Today I have for you guys one of the polishes from a Summer 2011 Revlon display I found at Rite Aid last week. The colors in the display are fab and consist of a shimmery yellow, shimmery blue and shimmery orange. I picked up the yellow and blue, I wanted that orange SO bad but am kind of glad I passed after using the other 2 over the weekend. The yellow I'm showing you today is called Sunshine Sparkle. It's a sunny yellow, a bit muted...not super bright. In the bottle it has a gorgeous shimmer and it did translate onto the nail but not as strongly as I had hoped for. I do really enjoy the color even if the shimmer wasn't as wow as I hoped for. And that people is where my love affair ends with this color. The formula was horrible, a streaky nightmare. I know yellow is a pain but this was by far the worst I've ever personally tried. I needed 5 coats to even this sucker out. Then after all that hard work...bubbling. You can't see most of the bubbling in my picture except for 1 giant bubble on my middle finger...but trust me it was there. I probably won't be posting the blue from this collection, it was even worse. I didn't even take pictures of it when I wore it, that's how bad it was.
I have to say, I've only tried 5 Revlon polishes in my entire life. Out of those 5 only 2, Perplex & Royal, have had a decent formula...the other 3 have been nightmares. I probably won't buy another Revlon polish unless the color is something great. I am so disappointed with these 2 summer ones I bought! :(

See...there is that shimmer. Sparse, but there!
