Colour Prevails Reality Star Swatch & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a polish from a new to me brand called Colour Prevails, this brand is in the drugstores so its nice and accessible. I've been meaning to try out this brand but it's been a long time since I've been to a Wagreens so I just finally grabbed a bottle when I went by to get something else a few days ago. What drew me to trying this brand out was the interesting butterfly wing handle which you can see a photo of at the end of the post. The handle makes it so that you have really nice control over the brush and how you are applying the polish.

The shade I bought is called Realty Star and its a dusty cobalt blue creme. There wasn't a huge variety of shades at the Walgreens I went to so this was the only one that really struck my fancy. The formula was great, it was very easy to apply and had good opacity. I really enjoyed the handle and how it fit in my hand to apply the polish. I used 2 coats for the photos below.  

Apologies for not holding the bottle in the swatch photos, the handle while awesome makes holding the bottle for photos difficult.





Colour Prevails is available at Walgreens and online at http://colourprevails.com, these retail for $8 each. While I do like the color, formula and special handle the bottles are on the small side (they are 0.32 fl oz., OPI are 0.50 fl oz. just for comparison) and for $8 I don't think they are something I'll be running to buy more of.

  1. I find the handle kind of ugly, to be honest! And at this price point, I expect full sized bottles. It's drug store, not Chanel! The color is nice at least :)

  2. I always like a nice vibrant blue. To be honest, I am not a fan of the bottle, but the polish is nice.

  3. I like the color, but I am not a fan of the handle. $8 is a bit much for drugstore and such a small bottle.Great review!

  6. Maybe I'm just a sucker for anything different but I LOVE the handle! I can understand during painting and photo posing it is quite annoying though - I think that about the square lids on Nails Inc bottles!! I do love the colour though :) xx

  9. I was wondering why the handle wouldn't let you take the photos till you said you have a pic of it. Now it's really obvious :)) Too bad there's just 0.32 for that price.

  10. Those bottle handles are the most gorgeous thing ever, but storing them might be a bit annoying.
