Revlon Brilliant Strength swatches

Just a few photos from the archives I forgot I had 🙂


220 Provoke, 030 Intrigue, 120 Tantalize, 110 Hypnotize, 090 Captivate

At the moment, I think that Revlon’s Brilliant Strength line, is probably my favorite quality of “drug store” brand polishes.  In fact, compared to some of my other polishes that are twice the price, the colors, quality and formula of this line is pretty darn good if not better.

The polish goes on opaque in just one coat (making it great as a stamping polish) – two coats just makes the color a little more fantastic 🙂

I wish they had a few other styles of polish (glitters, flakes, shimmers) but what they do have in regular colors is really nice.  In fact, Tantalize (which actually is one of the few shimmery polishes in the line) is my absolute fav – and I bought a second to have, just in case it gets discontinued 🙂

Captivate, Hypnotize,  Tantalize, Intrigue, Provoke.

One Manicure – 3 looks!


With only my sleeping baby daughter keeping me company today, I had lots of time to play with my polishes.  I always appreciate a little “me” time, but after today, I am ready for my hubby and son to be back from their boys time in Montreal.  My 8 month old isn’t much of a conversationalist 🙂
Anyways, that was just a little bit of an explanation why I’ve done 3 blog posts (so far!) today.  I will clean the house tomorrow 😉


This manicure isn’t as spectacular as I’m making it sound.  I just kept adding layers of something to make my nails more interesting… until there was nothing else I could add!  lol

Here ya go!


First layer: An amazing polish by Revlon called Hypnotize in the Brilliant Strength collection.  It applies like silk, and could probably be just as beautiful with one coat, as it is with two.  I also picked up a silver/grey from the same collection, so I might try that next.

Layer 2:  Nicole by OPI Limited Edition Kardashian Kolor Holiday lacquer “A Gold Winter’s Night”

And the last layer: Maybelline New York Color Show Shredded “Carbon Frost”
