This is the second of the Maybelline Color Show Vinyl polishes I picked up earlier this week, this one is Record Red. A hot tomato red with the vinyl finish similar to Black to the Basics.
Like the previous polish, this one dries to a matte vinyl style polish. What you see above its two coats over a base of Essence Anti Nail Split sealer. Formula is good, its runny without being floody (if that makes sense) and coverage is good. Two coats does provide more even coverage than just one, hence two coats . It dries quickly and if you do happen to dink it, you can patch it up quickly.
Wear, as you might expect if a none topped coated polish, isn’t great. You can get a good day before wear starts to show and if you end up doing lots of jobs and house work, be warned – its going to chip.
That said I do like this, I love the effect it gives. Even with a matte top coat over a red polish, the effect is not as waxy looking.
These should be out on a shelf near you, if they aren’t already. G over at Nouveaus Cheap thinks these look similar to the new Wet N Wild Matte shades that are out for fall in the US. She has a good eye so she is probably right.
Let me know what you think in the comments! Have you seen these out where you are yet?
