By now you’ve probably heard/seen/read that Revlon is re-releasing a bunch of polishes under new names. These include older polishes, as well as recent releases such as Facets of Fuchsia (Now Scandalous). I have those, and am not enough of a hoarder to buy them again under new names. HOWEVER, some of the other colors are amazing. Revlon is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands with some of the stuff they’ve put out this year.
Here we have Naughty, a rerelease of Perplex, which was a dupe/near dupe of Chanel’s Paradoxal. Whew! It’s a gorgeous greyish/taupey purple that has an amazing shimmer when they light hits it just so.
1 coat Orly Bonder
3 coats Revlon- Naughty
1 coat Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
The formula is a dream, and you can get away with 2 thick coats or use 3 thin coats for full opacity. There is zero dragging or streaking, and it dries quickly enough that 3 coats isn’t a massive inconvenience. How is Revlon SO. GOOD. at making dupes of these high-end brands?!? As a homeowner, who has a car payment/student loans/credit card payments AND a nail polish habit to fund, it’s nice to have access to cheaper dupes of coveted polishes. I consider Naughty a “classy” polish, one that is subtle, suitable for all occasions. I’m currently getting away with wearing copious amounts of glitter under the “but it’s festive!” rule, but it’s not something I can do all the time. This polish lets me feel sparkly while still maintaining a professional appearance. Plus it’s just really pretty. It’s been getting a lot of wear on my toes recently.
I picked up my bottle of Naughty at Walgreens, for $4.99. But it’s also available in the display that’s popping up at Bed, Bath & Beyond ($3.79) and K-Mart ($4.99), with Stunning and Whimsical. This isn’t one of the harder colors to find, so snatch it up before some other smart chick does!!!
