revlon swatches

Hi guys, second post today to help move along my swatch project.
During my swatch marathon last week, I swatched my remaining 3 Revlon polishes.
(See the first one I swatched, and loved, here.)

First up is Peach Smoothie.

I bought this polish before the explosion of scented Revlons. It was like 7 or 8 months ago, on clearance for $1.99 at dominion.
I bought it because I didn't have any nudes, but I hadn't tried it until now, and I don't really like it. 3 coats.

I don't think it looks great on my skin tone. It is too pigmented and washes my skin out.
Here is a bottle comparison between this and the nude I own that I think suits my skin tone, Secret.

Peach Smoothie is much more peach. Hah.

It has very pretty shimmer though!
I like this polish but I don't think I'll wear it, it just doesn't seem to suit me.

Next up is Violet!

This one was a bit difficult to capture - the shimmer just wanted to look blue.

The above photo is more color accurate. Sorry about the non-wrapped tips! I never do it but usually that isn't visible.
This was 2 easy, fast drying coats. I'm actually wearing this today in my full mani and didn't even need to use SV.

Party Of Five Glitters was nearby so I added a coat of that for fun. It looks so good against the purple!

Next up is the amazing Perplex.

I'm sure you've all seen this before. This is the last polish I have to show you from the lovely Leslie.
Perplex is probably the most popular Revlon polish around. It is a dark gray with pinky-purple shimmer, and it's a dupe for Chanel's Paradoxal, which makes it so popular.

The first photo shows the gray better, while the second photo shows the true color of the shimmer.
This is almost perfect in one coat! But you probably need two to make it totally even.

The shimmer is just lovely. Looooove this polish.
Thanks again, Leslie :)

3 more polishes down, tonnes to go...
