Guest Post by Dhara: Revlon's Popular Nail Polish

Friday, 17 August 2012



The first word that comes to my mind when I see the bottle of Revlon 'Popular' is 'Kawaii' which literally means cute. Popular is a milky pastel pink, jam packed with silver micro glitter and silver small hex glitter. Can it get any better ?? It certainly can, when this kawaii polish goes onto the nail :D

Popular is sheer in application so it takes almost 3 thin coats to make the nail line invisible. The glitter in the layers underneath is visible, making the polish look deep and beautiful. The drying time is pretty average. The subsequent coats took longer than the 1st coat to dry. I waited for 10 minutes between each coats to give the polish sufficient time to dry. I suggest not using 2 thick coats since it will take a long time to dry and chances of ruining the mani will increase. Its very easy to get even application of the glitter since there's a lot of it in the bottle. You wouldn't need to fish for the hex glitter as well! Normally glitter polishes are a pain to remove, this one also requires a little effort but not something as drastic and harmful as the foil claw method. This is a must have for all you light colored polish lovers and dark polish loving beauties, well this will give you a nice break from the darkies :D

Will I repurchase ? YES :D

Rating: 5/5

Dhara's is quite an expert when it comes to nail polishes! I keep telling her to start a blog but no luck yet but if you want to ask her anything you can catch her on Twitter @thehappitherapy. Thank you sooo much D for your awesome review! I love this colour and will definitely be looking out for it in the UK! :-)

Update: Dhara has finally set up her own blog (yay!) and let me tell you chica's, it is good! Check it out here at TheHappiTherapy.blogspot.com.
