Swatch: Revlon - Whimsical

Hi ladies! So yesterday I showed you Sea Spray by China Glaze and said that this was amazing underwear for a certain polish, well this is the polish! I know Sinful Colors - Cinderella has been raved about being the perfect base for Whimsical, although I do own Cinderella, I wanted to be different. I received my Whimsical in a swap I did with Nicole from Let Me See Your Peacock since it's unavailable in the UK as far as I know, surprise surprise! Whimsical has been dubbed the Deborah Lippmann - Glitter In The Air dupe and as far as I can see, it's definitely worthy of it's title. Whimsical is a light blue and pink hex glitter with smaller blue glitter in a sheer, light blue jelly base. As common amongst glitters, it was hard to get an even amount of glitter on the nail and required some dipping and dabbing to get the glitter where I wanted it. The photos below are 2 coats of Whimsical over Sea Spray without a Top Coat.

Overall I can see why there is such hype around Whimsical, the polish is beautiful, of course it helps that Revlon is only a fraction the price of Deborah Lippmann polishes! What do you think about Whimsical?

  2. I FINALLY found Whimsical - and bought the last one yet. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet - still trying to figure out what to layer it over :)

  3. So pretty. I have to try this combo, I think I like it better than Cinderella. Cinderella is a beautiful combo as well.

  6. Gorgeous polish. And over that CG polish makes it true to its color. How crazy is that? I never would have thought to layer the two but now I may have to!
