Revlon Royal & OPI Last Friday Night

I'm late to the OPI Katy Perry collection, I know. When it first came out, I was unimpressed. I admit it. I thought the glitters were too transparent to be interesting, and none of the other colors struck me. I'm still not into the crackle trend at all, but I've changed my mind about the others. I saw someone layer Last Friday Night over another polish, and was instantly converted.

So, here's my first go at playing around with layering Last Friday Night. I chose Revlon's Royal because of the squishy jelly goodness.

Royal made a big splash in the nail polish world, so I know we've all seen this countless times before. Properly named, it's a ridiculously pretty royal blue jelly. I adore this polish! I'm a sucker for jellies, but make them this gorgeous, and I'm hooked. Royal applies smoothly, and is good to go in two coats for me. If you wanted to eliminate visible nail line, you'd have to do three. The visible nail line is exaggerated on camera, but still visible in real life.

Next I applied two coats of Last Friday Night, and marveled in the gorgeousness! I found Last Friday Night to be really easy to work with. I've had a ton of compliments on this manicure. A lot of people have said it reminds them of the ocean, and I must agree. There's not much to say about this that hasn't been said already about this polish. But whose reading the text when such a pretty manicure is pictured?!


  1. This is so gorgeous, it looks great on you.
    I definitely think this is best as a layering polish, on its own it didn't wow me but over something else it is just fab.

  2. I really want to get Royal but I haven't been able to find it yet.
