Layering Revlon Whimsical and Starry Pink Together!

Unlike a lot of the harder-to-find polishes out there at the moment, I came across Revlon Whimsical quite a while ago, along with Starry Pink.  There's been something of a flood of posts about Whimsical lately and I felt I would be doing you a disservice by just doing another swatch.  You've seen it over a bunch of colours and sure it's pretty but I felt I had to do something different.  Seeing the two bottles sitting next to each other made me wonder: what happens if you combine Whimsical and Starry Pink together in a delicious (looking) sandwich??

The pictures below are actually my second attempt at this look.  The first time I went without a white base coat and it turned out just a little too sheer for my liking.  Second time, coat of Joe Fresh White made all the difference.  Next, I added a coat of Starry Pink.  This is such a pretty polish, a light, baby pink packed with silver glitter made milky by the pink.  Next, Whimsical.  I know it's a rip-off of the Deborah Lippmann but there's not a lot I can do about it cos it's sooo nice.  A very sheer dusky blue with copper and blue glitter, I don't have any other glitters like it.  Finally, a last coat of Starry Pink to top off the sandwich.  The final result is a mani that could be pink, could be a bit blue but all soft and girly.  








The Verdict:  there's a reason why there's been so much hype around Revlon Whimsical / Glitter in the Air as it's a really pretty polish that doesn't have a dupe outside of the pair.  Combined with Revlon Starry Pink, it makes a soft blue/pink combination that I really like.

  1. I have Whimsical, but the more I see Starry Pink the more I regret not getting it when it came out. Maybe I'll be able to find it somewhere...

  3. Haha you know I read "Starry Pink" and thought it looked super similar. I guess it's been renamed "Popular." I must have all the newer ones Popular, Whimsical, Radiant, and Scandalous.

    Anyway, very cute layering!

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
