Revlon - Girly

I picked up Revlon Girly the other day when I was shopping at Walmart as a total impulse purchase. I had heard some good things about it and at first glance I was into it. For all intents and purposes, it's a lovely fun, glittery polish. But I kinda hate it. I think the color of pink just isn't doing it for me. It's almost a lavender type of pink. I dig all the glitter though, way to step out of the box Revlon! This is two coats.

You can buy Revlon nail polish at most drugstores and superstores like Walmart and K-Mart for around $5. Have you picked up Girly? What do you think of it?

  1. Picked it up but set it back down since the line at Walgreens was so long. I need to get it later. I hope they're permanent. I have no idea how it would look against my skin tone.

  2. I know what you mean, the pink is almost sickly :s can't decide whether I love it or hate it! But I agree with you, the glitterfest is awesome :D xx

  3. I actually like it a lot, I mean, maybe that pink isn't the best but still...Maybe it'd look better layered over white or something? Anyway, I'm gonna hunt for it. ;)

  4. I bought this too! I love it, but I too don't like the way it looks on me. Oh well, they are headed in the right direction and this one isn't a direct rip-off of another polish (that I can think of at least).

    1. i think it's the big brand way of trying to get more adventurous since the influx of indie brands. *shrug* it's a start haha!

  6. Agreed it is a very nails inc sprinkles look, but I like that they added their own touch to it with the multi-shaped hexes. I like it, definitely girly. Also like that the pink is pretty neutral so it'll flatter multiple skin tones. The only thing I don't like about it is that the hex glitter in the Revlons seems to curl a bit and it bugs my OCD tendencies.

  7. I picked it up, and really enjoy it! I wore it alone, but I think next time, maybe I'll layer it over a more vibrant pink to see what happens. :)

  8. Revlon's been ahead of the curve, insofar as mainstream makers go. They've put out a number of interesting multi-dimensional glitters over the past couple of years. This is a lovely one, though I'm not much into pink. Looks very pretty on you, Kellie!

  9. It's pretty! Too bad you don't like it. But I feel ya - I'm pretty sure it would be too much on my own nails. :)

  10. I picked it up and went, "I know I'm supposed to like this, but I hate it." So it stayed at the store, and I'm glad. I'd never use it.

  11. I used this over Zoya Malia (purple) for a different look...I liked it! The pink on pink ended up being a little much for work purposes, so the purple mellowed it a little bit. Love this on you! I had trouble getting tons of glitter discs on the nail. Nice job!

  12. I think I'd like it if the base was more sheer. I'd be tempted to mix on some clear.

  14. I can see what you mean with the pinktone, though it does look good in pictures. I love how the big companies are starting to do more and more glitter now!

  15. Man I want to love this polish because I was lusting all over it when Manicure Addict first posted her swatches but the base colour is so... gross with my skintone! I'll have to try to layer it over other colours I think.
