I Know You Know Collection From The Lady Varnishes Part Two and Preview of the Because You Listen Collection

This is part two of my review of The Lady Varnishes polishes, part one is here. These polishes, from left to right, are called: I Know You Know, To The Blueberry, You Know That’s Right, You Heard About Pluto?, Dazzle And Stretch, and Girl Needs A Doughnut.1

You Heard About Pluto?

11

This is a black jelly base with holographic glitter and silver shreds. It’s a very thick polish. It’s really easy to apply and  very dense. It crossed my mind while applying this polish that it would look great for a fancy night out/date night. It’s not smooth, I think it’s kinda edgy, it would really compliment a black sequined party dress. I didn’t try to smooth it out or put top coat on it, I was really enjoying how different it was. This one is quirky and it definitely exceeded my expectations.

Dazzle and Stretch

Dazzle  and Stretch is a glitter filled (hexes, bars, and shreds) topcoat that can also be worn on its own. It is only available with the purchase of the entire collection. It is really bright and clean. I loved how simple it was and especially loved the colour. Perfect to glam up any tired looking colours!

Girl Needs A Doughnut

Girl Needs a Doughnut is from the soon-to-be-released Because You Listen Collection. So this is a preview! Yay, I love having insights into new collections! This glittery polish has both fine and larger round pieces of glitter. It’s the round pieces of glitter that make this polish special for me. Just like the other polishes in from The Lady Varnishes this one is quick drying.

Revlon Popular and Sparkle Aplenty

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.
