Hello hello!! My notd is the lovely blue jelly that is Revlon Royal. I got this right around the time Rescue Beauty Lounge's IKB:2012 sold out for good, and while nothing can compete with the energy behind that kind of collaboration, let's face it, a pretty color is a pretty color. Lots of gals said Royal is the superior shade and formula, so I decided to go for it.
The color is gorgeous. And the formula's not bad, either. The brush is really big and moppy, which concerned me until I actually applied the polish. Everything stayed put nicely, and while with two coats, my nail line is visible in the photos, it is not in real life. This one does stain and is messy to clean up. I should know, it took me four tries to get these photos right....
I'm not wearing topcoat in these photos. Insanity is what, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? I'd been using my standard Out the Door topcoat and every photo showed all these terrible brushstrokes. I wanted to show you all a closeup, but apparently I deleted everything but the last batch in a fit of despair, lol. That's never happened before, which leads me to believe that maybe this polish is best worn minus topcoat. Anyone else have an experience with this?
Bottom line, Royal is a rich and striking color and I totally see what all the hype was about.
Tomorrow is US Thanksgiving and I'll be hanging out at home making tasty food and waiting for C to walk through the door so our festivities can commence, lol. You'll find me at Ulta at midnight. ;) You all have a safe and happy day. Thanks for reading. <3
