Revlon Whimsical Goes Matte!

Thanks again to Krissy for helping me find this beauty!!!!

As you all may already know, Whimsical is quit sheer, so I chose to layer it over top of Hard Candy Sky, and I think they are the perfect couple :) I used 2 coats of each :)






















I then added a coat of Essie Matte About You, and LOVE the effect. It also got 2 thumbs up from Jack!!

  5. So beautiful!! I would have missed this post if I hadn't saw the twitter update. I thought I was already following you on gfc! No matter, following now! :D I think Whimsical looks even better with matte! I wish we have more awesome Revlons here too. :(

  9. Your nails always look great, I love all the different thing you do with them. Every time I paint my nails they chip within a couple hours and no later then the next day. Is there something I can do to prevent this?

    1. Do you wrap your tips with both your polish and top coat?

    2. I also had the 1 day chipping issue until I started investing in and trying out various base coats (better quality base coats I should say!). I have the best wear so far with Zoya (Anchor and Get Even work very well for me). Orly Bonder works pretty well, CND Sticky is ok, but not great. I just bought a bottle of Poshe' yesterday that I'm going to try next.

  20. This looks like a dupe for Deborah Lippman's Up In The Air... last time I did my nails with it, it looked very similar!

    1. You are correct, it is a dupe, and a much cheaper one, lol.

  25. Why you always write 'quit' instead of 'quite'?

  26. Never would have thought to try GITA or Whimsical matte I have to say...but I like it for a change up. GITA is a huge fav of mine and I wear it a ton. I have a back up bottle of it since I know how DL likes to just stop making shades and move on quite fast often times. I have Whimsical - it's close if not dupe - just seems I have more trouble getting the glitter onto the brush then onto the nail from the brush with Whimsical - but toothpicks or tweezers for both can come in handy.

  27. i HAD to get Matte About you, I am an obsessive matte-er. My favorite is putting it over glitters or holos, it shows the colors better!
