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.
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...ReplyDelete
I was thinking of trying something similar myself. Beat me to it :) It looks fantastic!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Anyway, very cute layering!
