Revlon Scandalous 761 Swatches

Tried and true Revlon.  A drugstore staple for… forever.   I haven’t purchased any Revlon polishes in quite some time – but just recently, a few of them have caught my eye.   In fact, there are 3 that I have purchased, which are in Revlon’s Expressionists Collection.   Scandalous, Popular and Whimsical.

(just a note: these are not new, apparently – I am just not very observant.  They have been on the market since 2011)

This post is the first of 3 posts I will do with images / swatches of those mentioned.  They are really nice!  I can’t help but be shocked every time I say that 🙂  I mean, Revlon is great for the standard reds, pinks, etc. – but nothing really interesting (in my opinion) – these 3 are unique for Revlon.  That would be really great if they started adding more funky polishes – because the price certainly is right.
On with the show!!

Scandalous!  scanDAlous!!! I really like saying that…

As you can see, it is a dark base colour, with a purple mix of small glitter and larger hex glitter.

When applied, the first coat goes on with a decent amount of glitter, and the base colour is kind of a sheer black jelly

But, once a 3rd coat is applied with a nice thick top coat – it looks exactly like the colour in the bottle.

 

That’s about it for SCANDALOUS.  I will add the other two as soon as I have a chance.  They are super nice!  Creamy light blue with glitter, and creamy soft pink with glitter.  Love, love, love!

 

Cheers all !

Not my original idea, nor my original name for it.  Basically, I’m just a complete copycat 🙂   I wish I could link this idea back to someone specific, but so many people have done a version of this, and done it great – that I wouldn’t know who to link back to.

Here is my version:

As you can see, a little more practice would make this manicure really make this a great one – but, I am please.

Here is how I did it:

1. Base colour light blue 14  from Born Pretty

2. used piece of makeup sponge and  dabbed a bit of the revlon polish Gold Coin

3. used piece of makeup sponge to dab dark blue Maybelline Color Show Blue Freeze

4. One stripe down the middle of revlon glitter polish Stunning

5. Before glitter polish dried, I sprinkled in iridescent glitter powder (no idea where I got it)

6. Topped off with Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat

And just for fun, I did this on my thumb 🙂

Have a fun day!!
