BrAnD nEw CoLoUr!! aka product review aka ugh

Posted on

yeah.. so… i totally bought this polish on an impulse, i was at the drugstore which is the most exciting store in town, besides the lcbo i guess, and i was like, well im already here, i might as well buy some nailpolish too. makes sense. this was one of revlons BRAND NEW SHADES and i was fooled into thinking baby blue polish with pink and blue sparklies that looked like a birthday cake would translate well into a nail polish. and im also trying to be open minded about glitter polishes now. well, despite looking deceptively like a super yummy fun birthday cake in the bottle, this stuff kinda missed the mark of awesome by about 5 yards.  the baby blue base is thin thin thin, i mean, how opaque can it be if its gotta show the glitter? so i put a coat of white on underneath. to be fair, the white i have is also cheap and crappy.  then in order to make it actually look blue, i had to put on 3 coats of this stuff. not to mention there was like 1 glitter piece per brush stroke, so in order to make there be more glitter i had to keep applying and applying. it literally took like 19 hours for this to dry, i had so many layers on. OH YEAH!!! and also!!!! even with a hundred coats, i still didnt think it was glittery enough, so i ended up putting on a holographic sparkle topcoat on top!! it was like a millimetre thick. in the pic with the bottle, check out my pinkie, i had to redo that one the next day (i smudged it before the 19 hour mark in which it finally dried) and didnt bother to put on a glitter topcoat so you can see how that finger is less sparkly.  in sum, this stuff prlly wont get used much. maybe for toes. maybe for sacrifice to the nailpolish gods.

  1. that sucks, i usually really like the revlon stuff. i like where they were going with it, but seems like the effect could be better achieved with separate polish/glitters.
