Revlon Whimsical

I'm slacking again. Ugh. I'm just so stressed with waiting on grad school news, and working on submitting some new pieces to a gallery. Nonetheless, I have Whimsical by Revlon to show you today.

Whimsical is the highly sought after dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air. I know people are selling this for more than it is worth because it's a bit harder to find, but, people, you can still find this on for $5.

It's a pretty sheer polish. This is three coats, and you can see the nail line. I liked that effect, as we all know by now, so I kept it. If you wanted something less sheer, I'd recommend layering it over a light blue. It applied smoothly.

I really love the juxtaposition of the milky, sheer blue and the glitter. It was one of those manicures that had me staring at my nails frequently.


  1. I've been searching for this one for months and I finally found it at ULTA last week. It was the last one- and it was only $3.99. I was about to pay the ebay price! It looks nice on you. I think I prefer using multiple coats of it rather than layering it over another color. I like the look of the glitter suspended in the jelly.

  2. I like it, but I'm not wowed. I honestly only really like glitters with dark colors personally.
