Review: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel

I picked this up a while ago, during my "Perplex" hunting days but never got around to trying it out. It has sat on my little bathroom shelf just waiting for it's turn. It has made for a good ring holder, but I thought I'd better give it a try before it got too depressed and tried to jump.
Revlon's Top Speed line claims to dry in 60 seconds, but I found that this shade failed. I applied one coat waited a minute (as directed) and then a second coat. I then gave my nails at least 3 minutes. Surely that would do it? No, when I was reaching for the camera I smudged my thumb nail and during my photo shoot, my pinkie. By that time my nails had at least 8 -10 minutes drying time. I haven't tried any other shades from this line, so the poor drying speed could just be a glitch in this shade.
Metallic is a silver metallic with silver micro shimmer. The polish itself is on the thicker side, so I had to be careful to apply thin coats as I think this would end up looking thick on the nail quite easily. The formulation this line claims to have a top coat built into it, but the nail polish still feels a bit soft once dry, so I would recommend taking the time and using a good top coat with this anyway.
Overall, I like the shade, formulation is just okay; it definitely did not live up to the fast drying claims. I have seen some great shades from this line, so I would try others.
Have you tried any Top Speed polishes? What did you think?
