Revlon- Plunge Pool [Swatch]


Here is Revlon- Plunge Pool, an impulse buy that I swooped up a couple weeks ago in Walgreens.



Plunge Pool is part of Revlon's limited edition Summer 2013 collection, called Haute Tropics.   

It's a very vibrant, metallic, medium blue.  It has very fine, lighter aqua shimmer running through it which makes it glow.  It's one of those glowing-from-within polishes that are just amazing.

Artificial light, two coats:



Window-filtered daylight:



Plunge Pool looks dark around the edges, and bright and glowing where the light makes contact with the most elevated portions of the nail. Really beautiful.

Outside, shade:





Formula:  This is on the thinner side, like most Revlons, however it's thicker than many, many Revlons I've tried;  there's not too much danger of it running away to flood the cuticle.  It applies easily and smoothly to the nail, and self-levels pretty well.  I was worried it would be brushstrokey, but I applied it pretty carelessly, and there aren't any brushstrokes- hoorah!

Additionally, it's super, super pigmented, and will be a one-coat wonder for most people!  I did two coats for swatches, just in case.

This polish is a big winner for me- especially for an impulse purchase.  It's going to be amazing on toes!

    1. That whole Revlon collection looks interesting, to be honest...I had trouble deciding between Plunge Pool and a lighter shimmery aqua color.

    1. You know, I just put the swatch sticks side by side, and they are totally similar- good call! Plunge pool is darker and slightly more metallic. I think I prefer it.
