Revlon Grape and Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink

So glad that Blogger isn't acting up any more than usual and I can finally get this post out!

I have been able to wear this mani for a few days since I've taken the pictures and I have fallen in love with it a bit more each day. I admit it. I really like purple. And this color has not let me down. I picked up Revlon's Grape last week when Walgreen's was running a sale on Revlon. They were also having a sale on Sally Hansen, so I picked up a couple of Sally Hansen Xtreme wear polishes. One of them was Rockstar Pink. I sat staring at my new pretties and had an A-HA! moment. I'll put them together!

Grape turned out to be quite lovely on the nail. I would call it more of an eggplant or aubergine color. It has small red and blue shimmer to it too. They really blend into the polish, but they give the color so much depth. I think that is part of the reason I have come to love this polish.

Rockstar Pink is an amazing glitter bomb. It has fuchsia, red and blue glitter, and gold microglitter. At least that's what it looks like to my eyes. There is so much going on in this glitter, it's a little hard to tell.

 I showed this picture a bit fuzzy so you could see all the wonderful glittery goodness in this polish.

Application on both polishes was very good. The polish flowed very well and covered beautifully. I used three coats of Grape. I could have probably just used two. However, it is almost impossible for me to not put three coats on. I used one coat of Rockstar Pink on my ring finger for an accent. It covered really well. The glitter is dense enough in this polish you could probably get full coverage in two or three coats all by itself. I was a bit worried that the glitter would be a bit rough, but it only took one coat of Seche Vite to smooth it out. I did put a second coat of SV on, but that was more out of habit than necessity. 

What do you think of this combination? Do you like glitter polishes? What is your favorite one?

  1. Rock Star Pink is one of my favorite glitters EVER. I love it so so much :) I've never work it over another polish, but it looks really good over grape!
