Revlon 3-Pack: Sparkle & Top 10 Award

The Revlon 3 Pack
"Sparkle" no topcoat
Index: 1 coat - Middle: 2 coats
Ring: 3 coats - Pinky: 4 coats
Ou, pretty holo hexagon glitters.
Obviously, this polish is vastly different from Waterfall. It has a clear base with silver and holo mini circle glitter and holo hexagon glitter. Unfortunately the hex glitters are sparse. Also, once you apply 2 coats it basically looks the same even if you add a third, or even fourth coat. This is definitely a layering polish for me, I really dislike having my natural nail show through even in the slightest so I cringed when I realized that I had to post this ... oh well, I'll take one for the team. Haha. Let's see how she scored: 83%

Application: 10 - It was a breeze!
Colour: 8 - Glitters are always pretty for layering.
Finish: 7 - Not enough holo glitters.
= 25/30

Also, as you read in the title, I received the Top 10 Award today from the lovely lady at Varnish Me Up - thank you so much! Two awards in one day ... it makes my head spin! :)

My choices for top 10 blogs stemmed from the fact that I think they too deserve more lovin's. (Like the Liebster Award.) Colores de Carol is the exception, she has 900+ lovelies but I thought she deserves some love for posting Zoya's Dovima which might be my favourite polish ever ... and I don't even own it!

Anyway, that's all for me, beauties. Two posts in one day - I'm wiped! :)

PS: Look below to see what I did with Waterfall from earlier today! (I posted my right hand because the left hand smeared, ugh.)
Sinful Colors in "Snow Me White" for the spots.
Nail Star Two-Way Nail Art Pen in Navy to outline.
Thanks for reading!


  1. Oh Thank you very much! for the award and for your words.

  2. I saw that three pack in Lawtons today, didn't pick it up because I've got dupe-ish colors for the blue and the green, but I'll definitely be looking for sparkle!

  3. In almost bought that pack the other day at Walgreens. I may have to take another look at it.

  4. Yay thank you for nominating me ! :)
    It's so kind of you to think about me :)
    Xx. S

  5. Thank you for the award :) I appreciate it very much!

    I don't think this 3 pack is one I'll be looking for. The colors are nice but nothing that I feel I need. I do love your leopard accent nail though!
