Hey There Polished People!!
I definitely buy a lot of “salon” type brands of nail polish- OPI, China Glaze, Orly, Essie (which is also pretty much a drugstore brand these days) and for whatever reason I tend to shy away from drugstore brands. I don’t even usually LOOK at them when I’m at the store- with the exception of my Sally Hansen Insta Dri polish for stamping and my Hard As Nails base coat. Every so often though I see people buying different drugstore brands and it reminds me that there are some REALLY AWESOME inexpensive polishes out there!! I have several Wet N Wild polishes that I love, and Revlon Whimsical was a polish I wanted SOOOO BAD till a little polish fairy was so sweet and sent me some, thank Ave (from Polish Pixelle)! There are lots of other great polishes that you can find at your local CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens or Fred Meyer, too, my favorite of which being Essence. I love Mr and Mrs Glitter, Little Miss Sunrise, and Fame Fatal among others. The latest “hot” drugstore polish, at least in my eyes, is Revlon Heavenly. I saw pictures of it on Instagram and the next time I was at Rite Aid I just had to see if they had it. What do you know? ONE bottle left. It was like it was just sitting there, waiting for me Ready to see it?
Revlon Heavenly is opalescent glitter that seems to mostly flash blue/green and occasionally orange in a pearly clear base. The blue/green glitters are small squares and the orange-ish glitters are small hexes.
This applies easily. The base for Revlon Heavenly is neither too thick nor too thin, the glitter comes out without any fishing, the only thing you may find the need to do is push the glitter around a little on the nail for a more even distribution. I didn’t push mine around and you can see that it’s slightly clumpy.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
YES, PLEASE!! I liked it over these base colors but I don’t think I’ve found it’s perfect pairing just yet. If you like shifty glitter and/or square glitter (a big yes to both, for me) you’ll love this polish!! Plus, Revlon Heavenly can be found ANYWHERE so go on out and get ya some!
How do you like these nails? I think next time I will layer this over Revlon Royal because I’ve seen that and it looked AWESOME!! What’s your favorite drugstore polish? Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!
