FINALLY!- 'Whimsical'

Hey guys!
Super stoked tonight because I finally laid my hands on Revlon's 'Whimsical'. 
Unfortunately, by this point everyone has seen it & knows what it's about,
but it's lovely enough to see again :)



'Whimsical' is a light blue base with large blue & pink hexagonal glitter, and it also some blue micro glitter throughout... annnnnd it's basically a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's 'Glitter in the Air'.


'Whimsical' is SUPER sheer and best used as a top coat. However, I wanted to get the full effect first of the polish alone, so the above photos are with 5 (yes, FIVE) coats- which is at least what you need to be even near opacity.
Next I tried this over NOPI's 'All About the Glam' (which is a shimmery white, because I didn't want to take away from the natural color of 'Whimsical') but the effect was about the same & it came off after 1o seconds so I didn't take pictures of that.

Likely due to the fact that it takes so long to build up, even after applied over a base polish AND with a solid coat of SV, this polish was just too caked on and it rubbed off/wrinkled in minutes, which was pretty disappointing. I guess the only way this can really be used is if you only use a couple coats :/

I've been so excited about this polish, but it didn't quite meet up to my expectations. I do love it, though, and it's totally unique (aside from the whole dupe thing :X) so I'm still glad I bought it :)

  2. Ahaha aside from the whole dupe thing. =P I haven't tried my Whimsical yet, but it looks so pretty on you. Sorry it was a bummer. I hate when polishes do that.
