GMU Friday: Revlon Popular

Today I'm feeling a but girly and have gone for Revlon Popular (aka Starry Pink).  This is a pale milky pink polish with medium and fine silver glitter.  I was so excited when I saw this in my local Priceline store because I had been mesmerised by it from the swatches I had seen on other blogs.

So when I tried it on my nails and was actually a little disappointed.  In the bottle it does look pale, but on my nails it was really pale, with very little pink to it.  I love pink polish, and to have a pink glitter polish that wasn't really all that pink upset me a bit.  So I put it away in my stash and forgot about it for a while.

Today I have decided to give it another go.  Although this time I am not using it on it's own.  I have actually put a layer of O.P.I Pink Friday underneath it.  Which is kind of appropriate considering this is Glitter Me Up Friday :-)

For this mani I used:
One coat of NailTek II base coat
One coat of O.P.I Pink Friday
Two coats of Revlon Popular
One coat of Seche Vite top coat

I think that I prefer Popular with coat of Pink Friday underneath.  It just boosts the pink factor of the manicure and gives it a bit of oomph.  Having the Pink Friday underneath also helps the silver glitter to stand out more and not get so lost in the milky-ness of Popular.   For me, Popular is just too pale to wear on it's own.
