Revitanail Top Coat

By Melmeko @melmeko

Hi babes:-h Well, as per the norm lately, yet even moredrama’s have eventuated in my home life! ~X(Hmm, it all boils down to the joys of being amummy, LOL!:))This time………(wait for it:-w   ) my three year old daughter has ended upwith a broken collar bone and has been basically bed ridden (or unable to do anything for herself) so,your truly has needed to be at her ‘beckand call’ for the past week and quite frankly it’s starting to send me alittle bonkersb-(hehe;))Anyway, I’m trying to squeezein my ‘ME’ time whenever possible, tokeep up with my poor, neglected blog and several current beauty trials.I’m getting there slowly but surely (thanksto the frequent caffeine boosts~O)), whilst trying to keep my sanity as I go ;)
This is yet another product sent through to me from Tammerlyaka Pink Diva at Spolit, which just so happens to coincidewith a couple of my previous blogs featuring Revitanailproducts.Having already trialled andreviewed the RevitanailRidge Filler and the RevitanailNourishing Oil, I didn’t hesitate to put my hand up and take on the rather enjoyabletask (or playtime in the eyes of a beauty addict  :x  ) of test driving the RevitanailTop Coat.:)Here are my thoughts:
Atop coat is essential when doing my nails as it forms a hard, transparent protectivecoating over my nail polish and prevents chipping, flaking, peeling andsmudging, prolonging the color and the durability.It’s the final step of my manicure afterapplying a base coat and additional layers of coloured polish to ensure my manicurelasts the distance. It also completesthe presentation, so my nails are enveloped with a rich, glossy shine.The Revitanail Top Coatboasts the standard Revitanailpackaging, which looks classy and of high quality, however, whilst it doesn’tbrandish what I would classify as a budget price tag, the cost is reasonable incomparison to a similar product from some of the high end nail care brands.:)>-
Revitanail Top CoatLike the other polishes and nail care products I am familiarwith in the Revitanailrange, this top coat comes in a 14ml glass bottle with a decent size brushattached to the screw-top lid.Theformula has a thin consistency that makes it easy to apply from base to tip andit prompts a quick drying time without any bubbles or clumpiness.It is scented with the typical chemical odourI have come to expect from most mainstream nail care products and I have to sayit’s not a scent that I am fond of at all.:-<   Fortunately, the scent does deplete soonafter drying,   #:-S   although I must admit I would prefer not tosmell it at all, because it often triggers my fragrance sensitivity and inducesheadaches.:|I would advisepeople to use this product in a well ventilated area to avoid any issues causedby the strong fumes.*-:)That aside, the smooth shiny finish looksimmaculate and even works a charm on my bare nails, when I want them to adorn aflawless, well-groomed appearance.Italso helps to revamp my manicure, by re-applying the top coat to my nails everysecond day, I can extend the life of my polish, which normally starts lookingtacky after a the first day, because I am so hard on my hands and nails c/ogeneral day to day cleaning tasks around the home.The top coat shields my nails from generalwear and tear exceptionally well, more so than other top coats I havepreviously tried.=D>
Other than the unpleasant fragrance:-&I am actually happy with the performanceand longevity this top coat provides.:DIt doesn’t seem to dry out my nails, so Isuspect the ingredients (though not very kindto my nose) are quite hydrating and better for sensitive nails like mine ratherthan many commercial nail care products I’ve used that just damage my nail bed,resulting in brittle, peeling nails.#-o   My nails are actually in great shape at themoment, ever since I have been using the Revitanail range, so twothumbs up from me in that respect, as drying, toxic ingredients have alwayscaused havoc to my nails in the past.:-/I find the Revitanail Top Coatleaves my nails feeling stronger and harder, sealing my polish and keeping itlooking flawless longer, maintaining the color intensity and delivering asuper smooth, luminous finish that lasts and lasts.\:D/The results are clearly evident and Iwould indeed recommend it to anyone wanting a noticeable difference to their manicure,with a gorgeous, professional looking shine and ultimate protection guaranteeingthat the nails remain looking well polished and unmarred for an extendedperiod.<:-P   I rate it4 Stars out of 5(*)(*)(*)(*) withthe overbearing pungency being the only letdown.
Do you use a top coat as an essential step in your nail careroutine?  Do you find it makes your manicure last longer or even helps toprotect your nails?  :-?  Have you tried any Revitanail products yourself,if so how would you rate your experience with them?
