Revlon Top Speed in Wind Fall review and swatch

Okay, I'll admit it. I got horribly sucked in by another OzSale.com nail polish sale and bought several (12!) bottles of Revlon and Sally Hansen lovelies at about $4 a pop. At that teeny weeny price I would have been basically losing money if I didn't buy them right? Right!
Pretty colour, godawful nails
Wind Fall is a gorgeous jade creme, with a hint of silver shimmer in the bottle that doesn't translate to nail. With two coats, it's an intense creamy aqua-green which I actually love. I scored my share of compliments on the colour from coworkers, the guy who makes me four coffees a day and a talkative bus driver. It's unusual enough to be a statement nail, but not such a bright green that I look like I have monster claws or have an icky cuticle infection. Yep, all class here.

I of course managed to smudge it after doing two coats, but other than that the formula has worn well. I'm seeing a little fading and wear on the tips after four days.

I bought this for an ultra sweet $3.50, but the RRP is $15.95 for all you not hopelessly addicted to discount sale sites.

  1. Oooh, I haven't tried mine as yet. Unfortunately I've been having a bit of a bad nail month where they just keep breaking so I've given up on polish for the moment. I can't wait to try this one now that I've seen it on you.

    1. I know what you mean, my nails break constantly. I'm just lucky to have long nail beds! I think it would give toes a nice flash of colour too, maybe pop it on them?

  2. I love that place!! But the shipping takes wayyy too long. Brandsexclusive is fast and efficient and I've received my packages at least a week before the estimated due date!

    My order for China Glaze nail polish got approved two weeks ago and they still haven't ordered the products from the supplier. Iffy. =/

  3. God, the shipping time drives me crazy too. I use Brandsexclusive too, but I've been a bit iffy about them ever since they sent me open make-up and a chipped perfume bottle!

  4. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to
    see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!
