueded effect. So far, I have only spotted these in three colours, this red, a forest green and a really beautiful white. I hope there is more out there because I am in love with this finish! 

I found a few tricks through trial and error that helped me get the finish and colour I wanted. I find the best way to apply this particular polish to get the true red seen in the bottle is to only apply one coat. It also looks more like a "suede" if you apply only one coat. The above photos are of my nails with two coats and I find it started to look more glossy and a really deep wine colour!

Pros:

- Finish! Amazing, different "suede" finish
- Colour - really pretty deep, classy red
- Price - $2.99 CAD 
- Wear - even without a top coat, this wears better than most of my other polishes
- Dries super fast
- Applies seamlessly

Cons:

- Cannot use a topcoat, ruins the finish
- I also find it applies better without a base coat
- Limited Colour selection (unless there are more I don't know about!)

This is only my second Revlon nail polish and I have been really impressed with them so far! The price is great, the colours are great and the wear is great! I definitely recommend picking up these polishes! I have yet to try the "speed dry" collection, let me know what you think of those if you have tried them! How do you guys like the "suede" look?
