Revlon Sparkle Aplenty

(Edited to remove ad now that the campaign is over.)

As I teased this one on my Google+ and Facebook pages last week, here's Revlon Sparkle Aplenty, from the single-shade Runway Report display that's in stores now. It's a black jelly base that has black and silver hex glitter and black and silver tiny glitter.



The black glitter gets rather lost in the mix on the nail. I used three thin coats plus one layer of topcoat; next time I'll either use a thicker topcoat or an additional layer, as it still looked a bit bumpy to me.









There's a comparison of this with OPI Metallic 4 Life on Nouveau Cheap; they're not dupes but it is a similar effect. I guess it shouldn't surprise me that Revlon is doing stuff like this since they did bring us Street Wear and other good things way back in the day, but I'm still pleased to see it.


P.S. Just wanted to let those of you with AdBlock turned on that the box at the top is for a contest to win one of five $100 gift cards from Walgreens. That's a lot of polish if you win.

  3. I have Metallic 4 Life but I've never used it. I've been afraid that it would be a nightmare to apply. But this Revlon looks really good. I could see wearing that for Halloween or something.

  13. This one doesn't "sing to my heart" :-/ Maybe just one coat on a black base will make it look lighter?
