Revlon - Whimsical Polish Get!

Hi all! I may be a little late to the party but I finally got my hands on Whimsical!!! :P Ever since I first started seeing it pop up on other Lacquer Lover Blogs I knew I just had to have it. 

With that said I really didn't do it justice by finding the right undercoat >_<;;; I guess I was so excited about finding it that it totally slipped my mind to pick up a suitable color too. So please don't be too horrified, but here is my version of Whimsical :D 

I quickly realized that this was a problem after the first four coats of Whimsical on my bare nail was not doing the color in the bottle justice. So I rummaged around my polish collection and came up empty handed T_T I finally settled to using Sally Hansen - Blue Away. I know, not perfect, but better than nothing.

I'm now convinced I need to buy a more gray toned blue just so I can wear this polish right. :P Just another excuse to buy moarz!!! >D

I really love how this lacquer layers. Since it is so translucent you can see the glitters that came before it which gives great depth to the look.

My other favorite thing about Whimsical is that the glitters aren't overpowering in number, but there are still enough to get decent coverage. I hate it when polishes are too sparse with their dazzle and then you spend half an hour trying to dig out one speck!

While I am no polish professional  I suspect that this is due to the less heavy formula that allows for such easy access to the sparkles. Since, instead of being suspended in a thick clear polish Whimsical seems to be more "runny". Well either well I'm loving it and glad to finally get to see what all the fuss is about.

Final verdict: Definitely Worth the wait! :P 


P.S. Stay tuned~ I'm thinking of doing some fun frenching on this look. I was just too excited that I finally got it on my nail to wait and share :P 


  1. So cute! The sparkles look like polka-dots!

  2. I love this nail polish! I was thinking about maybe layering it with cinderella from Sinful Colors I wonder how that would look. Anyway I really enjoy your blog so I nominated you for the Versatile blogger award! Check it out on my blog <3
