HI GUYS!!! Long time no see, eh?! Instead of excuses, I come bearing pictures!! Today I have for you all a manicure I have been wanting to do for awhile, Pure Ice Heartbreaker over Revlon Royal. These two polishes are truly a match made in heaven.
Revlon Royal is a gorgeous deep royal blue jelly in Revlon's Top Dry line. The formula of this polish was thick but relatively easy to work with. If this polish was any thinner, it would have been flood city and as pigmented as this polish is, it would have been a nightmare to do cuticle clean up. I usually prefer my polishes a bit thinner but I was grateful that Royal was as thick as it was. After 2 coats of Royal, I did one coat of Pure Ice Heartbreaker on top, a gorgeous green shimmer. I believe Heartbreaker is still available but last time I saw, the formula had changed and it wasn't nearly as shimmery as it was before and had a milky base. I'm glad to still have a bottle of the original version.
The only disappointment with this manicure was the drying time. As Royal is supposed to be from the quick drying line, I expected a quick drying time. Sounds reasonable, yes? Well, even with taking short breaks between coats and my handy dandy Seche Vite topcoat, I am writing this post a few hours later and I am still able to dent the polish if I try. Not really a fan of that aspect of the polish. But, it looks really fantastic so I suppose I can look past its shortcomings. I mean, if I can wait hours for my Kleancolor Metallics to dry, I can forgive Revlon Royal for a bit of dentiness (NEW WORD ALERT!).
Pictured is two coats of Revlon Royal and one coat of Pure Ice Heartbreaker. As I've digressed from being a regular nail blogger, my nails are a bit misshappen, my cuticles a bit dry and my pictures kind of blurry. But hopefully you guys can look past all that and see how amazeballs this combo is!
Thanks for stopping by today friends! I probably still will not be posting regularly but I will be checking in every once in a while with a new manicure =) I miss you all and hope you all are doing well <3
