Nail Polish Spotlight: Revlon Whimsical

Hey guys!  I was looking through my pictures and found a bunch of photos of polishes that haven't made it onto the blog yet!  I hope to get all caught up soon, hopefully in the next few weeks!  : )

First, I want to let everyone know that the winner of my "Birthday Giveaway" was announced and she did contact me!  Congrats again Ashley A.!!!  I will send your prize out tomorrow or Monday! : )

Okay now onto this post!  Today the nail polish spotlight in going to shine over Revlon's Whimsical!

 I applied 4 coats of Whimsical over 1 coat of Sally Hansen's "White Out".

Revlon Whimsical is a sheer blue-grey polish with various sized blue, pink, and iridescent glitter.  When I first saw this polish in stores I wasn't really a big fan.  I could instantly tell that it was sheer and it wasn't worth $4 to me.  Later, once I got into nail polish community on Facebook, I find out that this polish was an exact dupe of Deborah Lippmann's "Glitter in the Air" and that it looked amazing over blue/teal polish.

I bought Whimsical while Revlon was on sale at my local grocery store and was still on the fence about it, but hey I only paid $2 for it so I wasn't complaining!  I tried wearing it by itself, which was an EPIC fail.  Then I decided to apply it over a white polish, which is what you see above.  The glitter did spread nicely, but I had an issue with the color being a little uneven.  Now I'm going to be honest, I don't like this polish!  I wore this mani for 3-4 days and it never grew on me.  I don't know if it's that fact that I had to apply a bazillion coats or if I just didn't like it over white.  Next time I think I'm going to wear it over a blue, pink, or purple polish and see if I like it better.

Here's a close up shot!  (Excuse my poor clean-up job.)
