Revlon: Hazy, Electric & Black With Envy
Today I’ve got a few more Revlon colors to show you all. I saw one of my co-workers wearing Hazy and I pretty much had to have it, the other two polishes just jumped into my cart so what was I supposed to do?
For all three I used Essie Fill The Gap as my base coat.
Hazy is a smokey grey creme and the one that I was lemming* after I saw my friend Amanda wearing it. This one was opaque after 2 coats. It was a little streaky but it leveled out after applying my top coat (Seche Vite in this case).
Electric is a yellow with a fine shimmer that is known to be a very close dupe to Chanel’s Mimosa. Rachel Marie’s Nails has a very good comparison on her blog (seen here), and there’s another great comparison at TheLooksForLess.com. It is a little streaky, as most yellow hued polish tends to be, so it took 3 coats for me to level this one out. I also tried using Prolana Quick & Slick as my top coat and it made my the polish on my index finger ripple! I think I’ll be sticking to Seche Vite from now on when I swatch Revlons. :-/
This one was a surprise win for me! I picked it up because I’d heard rumors of Black With Envy being a dupe for Black Pearl by Chanel. Once purchased I found out this rumor was extremely incorrect, but I still really enjoyed the charcoal black color filled with teal and a subtle pink shimmer. I used 3 coats for this one and Seche Vite as my top coat.
I’m actually quite pleased with all three of these. I am always thrilled when I find another grey polish to add to my stash, and the fact that Electric is such a close match to Mimosa has cured me of that lemming* as well. Black With Envy is the first charcoal black that I have in my stash so it’s definitely a keeper.
Revlon polishes usually retail for anywhere between $4.49 – $5.99/each. You can purchase them at any local drugstore or major retailer (Walgreens, CVS, Target, Wal-Mart, etc.) nationwide.
