Today I have swatched Revlon Wicked Star from this year's LE Halloween collection. To be honest, this was the Halloween collection I was most excited for this year! Crazy, right? Especially considering I only wanted two colors from the collection. The reason why I was so stoked about these Revlons is because they are absolutely gorgeous shimmer polishes. If you are new around these parts, shimmer is my FAVORITE POLISH FINISH EVAR. I don't know what it is, I just have a huge penchant for shimmers so these Revlons were right up my alley.
Revlon Wicked Star is a grassy green packed with awesome light green shimmer. This polish just absolutely glows. I am quite obsessed with it and I never want to take it off. I will of course, to show off some of my other polishes but if it wasn't for blogging, I'd probably keep this on for quite awhile. It's not exactly the most Halloween-y green but since it's in a Halloween collection, so I'll take it! Plus the name, Wicked Star? LOVE!
The formula, however, leaves a bit to be desired. A great shimmer polish will usually have a a thin and watery formula to help those layers of shimmer shine through but Wicked Star was a tint bit thick. I tested this out on a nail wheel first and realized that I would need to do really thin coats to prevent a streaky shimmer. Next time I use this, I'll probably add a few drops of thinner to ease in application. Honestly not that big a deal but I figured it was worth mentioning. For the casual polisher, this probably would have been an easy 1-coater but since I was photographing, I did two thin coats.
So here's 2 thin coats of Revlon Wicked Star. Enjoy!
