Hey there polished people!
This week has been so nice here!! The weather has been fantastic. Even on Mother’s Day it was blazing hot (okay that’s like 90 in Pacific Northwest-talk) and my mom and I laid out in the sun. I have been able to sunbathe a little over the past week (I wear sunscreen!!) and I’m starting to get a pretty good tan going on! Time to set up my pool!! 😀 Since I’m getting a little color, I thought a super-light pink would look nice on my fingers and I’d like it. Well, I was mostly wrong. Granted I wasn’t as tan as I am now because I tried this several days ago. Anyway, let’s see how it looks and you can decide if it’s worth your 3 bucks 🙂
Popular is a super-light pink jelly (or maybe just super-sheer creme?) base with plenty of large and small silver glitter in it. I inverted the bottle while I prepped my nails and I didn’t have a problem with the glitter coming out and, being a drugstore brand, I was impressed with the amount of glitter in the bottle. It’s not too sparse at all!
The application was non-problematic. The brush is kinda fluffy but it didn’t bug me or cause any problems. It is a little sheer so you need a few coats. I can’t remember for 100%, but I’m pretty sure I used 3 coats here. It doesn’t dry super shiny like a jelly (which is what makes me think it’s not technically a jelly) so these nails have a coat of Seche Vite on top to get that nice, shiny look . 🙂
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
I just didn’t care for this color. I liked the formula just fine, liked the silver glitters and the jelly sandwich look but idk… it just didn’t wow me. I thought about keeping it to swap (I’m working on a swap list) but then decided that since I bought it at Rite Aid and they have such a generous return policy (IF you keep your original receipt) I’d just return it and get a different polish. If you like light pinks I definitely recommend you try this polish though because it’s nice for what it is. Just make sure you invert the bottle because I hear these Revlon bottles hoard more glitter than I hoard pens. And that’s a LOT.
Are you all in a summery mood these days? Do you like laying out in the sun? Also- since this is technically a nail polish blog- do you like this polish and how has your experience with Revlons been? As always thanks so much for reading and Happy Polishing!!! 😀
