Mini Rant

I am not usually that disappointed with products I purchase because, generally, I research them before I get them. Most recently, I regret Revlon's Tropical Temptation nail polish. It has been on everyone's must have list for this summer and has gotten rave reviews. It is a gorgeous coral color that really pops on the nails. After it dried during my initial application, I noticed dozens of tiny air bubbles in the lacquer itself. I attributed it to my being anxious and not giving each coat enough time to dry. I tried a second time and got the same result. Yesterday I thought I would give it one last try. After each individual coat (a base coast, two coats of color, and a top coat) I waited almost fifteen minutes for it to dry. It took nearly an hour-I really wanted to beat those air bubbles! At first, I felt victorious as I didn't see any of the all too familiar bubbles. It was only about twenty minutes after I had finished that I looked down to check the state of my nails that I noticed the bubbles had returned.

I have never had a problem like this before and I do my nails twice a week. Since I have tried multiple times and multiple ways, I can now blame it on the polish itself. Has anyone else had this problem?

yeah! this happened to me once with a rimmel nail polish but doesnt always happen with the same one. maybe we shook the bottle too hard?!?!

I actually never shake the bottle because, you're right, it causes bubbles. Instead, I roll the bottle between my hands--it mixes the product without causing bubbles! I guess it's just something we'll have to live with!
