Straight Up Swatch: Revlon ‘Whimsical’

I still can’t make up my mind on this one. I’ve never really warmed to milky/pastel bases with glitters in them, but I do like the glitters themselves. The dusky pink and blue metallics look really pretty together – enough that I stop noticing that they’re in a wishy washy base, for a while at least.

This one does take at least three coats to get a decent and opaque coverage, but it’s is pretty once you get there – I just can’t make up my mind as to whether this one is for me or not.

Important Bits:

Coats: 3
Availability: I thought it was available here but I have been told not. Buggered if I know why though.

    Can you get this in this country now??? I’ve been wanting it for months but thought it was only available in the US!

    • Polly

      I was sure I’d bought it here but you know what…maybe I didn’t!

      • Patricia Grundy

        Well, at least that’s the no-buy still on ..

    I think it’s a lovely polish, especially for the price. The color looks great on you, btw!

    I COMPLETELY get your undecidedness with these milky polishes, I’m glad I’m not alone! I bought Whimsical’s purple sister Popular but have yet to try it based on mixed feelings. I have tried China Glaze Its a Trapeze! and Claire’s Candy Shop (a dupe for Deborah Lippman’s) which have a milky base and lots of colored glitters…the rainbow glitter helps I think but still not overly impressed.

    It looks lovely :). I have this little beauty in my untrieds. It’s not available here for some very strange reason. A work friend got it for me on a sales trip to the USA. I am going to try it over a grey base xx
