Purple is a pretty color; I get it. I know that tons of people out there love love love purple, but I really just don't like it. Purple-lovers, please don't shoot me.
I always trick myself into thinking I like purple. Whether it's clothes, shoes, jewelry, or (of course) nail polish, I convince myself to give purple a chance time and time again, only to find that, again, it isn't for me. I was reminded of this one again with LA Girl Groupie. (Wow that was a lot of agains...) Pretty as it may be, I got tired of it after...well the first day. After two more, I had to change my polish, which is basically the point of this rant. What I'm trying to get to is what was on my nails a few days ago, Revlon Copper Penny:
Oh beautiful reflective *metallic-ness*!! In the sun, this polish is seriously blinding. If I stare at it for too long, I actually get an afterimage (that little greenish or reddish spot you see after staring at the sun).
Revlon Copper Penny is a metallic copper consisting of silver and copper *metallic particles* (don't know what I should call them...shimmer? glitter??). Copper Penny is one of the polishes from Revlon's Heavenly Metal Collection. Like I mentioned above, this polish is super super metallic and reflective and, therefore, awesome!! Opaque in two coats. Copper Penny went on pretty smooth, but I did get some bubbling. Again, I'm torn on Revlon polishes. They're pretty long-lasting overall, but the slow dry time and either too-thick or too-thin formula that I often encounter with Revlon polishes is disappointing.
Little thing to smile for today: the combination of summer sun and blindingly metallic nails!! :D
