Review: Revlon Extra Life No Chip Top Coat ♥

I am so sooo sorry for the lack of posts lately (once again!), time for the excuses.... i have been super duper busy (standard, right?!) - i have band for three hours a day & am so tired when i get home that i just want to sleep.
I have also been out & about lately - i went to Summerfest yesterday/last night with some girlies and saw Tokyo Police Club & Passion Pit - SOOO much fun ahhhh, i might do a post on it :)
If you want to keep up to date with me though, you can always follow me on Twitter hehe - i'm always tweeting :)

This post is going to be a review on Revlon's Extra Life No Chip Top Coat, which i mentioned in a haul a couple weeks ago & some lovelies were interested in it, so i thought i'd do a review after testing it out!
Now, i've tried quite a few top coats in my nail-polish life, all basically drugstore, and i have to say this is my favorite.  The top coats i've tried have either taken a long time to dry, kind of defeating the purpose, or they've not provided the shine i desire :)
I have to say, i'm usually quite cheap when it comes to nail polishes, so i generally stick to the drugstore!

The brush is plastic & thin, which actually makes it quite easy to apply.

Consistency: The consistency of it is actually quite watery, which some girls may be annoyed by, but i'm personally not because it's really not to hard to work with & every other aspect of this product is really nice.
Drying time: The Revlon Extra Life No Chip Top Coat dries in fairly decent amount of time - i mainly paint my nails a few hours before i go to bed, and that usually means i wake up with big creases & lines in my polish - i didn't get that with this really, and if i did, they were quite subtle.
Shine: The shine this gives your nails is also sooo nice!  It looks really lovely, and it actually stays shiny & pretty for a long time!  Some top coats give your nails shine, but after a couple days it fades a bit, but i didn't get that with this!
Chipping/fading: The main thing this top coat is advertised for is anti-chippage & making your polish last longer on your nails.  I've used this top coat for my last two at-home manicures, and i can honestly say that i didn't get any chipping either times for at least 5-7 days, but i did get a bit of fading at the tips.
Price: This top coat by Revlon is really affordable, in the $4-5 range.

I would definately recommend this top coat to anyone who's looking for an affordable top coat.  I would definitely repurchase this myself!


I hope i helped you girls! (:
