Revlon – Gum Drops (With a Dash of Glitter)

Dear Revlon, your scented nail polishes are everything I wanted scented nail polishes to be when I was a youngin’…. No, really, I love them. This is one of the 5 that I own (so far) but I think scent and color wise, it’s probably my favorite!

It’s been a stormy couple days and I wanted something that was playful but fit the mood 🙂 Revlon’s Gum Drop is a soft lavender creme and while it needs 3 coats, it’s a good formula. You’re not fighting with streaks and thickness for that 3rd coat, it’s more that it’s thin (possibly a symptom of being scented?) and 3 quick coats are needed. I also didn’t mind because it made the scent stronger haha. I wish I could take a picture of the scent, but believe me, it’s really yummy, but not so strong as to be obnoxious. I kinda felt like my hands went to Candy Land and I wasn’t really mad that all they came back with for me was this nail polish haha. I had been reorganizing my polish collection after my hauls from last week (50+ bottles in one week…. sales are REALLY dangerous stuff….) and happened to placed my NYC – Starry Silver Glitter next to Gum Drops and they looked meant for each other. I loved this combination. SSG is such a unique glitter in my collection, and pairing it with Gum Drops really brought out the best in it. Read the rest of this entry
