When it comes to cosmetics, I could never pretend to be anywhere near as good or knowledgable as the beauty blogging heavyweights like Lily or Zoe, but after finally giving in to this new offering from Revlon I couldn't not blog about it.
The only glitter varnishes I've used before have been bog standard colours, designed more as sparkly top coats than shades in their own right, and thus taking about three coats to start looking positively blingin'.
With this beauty though, the varnish is a translucent black and is speckled with subtle purple glitter and larger sequin-like shards, meaning you not only get a great shimmer, but also a lack of any faffing around with a coloured base coat.
I used two coats, and apart from being near impossible to remove [eventually I used Gem's tip which was a godsend] am really pleased I spent money on this - £6 is way more than I'd usually part with for a nail varnish, but this one was definitely worth it and will see me through the upcoming festivities!
Bravo Revlon, you're doing it right.
