Today’s polish is a Revlon polish. I have to admit, I totally discriminate against Revlon polishes. There is something about the bottle shape that bothers me! I know that is a weird thing to complain about, and really trivial in the world of polish, but I don’t like it. I know the shape of the bottle hasn’t really changed since Revlon first started making polishes, so there is a sense of history and nostalgia. But I hate the look of them on my racks! So I always skip the Revlon display at the drugstore, and that includes the Revlon Color Stay line. So when I opened the box that an absolutely amazing and generous subscriber, Hollie, sent me and saw some Revlon polishes I was a little taken back. And then I tried this one on! And I have to scold myself, never judge a polish by its bottle! Because I am seriously in love.
Revlon”Plum Night” is a dark purple jelly! Yes, that’s right, I’m labeling this a jelly. It has a slight grey tone to it because its not a super saturated purple, nor does it really lean red or blue. Its just a great purple tone that is really chic and sophisticated. And although its really dark, to me it looks purple in every light. Some dark shades can just look like black on your nails, but this looks purple to me.
The formula is really nice. It was a little on the thin side, but not so runny that it was a problem. The dry time was a little bit longer than normal. My favorite part of this polish is just how glossy it is. This is without a top coat! Yep, its this glossy and shiny without a top coat. Although I would say this polish is a jelly finish, it isn’t that sheer. This is 2 coats and its completely opaque, but the reason I’m calling it a jelly is because it doesn’t have a single tinge of of white creme base. It is an amazing shade and for the price!
What do you guys think? Do you like Revlon polishes? Which Revlon polishes do you have and which ones would you suggest for someone who’s coming over to the Revlon side?
