Pink Wednesday ~ Revlon Starry Pink

Hey dolls, today I'm wearing one of the new glitters that is a part of my giveaway. Revlon Starry Pink is a milky, light pink glitter that is full of small silver glitter and larger hexagonal glitter. The formula was good for a glitter, not too thick or thin. I really like the Revlon brush; the polish went exactly where I wanted it to and barely any clean up was needed. I'm wearing 2 coats in the pictures below, but you may want a third if you require full opacity.
The pictures show more VNL than is actually present to the eye in real life. This is one of the glitters from the set that I was really excited about after seeing on other blogs, but its just a little meh on me. Maybe I'll give it another try layered over a different color. The glitter does dry relatively rough, so a good top coat is needed. I used Nubar Diamont Seal & Shine Top Coat for the first time and I am very pleased. Its relatively thick and my mani was completely dry to the touch in less than five minutes. There weren't any shrinkage issues, but I'll continue using it for the next few weeks to see if its a keeper. The only downfall of Nubar Diamont so far is that I can't get it on the ground. I'll keep you all posted on this speed dry top coat.

Happy hump day!!!

So pretty!

Yeah, one of the downside of Nubar is that you can't get it on the ground. And their shipping is expensive. I got mine off a seller I trust on ebay.

There are some nubar's available on amazon, maybe you could try that as well.

I may be able to swap this one with you. I'm not really a fan.

I ordered from Amazon, which I don't mind doing. If its a keeper, I may order multiples at a time.

I so want this polish....I have looked high and low in the towns surrounding mine. No one has it - most don't get the 'new' collections of Revlon. There is a CVS that gets the display of the new Milani and the new Essies. That's pretty much it for my burgs in the stix where I live. I think this is such a pretty color and I am usually not a fan, nor do I purchase Revlon. Reading blogs has opened me up to SH X-reme wear and their Salon Complete line with fab reviews from me for drugstore polish. With regard to your Diamont topper - I bought 2 bottles and had them sent with some Nubar color shades. Mine seem really watery and anything but thick. SV is what I think of as thick for a topper. My OPI topper is thicker than my Diamont. But right about the time I got my Diamont, another blogger talked about some bad batches out there and Nubar had corrected the problem for her - she had ordered direct from Nubar. I am going to try again and get another Diamont - I hear so many good things about it. I think I just got stuck with 2 bottles of that off ball bad batch. Wish we had a salon around here that used Nubar. i would go in and try their Diamont to see what it's SUPPOSED to be like compared to mine.

Forgot to say, your photos of this beauty are wonderful. It shows it in all it's softness. Looks like angel wings but has opacity to it vs. a sheer

Awww....thanks!

I recall the posts about the bad batch of Diamont. Its definitely thick...right along the lines of SV. I don't have any salons near me that sell it either. Amazon is my friend when it comes to polishes I can't get on the ground.
