Revlon Popular and Sparkle Aplenty

6 Comments

These are some swatches of Revlon’s glitter polishes. Popular is a pale pink creamy glitter. It contains tiny silver glitter pieces and larger hexagon shaped pieces. I applied this with no undercoat, (no undies) and it only took two coats to pull off this manicure. I wore it for days, it didn’t chip. It also dried very quickly. I love the quality of Revlon’s products! This manicure was very work appropriate. I normally don’t like pale colours but I did enjoy wearing this polish and I will wear it again. I think this polish is classy and elegant.

This is Revlon’s Sparkle Aplenty. I should love it but I don’t. For this manicure I used  Sally Hansen’s Black Out as a base coat. It took two coats and then I just dabbed on the glitter pieces around the nail. Just like Popular, Sparkle Aplenty has silver glitter and silver hexagons throughout. I didn’t like it because the polish is a weak black, without a base coat it would look terrible. Also, I didn’t like that the polish dulled the look of the glitter. Maybe I would wear this polish for a night out, maybe. But I don’t think it looks good for day to day ordinary, no occasion wear. Know what I mean?

With Popular I found myself staring at my nails and admiring them. With Sparkle Aplenty I just wanted to grab the nail polish remover and take it off. It’s funny how two pretty similar polishes from the same range bring out such different reactions in me. If you have these polishes let me know how you found them.

  1. Did you leave this polish on long? I have found that any polish with bigger pieces of glitter tends to chip easier than smaller glitter/sparkles. Either way, I love it!

  2. Oooh, I love the look of Popular! Two coats, thats awesome. Sparkle Aplenty… just doesn’t work. I see what you mean. It still looks nice on you, but its not a good combo somehow. Nice photos!
