Because Revlon Girly is somewhat sheer and we all know how troublesome removing multiple layers of glitter can be, I chose to wear a base coat of Essie Splash of Grenadine. This was released during the Spring of 2010 as part of the Resort collection. I remember being on the hunt for this shade. Essie Splash of Grenadine is a fuchsia pink crelly with a purple undertone. Looking through both my purple and pink collections, I really don't have any shade similar. Pictured here I'm wearing 2 coats, but if I were going to wear this alone, I would probably add a third coat. This is a great shade for Spring & Summer.
So with the Essie Splash of Grenadine base coat, I layered two coat of Revlon Girly. Most nail polish addicts have at one point in time done a "sandwich manicure"- requiring at least 2 separate polishes. Revlon Girly is pretty much a "sandwich manicure" in a bottle. The different glitters are suspended at different levels in the polish. Application is easy. The glitter spread with no trouble. I didn't need to "place" them as with most glitters. There's something about this polish that just reminds me of a cupcake with sprinkles.
The next glitter I'd like to share with you is Revlon Radiant. However, being that Radiant is in a transparent base to achieve fully opaque manicure would require many coats, if at all possible. So as a base color, I chose one of my all-time favorites, Orly Blue Collar. I have worn this shades many times and am shocked when looking back that I have blogged about it. I love Orly polishes and especially their cream polishes. This mid-tone sky blue cream applies like a dream and is still readily available.
To Orly Blue Collar I layered Revlon Radiant. As I mentioned, Radiant is in a transparent base, so it requires a undercoat. In that base is blue micro glitter along with larger hexagonal green and silver glitters. I love glitters like Radiant. You and achieve many different looks all depending on the base you select. Much like Girly, the application was easy and I didn't have to struggle with the placement of the glitters. It should come as no surprise that I would love this blue glitter.
For whatever reason, I don't have many Revlon polishes in my collection. Revlon is a brand that has been around for decades. I need to give it some more love. What are some of your favorite Revlon polishes?
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
