#ManiMonday: Revlon Whimsical


I had to check through my postings, I feel like i have posted this manicure before.  Hmm...maybe just on instagram?


This manicure is 2 coats of Sinful Colors 'Cinderella' and 3 coats of Revlon 'Whimsical.' Whimsical is a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's 'Glitter in the Air,' with a much better price tag of $4.99 verses $18 for GITA. 


After looking through the pictures on my phone, I found these pictures from the first time I used this polish:


This time I used Zoya 'Kendal', with 'Cinderella' on my ring fingers.  It's hard to see from the pictures, but they are slightly different.  I think the next time I will use Kendal again as it took 2-3 coats of Cinderella before Whimsical to cover up my nails.


Don't you just love drug store dupes for the designer polishes?

  1. I have this color too and love it. The only part that stinks is you have to have a nice shade to wear under it and I only had dark blues and not a light one. It's a nice, subtle take on the glitter polish trend though!

  2. I LOOOOVE drugstore dupes! I have searched for one for Butter London's British Racing Green to no avail. But usually I am thrilled with Revlon/etc dupes. I used my first Sinful Colors one this week and was not thrilled though :( I think mostly it was the brush, but it was thick and uneven and I had tons of bubbles. PLUS- I applied it at 4pm, two coats as thin as I could get... went to bed at around midnight and I woke up like with sheet imprints on them. WHAT? Did you have any issues with yours?

  7. Geez... I pay $15 for Revlon polishes here in Australia. Such a rip-off. But I LOVE that polish. Will end up buying it if I see it. There's a pinkish/pale lavender one which is the same with the glitter in it which is quite lovely too.
