BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge: Revlon Nail Art Expressionists in Ulterior Motif

Hello guys! How's your day going? Me, I am super duper excited for my out-of-town trip this weekend! But don't fret because even if I'm away, I will still be posting a review and a nail art tutorial for you guys.

Speaking of nails, I received this cool nail polish from my April BDJ Box and I was super excited to try it so I figured why not include this as an entry for the BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge. The rule is to choose and use any product included in your box and document your 7 day use of it.

Revlon Nail Art Expressionist in Ulterior Motif

You see, I love nail art and nail polishes, but I never had a nail polish on my hands for more than 5 days. I don't know why but nail polishes on my hands easily chip off which is a big no-no for me, I tend to get OC and remove them right away. So doing this 7-Day Challenge is a huge thing for me.

So what I did was to apply 2 coats of the base color polish, then a one coat of the glitter polish. I didn't apply a top coat, so that I can really see the longevity of the nail polish. Here are the pictures that I took everyday of my left hand (my dominant hand, yes, I'm a leftie).

Day 1 

Day 2. No difference from Day 1. 

Day 3. Looks like new. 

Day 4. Minimal fading on the tips of the nails.
Also, notice that there is a small chip on the middle finger.

Day 5. The chip on the middle finger got a little bigger.

Day 6. The chip on the middle finger got bigger again.
Also, there is a chip on the tip of my ring finger.

And here is the comparison of Day 1 and Day 7:

Left: Day 1, Right: Day 7

Okay, don't mind the colors as the lighting here are different, but the color is still pigmented and the polish is still shiny. I think the main factor why the polish chipped because I didn't put a top coat. I was actually impressed that the big circle glitters didn't come off, I was expecting they will. Overall, I am impressed with this product. Next time I'll be using this polish duo, I'll make sure to put some top coat over it.

Have you tried any of the products in your April box? You may also join the BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge and get a chance to win a Revlon Gift Pack!
