Hi! Today I present a combination I’ve actually worn a couple of times, because it grew on my (usually) glitter-hatin’ heart.
Revlon Quick Dry Base Coat, 2 coats of Revlon Optimistic (bright pink creme), 1 thick coat of Revlon Graffiti Top Coat (black-and-white matte glitter), and Glisten n’ Glow HK Girl Top Coat. Pictured in indirect natural lighting.
Obligatory bottle shots.
I love this black-and-white glitter top coat! I swatched it over a few different colors on the nail wheel below.
From left to right: 1 coat of Revlon Graffiti Top Coat over OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay, OPI Live.Love.Carnaval, China Glaze For Audrey, butter LONDON Fiver, Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather, and solo.
I think it looks best over brights and pastels, but I was also surprised at how much I liked it over Stormy Weather (a grey creme).
Revlon Optimistic Quick Review
Formula: Great! Only 2 coats needed for full coverage. However, this baby is a stainer (as I found out the hard way), so don’t skip the base coat!
Where to buy: I purchased Revlon Optimistic at my local Walgreen’s. You can find Revlon polishes at just about any drugstore (Rite Aid, CVS, etc.) as well as superstores like Wal-Mart and Target.
Would I wear again? Absolutely! I’ve already worn this on both my fingers and toes multiple times.
Overall: 4.5/5 stars
Revlon Graffiti Top Coat Quick Review
Formula: Thick but workable. I “blob” the glitter onto my fingernail and spread the pieces around instead of painting it straight on like a normal polish.
Where to buy: I purchased Revlon Graffiti Top Coat at my local Walgreen’s. You can find Revlon polishes at just about any drugstore (Rite Aid, CVS, etc.) as well as superstores like Wal-Mart and Target.
Would I wear again? You bet! This glitter looks great over lots of different colors and is totally worth the pain of removal.
Overall: 4/5 stars
I know I’m a bit late to the black-and-white matte glitter train, but I love this one and it’s easy to find! What colors would you put it over?
Thanks for reading!
