Revlon Colorstay French Roast

This manicure is Revlon Colorstay in French Roast. French Roast is a warm poopy brown with subtle rainbow microshimmer particles. I was attracted to it because I don't think I have anything like it in my rather large collection. Unfortunately, the formula stinks. I will have to try it again with thinner, as is it was thick and runny for me and applied patchy. You can tell from the finished manicure that it didn't apply very well.
This mani is one coat Spa Ritual Lacquer Lock bc, one coat CND Stickey bc, three coats of French Roast, one coat of Revlon Quick Dry tc, and one coat of Seche Vite.


  1. That's a shame about the application. I think I'll have to check it out anyway because the shimmer is really interesting - it would definitely be unique in my collection (which is rather large as well, at almost 550 polishes). Thanks for the swatch.

  2. ooooh, i like this a LOT more than i thought i would! i've had some trouble with the thickness of these polishes too. definitely need some thinner
