Revlon Whimsical

Good Morning Babes! Today I have a longtime lemming of mine to share with you, well kind of lol. I've wanted GITA for a while now, and if you follow me on Twitter you've seen me mention it from time to time. I just couldn't bring myself to pay almost $20 (well more actually when you calculate in shipping) for a single lacquer when so many great collections have been coming out and I payed that much for the China Glaze and Color Club holiday collections among others. Thank goodness for Revlon and their dupe spree they've been on this year. They've been on a mission slaying these DL's and this time I reap the benefits. Whimsical is an exact dupe for Glitter in the Air by Deborah Lippmann, and my friend Mandy from MandysSecrets (don't sleep on her blog, its amazing) sent it to me as a Christmas gift! Whimsical will never be opaque, so its best when layered. I originally wanted to layer it over Bikini Bottom by Rescue Beauty Lounge because its the exact same color as the base, but those bad boys are the same price as DL, so I will pass on that lol. So I went hunting and found Sea Spray by China Glaze, and have been holding onto it for months until the day where I could splurge on GITA. So thanks to Mandy my lemming has more than been cured! Sea Spray is a light blue toned grey with a gorgeous subtle silver micro shimmer. I love this color so much and can't believe I'm just now swatching it. The formula on this baby is amazing and fully opaque in 1 coat! Can you believe that? A light color with a 1 coat formula! Then I layered 1 coat of Whimsical over SS and I'm in love. I had to persuade the glitter to come out and play but besides that application was no problem. Next time I will add another coat for more glitter but for now I am loving it just like this. Onto the yumminess...

Are you in love? I know I am! My 2 favorite colors in 1 lacquer is love at first sight for me! The fact that its amazing is just the cherry on top! I will swatch Sea Spray on its own and share it on another day, because its just to gorg to not revisit and play with. Ahhh Whimsical is finally mine! Thanks Mandy Girl! Thanks for stopping by to see what I have going on today at P.P.A. :o)
