Revlon Whimsical Swatches

Last week I was very lucky to snag the two last bottles of Revlon Whimsical from my local Wegman's.  I decided I was going to keep one for myself and give the other one away when I reach 100 followers on Facebook. You can check out that post here!  This weekend I couldn't help but experiment with my bottle of the amazing polish.

I really wanted to do some experimentation with the opacity of the color.  Above I showed the difference between one to three coats of the polish.  I also show the polish over Revlon Blue Lagoon to see if it had better opacity that way.  While the polish started to get pretty opaque by the third coat I think it looked the best over Blue Lagoon, and I ended up using that combination for my latest manicure.

The picture above is without a camera flash.

This picture was taken with a camera flash.  For this manicure I used one coat of Revlon Blue Lagoon with three coats of Revlon Whimsical on top.  I really love how using multiple coats of Whimsical causes the glitters that are on the earlier coats look like they are suspended in a cloud.  It's so airy and beautiful.  For those of you who don't know Whimsical is a dupe for the Deborah Lippmann polish Glitter in the Air.  I love this polish and I am so glad that I was able to find it!

What do you think of this polish? Would you like a chance to win a bottle for yourself? Check out at like the Polished Paradise Facebook Page!  When we reach 100 fans a bottle of Revlon Whimsical and some other goodies will be given away!

  1. Whimsical is lovely, and it's so nice to have a cheaper dupe for Glitter in the Air!. :-)
